A quick note…

Once upon a time, I had a Palm TX.  I loved it, it was so useful to me.  I had all my music and videos loaded on it, all my schedules, phone numbers, etc.  I even taught it to tether to my cell phone and surf the Internet.  Then somebody stole it.  I was heart-broken.  Out of all the things stolen from my house that day, that was the most personal.  That was two and a half years ago, and I never replaced it or picked up another PDA.  The closest I came was a nice MP3/video player.

Until now.

I now own a Samsung Galaxy S (specifically the 'Captivate' from AT&T).  It does all of that and more and has a much more satisfying user experience.  I am still playing with it and discovering all the possiblities.  I will do a complete write-up in a few days.  Until then, just know that my heart has been healed.


More good news!

I got accepted into the 'Star Wars: The Old Republic' beta test.  For those of you that don't know, SW:TOR is a Massively Multi-player Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) set in the, ta da!, Star Wars universe.

I've always loved Star Wars, it was the very first movie I remember watching (I was three years old), and I've enjoyed the not-MMO computer RPGs, like Knights of the Old Republic I and II.  So, I am really looking forward to this time in Beta.  My guess is that it will last at least six months, probably more.  I will keep y'all updated.

Is blogging about blogging really blogging?

That is the question that haunts my dreams.  Okay, not really.  It is clear, however, that I am wasting my TypePad Pro account, since I have to posted anything since November.  Novemeber people!  That's, like, almost 9 months ago.  Some people that were not even pregnant the last time I posted are about to give birth.  Outrageous!

So, I declare August 2010 to be "CosmicDog's Awareness Blogging Month".  I will post 'something' here at least once everday.  I promise.  To myself.

Wish me luck, folks!

NaNoWriMo 2009

I've officially started writing my novel for National Novel Writing Month, though I believe that I shall start dinner as well.  My goal is to get out about 2000 words a day, which, if I truly write every day, will either have me complete the NaNoWriMo challenge by 11/25/2009 or complete 60,000 words, 10,000 more than the challenge.  And, no, while I may be tempted to do so, I will not post my story here as I am writing it.  I'm going to keep it private for a while, until I'm satisfied that it's somewhat readable and make at least a little sense.  Have fun doing whatever it is that you're doing!

Hi, I’m a nerd.

This should not surprise anyone that knows me personally.  I'm a nerd.  Why the sudden proclamation of the obvious?  Well, a friend of mine gave me an old G3 iMac a couple of months ago and I updated it to OSX 10.4.11.  It's *super* slow and the graphics suck, but I went ahead and added WiFi (not Airport) so that I could use it in my library/scary room.  I have absolutely no reason or constructive use for this machine, yet I am exploding with geeky joy to have it up and running.

I am such a nerd.
