New Year, New Look, New Projects

Ok, i think i worked out all the bugs in the backend system that this website runs on.  Along with all that work i threw on a new face.. let’s see how this one works out.  As for new projects, i spent the past 30 hours redesigning the church website.  The beta site is now up and should be ready for population.  I’ve sent out an email to all the content managers and now it’s in there hands to fill it with stuff.  Getting that thing running was a challenge.  I’m running it with DotNetNuke, witch requries a few things like ASP 2.0, an SQL database (not mysql) and then i wanted to integrate Active Directory authenticion on it, as well as blind domain passthru (still working on that) and anoymous viewing for the general public.  I need to get out of this chair.  i’ve been having visions of php and asp code in my head.Š

Another try at this restfull weekend…

I’m going to try and give it another shoot here. Tonight we have have colonial night at Carla, Heather and Amber’s school. Tommrow we have… um.. i’m not sure what im doing tommrow. I need to wash cables before sunday. Need to start thinking about christmas shopping. Saturday night going to the speedway to watch the girls race. I think this is the last one right?

Spent a late night yesterday here at the station trying to finish setting up these new stations and all the streaming stations. Just waiting on parts.

wednesday we get out early, thursday going to the ranch for lunch with my famliy. it’s going to be at my sister’s this year instead of at my parents. that’s going to be.. odd.

here’s a little turkey humor if your so inclinded.

and now back to the task at hand…

and the saga continues

last night we had a staff meeting at toni roma’s for the staff at church. It started at 6:30 so i just left from work and got there before everyone else.. i sat in my car waiting for someone else to show up. pastor was next. so i get there. I end up sitting in a corner.. the next person to show up is Pricilla, and then joe a little later on and he sits on the other side of me. So we go through most of the evening fairly uneventfull… and as everyone is leaving joe and i are talking and he mentions something about of we could do a recording of the chior. and i said something like.. yeah i could put a recording together but i think they would rather have someone else brought in to do it. That opened a can of worms in it self. i went on to explain that i don’t think we could produce the quality that they are looking for but it was to late. he began quizing about this unspoken friction that sopousdly was between us. of my unwillingness to coroporate with the chior. and the more he dug into it i defending my position that we have made great strides in providing for the chior.
we changed almost all the floor wedges to inear so there would be less stage noise for them
we got the sm 56’s for them
i rewired the floor pocket excusivly for the chior
we re-designed the lighting plot to remove the dead spots from the cameras on the chior
i am also cheerfull when i talk to chior members or pricilla
i put together there priviate changing area and metting room so that they would not be distracted by the control crew and they could mount more robes hangers.
if anyone listens to my mixes now you can’t say that you can’t hear the chior.
so anyway we got all this out on the table.. we we pertty much decided that most of our “friction” has come from miscomunication. So i said ok.. then if she has request have her email me.. copy joe, copy patti, copy pastor.. let’s nip this miscommunication thing in the bud.

Calgone take me away

The only good thing about being out here is the Winersnitzel. It seams like everyone is asking for things that the previous person wasn’t able or didn’t want to do. So naturaly i’m swarmped with stuff. I just want to get out of here and get back home.

Held against my will

Well, i’m in Corpus today… not my most favorite spot on this earth. I’d rather be home taking care of Ozzie. He seams to be conjested alot more and draining alot. Before he was just sneezing. now you can hear all that junk in his throat when he’s breathing. I need to take him back to the vet. Hopefully i can get out of here in the next day or so. i have no desire to stick around here. And we are sopoused to leave town on friday and i’m on vacation next week. this is going to be rough.

It’s been a busy week….

Sorry its been so long since I wrote something, but its been kinda busy..let see..first when I went to pay the rent, the landlord said that he wanted to thank us for being great tenants, and wanted to give us new carpet in our bedrooms, so Thursday we moved ALL our furniture out and got the new carpet, then moved everything back, boy was I sore that day…I think he really wanted to give us carpet because he was afraid we were gonna get mold when the AC unit flooded Ashlee’s closet..its cool though..They STILL haven’t fixed the Scott Studios yet, so I have to schedule people 24-7..including myself doing a split shift (6am-10am then 7pm-12mid) ..we asked and asked the engineers to fix it but they were taking there time…So Big Al went and told Larry because He was finally got tired of it, well Larry yelled at the engineers and so they said HOPEFULLY it will be fixed by Monday or Tuesday, but they have been saying stuff like that for two weeks now…I just can’t wait til Payday…maybe one of these days we can do lunch..I gotta see those highlights!!!

The ratings came out….

Well, we came in Third overall, but I went down in Afternoons, Big Al went WAY up, Keith did better, even Ric did good, This was a strange book…its the polar opposite of the last book….everybody says that maybe because I was so focused on getting everybody else up, I sacrificed my show, or maybe it was my breakdown, I wasn’t focused because of the breakdown, but I am not gonna use that as a excuse..I will do better newxt time, I’m just gonna become a little more conservative..a little more classic rock during my show..get rid of the six oclock rock block, and change the fourplay at four to the All Request hour (since the beat also has a fourpaly at four and maybe people got confused..) you know me, YEA! WE MADE THIRD..okay back to work…lol…I seriously thought Hot Kiss was gonna dominate..I never expected Reggaton (which I despise!) and WILD (which I HATE!!!!) to do good..I dont care what the numbers say..Hot Kiss sounds way better than Mix…they sound old and boring while hot kiss sounds Fresh….the morning show rocks (they sound like they are having a good time, and the music is right on…) I give big props to Jay Cantu, Jay Z. and punkass…your day will come I guarantee..

Dreaded day

I had a bad day…

Today on my way to work, I started thinking about all the stuff that has been happening in my life, I know shouldn’t..but I did..I started thinking about the old times, my old friends, the way things used to be..I even heard one of my old friends on the air who was doing a remote just blocks away from work…but I said no, they are busy..and happy and I don’t need to bother them right now…it was a rough day…but I got through it…I told someone today, I miss the old times, and they said I would have times likes these every once in a while but things will get better…friends will always be there…and just make things better for yourself…and I think I am …I just miss the old days…I miss you guys..sorry for being a bother..but I had to write this to get this out of my head…sorry….
