Acer Aspire AH340-UA230N Windows Home Server 1.JPG

I was planing to replace my NAS device I got last year with something better. I loved the NAS and the idea of being able to access my files from any PC from the network.

After reading for a while I decided to go with a windows home server (WHS), It’s got a lot of functionality, much better than a normal NAS.

I ordered the Acer Aspire AH340-UA230N Windows Home Server from amazon 2 days ago and got it today.

The device looks great, its very sleek.

The specs are very good too:

My Red Eye Flight

Red Eye.jpg

I booked the red-eye out of San Diego to NY, the timing would be very good as I will arrive there early morning. The flight would depart San Diego INTERNATIONAL airport at 10pm and arrive at JFK airport at 7am and I would have the whole day ahead of me.

The problem was that my plane was coming from another destination (I don’t recall where) and it was late taking off from there, it arrived 45 mins late (10:45) and it was full of passengers.

So as soon as the aircraft landed they announced that they (Delta Airline Crew) are going to need are help to make the flight, “we have 30 minutes to clean the aircraft and get you on-board and close the gate” apparently because of the 11:30pm curfew the airport had the latest was 11:15 for an airplane to close it’s gate and be pushed-back. If we didn’t make it in time the flight would be canceled and we would be sent home and wait for the next flight that was 12 hours later and almost fully booked already.

The plane parked at the gate and the previous passengers looked like they were pushed off the plane and had a confused look on there faces. But that wasn’t my problem, I wanted to get on that plane. They changed crew and cleaned the aircraft in less than 5 mins. We started boarding – hectically at 10:55. I was in my seat at 11:10. The crew were all over the plane with arms flailing trying to stow the luggage in the over-head compartments.

It was 11:15 and we still haven’t pushed back so non of us new are we going to make it or not.

Finally at 11:18 the plane started to move and the crew told us that we OK, we are going to make it. That was one hell of a relief.

Went to Sammy’s a few days ago to try out their pizza, its been recommended by every one here so I decided to give it a try.

The closest place is just around the corner from where I live so that was easy. And after reading the reviews and awards that they got I definitely got excited.

The Godfather Restaurant – Review

I saw the commercial for this restaurant on TV and immediately said to my self that I had to try it.

Godfather Menu.jpg

It had nice atmosphere and a couple of movie posters. But the food wasn’t that good, it was pretty average.

We tried the fillet Minion (yesterdays special) and the Portobello Ravioli, the ravioli was a little sticky and the Minion was undercooked for my taste.

But still. I’m glad that I went.

The Hunt For New TV Shows

House M.D..jpg

In the last 6-8 weeks, more than 6 shows stop airing on TV either because it was canceled, completed or just because the season ended.

And because I was almost up-to-date with most of the show. I am now without any good shows to watch. So I’m on the hunt for new TV shows or shows I haven’t seen. Going to post about what I find out later.

P.S. The House M.D. finale was great.
