New Years is coming up, and that means the HoustonSeasonalFireworks Sales Window is now open. You have until Jan 1st to stock up on everything you will need to impress your friends and then annoy your neighbors during the off season. If you want the best prices in town, visit the HoustonCheapFireworks.com
. They have the best prices period. Don't get drawn in by those other guys who markup everything, and then do those discounts giving you the illusion you are getting a deal. Just visit the Super Warehouse on East I-10 just outside of the beltway.
They have 6 flat screen TVs running HD video demos of those more expensive items like 500 gram Aerial Cakes, and Artillery Shells. Got to like that, no more buying some expensive cake only to find out it wasn't worth the money. Now you can see what it does before you buy it.

Today I replaced the toilet in my master bath. After sitting a little too long on the can, my right leg fell asleep. I thought I would stand up and walk it off, but I was wrong. I lost my balance fell backwards shattering my Toilet Tank, causing a nice 3 gallon flood. So the next day I bought a new toilet and installed it myself. One of the easiest projects I have ever done. I have included photos of the before and afters.

I have had the opportunity to work with one of my clients in just about every aspect of their business. As a result I get to see into the mind of today's modern employers. What I have found is our country does not have an unemployment problem. We have a population of unemployable people. Here I express my deep thoughts on why people aren't getting the jobs, they apply for, and why they are being let go from the jobs they used to have.

Recently I was reading the Economist, and they had an article that talked about what Obama and Romney really want to do with regards to taxes and revenues. This was the first time I had ever seen both candidates proposals laid out side by side.

Since pulling the plug on all my comcast (Xfinity) services except for internet, my bill has dropped to $62.95 / month. However considering I use my computer for work, and I am constantly shuttling large files between my work station and my colocated server, I felt that maybe getting one of the faster Internet connections might be a good idea. So I have upgraded from my Basic Xfinity service that gave me 25 Mbit downstream, and 4 Mbit upstream, to the Blast 105 Service that gives me 105 Mbit downstream and 20 Mbit upstream. Follow me as I blog this experience in detail. We will see if the Extreme 105 from comcast is worth the additional cost and installation fees.

If you read my previous blog post, you know that I was having a little trouble with my Samsung 2493HM Syncmaster LCD monitor. I actually have 2 of them on my work station. I finally gave up on trying to repair it after the repair failed twice. I have upgraded to Dell 24" LED monitors. LED monitors cost a bit more than their LCD counterparts, but the cost savings in energy are worth it. I break out the kill-a-watt meter and put my old monitors against my new ones.

As some of you know I have invested into some serious desktop real estate. I have 3 Samsung Syncmaster LCD Displays. One is a 30" and the other 2 are 24". Everything has been working great for years. Then one of my displays ( Samsung Syncmaster 2493HM ), starting to randomly go out. Then it would make some weird clicking sounds. After a while it would make a loud pop and come back on. Occasionally it would also flicker before going out. Over time it got worse. After some researching, I figured out the problem, and was able to repair it myself for about $20 in Parts.
