Google Reader

I had been using Flock to read newsfeeds, but had problems with it. I am now using Google Reader and it is working great.

One nice feature is sharing interesting items in this blog. These items are on bottom right as "goldsheet's shared items" Anything that makes things easier appeals to me !

No Reason to Jump Into Housing Crash Too Soon

Nothing like jumping on an 8% discount, then see folks get a 19% discount, then see homes go for 31% below first phase buyers. As usual, instead of accepting responsibility, lash out at others on Internet.

Crash

Have not updated my blog in about a week.  just busy with the normal stuff until Thursday morning when my computer died.  

Nothing like a bad hard drive in a RAID 0 system, which means I had to start over from scratch.  It was not too bad removing RAID, formatting the remaining drive, and reinstalling Windows.  The Dell website was not too helpful, but the video drivers from the NVidia site and Soundblaster drivers from the Creative site seem to work great.   It took lots of time reinstalling all of my programs, then getting all the data back (yes, I had a backup of everything) 

Nothing like feeling you lost an entire day of your life.
