       There are many different symbols that could represent our current culture. One of the most important symbols would be the logo for Apple Inc. Both the original multi-color logo, along with the newer solid color logo are both very recognizable by almost anyone living this time period.
      The original muli-colored logo has been a symbol that represents computing in general. When people see something adorning the older Apple logo, they automatically know that whatever is adorning this logo is directly related to computers. Computers have also really been a very large defining motivator in our culture. Thus the Apple logo which symbolizes such a large motivator in our culture also will be a major symbol of our culture.
        The other is the solid color Apple logo. This is the logo that is used on the iPod, iPhone, and every other modern apple product. The iPod is one of the most used electronic devices used in our culture today, and with the iPhone destined to a similar fate. When people see this logo, almost anyone will automatically relate it to the iPod, or one of the other newer Apple products. With the social status that comes with the iPod, and the popularity of the entire series the iPod and subsequently solid color Apple logo deserve one of the top Symbols of the current culture.
      I believe that by these logos our culture will be remembered. The iPod, iPhone, and other iGadgets to come will all be remembered through these logos. And through these logos the major evolution of the computer industry, will be symbolized.

Well I've been using my PC a little bit more recently. I got somewhat annoyed at the choices for the Windows Scheme and just how it all looks, so I decided to get Gnome. I found 'SmoothGnome' to do most of the the transformation, then I found a program called 'Super Turbo Tango Patcher'. It looks pretty sweet, makes me want to keep my PC...

I got 'SmoothGnome' at:

Yeah a few of us played tennis DodgeBall. It was pretty much amazing. We tried to regular tennis afterwards. I think we officially decided that after every time you hit the ball you have to say either 'OOPS!', 'Sorry!', or 'OH Crap!'. The end.

In my recent adventures in creating my new file server, I found that many of my spare hard drives were bad. I decided that considering that I had never taken one apart, that I should. I've always seen the picture on the side of the hard drive boxes in stores, but never in real life. Let me just say that it is much more impressive looking in real life.


Tonight was the first ever Saturday Frag Night. It was pretty good despite the low amount of gamers playing, and Skype troubles. We played Unreal Tournament 2004 Demo, and it was a blast. We are planning to play Unreal Tournament GOTY next Saturday night. If you would like to join us please contact me!
