Add to Google Button!


So, because I know everyone who reads this wants to read it ALL THE TIME, I have a added a nice "Add to Google" button to the sidebar on this page. It looks like this:

This will allow you to add my blog as an XML feed to your Google Homepage or Google reader! You should definitely do that since I am SO cool ;) Or if you just want to...

Thermalright HR03-GT


So, normally I am not one of those people who likes to modify computer parts from their stock configuration, but this thing is making me think twice.

How only is it TOTALLY cool looking, but its reasonably priced and gets GREAT performance.

It requires removing all of the stock heat-sinks from my $350 video card, thus totally negating any warranty I might have.

But just look at the performance:

I mean, this thing is TOTALLY wicked! I think it is safe to assume that this can be added to my birthday list. It can be bought from

The Panaflo H1A-BX would be a great fan to pair it with...

Thanks, and goooooodnight.

Christmas Tales...


Well, Christmas is over. And boy was this an exhausting Christmas season.

At the end of the day, I think everyone I shopped for liked their gifts, except for maybe my sister, who needs to swap hers out. I got out-gifted big time. Oh well...

My brother made out like a bandit though! He got a table saw (I'm pretty excited about that one!), a creeper, and some money toward his new toolbox at Lowes. Good for you Ben!

I did pretty well myself! I got a PS3! Woohoo! Thank you, Alicia :) I love you!

I got a PS3, with Spiderman 3 on Blu-ray, as well as Assassin's Creed!

I got the Icy-Dock that I wanted so bad! Thanks Mr. and Mrs. Heller!

I also got some barstools, some clothes, some decorative stuff, a cookbook (complete with a recipe for jalapeƱo poppers!), some gift certificates, a new skillet, and some other cool stuff. Go me!

Thanks to everyone who gave me a gift! I love them all!

Now, there is the matter of my upcoming birthday. Should you feel inclined to get me a gift, I thought I would put together a little list of birthday wishes:

Guitar Hero 3 Bundle PS3
Rock Band kit for PS3
The Green Mile (blu-ray)
The Matrix (blu-ray)
Top Gun (blu-ray)
Speaker stands for my rear speakers
Ipod Hookup for my car: ( Link ) and ( Link )

I'm sure there's more, but that is what came to mind...

Anyway, I guess I should get to work now. Thanks to all who helped to make my holiday special...

Oh, Merry Christmas to all, and a happy new year!

Carol of the bells


This is my favorite Christmas song, and this rendition of it is the bomb!

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas tree


So, Alicia and I have put up our first (of many we hope!) Christmas tree! She surprised me with it a a few days ago and we finally got around to decorating it. I have to admit, I am impressed with us! It looks awesome! Yoda and Darth Vader do add a lot, but it is definitely awesome!

Let me know what you think!

End of Year Celebration


So, last night was the Cheniere Energy End-of-Year Celebration. It was at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.


I know what you are thinking, but it really wasn't that bad! There was all the free booze you could drink (until 10:30 anyway), lots of good food like alligator skewers, duck quesadillas, and crab cakes! :D

There were cool things to look at like dead dinosaurs and Lucy (who is pretty hott...). There was good music, good company, and all-in-all, I'd say it was a good party. I did miss Dana Carvey though...

Here is the thing: There were TONS of people there that I had never seen before...ever. I have been at Cheniere for almost 4 years now, and used to know everyone. My how times have changed... I guess when you are good at infrastructure, people shouldn't know who you are.

Anyway, that's enough of this. Party on, Wayne. Party on, Garth.

Car Repair


So, for those of you who don't know, I managed to back into a pole the other day :( I smashed the left-rear taillight up pretty bad, and put a HUGE dent in the bumper...

But today, with the help of my brother, we put in a new taillight and fixed the huge dent. There are still a few dings and scuff marks, but all in all, I'd say things are good to go. YAY! :)

Now those pesky police won't give me a ticket during my long drive to work ;)

Thanks Ben!

Housewarming Party [Updated]


I would like to say thank you to everyone who attended my housewarming party! You have definitely made me feel all "warm" and fuzzy :)

Seriously though, it was good times! I really enjoyed having you all there, and the gifts are wonderful! I hope you enjoyed the Chili, and thanks again Dad for last year's Christmas present!

I still have plenty of chili left if anyone wants to come over and have some. I am *almost* done cleaning my apartment after 5 bags of garbage and 4 runs of the dishwasher.

I still have AN ENTIRE COOLER left of beer, so I need some help with that too.

Again, thanks to all who attended, and to those of you who didn't, it was your loss ;)

See pictures:
