Failing

If you read my last blog post, you know I said I was going to write everyday from now on.  Unfortunately, that was a couple of days ago, and as you can see I didn't stick to my statement.

I forgot.  Really, after I posted that, I didn't remember to write another blog the next day.  As I'm writing this, I realize I need to set the time apart to blog in my calendar — with reminders and everything!

The goal is to learn and practice to write my thoughts out, but if I don't do it, then I won't really get to do what this.

It's not easy having a clear thought of what each blog post should be about, and I'm pretty confident you can find a lot of similar posts around the internet that can back this up.

What am I doing right now? Looking at domains from namecheap.com - they're really cheap!  I want to move some of my domains over and try them out as well as perhaps register a new domain to host my new projects that I can only hope one day will come into fruition.

Until next time, be well.

I am going to write daily

Somewhere, I don't know where, I read writing is a good exercise for your mind because it forces you to put your thoughts together and come up with something that makes sense (most of the times).

Today, or tonight really, I'm taking the first step in a new direction that will force me to write something here daily. I really want to keep my word this time,

I will begin by writing my about page, as a quick intro so anyone who wonders here one day, might care to know who I am or who I was.

Also, who knows, maybe my children will read this one day and wonder just what the heck I was thinking.

Live and let live.

Google shares more Gmail outage info

Google shares more details on what caused the Gmail outage on Tuesday -- I really admire this kind of behavior and communication with its customers.

Discipline is a virtue

One of the things I struggle a lot with is Discipline.  I want to get better at what I am doing, but get distracted by learning how to get better at what I should be doing, thus not doing anything.

This is quite a problem when you're trying to finish up a project and are faced with pending deadlines.  I suspect that the perfectionist in me keeps me from completing something until I have exhausted all research on ways to effectively perform a desired task.  As some may already know, this takes up a lot of time, and the fastastic and ever-entertaining internet does not help me balance this equation.

I have also noticed that I am constantly being distracted and that my mind roams in the social cloud, dreaming of possible products and possibilites but seldomly detailing the requirements for such projects.  I keep saying to myself that I need to focus on the task at hand, but before I notice, I'm wandering off finding something shiny to look at.

I am afraid of myself sometimes, since my behavior doesn't help me advance towards the goals I have set forth for myself.

What am I doing?

As if it wasn't obvious, I haven't been updating my blog as often as I should or would like to. So in order to save face, I usually update my twitter account.

You can also stalk--err follow me on friendfeed.

I need to reconsider the purpose of this blog and if I'm really going to follow up on it. Until then, happy browsing -- you know where to find me.

Erator's Weekly Pick: the bird and the bee

A friend suggested I do these "weekly picks" since I am always recommeding stuff.

So for this week I will recommend a music album: the bird and the bee
I really like this album, it flows even if a lot of the tracks have different styles, though the whole album only lasts about 35 minutes. The music style is similar to the one of Feist, with a very "indie" feel.

Check out some of their songs using Seeqpod:

When Twitter stumbles, the world panics!

Twitter was down today (not that I noticed, thankfully) and the reason was "too many connections" -- the price to pay when you become a staple of the internet!
