Day 1

4 February 2008

day 1

So today was pretty much hurry up and wait. Up at 545, home at 5pm. We had a different lecture each hour on the hour of the morning tha lasted a half an hour. I think we covered about 2 1/2 to 3 hours of material. But hey, that is OK. I am trying to just sit back and follow the group. I think that is the therapeutic approach and maybe something I need to learn, just sit back and enjoy the ride.

I wasnt in a rush all day, even with all the miscues, or problems I wont go into here. Because after all, hurrying up wont get me home faster. October/November comes when it does. Still 250+ days to go.

I inserted the picture Day 1 from my webcam. Maybe I will do the daily picture like some people do as something to keep me entertained. I wonder how much I will be able to tell from other than when I got a haircut.

The vote is on. Leave a comment if I should or should not take the daily picture. If you don’t know what I am talking about, look below or CLICK HERE

Safely in Norfolk! The Journey Begins…

3 February 2008

I had a busy day getting ready.  I did manage to throw the football with Timothy (his biggest concern is no one to throw with this year).  I must admit I have thrown a football more in the last few months than in the previous 37 years.  I still have a hard time throwing a spiral (thanks Mr. Rockcamp) but Timothy is teaching me how!

I arrived safely in Norfolk tonight at 730pm.  Went right to the CBH on base and no reservation!  So I am now at a hotel which just means getting up an hour earlier to commute.

Thats OK, I dont think I will have much of a commute for the rest of the year!

(for you tech fans out there my IP cam, FTP server and remote access via Logmein work just like I am at home! [thanks Steve])

Might be my favorite photo of all time. Lilly.

Fears… irony

1 February 2008

As a child of the 70s there were two primary fears I had as a little boy.

1. War (nuclear with Russia specifically)
2. Cancer

My Mom died of cancer when I was 24.
Now I am off to war.

However, I am military doctor.

This begs the question.  Does life choose us, or do we choose life?

Quote of the week

30 January 2008

“That settles it. Brian, I think I hate your router.”
-Steve Sizemore after hours of working on getting my IP camera working.

I am happy to announce that his guidance led to it now working and he will live happily after all.


The email that started it all.

I think what I want to try next is to put your DSL modem in bridge mode.  This would completely turn of the router / firewall functions on the modem AND put you real ip address on the trendnet.  This is how I’m setup here.  Once we get the modem in bridge mode, I’d like to try the both trendnet and the Linksys.  I’d also like to revert back to port 1024.

If you get a change do a google search on wirespeed and bridge mode.  Also, find out if the trendnet has a place to enter DSL login information.  I think the setting is called PPPOE.

What do you think?

Maybe this is why the SD1000 is only $135 now. They are wildly popular.
