What you do is how you look

If you know me you'll know that I try and find the lighter side of things.  It's just who I am.  I'm that crazy person stuck in traffic laughing at everyone else getting frustrated.  I don't do it to be mean, I just find it rather amusing.  People really do amuse me to no end with the things they do and what they make important.  Their actions speaks volumes about them but something tells me that might not be their real selves they are showing.  Not to say that I'm perfect or that everyone I encounter is this way, but a surprising number or people are.

There are plenty of times that I get caught up in the moment and let it get the best of me.  Who knows maybe I'm just seeing those people in their moment?  If that's the cause then there are a lot of people having those moments all the time.

I just think that life is too short and precious to spend your time and energy getting frustrated by traffic, rude actions, parking spaces, line cutters, loud stereos and all that sort of stuff.  Seek out the positives.  It's not easy all the time, but it gets easier over time.  That's my advice for today.

So...

After all the dust settled a bit from the storm of rough news, things have started to work themselves out a bit.  My friend with the brain hemorrhage is awake.  Which is great news!  I hope to visit him tomorrow.

My dad has chosen a path and found a great doctor/surgeon that he is very pleased with, so all is going as according to plan as possible.

I'm just sort of in survival mode really.  Just taking it piece by piece and day by day.  Waiting to see what comes next.  Hoping that there are no surprised along the way.  I hope that all 8 of you are doing well and are sleeping better than I am tonight.  Heh.  Fear not I'm sure sleep will find me at some point and I'm off tomorrow...err...today so, no work to worry about.  Hopefully I'll get enough sleep to allow me to get some stuff done around the house tomorrow.  We'll see what happens.

Good night!  Well I'm just off to try and pass the time for now...

With 100 Drobos

With 100 Drobos I would create my own small hosting company for file storage.  This would of course be after I built a gigabit ethernet LAN to support them, and worked with Verizon FiOS to up my speed to their new secret 100-150Mbps up/down speeds.  All this would be needed to allow the Drobos to properly breathe.  Would also build more than a hand full of powerful servers (always wanted to do that) to run things on the network.  I know the Drobos are smart but you have to have management with such a large team of experts.  Oh and let's not for get the cooling, perhaps a third AC unit would be in order!  Who knows I might even name them all and give them faces.  You never know with me.
