Want to know what the best part of your business coming to a screeching halt is? LOOTING. I had a very successful business for 6 years that I recently stopped. It was good money, but was a lot of stress and not particularly rewarding. I had several state of the art computers at the office, so I looted them today. Now I have three monitors instead of one, and a sweet ass water machine.
Also, I went to
Home Depot Jacob the Jeweler and got some sick bling today. Composed mostly entirely out of stainless steel fine platinum, it weighs in at 6 pounds. Besides being horribly uncomfortable around the neck, it punches me in the stomach with the lock as I walk. I consider the purchase an overwhelming success. One of my good friends is throwing a party tomorrow night, and I plan on rocking the chain.
Coming tomorrow... what it's like when people think you're a celebrity... (really)
If you don't mind me asking, why did it come to a screeching halt? Did something change on the online gambling scene?
Hi there Tynan,
Great fashion sense!
Austin is a nicce place. Im writing because I thought Id take the opportunity to ask what it is like living there.
Are you a graphic artist, or painter?
im an artistic odd-job, and considering going into property development and thinking about moving to Austin primarily as an interior designer.
Would be nice to chat with you about it.
If you're wondering why I always put my name in the topics of these things, it's not because I have a huge ego. I do have a huge ego, but I do it so that my name gets better search rankings in google. My goal is for people to be able to search for "Tynan" and for my site to be number one. Soon. If you want to help, like the almighty Magnus, you can link to my blog and put my name in the link.
Today Doug, Steve, Steve's (ex?) girlfriend, Todd and I headed down to Canyon Lake, TX to do some tubing. You see, I bought the sweetest tube ever to bring to the lake. The thing actually flies 15 feet in the air behind the boat. I think I wrote about it before, but I'm not sure. Anyway, the first time we tried I skipped along the water, but didn't really take flight because my weak human lungs couldn't inflate the tube enough.
Today before going to the lake I bought two different pumps to ensure that the thing would actually inflate. As it turned out, the boat rental place had a sweet air compressor, negating the need for our own pumps. Oh well... you owe me one (two?), Wal Mart. Our rental boat was a shoddy looking boat most certainly manufactured before 1990 which was apparently very fast. The interior was a coccoon of brightly colored vinyl couches covered by a weathered bimini top. I climbed aboard and with the help of Todd, tied the monsterous tube to the boat.
Just as the article says:
A rough, unpolished version of the site is on the brink of going live. There is (was?? Fingers crossed!), one bug that kept cropping up: There was an error coming up when trying to edit the priority queue once the draft had started. As you can imagine, this is a bit of a deal-breaker.
Anyway, we think we have fixed it now. We'll do another round of testing tomorrow (or today rather, it's past midnight here Down-under) and if the Footballing Gods are in a happy mood, have a beta site up and running tomorrow. Hoping to disappoint plenty of wives and girlfriends this weekend...
