Artie Lange & Howard Stern

I've been a listener of the Howard Stern Show for more than 8 years and of course loved the fact that when he moved to SIRIUS, it was going to mean no censorship. I read about the Artie Lange vs. Teddy incident yesterday while I was working and was looking forward to hearing it while driving home (since the show is rotated daily on SIRIUS' Howard 100.) It was a shame that Howard decided not to replay this yesterday and I am sure we'll hear why and how the decision was made 10 days from now when they return from vacation. Thank god for YouTube!

I sure wish I was in the 'Dam w/ Artie this weekend.

This link is the first of 3 segments you can find on YouTube.

This Guy Gets Sonos

Sonos is a tough product to visualize and explain on TV. This is the best demonstration I have seen to date - he gets it!! Mike A's show is Get Connected (TV & Radio.)

The Fam Bumps Into Shaq

Mom, dad, Denise and the little sis bumped into a couple of recognizable folks at the "Fight Night" fundraiser in Phoenix Friday night.

The photo of Shaq has a back story. Mom has always been a Shaq stalker/fan. She finally had the chance to meet him two weeks ago, got her picture taken, but never received the picture.

Twins Turn 3 - Hard Drive Failure Loses Memories

Carter & Cam turned three this past weekend. Unfortunately, as I was uploading photos of the big day (red train, plenty of cake, plenty of friends) to the laptop, the hard drive crashed (it crashed as soon as they were completed uploading and deleted from the camera). We put out the request for photos, but it turns out when other folks are at a birthday party taking pictures, they are taking them of their children (not ours).

C&C have come along way from March 29, 2005. The first 87 days of their lives were spent growing stronger and learning to breathe in a NICU. The picture on the left is of Cam's let hand at 3 days old (if I recall correctly).

Thanks to Dasha for sending the 6 pictures of historical record of the big day. And thanks to Rob for spending hours upon hours trying to recover the data on the drive. $50 and 6 hours later, it was a lost cause.

Yet another reminder to never trust a computer when handling your data. Don't trust that the data is safe until it is on a networked attached storage that is also backing up on an hourly basis. Maxtor / Seagate is my preferred NAS.

Now the boys big #3 is but a distant memory, with 5-6 pictures to remember the moment. We'll be better prepared come Keller's 5th.
