Robert Schimmel – RIP my favorite comedian

Posted in Uncategorized by rip747 on December 30, 2010

I seriously feel like a total fucking ass. Just find out that Robert Schimmel passed away on Sept 3rd. Where the fuck was I and why didn’t this get more coverage. He was pure comic genius, hands down, and on the top of my list of personal heroes. Anyone who can survive and conquer what he did and still have a sense of humor demands respect and I respected him tremendously.

I was just thinking of things I would LOVE to do in 2011 and seeing him again in concert was at the top of my list.

RIP my favorite comedian.



Happy Halloween!!!!!!

Posted in Uncategorized by rip747 on October 31, 2010

Remember that the Walking Dead premieres on AMC tonight. We’re finally going to have a zombie mini series! I’m so hoping that it runs over christmas.

Also Ghost Hunters is doing their annual live show. Sadly i learned that the Ghost Adventures crew isn’t doing a live show this year 😦

Whatever you’re doing… enjoy the day!!!! Have fun, get scaried, get candy and if anyone went to Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights this year; please leave links to your blog with some pictures. I didn’t get a chance to go this year because of work, but last year was amazing and would LOVE to see what they did for this one.

And now a blast from the past!

Switching themes

Posted in Blogroll, Uncategorized by rip747 on May 19, 2010

I couldn’t stand the way this blog was looking any longer. It especially bothered me when I was trying to post code since the Simpla theme was very narrow and caused the code to wrap horribly. That said, I switched over to the Journalist theme since it’s wider and the code blocks stand out more. If you have a better suggestion on a theme to use, please tell me in the comments.

Twitter doesn’t recognize your username from your phone

Posted in Uncategorized by rip747 on January 9, 2010

I know I’ve said in the past that I would never start tweeting, but I broke down and signed up. After using it for a bit, I must admit that it’s a pretty good way to keep up with people and post short things that wouldn’t normally constitute a blog post.

Anyway, when trying to get twitter to work with my phone, I had the common problem of it not recognizing my username when I replied. The trick is to NOT reply to the message that twitter sent you asking for your username and instead send an entirely NEW message to 40404 with just your username as the message. Repeat this when replying with your password and “OK” to activate twitter on your phone.

Again: DO NOT reply to any of the messages that twitter sends you when setting up your phone to work with twitter. Instead send an entirely NEW message each time to 40404 with the requested information.

Garmin nuvi 780 help!

Posted in Uncategorized by rip747 on November 14, 2009

I own a garmin nuvi 780 which i use for geocachng mostly. one of the things that bothers me about it though is that you can’t add notes or comments to favorites. it would make geocaching a lot better since you could add hints as to where to find the cache. is there anyone out there that know how to add a comment or a description to a favorite on the garmin nuvi 780?

New contact page and a note about commenting

Posted in Uncategorized by rip747 on October 7, 2009

Ever since I started this blog I’ve received a ton of correspondence from people asking me to help them out with whatever problem they might have. However since I did a post containing the support information for MajicJack, a lot people are leaving comments to that post containing their personal information for me to get in touch with them.

Please everyone, I beg of you, DO NOT leave any personal information in comments on my blog or any blog for that matter. There are a lot of nutcases and scammers out there and I don’t want anyone inadvertently putting themselves in a dangerous situation.

I think the main reason people did this was I didn’t have any way on this blog for you to send me a personal message. Well starting today I learned (I’m always learning) that you can have a contact form through WordPress. With that I created a Contact Me page that you can use to get in touch with me for whatever reason.

Get in Contact with me!

Today’s quote comes directly from my brother:

Today I became a man… a manly man. Clogged the toilet using no toilet paper. Thats how big my shit was. Bow to me fucker.

Needless to say, he needs help.
