Texas Roadhouse review for 12.11.11

Texas Roadhouse review for 12.11.11
We walked in and were seated promptly and taken care of pretty fast. The look of the place is neat, it's dark, has lots of country type décor, it's more rowdy then Longhorn Steakhouse, and it has peanuts you can throw on the floor. The shells on the floor were a nice touch LOL.
I got a portabella chicken meal and it came with 2 sides. I ordered a loaded baked potato and a salad.
My salad was crisp and fresh and has eggs and cheese and ranch dressing. My loaded baked potato was really good. Came pretty loaded.
The Portabella chicken was really good, but not as good as Longhorn Steakhouse. It had a decent consistancy and tasted really good. The Sauce was strong, but good. The shrooms were not as cheesey and they werent as big.
My hubby had the same thing and his was good. Instead of a salad he had house fries and they were ok.
Our service was decent.. not the friendliest, but adequate. Not much to report on it... she did the job. They were…

Time for Tech--->What headphones do you recommend?

I get asked this question a lot.... here's a quick answer:


 I recomend pioneer, senhieser, and kilpsch and jvc headphones

for regular heaphones JVC FLats are very good cheap 12 dollar headphones and they are at wal-marts.... I have a pair and they are small, but have a little islolation becuase they have a little cup over the part of your ear. They even fit in one of my smaller purses.

stay away from skullcandy they got terrible sound and are very easy to blow. my lil bro has some curcum-aurals from them and they blew out really quick. they grind and sound like crap with bass. he has 2 pairs and one of them are non-blown out but they still sound like crap I gotta turn up the volume all the way to hear anything and it sounds muddy and grindy with HUGE high freq. cutoff. and the low range sounds boomy.

for regular heaphones all around sehnieser, and JVC are good picks.

starter list: IEMs:

Pioneer SE-CL721-H 3.5mm Connector In-Ear DJ Inspired Stereo Headphones
Sennheiser CX 215 3.5mm…

Time for Tech--->Can nintendo be saved?

A popular Japanese-based game console company is facing new competitors as well as old adversaries in the game industry. It releases a new console product with with some revolutionary features. But despite the superiority of the product, the general public decides to move to other platforms, even when the company cuts the price of the console drastically.


They also keep releasing new DS's over and over. the original DS, the DS lite, the DSi, and now the 3DS.  The wii has little hardcore games.

 launch day wii owner here and my wii is now collecting dust.

most of the games were gimmacky and cheap feeling.

very few hardcore games were made for the wii. I own 8 games and I have no interest in playing them anymore. they wore out quick,

the one I got the most enjoyment out of was elebits and zelda twlight princess. the rest I didn't care for that much.

Longhorn steakhouse review for 10.23.11

Longhorn steakhouse review for 10.23.11
we drove a long time (almost 2 hours from our current location) to go here.... welll we had a business trip over here and it's almost worth the drive on its own!
Anyways after a long blissful trip over there (but the day was a little rough before the trip LOL)
we made it here and were seated quick and we ordered some coffees me and my sister both got coffee. They didn't have enough sugar packets though so we asked for those and they gave us some and we had our coffee however we asked another time for our second cups and we didn't have enough creame that time so it was kinda funny that we asked for a lot of sugar, however it was not a problem for our wiatress! She catered to it just fine....
then we waited a bit but not too l0ng (apprx 20 minutes) for our food and we chowed down....
I ordered a portabella mushroom chicken and it tasted different... not as deep flavored as the other version but it was more zesty and spicy... kinda good but…

Shoney's review for 10.22.11
when we first got in it was kinda packed but not too bad the manager seated us and we wanted to sit away from other people and smells and he picked a good spot. We wanted to sit on the other side of the buffet but he told us the fishy smell was bad so he put us in the front part away from the “smelly fish” LOL. He was talking about how he hated the smell of fish LOL.
The waitress was very attentive at first and it did take a while to get my coffee that I ordered (regular) because they were still brewing.... my sister got a decaf and got it quick though.
Took her an average time to get to our orders and gave us plenty time to choose.
She checked on our coffee a lot at first and then she got more and more slow.
We waited a good bit for our food though... I ordered a steak and their new seafood bar and the seafood was ok... not the best though.... I had shrimp, shrip with fried rice, fake crab meat, and salmon. I also had clams but they weren't that grea…

VMware, Verizon partner on mobile virtualization; May give Android enterprise boost
This is something really awesome from vmware...


