6th photo on the 6th page


I was tagged by Lessa to show my 6th photo from the 6th page of my Flickr stream, and here it is. Not all that exciting ... it is from an Austin United Capitals soccer camp in Brenham in July 2007, taken on my iPhone and emailed to Flickr.

That email feature is the only reason I use Flickr. I much prefer my Picasa account because I can have unlimited albums, and I really like the embed features it offers.

With my poor math skills, I've deduced that the 6th photo of the 6th page is the 114th photo, so here is my 114th photo in my public Picasa galleries:

From Troop 448 Rifle Merit Badge campout


It is of Boy Scout leaders at a campout in Bastrop at Lost Pines Scout Reserveration. We were there to work on the Rifle Merit Badge.

Testing blog entries from my iPhone



I'm at the UT vs Appalachian State game and the score is 52-30. I'm
bored, so I'm seeing if I can update my blog with my phone. Part of
that New Years Resolution to update this and the family blog more.

UPDATE: I had to come back into the entry to fix the link. It looks like it will convert a url into an href, but you can't write out html. Good enough ... was just testing.

MonoPrice.com a great buy for HDMI

I was blessed enough to receive a Blu-Ray player for Christmas. All excited to hook it up, I sighed as I found the HDMI cable in the box. It was about three feet too short to snake through the wall from my 47-inch Phillips LCD above my fireplace to the component rack next to it.

Off to Best Buy to buy a 10-ft HDMI cable, I was stunned to find the Monster cable costs nearly as much as the player itself. Ridiculous.

I went ahead an bought a rocketfish cable for about $90, still an outrage, and twittered my anger to the social media world.

A buddy I work with replied back to try monoprice.com, which he had heard about on an AVS forum. I was able to find a better cord at one third the price, $32 with shipping. It is supposed to ship today, and hopefully I'll have the new Blu-Ray installed before the weekend closes.
