I hate daylight savings with a passion

I so hate daylight savings, I am still on old time, it's only 2:30a for me. I hate that it's dark at like 7p.

Guess what kids, I'm back.

So I was gonna let this blog die.....but

This made me decide to post again. I just saw a commercial on FOX11, it was a commercial for the upcoming 10 o'clock news. What was the huge story, the war, impeachment hearings, the weather? NO it was for this

They thought that there was no other news to cover tonight so they went an tried to interview the singer! Apparently nothing else happened today. This is why FOX news is such a joke. I mean this kind of crap belongs on Entertainment Tonight or some other garbage "news" show that is all about the all important celebrities.

Oh and the new seasons of The Simpsons, Family Guy and King of the Hill started tonight and they did not disappoint. Also for the first time in 19 years The Simpsons changed their intro, and it was good.

Get your speakers ready, this is sick

Hey there, it's been a minute, but I'm back and here's something I think a few of you may enjoy.

Be sure to have your speakers turned on. This is not one of those stupid "spooky noises, turn it up loud" things. This is a real car that sounds amazing.

That is a 331 Hemi running around in Orange with open headers, or for the non-car-savvy, NO MUFFLERS!! LOUD!

Oh and Chris I think Jeff and I have decided we need to build three of these instead of getting motorcycles.

Ok kids, time to backup that data

Like the title says, it's that time of year again to start regularly backing up your data. Hard drive space is cheap. Go get another drive and backup all of your important files to it.

"But Eric, I don't have anything really important. I won't miss anything."

Really? what about those important emails that you saved to your computer? Those pictures you took at that huge event? Those iChat transcripts? (for blackmail purposes).

"Hmm maybe I would like to keep all that, but only for blackmail purposes though. But it's so hard to do I don't know where all that stuff is."

If you have a MAC and an external firewire drive, you're most of the way there. You need SuperDuper!
It will make an exact working copy of your hard drive. If your drive dies or OSX takes a major dump you can get up and running off the firewire drive. Then you can copy your working backup over your broken system then your done, back up and running.

The ONLY down side is it's for OSX only. Oh and it's free for the basic backup usage.

I reorganized all my data, cleaned up the laptop hard drive, and made a backup onto one of my drives that I've dedicated to being a working backup. I got lucky last time when my drive died and I got everything back. Don't want to tempt fate again. I also used it as an excuse to get another Lacie D2 drive, that makes 3 D2 drives now.

And here it is

That stack is 748Gb of external storage.

If you have a Mac you need to go download this software and put it to use. It may just save your butt one day.

Ok it's been a while

I have nothing much to say, but came across this little quiz and was curious to see if anybody reading this has an accent.
What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The West

Your accent is the lowest common denominator of American speech. Unless you're a SoCal surfer, no one thinks you have an accent. And really, you may not even be from the West at all, you could easily be from Florida or one of those big Southern cities like Dallas or Atlanta.

The Midland
North Central
The South
The Inland North
The Northeast

Though I am highly annoyed that boston ranked third in my accent. I can't stand the accents from around that region of the states, boston, new york, philly. I also don't like that new carl's jr. commercial for the philly cheese steak. They just sound ignorant.

Oh also can't stand the French accent either.

Edit: here's the link, since they decided to make the link in the box a dumb color. "What American Accent Do You Have?