In a move that could bolster the bring your own device argument, Verizon and VMware said they will partner on mobile virtualization for Android devices.
Specifically, Verizon will use VMware’s Horizon Mobile technology for business customers. VMware Mobile Horizon will allow IT departments to provision manage and cut off mobile devices over air. In a nutshell, Verizon and VMware will segment devices for both professional and personal uses.
VMware Horizon Mobile will also access the applications in the Android Market. LG will be among the first handset makers to use the VMware-Verizon virtualization bundle. According to GigaOm, VMware, which also announced a pact with Telefonica, ultimately wants to write its virtualization code into Android.

The last time you were at bob evans?

The very last time I was at bob evans..... It was a very hectic day and a very traumatising one. I was going to go to the hospital becuase my baby niece was sick really badly at children's in columbus, and we were going to go see her, along the way we stopped in pickerington, oh for a bite to eat along the way.

We chose Bob Evans becuase we were familiar with the name and the place wasn't as crowded as the others becuase there was some biker event going on and all the eating places were crowded!

We entered and the place was very packed, but we were promptly seated and taken care of, however the food order took a very long time to come, waiting a long time for the food to come, we were kinda nervous about my niece, and then when it finally came It was time to indulge in my pork chop and mashed taters.

The Mashed potatoes were excellent and made me feel better, but the pork chops were another story, they tasted fine and the texture was ok, till I bit in the middle, it set off…

Was Steve Jobs assassinated?

That's what this un named source that is close to Steve says:

Please note! The views in this quote are not mine, therefore I shall not be responsible for anything that may arise from this. Please read at your own discretion and use safe judgement. I have simply posted this because it's intriguing the hell out of me and I found this on a tech forum I shall not name. Thank you. 

"Steve Jobs was assassinated
Steve Jobs' death was not an accident. The cures for many forms of cancer exist in the hands of the chosen few, yet at the same time cancer is used as a tool of assassination by those same people.

Steve Jobs was assassinated because he refused to comply with the direction given to him by the banker assholes that control nearly every country in the world.

Despite their attempts to kill him, Jobs managed to survive six years beyond their expectations thanks to his wealth and tenacity.

And as his health was failing due to the weaponized pancreatic cancer virus consumed …

Time for tech--->Do you STILL trust Microsoft to build antivirus support into Windows 8?

OK... Microsoft has announced that Windows 8 will have built in Anti-virus client.

This sounds really cool because you don't have to worry about messing with installing anti-virus anymore right.....

wrong! You still have to worry because Microsoft Security Essentials has declared Google chrome as a Trojan!

Earlier today, we learned that the Microsoft Security Essentials tool began falsely identifying Google Chrome as a piece of malware (”PWS:Win32/Zbot”) and removing it from people’s computers.
Lots of people are using Google Chrome. (I, however use and prefer Firefox though)

This is also a weird piece of news....


IE's market share has fallen the most in a long time.... Google's is increasing

They totally did this on purpose to get less people to use chrome by making it a trojan in MSE.

This is very pathetic of MS and something an angsty teen would do, not a professional software company.

Also what about people that want to use alternate media players like j-river …

Aqua-Megalomania expanded review

1. Playmate To Jesus4:48 (5* for sound and 4.5* for lyrics)-This is my fav song on here. Upbeat, happy, and deeper then most mainstream pop-dance music. puts me in an exploration-type mood with some of the space lyrics. I love the happy-dark vibe on this one!
2. Dirty LIttle Pop Song 3:51 (4.5* for sound and 3* for lyrics)-Feel good simple pop-song with uplift and great for crusin around town. This is great for city-night driving or going fast down the highway-motorway! I love the fast beat to this!
3. Kill Myself3:31 (5* for sound and 2* for lyrics)-Very pretty and airy sounding and I love the way this sounds.... but the lyrics involve a chick wanting to kill themselves for their lover! OMG!!!
4. Like A Robot3:39   (4* for sound and 3* for lyrics)-to most people the use or the F word is un-needed, however it gives Aqua a very new twist and it's there for the shock factor. I do love the beat though.

