I decided I didn't want to loose all my phone data so I started looking online for something. I found this: Oasys Mobile Locker.
They also have an app that lets you back up your phone book. Sounds good to me - and its free.
Thinking about this one:
I know its almost exactly what I had and even though I had been thinking about a smaller car, that wreck made me glad I was in a truck.
Sunday, June 18, 2006
A car t-boned me hitting the back right wheel. It knocked the truck over on its side and pushed it into the bumper of a jeep that was stopped at the light. I wasn' wearing a seat belt (old truck) so when the truck rolled on its side I fell down into the passenger seat. That turned out to be a good thing.
I had a half empty coke in the drink holder. When I went sideways the coke spilled on me. I wasn't thinking too clearly at the time and when the truck stopped I thought the coke was gasoline. I had the window open so I bolted out of the truck, jumped on the hood of the jeep and was to the side walk before anyone knew what was going on.
The firemen and cops came. The fire trucks got there first. When the firetruck stopped the firemen took off running to my truck. When they didn't see anyone there they looked around and I raised my hand.
A big guy came over and asked me if i was the driver. I said yes.
After the first impact I hit the rear view mirror before I fell into the passenger seat. I had a red mark in the center of my forehead from that. The firemen reached his finger out and pressed down on the mark. He asked me what day it was. He said he had never seen someone walk away from a crash like that.
The wrecker got there about the same time as the cop. I had to talk to the cop for a long time. The car that hit me didn't stop.
I was close enought to Charlie's place to walk there afterwards. I didn't sleep much. This morning my friend Max came over and took me down to the wreck lot to get my paper work for the insurance. I took this picture.
So Max brought me back to my place and the front door was open. I am freaked out. Charlie gets off work at 8 and she is going to pick me up and we are going to stay at her place tonight.

This came right up: Project Serpo
"My name is Richard Doty, retired special agent, Air Force Office of Special Investigation (AFOSI), and now a private citizen living in New Mexico.
During a briefing in 1984 I read a document which mentioned an exchange program between an alien race and twelve U.S. military personnel. The briefing did not mention any specific details of the exchange program, but it did refer to the program lasting from 1965 to 1978.
In 1965, twelve U.S. military men were placed on an extraterrestrial spacecraft and flew to an alien planet some 40 light years away. The exchange program lasted until 1978 when the team returned. Some of the twelve died on the alien planet and by 1991, when I was given this information, some had died since. The final briefing of the returnees is still classified. Note: all the team members are now dead, the last surviving until 2002."
"Maybe the Serpo references were redacted by Lady Bird herself. Maybe. But why would the former First Lady take out references to a space mission when she did not take out a piece of incredible evidence inculpating her husband and former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover in a conspiracy to conceal information of a murder conspiracy, specifically the JFK assassination, from the very commission LBJ assembled to investigate the crime?"
"The first compelling reason to believe this story is the accidental testimony of the retired Air Force colonel with 33 years in Intelligence. When he read the Serpo account in hard copy, he was visibly shocked and confirmed "Yes, [it's] all real."
The point here is that if this story is 90 percent true-or even 10 percent true!-it's still the story of the last millennium. Some people cannot believe that twelve American astronauts could have made a trip to another planet nearly 40 light years away in 1965. It's just too much of a leap to believe."

First Video (Updated)
I took Charlie to Apres Diem and then we saw X Men 3. Probably could have picked a better date movie.
Here is me messing with the camera before we went to dinner.
So anyway, I read the letter a couple of times and it seems to be about when we were out in
The letter is from a woman. She wants my father to contact her daughter and give her the message, “I’m sorry. I always loved you.” Since I need a story to do my project I figured I would call the woman and go give her the message and tape it! I put in a call to her this morning and left a message. Get her to tell me the story, its going to be great.
Idea for project
I have to go to class right now but more soon.

New Project (Start here!)
Wii Instant Messaging
"It looks like the Nintendo Wii will feature some sort of instant messaging system - according to a patent filed by Nintendo.
The patent detail explains that Nintendo are working (or thinking of working on) a "Messaging service for videogame systems with buddy list that displays game being played. Each game system is configured to connect to the web server computer via the Internet and to communicate status data indicative of an activity engaged in by a user thereof. The web server computer generates a session file indicative of user status and the status of each of two or more persons on a buddy list of the user."
In addition, the patent mentions the ability to build a gamer profile (containing personal details, high scores, favourite game lists etc) and an avatar, which can be built by selecting a set of pre-designed features such as facial hair, eyes, noses etc - or by uploading a picture of your fine self. The system can also be used by "portable consoles" - read "DS" - and the ability to block players and chat by microphone and keyboard will also be in place."
US Hardware sales: xBox PSP GameCube
"The hardware sales for US consoles has been released, here's how it broke down, in terms of total unit sales and difference (in percentage) from April:
- PlayStation 2: 232,000 ( 12.1%)
- Sony PSP: 159,659 ( 17.1%)
- Nintendo DS: 145,930 ( 5.4%)
- Xbox 360: 221,000 ( 25%)
- GameCube: 33,000 ( 13.2%)
- Xbox One: 26,000 ( 33.3%)"
Playstation 3 vs xBox 360
"It’s been a little over a year since Sony first announced its upcoming PlayStation 3 console. In that time, plenty of hype (not to mention barbs) have flown between the Microsoft and Sony camps, each attempting to tout their machine as the “better” offering. After all, who can forget when Sony’s Phil Harrison took the stage at the European Game Developer’s Conference in the fall of 2005 and talked critically about Microsoft’s plan to release two retail versions of the Xbox 360?"
