Do you RSS?

I am a huge fan of RSS. If you are not using it, you obviously don't know how to find the information you want on the web quickly and effectively. I prefer Google Reader because it's web based, their is no software to install, it's easy to navigate, and if you already use G-mail or another Google utility/application then you already have it. This page would be a good place to get started on how to use RSS. It's a video that explains it as simple as possible and also gives you a sort of visual representation of how it works. Below is a screen shot of my Google Reader on a feed from CNN's website. Also, on the right side of this blog are the items in my RSS that I share and have fed to this blog, so with the reader you can always mark it as a favorite and/or share it and can always come back to the story, just like a bookmark/favorite in your web browser.

A beautiful weekend

Friday I had the day off and it turned out to be a beautiful weekend out here. I picked Kylar up early in the afternoon with Miranda on Friday but not before stopping at DQ for a few French Vanilla Moo-Lates. (They are delicious might I add) Saturday we went out to Edgewater park and Kylar played on the beach and walked around in the water. Took some pictures and I will try and get those up on his site soon. Sunday had to be the nicest day this year (weather wise) and we went out to the Hinkley metro park for a walk. After that, headed out to Lodi park and we ended up running into our friends Ben and Krista. Chilled with them for a bit and headed back to relax and finish the day out.

Warranty woes

I was listening to the radio this morning (99.5 wgar) and they were talking about extended warranty's and how they can end up not helping you out. An example would be you buy a refrigerator from Best Buy and you pay for the extended warranty. Lets say it decides to break on you (inside of the extended warranty) and you call up the number they give you on your warranty, which they then refer you to a company that is close in your area to repair the fridge. You call the company and tell them your fridge is broke and you have the extended warranty plan. That instantly tells them they are going to take their good ol' time to come out and probably won't be out to fix it for a few weeks to even a month. The reason being, is because with those warranty's they have to fill out paper work and send it out to collect their money which can take a while. Where as if you don't mention anything about a warranty (or you don't have one), they will probably be there the next day or so because they know they are getting paid right away, whether it be cash, check, credit, etc... So the moral of the story is don't mention anything about a warranty until the very end of your call, AFTER the appointment has been made to repair it. While I have not experienced this myself, just a few words I thought I might pass on to help a warranty buyer out. If anyone has experienced this type of issue before, please feel free to comment.

It's been a very busy day at work today. I'm still recovering from a slight cold that I have had for the past few days. Just a runny nose, but it seems to be getting better. This past Friday was when it started and I didn't feel good at all, body ache, headache, runny nose/congestion. For some reason this week has just been dragging by and I am ready for the weekend to come.

After the VA Tech incident, people were buying domain names related to the incident to try and make a few extra bucks by pawning them off afterwards. (very sad)

Case of the Monday's

This past weekend was pretty good besides my car deciding to want to cost a pretty penny to fix the right rear wheel and hub bearings, control arm and tail arm. Looking for a new place to move here soon. By the end of the month actually. Enough of my ranting, have a look below...