Focus company/org of the month--->COSi Columbus,OH

the only things I remember were the fetuses in the jars and there not being a lot of interactive stuff. I went in late 2003.

the old cosi was a lot more fun ;-( This one was whitewashed and too sterile feeling.


yes, FETUSES IN JARS.

and also at COSI in columbus,oh there's 8 jars with fetuses of various stages in a body exibit there!!! I was there in 2004 and this one woman that was pregnant and also had a baby in a stroller that was next to use started freaking out and crying... ;-( poor woman. we both thought it was very disturbing. she was scared shitless.
those fetuses are real to and have been in those jars for 20 yrs

Ponderosa Steakhouse review for 9.18.11

Ponderosa Steakhouse review for 9.18.11
I have not been to a Ponderosa in Years (since feb 2005--->Lebanon,TN)
I always liked Ponderosa. They were my fav place to go as a kid and a teen.
The one I went to in lebanon,TN was excellent.
I haven't been to one since then.
Now we finally got to go to the one in Ripley,WV (it's within a 1.5hr driving distance from my current location) I was eager to give them another try again,specially since a lot of locations are closing down. ;-(
we were greeted nicely and taken care of promptly. I ordered a sirloin steak and it was 10.99 incl. Buffet
My steak was meaty and good flavor and was cooked to my specifications. I barely needed any A1 sauce. It wasn't a premium fancy steak, however it was still good!
On the buffet I got Ham only, as I wanted to have more room for the steak, however the selections were actually pretty good, they had plenty of meats and main course items, more then Ryan's buffet actually had as far as main cours…

Creepy cover of Blue (da ba dee)!!!

New layout!!!

I am happy to present our new layout for the blog! Easier to read, crisper, and more features! We now have pages on the top to have easy access to firefox addons, my screenshots, etc!!!

Time for Tech--->Focus company of the month:RealNetworks

Ok I have two things to say about this company:

1)they have improved over the years since the G2 days (BUFFERING..... anyone?)

2)they have made the easiest flash video downloader ever. it is part of realplayer now

however a few points I will note:

they used to be extremely responsive on thier facebook page. I was impressed. I had an issue with something and they actually wanted to call me to help me

fix it! That was impressive!

then they got slacking with thier response time. they also got slower at rolling updates for the firefox addon. they were fast with getting Firefox 4.0 support, however they took a long time getting support out for Firefox 5.0 even though it is extremely easy to patch addons. I've done it with the addons that are featured on this blog. I almost had it working, however there were prolly some code bits I couldn't touch, due to them being locked down by realnetworks. I would have patched it within the hour Fx 5 came out!

Also the Firefox team allows anyo…

time for tech--->Amazon.com rebranding?

Image
Yes, Amazon.com is rebranding and re-vamping thier iconic white,blue,and orange website!



it was distinct and part of thier branding. now it does look like some dodgy site with that preview.

this is as drastic as the pepsi re-brand.

some woman though the pepsi with the new logo sitting on the shelf at wal-mart was knock off pepsi when I was there right after the re-brand LOL.

that's what happens if you change an iconic brand. it looses touch with the clients.

if a company changed thier logo the connection would be dropped. You'd have to re-market that logo and image all over again, wasting money that could have been spent on product development.

the GAP changed thier logo once and it flopped like mad

Gaelan Edwards snuck out of bed to watch TV and instead he got a new baby brother!

I find it interesting his name is Gaelan. Galen of Pergamon was a great Greek physician ~1800 years ago :)

I will quote this from the original article:

"Danielle Edwards, 30, said in a telephone interview that she woke about 2 a.m. to find herself in labor with the baby's head already beginning to crown. "I didn't go through any of the preliminary labor pains," she said. "None of it."

Unable to walk or reach the telephone, she rolled onto her back and noticed the TV on in the other room. Figuring it was her oldest son, she said, "Gaelan, I need you to come over here."

"It was like a springboard; he sat straight up, came and stood in the doorway area to my room. He put his hands on his hips and said, 'Mom, this is not …

They should just make the phones stronger to begin with! make all phone displays unbreakable. It can be done. It is being applied, just not mainstream. It should be mainstream. We shouldn't have to mess with hard to acquire expensive means of getting a toughphone. hrrrrmmmm I wonder of panasonic has one? It would be toughfone or something like it. As long as it has android OS it would be good, however the specs must be good in order to keep it long. that is one problem with this situation. 

Review for western sizzlin 08.09.11

Review for western sizzlin 08.09.11
This place is off the beaten path a ways but it was still easy to access from US50.
The parking seemed to be ok but a little packed in too much. Could have used wider parking spots.
The area you first walked into could be spaced a little better and had both cash registers spaced further apart so the two cashiers could work more efficiently and there would be faster movement. They seemed to be ok at getting us in but seemed a little off for some reason.
The décor was nice and the layout of the place was ok.
We seated ourselves and were taken care of promptly. Our meals came to us very quickly.
I ordered a sirloin with a baked potato. The sirloin did taste very watered down and it needed tons of A1 to make it edible. The baked potato was really good. I got sour cream and cheese from the baked potato bar.
My husband got a chopped steak and he was satisfied with it. He also got a baked potato and he like it too and made it like I did.

