24 Hour Vacation

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I had to do some work in Nanaimo/Comox and decided to drive all the way to a place called Mystic Beach where some of my friends were staying for the weekend.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The property was spectacular, 2 residences, a massive rustic cabin and a brand new, beautifully appointed beachfront house.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spent a night in the cabin, it was magical.

Bump

My shin has a bump the size of my knee, a tennis incident.

Ducati.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Quite possibly the nicest, and the coolest bike I have ever seen. Parked in front of an old folks home??? on Beach Dr.

 

Party In Vancouver

Played at a party in Vancouver last Sat. Possibly the best time I’ve ever had. My buddy Darek, the opening DJ was absolutely amazing. He played a hardware only Live PA Techno set, super cool. I ended up playing just after midnight, a little mix of Progressive and Trance till the end of the party.

So much great food, really hot people, a truck load of all different types of booze, a VERY angry cop-lady threatening to confiscate our gear, madness, total mayhem!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All of our gear, I brought my CDJ1000’s and my XONE62, he brought all the rest, some really cool stuff.

Knob Update

Shifter knob has been replaced by the dealer quick and hassle free. Now the drivers side power window motor is making a weird noise. Going to make an appointment next week. Ohh the joy.

Bought The DIR-655 Today

Bought this bad boy today. The media server is finally running at gigabit speeds and on the laptops, even with the “draft N” I’m getting 3 times the throughput of my old school “G” router. Eagerly awaiting new firmware to take advantage of the USB port on the back.

Bad Dealer Update

Had to complain a little, the mechanic seemed genuinely sorry. Apparently the shifter knob is very hard to remove and even more awkward to install. He ordered me a replacement.

Bad Dealer

First it was the loose center console, whilst fixing the console they break the shifter boot, while replacing the boot they scratch the console, while fixing the console and the boot they break my shifter.

This has taken four appointments, each time losing the vehicle for a day. Now I have to go back tomorrow and get them to order the shifter handle, wait for it to arrive and once again lose the car for a day waiting for them to install it.

Ohh, the car is barely a year old and it’s already gone through three recalls.

Got Me Some EEE

This is an incredible piece of hardware, extremely compact (makes my 12 inch Acer notebook look like a monster), SSD hard drive, webcam, and a long lasting battery. It runs on a very easy to use variant of Linux called Xandros and seems to be %100 compatible with my Windows XP based home network. I was able to open Excel and Word documents with ease off a thumbdrive and off my network. WiFi setup was a snap as was installing and updating applications from the Internet.

This thing is dirt cheap, a great traveling companion, highly recommended!!

The only thing missing is a GPS and the 8GB SSD is a little tight!!!
