This is an old Vinnie ad from the 80's. No reason I posted it.

Not feeling well today. Should go get checked out. Very cold outside though.

I've decided to join a local gym and get in shape this year. Perhaps the jolt of exercise Monday has made my body angry with me. I spent an hour there Monday, half on the bike, half on the treadmill. Don't think it was much of a workout, no sore muscles today. I 'rode' 4 miles and 'walked' about 1 mile. Perhaps tomorrow I'll kick it up a notch.

The new house is still not done. Work on the tile flooring is almost complete and the fireplace looks to be all done. Looks good so far. I'm hoping it's done by the end of February, living where I'm living is getting to me.


open source notation software for drummers

I have probably spent hours on this search term. Using google, sourceforge, freshmeat, etc. The reality is that there isn't a good piece of software out there (for windows anyway). I've tried numerous examples of software and none of them do this simple thing: provide a platform where I can transcribe or create drum patterns using hi-hat, snare, toms, etc. Finale Notepad sucks ass. And forget the text editor software packages, if I wanted to type out notes in a code-like format, I might as well write it down manually then trying to learn text based editing. And I don't want to have to download this pkg, and this pkg and compile this pkg, then this pkg. wtf? Isn't anyone taking advantage of any tablet type software? At this point I'm stuck to writing out things manually. I've checked for what it seems like 1-2 yrs and everything sucks.



I'll be trying out some new GabCast technology soon, let's you post blogs via telephone. Hopefully I can talk faster than you can read...

In other news, the new house is almost complete (thank god). And I can 't wait.
