Mists of Avalon

Just started reading Mists of Avalon after it being recommended by some friends and a number of sites on the net. I should enjoy it, considering the setting is one I enjoy.

Still looking...

Take more pictures (read all 2 entries…)

Definitely worth doing, and I hope to keep it up, even if I the camera ends up dying. :)

Take more pictures (read all 2 entries…)
Lots and lots...

I’ve taken almost 1500 pictures in the last month and a half. Of course, about half are duds but I’m definitely getting off my butt and taking more pics than I have before. Basically making more time for it.

Find it kind of funny that I know alot of photography, aperature, shutter speeds, etc, yet up until recently I just haven’t taken the time to take pictures with my Panasonic FZ5.

Update my blog regularly
Well, sort of...

Well, I have sort of been doing this lately, although I really haven’t done much else with the blog (looks wise).

More concern with getting my PC up and working perfectly with everything I need, and dumping Windows completely.

If I can make at least one post every week, I think I will be on track, and can just improve beyond that as time goes by.

Great resources for Python.

I find it incredible how many free online books there are for Python. Check out my weblog at where in the last post or two I noted the four best ones I have found so far.

A Tough Goal

No matter what, I always end up saving some money but I usually end up spending it. Bills get paid, but I don’t have any kind of savings if something was to happen and I needed it.

Lately, I needed to pay for a prescription. A $102 dollars less, left me in a very tight position the week after.

Hence the reason for trying to start saving more!

Find a special someone (read all 2 entries…)

I’m one of those silly people who doesn’t go out of his way looking for a relationship, because I believe that one day I will just find someone that is perfect. Not likely, and pretty silly, I know.

It is hard though going without that feeling of closeness(is that even a word?) once you have had a few times in your life.

Only time will tell I suppose on this goal.

Byte of Python

Started going through the free online book, called Byte of Python. Great so far, although it possibly helps that although I never mastered C/C++ I’ve had dealings with off and on over the last ten years or so.

Still hard to not use { }, but I’m getting over it. It helps that I can whip together a few quick scripts in a matter of minutes.
