Too much time on my hands

TWIT’s Windows Weekly: Paul Thurrott, Mayjo Foley and Leo LaPorte

As yo can see from the picture in this post. I’ve got a bit too much time on my hands. Leo LaPorte one of the tech figures I’ve been following for the past few years along with the two host’s from Windows Weekly, Paul Thurrott and MaryJo Foley. I added TWITs logo to them as I have a twit phone case and can often times be found sporting a TWIT hoodie.  I wanted to make them a background for my iPad and my laptop. Since most people wouldn’t know the faces but would know the logo around me I opted to add the logo to the background.

Seeing Her!

So yesterday I finally got to go see the girl I’ve been in love with for years. We only got too see each other for about half an hour but It was great to finally see her face to face. We embraced in a hug before leaving and I didn’t want to let her go. I just wanted to hold onto her tight. I’m hoping since Tuesday is my 26th Birthday that I may get to see her again. 

Putting things together

Well it seems that slowly things are coming together. I’ve moved into a new place that I’m in love with. I’ve still been able to get mom to come visit my place which is a bonus. The new place has a sliding glass door in the rear and a balcony. This is my first place that’s mine that has this. I know it seems small buts its welcome feature. All just the fact that this apartment is more of a home size in terms of rooms is great. Like this is actually an apartment home.

There is also going to be some changes coming soon at work but at this time I’m not at liberty to discuss. State tuned for future updates.


This week I moved to Bloomington, In. After having worked here for 1.5 years and always drive 30-60 mins to work one way each day. It’s a nice change to only be 10 minutes down the road from the office. I started moving things in Monday night after work and with my mothers assistance. Tuesday night I also spent moving things in but did so by myself. Tonight I had most of my items moved in….not the furniture yet. So I put things away. The big things I’m left to put away are the clothes that will need to be hung in my bedroom closets. The furniture is coming tomorrow and should bring the place together quite nicely. I need to find an end table for my lamp however as my last end table got broken prior to the move. Well I’ll keep this short for now. Godspeed to you all. -Phil

Old Friends Suck!

So today I was trying to make plans with a girl named Katrina. Someone I’ve been friends with since Middle school even though we don’t always talk a lot. She told me to stop by but then said I could only be there for an hour and wanted me to pick someone up as I went there and left. I told her I’d decline the offer and come visit another time. She got mad and started accusing me of only wanting her to get her into bed. I told her that wasn’t the case at all, that I could care less if we had sex and she went ballistic. Said all men want is sex and that I’m just like all men. That I only want her for her body and that I’m terrible because I won’t come see her tonight. Needless to say, we are no longer talking and she has blocked me on facebook. So old friends really suck sometimes!

Somethings Surprise you…

So since many of you know that I was with Reba and that didn’t work out. I started talking to an Old Flame, one in which we never really resolved our feelings for each other. Upon expressing our feelings we really we were both still mutually attracted to each other. She even left her children’s father to be happy. Well that only lasted about two days then he says… I’ll change. She goes back.


I told her if she went back I wouldn’t be able to take her back after that and now she refuses to talk to me. Out of curiosity I drove by their place today and car was back in his driveway. She was back in his arms and I’m all alone. Why does this surprise me. I don’t know. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. I really want to be with her and I thought she wanted to be with me but now I’m back to square one and wondering was it all a lie? Lord please show me if its meant to be and if it’s not send the right one my way.

Break Ups

Sometimes for they can be for the better. Keep an eye on the blog and see what may be new in my life in the next few months.


Well the only thing I can really say is a benefit to edge over Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox is edge is built in. Edge works like any other web browser however I don’t like that it keeps trying to revert all my searches to bing. I have set all the defaults to google. However if i type in the search bar it brings up bing search. Sorry Microsoft but that’s not what I want. If anyone knows a work around for this let me know.

New Expirement

So today as I was listening to Windows Weekly a TWIT.TV podcast. Paul from discussed people not using the Edge browser built into windows. I’ve decided since I store my log in credentials in LastPass  I’m going to try using the Edge Browser.  Today is day 1 and so far its not to bad. It’s kinda like a blank slate. The bookmarks have not been imported which I purposefully skipped simply because most of my book marks are stored as logins in last pass.

I’m curious if I can last more then a week or if I will revert back to Chrome for Windows 10.

Facebook…Fun and also CREEPY!!!

Hello all of you fine readers. As many of you know I’m very interested in tech outside of my burn camp bubble. Well onto my foray. I had read an article on Flipboard that gave instructions on how to download all the data that Facebook has on you. It took facebook probably 30 mins to compile the request and inform me that the information was ready.  Thanks facebook. Anyways so I downloaded the information and download the data and have been extracting the information. Facebook has quite of bit of information on me and some of the things the “think” I’m interested in is quite funny. They believe I’m both a Republican and a Democrat. No facebook I’m on party, I believe in many of the pillars of that party and the other party is for many of the things I’m against, and against many of the things I’m for. So Facebook fix your algorithm and figure out “me”. Also Facebook all of the contacts I’ve ever had on my phone updated to your servers, that’s a little creepy.
