House Keeping and a Confession

Cleaned up the blog a little bit. Got rid of the Ping (it was eating up bandwidth and slowing down the blog...for me at least) but added a Twitter thingie. Which leads to the confession.

I am a tech junkie. I am utterly, unabashedly addicted to cool techno gadgets. This could be a problem. Probably is a problem. It's moot to say that I don't spend money on them, ya'll know I don't have a ton of cash floating around, but I have to say I'd love to. I'd love to have a rockin' cell that I could access the net from with all the cool little apps to connect me to my favorite online spots. Alas, it is definitely not in the budget.

So I suffer with my little online based fun and my pre-paid cell that lets me text updates to Twitter. This is a good thing really. Especially for May. 'Cause then you can go on my trekking trip with me if you want. Yes, my friends, I will Tweet all the fun I'm having (or not having) while I'm away. Short little updates like "I'm still alive" or "help, bear attack"...you know, the little things that make a solo trip fun.

There you have it...a confessed obsession with everything wrong with the world. I should feel dirty, but I don't! ;P

We've all got our little weaknesses ;)

I never think of myself as a techie, but I do surf the internet from my phone, so perhaps I am. :)

No tweeting yet. We'll see... I already get nothing done at work.

ps. whatever you changed works for me. I couldn't post comments before... java perhaps? Who knows, but now I can say hello!!!

Ah, Meadowlark...you are a slight techie, lol.

Twitter is slightly addictive, but I've limited myself to following less than 30 with a few of those being news sources (papers and magazines) and an admitted few 'celebrities' because they make me laugh.

P.S. probably was the java, that code was massive.
