Friends Only? Not exactly… [Aug. 8th, 2026|01:27 am]
About 25% of the entries I make are friends only. This is done because I’ve found making everything public can have negative side effects (and holy crap they can be bad). If for some reason you find this journal interesting just make a post here stating who you are and say that you want to be added. Unless I suspect you of being someone I hate, your chances of being added are pretty high.

New Apps [May. 23rd, 2008|03:18 am]
I've been rather bad at updating this journal lately, however, recently I've written some new web apps, if you bored you can check them out: Text Color Fader, Gradient Image Generator, and Javascript Snake Game.

I'm actually sort of puzzled at how to promote them. I don't want to spam people and I don't want to use paid advertising, and outside of that, I'm not really sure at how one goes about promoting something like this. Anyway, if you think they're interesting, feel free to pass them or post a link.

O.A.R. Concert [Aug. 18th, 2007|01:31 am]
[mood |contentcontent]

I saw OAR in concert tonight, they were pretty good and the out door summer setting was great. The one thing that really shocked me though, was how packed Merriweather was. There were drunken college students everywhere. The place was a sea of people!

One of the girls that was with us said she had all their albums, and was shocked I only knew one song by them. I figured I'd just missed their other hits somehow - which seemed weird, because I usually know my rock music pretty well. However, everyone in the crowd was singing along, and there were so many people there, I figured they must have had at least a half dozen modern rock hits.

Though when I got home and checked wikipedia my original instincts turned out to be correct - they only have one hit, "Love and Memories". They definitely have a lot of die hard fans though.

[mood |creativecreative]

I've eatten at Chipotle 6 times in the past 8 days, I think I'm approaching some kind of record. Anyway, over the past few weeks I've slowly been developing a new online app. It allows you to create Text Ascii Art. You can see some examples below.

Right now it's still being developed (I'm working on a preview page so you don't have to flip through all of the fonts). If you notice any errors please let me know! More news about this is on my main site: http://patorjk.com/blog.

Updates... [May. 5th, 2007|01:11 pm]
Stuff that’s been happening:

- Drove 300+ miles across 3 states to see my brother and his daughters. ‘Twas a great trip, however, some stupid as cop gave me a speeding ticket in the middle of the freakin’ desert (100 miles away from any town).
- Saw Lily Allen in concert with a couple of friends. It was a great show.
- I hurt my back doing deadlifts. I probably won’t be able to go back to the gym for a few weeks.
- Saw downtown Annapolis – holy crap that place is nice!
- Brewfest was sold out this year :(, so we had settle for drinking down in the Inner Harbor (which wasn’t so bad).

Max Bench = 205 lbs [Mar. 24th, 2007|01:42 am]
[mood |tiredtired]

Mid work out today I decided to see if I could bench over 200 lbs. I easily cleared 205. I thought about trying 210, but I was already pretty tired so I felt like it could wait for another day.

Road Trippin' [Feb. 23rd, 2007|03:34 pm]
They gave us the afternoon off! And I get tomorrow off! However, I have to go back to work on Sunday ::tear::. What to do with this free time...

Well, because I'm completely crazy, I've decided to drive the 300 miles to my home town of Las Cruces, NM. I'll be leaving in like 10 minutes. Wish me luck!

(side note: I have a lot of relatives in the area, wont they be surprised when I show up...)
