    Waiting to board the USS Austin

    I deployed to Iraq in Novemeber 2005 to May 2006 as part of the 22nd MEU (Marine Expeditionary Unit) in support of OIF (Operation Iraqi Freedom).  The MEU is a self sustainable unit consisting of air and ground assets, a support group, and of course ...
    Anon_thumb Fascinating and well written. All I can say is that I want to hear more.
    Anon_thumb This is an amazing page. Very well put together. I love the music!! Thank you for your service and for sharing your experience with us!
    This page is so awesome. I am so proud of you, Jason. As your little sister I always joke that you are a tough act to follow---sometimes I feel like those dancing monkeys that had to follow the Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show. But truly, I could not be prouder of you and I hope that everyone who views this page will feel the same way and remember to thank a troop.

    My sister did the sweetest thing and had Randall sign a jersey and send it to me for my efforts in Iraq.  We then sent him this picture illustrating my infactuation....or obsession if you'd rather

    Check out the Filmography and Video Museum links for more classic footage!  
    Maybe Randall should come out of retirement and take over for McNabb? At least that way the Eagles might make the playoffs!
    Anon_thumb Jay,Best video ever! old school gang-green...best memories. Speaking of great memories, how about me, you and kleinbud camping in the woods.How is everything going dude?

    Barack Obama
    Cover of Time Magazine<br />&quot;Why Barack Obama Could Be The Next President&quot;
    Barack Obama is creating a ground swell for the Democratic party that it hasn't seen in years.  His political views and background ranges from ordinary to extraordinary.  Most extraordinary of all is his momentum after winning the Iowa caucuses d ...
    Besides being a great speaker and orator , his career includes no significant accomplishments. He was elected to the US Senate only two years ago, after his Republican opponent’s campaign imploded in a sex scandal and the GOP could not find a credible replacement. Seems to me whenever I ask someone who is backing Obama 100% what his accomplishments are - I hear nothing but crickets.
    Anon_thumb Thanks for writing all of Obama's viewpoints in a clear and easy to follow format. I enjoy learning more about the candidates positions.
    Anon_thumb After having read Obama described as "a great speaker and orator" in these comments, I wonder if I am alone in finding him rather ineloquent and inarticulate? Then again, I suppose the same could be said of most politicians in the context of a representative democracy, as they must pander to the masses.

    Verizon Actiontec MI424WR Firmware Restore Screen
    Verizon Actiontec MI424WR Firmware Upgrade Screen
    (24 Jan 2008) Automatically Updated Firmware Breaks Static DHCP I've been using static DHCP from an Actiontec MI424WR wireless broadband router, provided "free" with my Verizon FiOS Internet service, to assign IP addresses on my home network.  E ...
    Anon_thumb wow. almost in september and no resolution from verizon - buggy firmware still the latest. boo! you may want to block incoming port 4567 to disable the phantom upgrade. i've been using firmware and firmware hasn't magically upgraded for months.
    Anon_thumb this firmware has many many issues with NAT as i'm sure anyone can see by checking the firewall log, i called Actiontec and they assured me they had fixed the issue and released to the code to Verizon, but Verizon has yet to release the code on their end.
    Anon_thumb I hope the fix can come out soon, I keep getting "NAT Error : connection pool is full. No connection created".

    border collie?
    In December of 2004, while I was stationed overseas in Naples, Italy, I adopted a street dog named Bella.  She had some minor health problems, in addition to being very shy and timid.  When I tried to toss a ball or toy for her she would shudder a ...
    this is the cutest, most well behaved dog i have ever met (i guess it's the italian genes). I had a small dog before that had a big attitude and he was a pain in the neck, but Bella is so affectionate, loyal and calm. I wish she did have a breed so that everyone could experience her personality. Please offer your input on her characteristics.
    Anon_thumb I my - we've got a dog that is about 40 lbs bigger but looks very much the same. She is the most well behaved dog ever, and we've wondered the same thing - border collie, australian sheperd, maybe even chow? We don't know, but she sometime acts like a sheep dog a herds children and other animals. She always sleeps at the front door, or during the day time at the front fence. Here are some photos: http://flickr.com/photos/christodd/tags/maggie
    Anon_thumb Looks to me like a Border Collie, not just the markings but the expression, too. I guess the street breeding made her smaller. She was lucky you found her, and you were lucky, too!

    Yeah now he has even more reason to cry: T.O. still owes Eagles nearly $800,000
    Anon_thumb On the field, he is/was still a great receiver. I miss seeing him in Eagles green. If only he'd gotten along better with McNabb and the other parts of the Eagles organization that mattered...

    Anon_thumb I am too a trackpoint afficionado; I've discovered, though, that an easy way to prevent joint damage and cramps is simply to... Switch finger.
    Anon_thumb I wouldn't worry about repetitive stress injury from using any kind of pointing device -- as long as the fingers remain relaxed, there shouldn't be a problem. I'm a classical guitarist (non-professional) who flexes index finger joints daily more than most typists probably do in a week. No problems. (By the way, I love my ThinkPad T43!) Nice article. Thanks.
