Needing some TLC

After a review of my site after neglecting it for far too long I have decided to take matters into my own hands and do some serious cleanup and maintenance of the site. You may see some things move, be removed or changed completely. I need to upgrade some tool-kits and remove some unused code and tool-kits. To make a long story short, things will be changing around here soon and once things are clean and neat I can work on the 1,295 draft blog posts I have started and left to collect dust.

Layover in Germany

Beer in Germany

Beer in Germany

So my first international flight was a long one. Flew from Charlotte, NC to Frankfurt Germany this morning, or last night, or whatever you want to call it. I had a three plus hour layover before my next flight to India so I did some wandering and checked things out.

The McDonald’s menu is much different than in America. I see croissants and other breads, but no biscuits. Chicken on the breakfast menu as well. And McCafe is a separate establishment!

T-Mobile provides free 30 minutes worth of WiFi which I am using now to write this, which I haven’t seen in the states. You’re lucky to find free “good” WiFi anywhere in the states.

I couldn’t stop in Germany without having some beer, so I am the big American sitting at the restaurant drinking pilsner at 9:15am… It is 1:15am my time in the States but they don’t care. I still feel silly, but the beer tastes good.

I leave at 11am to Chennai India which is another 9 hours flight. I plan to have another beer before my free WiFi runs dry and try to get some sleep on my flight.

I am traveling alone so instead of being able to talk to others about my thoughts I am talking to you instead! =) Don’t be surprised if I post more in the next two weeks than I have since the site began.

So long Germany, until the next time!

Does My Vote Even Matter?

You don’t know how many times I’ve heard this from friends, family or co-workers the last few months. I don’t blame them, in this nation of so many, how can a singular vote make the difference? Let me tell you why I think every vote is important and how you can justify making a choice even if you are in the same boat as myself and aren’t impressed with either candidate.

First, let me clear up a few things. I am not a democrat, nor am I a republican, I am actually registered as an independent. Which with conservative parents and grandparents, a mixture of both sides with my co-workers and friends and there are always those that are extreme one way or the other it has always been interesting for me to hear both sides of the story before making a decision. I attribute this somewhat to my parents being divorced when I was young. Having your parents giving you conflicting opinions and guidance through adolescence tends to foster independent thinking. I digress.

What a slacker!

Posted by: Chace in Categories: Rants, Thoughts, Update.

I can’t believe I haven’t made a new blog post in close to a year. Albeit I’ve been busy, that is no excuse!

I’ve been to four concerts, a fishing trip, moved my grandmother along with several other things that have kept me away from my computer. I must say, I’ve had a great time doing it too! Something about being on a computer all day for my “real” job really softens my desire to get back on when I get home. =)

I do have some half baked posts on some interesting topics I will be making it a point of finishing soon during the summer.

I hope everyone is doing fantastic and look for some fun things coming soon.

30k visits!

Posted by: Chace in Categories: Random, Thoughts.

We’re awful close to having 30,000 site visits! I say we because I couldn’t have gotten there without all you. I had the idea that I could have a prize for the 30,000th visitor if they sent me a screen shot of the visit count. I don’t think I’ll do that this time around since it’s only 60 hits away from that as I type. Read the entire post…
