Spent a while on eBay this weekend. Bid on some wireless (802.11g) routers, a repeater, and a terrific Hugo Boss sport coat. We are preparing to go highspeed here on the digital ranch in the next week and we are having fun getting ready. We are going to bring the signal to the house and then boost the signal over to the office. I will use a Buffalo router connected to a Buffalo (WDS) repeater. If I need the extra boost I will get a Cantenna (probably also off eBay). This will be terrific!
Won the Hugo Boss sport jacket. What a deal!!! Paid under $10, coat cost $850 new. Hope that it looks as good as it did on the net. If not you will see a great Hugo Boss coat on eBay real soon. But if it does, I will be one sharp looking digital guy.

New Question: If a man blogs on his site and no one reads it, is it valid?
Tonight I was updating my site and my beloved walks up behind me to see what I am doing (accountability check more than anything). She saw my blog and said "Oh, that's neat!" Never saw it before. I have run this as a word-of-mouth kind of thing and never really promoted it. Mostly because it isn't 1% of what I want it to be. But, you would think that your own wife/roommate/partner/lover etc. would notice.
So the digital tree continues to fall, I continue to blog, even if only for my own enjoyment.

Why is there no such thing as Northern Gospel?
When Bill and Hillary first got married Bill said, 'I am putting a box under the bed. You must promise never to look in it.'
In all their 30 years of marriage Hillary never looked. However, on the afternoon of their 30th anniversary, curiosity got the best of her and she lifted the lid and peeked inside. In the box were 3 empty beer cans and $81,874.25 in cash. She closed the box and put it back under the bed. Now that she knew what was in the box, she was doubly curious as to why.
That evening they were out for a special dinner. After dinner Hillary could no longer contain her curiosity and she confessed, saying, 'I am so sorry. For all these years I kept my promise and never looked into the box under our bed. However, today the temptation was too much and I gave in. But now I need to know, why do you keep the cans in the box?'
Bill thought for a while and said, 'I guess after all these years you deserve to know the truth. Whenever I was unfaithful to you I put an empty beer can in the box under the bed to remind myself not to do it again.'
Hillary was shocked, but said, 'Hmmm, Jennifer, Paula and Monica. I am very disappointed and saddened but temptation does happen and I guess that 3 times is not that bad considering the years.'
They hugged and made their peace.
A little while later Hillary asked Bill, 'So why do you have all that money in the box?'
Bill answered, 'Well, whenever the box filled up with empty cans, I took them to the recycling center and redeemed them for cash.'
Good night! Logging off...
Whenever I say something about wanting to go over 200mph someone inveriably says "why would you want a car that goes that fast when you can't go over 65mph?" It's kind of like asking how much a car costs. If you can't afford it, don't ask. Well, if you have to ask the question about how fast a car goes then you wouldn't understand the need to have one that goes that fast!
True, I rarely get the opportunity to take my baby to the top end. But it is the thrill of knowing that it is there. Had a kid in a rice burner toy with me last week, what a joke. Some kid puts a loud muffler and some ground effects on a Civic and he thinks he's a street racer. He bragged that his top end was 120mph. How sad.
Time to look at some muscle cars and then get back to bed.

I had this idea that I was going to relaunch TheDigitalLife as one big launch, I think that right now that I will take baby steps. I have some neat things that I want to do, it will just have to happen one step at a time while I am traveling so much.
