Healthier Life

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

My wife and I discovered that many products that we use everyday or that claim to be safe are really dangerous. Everyday, people are taking supplements that may be hazardous to their health, all the time thinking that they are doing something to lead a healthier lifestyle.

Some supplements are synthetic, use dyes, preservatives or use other unnatural ingredients that some research has shown to be harmful in some cases. The research that I’m referring to is a study done by UC Berkeley. The following link is a published article in a reputable peer review.

The following couple sites have easy to view tables to show exactly what I’m talking about.

In the spirit of the New Year, and the desire to help people meet the possible resolution of leading healthier lives, my wife and I set out to inform people of the benefits of using all natural products. If you or someone you know might be interested  the please check out our site.

New certification! CCENT!

Wednesday, September 24th, 2008

Today I passed the Cisco exam 640-822! Due to the NDA, I can’t really say anything about the exam. I can say that I studied for a couple months. I used the Sybex CCENT book, Cisco Press and hands labs with 3 2600 series routers, 1 1710 router and a 3500 series switch.

I should point out that I did have a 4 semester Cisco class in high school, but that was 8 years ago. It is amazing how much I remember from those classes. I know it helped me.

Fantastic Contraption – Addicting Game

Thursday, August 28th, 2008

So, lately I’ve been studying for my Cisco ICND 1 exam, which I will be taking next month. I’ve been lucky enough to be able to borrow some equipment to set up practice labs. So I have been busy reading, and setting up labs. I’ve been doing Microsoft exams for so long, so the change of material is nice right now. Anyway, in my spare time, I’ve been camping, spending time with my family and playing games here and there. Mario Kart Wii, is fun, and recently on the Virtual Console we downloaded Ys… It’s rather additive. However I thought I would share another fun addicting game that I ran across.

Fantastic Contraption 

I’ll share a few of my design, though they pale in comparrison to some of the design I’ve seen online.

The new blackberry doesn’t like the old office!

Friday, May 30th, 2008

We just got the Blackberry curves at work yesterday. Today, I was helping a co-worker set up the Blackberry Desktop Manager to sync up their phone with their Outlook 2000 calendar. Well, the option for Outlook was not listed when I was attempting to set it up. I figured that it had to be the version of outlook. I use Outlook 2003 on my PC at work, but many co-workers are still using Outlook 2000. After a quick search online I found this on blackberryfaq.com. It’s not really a big deal, but that was really my only problem of the day. The rest of the day I was continuing to set up new computers.
