It’s awful quiet in here….

Back in May I changed my eating habits with the goal to become healthier. Just like 86% of Americans I used to have a very bad diet. High in Starches, low in fiber, too many processed foods.

At 280 Pounds and in the worst shape of my life I was worried about all kinds of health problem. Diabetes, Heart Disease and Stroke are all prevalent in my family. I decided I did not want to die in just a few years from something I could prevent through proper nutrition.

Using proper nutrition you can have a healthy body.  Since May 1st I have lost 40 pounds and more importantly with good nutrition I feel better and am close to the best shape of my life.

I came across an interesting article in the New York Times Health segment today.

If you are a parent today with small children at home you must read this story. I found it truly surprising.

No Posts? Wazzup?

Hi all, I just wanted to drop you all a note about why so few posts. I’m sure your thinking that I must be finding interesting stuff so I’m just dissing you…

lol No not really but I am quite busy. I wish it was all paying work but alas mostly it is personal hobbies and interests.

I am actually working on 2 other blogs right now. They are not public yet but should be available in the next couple weeks. I am finding both these projects to be very exciting.

I guess I will post a little video I found yesterday…

Google Voice FTW

Hi all!

I think I mentioned Google Voice some time ago. It seems to be working real well and so far I have only heard one complaint about a voice mail giving a weird response.

If you do not have Google Voice but think you may want to try it you have to request an invite.  http://google.com/voice

What does it do…

Google Voice is a Centralized Voice-mail system. You can assign many phones to forward all missed calls directly to a single voicemail in-box. You can access these voice-mails on your phone like normal (with a new number to dial). You can also access these voicemails on the internet.

The Voice-mails once received into the Google servers are transcribed into the language of your choice. The transcriptions are not yet perfect but it almost always gets numbers and clearly enunciated words correctly. This is especially nice when you can just click a button and create a new contact with as much of the vital information as can be taken from the transcription. Of course you can listen to the original recording and like Network cell voice-mail the recordings will be saved for only 14 days. That is unless you save it separately which is easy to do.

Really the best part about it is the ability to access everything on the web. If you already have a Gmail account an if you’re using Google contacts the transition is easy and simple.

Another nice point is that if you get the free for life google phone number you can easily send and receive sms messages from the computer keyboard. These message just so happen to get stored in thread form for easy reading and archival.

With or without a Google number you can also dial a number to call someone on a separate phone. So you want to call your Auntie Em? You simple goto your Gmail contacts and select Auntie Em’s listing. Next to her number will be a call button. When you press this call button a dialog comes up and asks you which phone you wish to call from.  On my setup I can use either “My Cell Phone” or “My MagicJack”. You just select which phone you want to use and check if you want to save the settings. Clicky Clicky and Google voice will call the phone you selected, when you answer the phone it automatically dials out the correct number you wanted to call.

I think it is very cool, especially if your one of those people that is in front of a computer more often than not.