"The worlds best restaurant" closes it's doors

"The worlds best restaurant" closes it's doors......

El Bulli, owned by award-winning chef Ferran Adria, will mark the end of a remarkable 27-years with a special sitting for staff and their families

A Spanish restaurant repeatedly voted the best in the world has served its final dish to the public and is closing its doors for the last time

They are only open 6 months out of the year.

Apperantly they were not really turning a profit.

that would explain the not turning a profit thing...

businesses that are restrictive hours are the same as well.

several local businesses had to shut down in my area becuase nobody came to buy stuff... they were only open during regular business hours, a time where not very many working people can show up to buy stuff.

the places with expansive hours tend to do better since they can make more money from the evening traffic and rush after work. peak shopping times in my locale are from 2pm-10:30PM. Any time before that is dead. so therefore …

Time for Tech--->New white space standard: up to 22Mbps over 12,000 square miles

Taken from ARS:
The new IEEE 802.22 standard has been published and will finally allow manufacturers to start producing standardized devices that will use the white space vacated by analog TVs over two years ago. The standards will provide networking in areas over a 62 mile radius at speeds of up to 22Mbps.
In theory, that means as few as 307 devices could cover the entire United States. (In reality, it would likely take many more than that.)
With all the cloud OSes like ChromeOS and B2G (Mozilla) we are going to need something for devices that use those to flourish. I think the cloud OS thing may be a good idea. since no matter what device you use your files are always there. Specially good if you use several devices. Still would like to have offline modes though. However this is very awesome and I hope this gets launched! This is also cheaper for the ISPs as they don't have to worry about cables and outages would happen less often.

I am anxious for tech like this!

Youtube's new "Cosmic Panda" Layout is here. 


Ok here are the issues I have with the 'cosmic panda' layout on youtube:
This is the "cosmic panda" layout from youtube
First impressions:
the channel d0esn't allow you to play vids directly from it like the old layout.
this requires more steps to watch people's vids be referencing username.

also to view playlists requires more steps as well, and you cannot view those from the channel either
Playlists:


also I do not like the new playlist access method, you can not have it in a nice vertical list that displays more info about the videos on the side.
all it does is have a tiny side scrolling list that just has thumbnails and you have to hover over each one for the video info and it doesn't show as much info as the old layout.

I also don't think it utilizes widscreen layouts good enough for the main video pages. there is lots of empty space that could be used for more info or related

videos.  also…

RE: RIP: Borders Books This was one of the rare good hangout spots in my area.

Now that they are leaving there are very few good hangout spots in my area and there's nowhere else that sells manga! I would have to order online and wait 1 week or more to get it and I just wanna pick it up that same day! This is depressing.

However encouraging breastfeeding is great and it is a good idea to get more people to warm up to it.

here's an image of the toy:

Song Cover time!--->Believe (Cher Cover)

This is better then the original. It's nice to hear the un-autotuned version.Doesn't sound all gurggley like cher's voice did. LOL. They did a great job with this one. I had this on an old cover cd and I missed it so much and I just found it!   This was made by the Countdown Dance Masters from Madacy Entertainment. Glad they are still around! 
This song is a huge part of me and it feels wierd to share it, I hope you like it.

Time for Tech--->Microsoft gets into social networking?

Try this one out for size..... TulaLip.....

That was hard to say... Tu-la-lip..... much like a tulip.

However many people allready juggle a facebook, twitter, google plus, reddit, digg, deviantart, blogspot, wordpress, several forums, and more social sites. Do we really have room for another?

and with a name like that it's easy for people to think "tulip" and type that into google and get results for the flower instead.

Not a very good idea.

also easy to mis-spell and people could end up on a malware infested site or something that can't be unseen.....

Your thoughts please...

Song of the 2nd quarter--->ATB-Running A Wrong Way (with Rea Garvey)

This is the most moving song I've listened to in a Very long time. ATB Never lets me down he is my fav trance DJ and I love him and his music. You must give his other tracks a chance as well.

