Back to WHS basics

Well in light of the fast approaching beta expiration of Windows Home Server "Vail", I rolled my WHS back to version 1 for now. If the RC turns out to be decent I might upgrade to the final version via Technet later this year. Better to be safe right now until we know the best ways to replace drive extender for storage.

The picture are up from our trip

We went down to Vancouver yesturday to put together the aforementioned baby furniture. Beautiful drive down along I-5. Was decent to put together, but over all not too bad. The trip back was full of rain, snow, and indigestion resulting in multiple stops. Not a huge fan of the Vancouver Mall Taco Time now though.

The photos can bee seen, as well as all the others I've posted, at photos.jento.mobi

Speedy Delivery & Assembly Service

Today we head south with this furniture. Found a great deal, but now we have put it together. Long drive but it will be worth doing it, if only for the opportunity to take more pictures of the family. Now we can say we have better pictures then the rest of you! *Evil Laugh*. Also, I can hopefully get farther in to my current book on the 3 hour drive.Cryptonomicon.

Slowly killing the carbs and food-like foods

I finished reading "Why We Get Fat" by Gary Taubes and have decided to try to move towards the eating advice given.  I'm going to start slowly because most of what I need to cut tastes so good!  I hope to start getting my weight down a bit and this might help me do it.
I followed it up by Michael Pallen's book "In Defense of Food" and that is helping me in ways to eat better as well.

Baby furniture shopping is hard

Spent 2 days already and going in to a third looking for a decent crib and add-ons for my cousins grandson (wow that makes me seem old). Lots of crappy stuff out there! Were are all the quality baby items anymore? The kid can break them all already. Well hopefully today goes better.

Picked and dumped

Got selected for the panel, went in for first day of trial, all were excused! Trial postponed for 30 days. I didn't want so sit on a sexual assault of a minor case anyway. Back to the grind Thursday.

Jury Duty is dull

I have decided that jury duty is a bit dull. But, I do get $10 a day...(insert fake cheer here)

Well more to come once it's over. Talk to you Wednesday...maybe

Finally the eReaders are bought

We settled on two sharper image literati readers to take care of Mom and Kelly. I am thinking of a Kobo for myself since they are smaller without the hardware keyboard and use e-ink to save power.
The patches look great and set well.
Found out I will be going to jury duty Monday but it's not that bad...except that I have to be up at 5am
