I'm all over the place here guys, so sorry if it's hard to stick with what I'm saying.

I'm alive, so is Becky.

We're doing well.

Last weekend, we played with virtual go karts on the wii with one set of friends, then drove real ones with a different set.

Please register to vote. Do it. Now. Yes, now. Procrastinating on this is not something you want to do, as most states have a requirement that you be registered for at least 30 days prior to the election. If you don't know how, visit the website of the candidate that interests you the most, they all have a link on their site to register to vote. If you don't want to do that, here's a lengthy form that is universal and contains the specific rules for all 50 states.

Felons can vote in most states once their sentence is complete. If you need to know more about felon disenfranchisement, and whether it applies to you, or someone you know, here's a good summary

No updates on 1+1=3.

We had a taco and meteor party last night. It was pretty sweet.

My sister's baby is cute. She had it over a month ago, but this is topical because Saturday is her baby shower.

My 10 meter rig needs to have its mic fixed, and then I'll be on HF. Still just a tech, but if I can find the interest, maybe I won't be for long. :)

I made a number of life simplifying accomplishments at work in the last week or two. Maybe later this year I can actually take some time off. That'd be awesome.

I thought this was interesting. I don't hate the guy, I just think he did something stupid. If he succeeds, more power to him. Either way, from everything I've heard, this makes sense. (I am not quoted, anonymously or otherwise, in that article, for the record)

Guys, that's the coolest thing ever. Sprint's coming out with a CDMA picocell you can put in your house near a window (you need GPS reception for CDMA to work right, unless you have a stratum 1 primary reference source kicking around), slap onto your internet connection, and basically put your cell coverage anywhere you want. This is awesome. It even supports 1xRTT data.

I've been wanting something like this to come out for a while – it only makes sense. This blows away T Mobile's offering that uses 802.11b/g wireless, because this works with ANY sprint CDMA phone. You don't have to get a special phone to make it work.