Time for Tech--->Google Maps for Android Labs Offers Offline Caching

Google Maps for Android Labs Offers Offline Caching

They are gonna need a more offline version due to all the extreme capping the cell phone providers are doing.(many are only having it at 2GB and for navving that would be blown quickly) it would be nice to have a whole region on your smartphone. You can just download the maps with wifi at home for free and then take it on your trip without needing to be raped on data charges for a 1,000 mile trip. I know that with some prepaid plans some people have had to pay 8 bucks worth of data charges for a 20 mile trip and that all adds up eventually you're paying upwards of 40-50/mo just to navigate. for those people who can't get regular contract data this would be a godsend.

all the data not wasted for just navving can be used for web browsing and many would be very happy about this.

and phone can definitly hold the data... on regular GPS units they have around 4GB of int. mem. and the map usage was around 1.8-3GB for the whole US an…

Noise Prompts Pennsylvania Restaurant to Ban Kids Under 6

A restaurant in western Pennsylvania says it's no longer allowing children under age 6


The thing is all it does is alienate their potential customers... lots of people have kids and you can't avoid it. Why sacrifice your business at that expense? I can understand if the place was upper scale and required reservations and served a full bar of alcohol...
but a regular golf course restaurant isn't that big of a deal.

I've heard also of terrible things Buffets inc did to a breastfeeding mother by kicking her out of old country buffet! baby's gotta eat too. most BF moms are discreet and nice about it and then some perv that shouldn't be looking at a BF mom for long enough to be annoyed complains and starts ****. . and most places are big enough for if people don't like what they see they can move to another table..

and people want the BF moms to go to the bathroom instead.... but there's so many germs and bad things th…

Movie Quickies--->Tron legacy

just watched tron legacy.... it was pretty good. the music wasn't as happenin as I thought it was. Daft Punk was in it and you couldn't even tell. They shouldda had some edgy fierce beats in there!!! that would have completed the movie a lot more!!!! The acting was a little off but it was decent...visually it was AWESOME!!!  7/10

Full review coming soon! With screenshots!

Capcom's Resident Evil DRM Is Evil: You Get To Play The Game Once

Capcom's Resident Evil DRM Is Evil: You Get To Play The Game Once



Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D for the nintendo 3ds
Yes you can only play the game once. No alternate save files allowed. No starting from scratch.

If you want to play it again.... cough up another 40 bucks.

your friend wants to play? cough up the 40 bucks

your husband/wife wants to play? cought up the 40 bucks

wanna sell the game? too bad you can't!


this is just wrong I though Ubisoft's DRM was bad this really takes the cake!

I think people need to boycott this game company. Seriously. And don't even pirate thier games. That'll send the message. That the game isn't even worth torrenting, let alone buying! "it must be bad!"

Gamestop and other retailers are allready warning customers about this! That says something!

When a game retailer company doesn't even want to sell it or is warning customers about your games you need to quit.

here's the nitty gritties on it

The most evil companies

Buffets Inc, I've mentioned them several times in my blog. They are evil for shutting down some great locations and laying off more then 400 excellent employees at the worst time ever.

AT&T for thier crap against ISP innovation, they are the ones who started the bandwidth caps, they have crappy cell service in both network and support, they are anti-net-neutrality, etc....

Adobe for making flash so bloated and insecure, thier software is very expensive, flash plugin is very unstable and causes lots of headaches, thier server backend software is problematic, and thier support for paying customers suck.

Ubisoft is the bad game dev with thier crap DRM where you had to be connected to thier servers constantly in order to just play a single player game! Many titles suffered from this.

Comcast for being a crappy cable company with caps and all kinds of mess.

Amazon for thier cloud hosting service failures taking out sites like minecraft, reddit and foursquare (sites I use) and n…

Time for tech--->Redhat vs Ubunu--->ubuntu's problem

Redhat (as a company) is stable, professional and secure. They are right in line with thier target market. Synced well.


Canonical/Ubuntu is unstable, immature, and insecure, they have no clue what thier target market is. Not in sync with thier userbase.

ubuntu keep going after markets where it's unstable, specially for a free product. Linux is seen as a power user's OS.... It is no way being seen as an OS for gramma to get on FB and play farmville with her sewing buddies. That market is slim pickings.


They are pulling a nintendo.... neglecting thier core users to go after new things.... the grass isn't greener on the other side. it may be an 'emerging market', however even that is stagnating. those grammas will want more from thier setup once they learn more....

Canonical/Ubuntu's image is also arrogant and they feel like thier on this "grand mission" to "humanize" linux.... but it gets to thier heads and anyone that challenges it…
