the corbin dallas multi task

I know what needs to be done today, and I plan on having it all done and then some. Waking up a little earlier than expected makes the everyday tasks easier to complete.

I can stay busy for the rest of the day, the rest of the week, and the week after, then the month, then the years. You know how it goes: Wake up. Do stuff. Sleep. Repeat.

the 4-pack of 4gb flash drives 4 $25 | buy.com

The mobility and easy access of USB flash drives make them one of the best candidates for transporting data. We just invested in this 4-pack of Kingston DataTraveler 4GB USB flash drives. We use them for school, general data storage, and even to run operating systems like Ubuntu on.

When you have to copy data from one location to another that are not networked, then you will need another fast and reliable method. Uploading and downloading using the internet can take some time and additional effort depending on the resources available. Burning the data onto a recordable disc will also take more time than necessary and then even more time to be copied off that disc onto the machine.

The Generation 3 series of Kingston DataTraveler flash drives exhibits faster read/write speeds than the predecessors. Kingston manufactures dependable computer memory solutions, and their flash drives always go on sale because they are always in demand and constantly being improved. The Kingston DataTraveler line of flash drives are also backed with a five-year warranty, so they’re guaranteed to fulfill your storage needs.

Order yourself a 4-pack of these 4GB flash drives for only $24.95 and free shipping while supplies last. That’s about $6.25 each! If you were to buy individual flash drives of this size and superior quality, then you’ll be looking at spending around $10 each and then possibly sales tax plus shipping. Kingston DataTraveler is the flash drive series I choose to rely on for high-quality, compact disk space.

the iron stomach

Shortly after I posted about EZ’s Brick Oven & Grill this past Sunday, I decided to fill out their comment card online. For the feedback section, I just copied the section of my post about my undercooked burger. I received a voicemail the next day from the general manager of that location. He was apologetic and wanted to make everything right. I returned his call, and we set up a meeting time for the next day which was convenient for me since I was going to be in the area around that time.

When I stopped in on Tuesday, he shook my hand and offered me food on the house. I told him that I had already eaten. We sat at a table, and he reiterated what he said on the phone the day before. I explained from my perspective that burgers should not be pink when ordered from a restaurant. I also mentioned that my brother had ordered the smaller size of the same burger and the patty was pink as well. He asked me about everyone else’s food. I took a short moment to recall and told him that it was OK which really meant no big complaints from them. He then gave me his business card with four Be My Guest complimentary entree cards. Score.

Before I started writing this post, I decided to skim through the Yelp reviews. One of the reviews actually mentioned an undercooked burger patty, so that issue must be part of their reputation. I’m iffy to return but most likely will. I can’t pass up on a complimentary meal for four. I told myself that I’d order a burger to give them another chance at burgers, but after reading that review, I may just go with a pizza.

EZ’s was actually our second choice to dine in since the amazing Thai place up the street was packed to the gills (as usual), EZ’s was nearby, and I’ve never eaten their food before. I noticed that they weren’t busy at all between 8-9pm on a Saturday night, and when I stopped in at 6pm on Tuesday, they weren’t very busy either. I guess the word has made its way around that EZ’s is overall subpar food, and the nearby competition is just stomping them. Sigh.

the greener rechargeables | buy.com

Even though most electronics we use daily have built-in and proprietary batteries or simply plug into the wall, many other devices still use classic batteries to perform their duties. Think portable radios, remote controls, and some digital cameras. Even third-party video game console controllers also use regular AA batteries.

Why spend more on single-use batteries when you can invest in some rechargeable batteries and a charger that will eventually pay for themselves? A Rayovac charger is on sale now for $19 and also includes a 12-pack of rechargeable AA batteries. This is a great deal since other 4-pack rechargeables that you find at other popular electronics or grocery stores sell for around ten dollars by themselves.

Charge up to four AA or AAA rechargeable batteries of any brand with this charger that has an LED indicator to let you know when the charge is complete. The batteries also work with any charger that fits them. Next time you need to restock on batteries, consider investing in rechargeable batteries. They’re a better choice for the planet because they make less waste, and they’re a better choice for your wallet because they cost less with the number of charges you get out of them versus their equivalence in single-use batteries.

Learning computer programming is essentially learning foreign languages.

Traffic was terrible in Austin yesterday. I spent over an hour on the road traveling from North Austin to Downtown. When the rain falls, many Austin drivers become too cautious. I’m a cautious driver myself, but I am able to maintain a reasonable speed limit even in unfavorable weather conditions.

I commute to Downtown twice a week to a class that starts shortly after 7pm. I can choose to arrive early before the traffic jams get worse, or I can deal with a congestion that can get so annoying your head will spin. I have stubbornly chosen the latter since this semester started. What a waste of time. What a waste of fuel. It’s just something I deal with every week to enjoy everything else in my life.

My goddaughter’s father emailed me some videos of her laughing. Adorable. We look forward to seeing her next month. I said that in my last somewhat personal update on here, didn’t I? Yep. Still excited. Peace out.
