Drop Box February 23, 2009

Filed under: Computer — 4:00 pm

This is my newest favorite computer gadget.

https://www.getdropbox.com/screencast#screencast

It is so cool.  I can access any of my files from my home computers virtually on any computer with an internet connection.  Also, all of my files are autmotically synced between my home computers.  Meaning, if I write a report for school on my laptop, I can access the file on my desktop and the changes will automatically be made to the laptop file.  This may get cofussing, so getdropbox.com gives you ability to view previous versions of the same file.  Best of all, this little ditty is free.  Yes, free up to 2GB.  This has been a lifesaver several times already when I needed to print something from home, but I didn’t have my laptop at school.  Another time, I needed to update a computer project, so I changed the file from a school computer and printed it.

Our Christmas Present February 3, 2009

Filed under: Family,Food,Holiday,House,Household — 7:00 am

For Christmas we got a Traeger grill!!  It is a pellet grill that:  Smokes, Barbecues, Grills, and Bakes.  My parents have had one for years and love it.  We got a Junior size so it will fit on our small porch.

Here are the pellets.  The cool thing is, you can buy different types of pellets to go in your grill to give your food a slightly different taste.

The Traeger dealer here in Tulsa (Hanlon’s Fireplace and Patio), has Traeger grills in the shape of a giant pink pig and a black charing bull.  They are hilarous!
