    • I need YOU to Name my New Blog

      10 years ago

      Glaxton

      Hello everyone.

      No one is better than this RoosterTeeth community than being creative!

      I recently wrote a post on my blog www.EllisBenus.com detailing how I was Repurposing to an Idea Blog and Launching a Political Blog

      The political blog will chronicle my journey from a completely politically ignorant person to a well-informed and involved citizen. However, I need a name for it!!!

      Please tell me what I should name my new political blog.

      It should be short, informative and catchy while also being purchasable in a .com domain name.

      I look forward to reading your ideas!

    • Skylink SC-1000 Home Alarm System

      in Forums > Skylink SC-1000 Home Alarm System | Follow this topic

      Glaxton

      I have recently been looking at securing my home via a home alarm system, not to mention lowering my insurance rates as well.
      My Blog Post About This

      I found the Skylink SC-1000 on Amazon and fell in love with the facts that:

      1) It's wireless ( no punching holes in my walls )
      2) It has no maintenance fees ( forget that monthly bill! )
      3) It costs less than $200 ( which means just the insurance deduction will pay for this thing in 1 year )

      I was curious if anyone else has any experience installing alarm systems for themselves, or better yet, anyone that has experience with this particular unit, model, or brand of alarm.

      Also, since this unit is not hooked up to a central monitoring service, and isntead has a pre-recorded dialer, I also wanted to know if anyone has any experience with a similar system. Do all 911 operating centers accept pre-recorded distress calls, etc...?

      Thank You in advance for your great, productive and informative posts.

      For those not wanting to click through to Amazon.com

      From the Manufacturer
      This kit comes with a complete wireless security system that can be installed in minutes. Includes: motion sensor and two door/window sensors, emergency dialer and security control panel. The SC-1000 is suitable for Homes, Business Offices, 24-hour stores, Retail Operations or wherever security is a concern. The emergency dialer (AD433S) is your own monitoring center without any monitoring fees. If any sensors are triggered when the system is armed, the siren will sound and it will send a wireless signal to the dialer that will call for help at the same time. You can program the emergency dialer to call up to 9 different phone numbers including your own cellular phone, pager, your doctor, relatives, friends, neighbors, etc. Once the recipient picks up the phone, the emergency dialer will play your pre-recorded message and inform the recipient that you are in an emergency situation and to send help right away

      Product Description
      Skylink Wireless Alarm System... It's a complete WIRELESS security system that can be installed easily in minutes.

    • A year?! Are you kidding me?!

      10 years ago

      Glaxton

      Wow, for the longest time I lived and breathed this site, and now I see my last journal was March 20th, of 2008. A freaking year ago!

      Wow...

      Something needs to change.

      I also have not watched any RvB episodes for longer than that.

      I think it all started with my inability to greet people anymore, but that really shouldn't be a big deal.

      Whatever the case, I miss a lot of the people on this site I used to converse with reguarly.

      I can still remember when I first got involved with this website, I would hit refresh over and over (even downloaded the RefreshEvery firefox extension) to see the wonderful 1 New Alert link.

      Now I have not logged in for a year...

      Man, I even remember dissing on all of the 50+'s who never logged in anymore...

      Why has this happened?

      Anyway, I never check Facebook, MySpace, or any of the others anymore either.

      I guess it's just me.

      Well, flame the heck out of me, and I promise to check back soon. Like tomorrow, not 12 months from now.

    • Death to Cell Phone!

      11 years ago

      Glaxton

      My entire life I've always hated cell phones. But like everyone else, I've got one.

      Now my wife and I both have cell phones costing us $100 a month with AT&T.

      I'm sick of it!
      I'm tired of paying for something I hate, when I've lied myself into thinking I need it!

      So, what's the alternative?
      Let's see...
      10 years ago if you weren't home, people left you a message.
      10 years people did not think they needed to reach you wherever you were.
      I intend to go back to 10 years ago using Skype.

      A friend of mine has the best setup.
      He has a simple Trac phone (or some pay-as-you-go phone) which he never uses the minutes on because he only uses it for people to leave him voice mails and the "in case of emergencies" setup. Then he calls people back on Skype for free. I just checked their rates and you can call as many people as you want for $3 per month.

      Also, Skype is coming out with their own mobile phone but it's not in the US yet.

      The main reason I'm writing about this is because I was curious if anyone around here was using Skype or any other VOIP. If so, please tell me your experiences.

      Thank You!

      If I do switch, be expecting journals about the change over! smiley1.gif

    • Social Networking

      Glaxton

      I just recently started actually trying to work with Social Networking websites.

      You can find me under Ellis Benus on LinkedIn, Myspace and FaceBook.

      They are the only places I'm at currently, and probably will remain (other than here!)

      Just a short one for today, except to say...

      I played the Devil at church today in an illustrated song.
      Hopefully I will have pictures and video soon! smiley1.gif

    • The Prysms is dead... Long Live... Uh...

      11 years ago

      Glaxton

      The Prysms Weekly was a short lived paper publication in my native Columbia, Missouri.

      Unfortunately, this local print publication had a great community following and fantastic local contributors, and when it ceased to exist, for reasons I will not discuss, they no longer had an outlet for their writing.

      I am hoping to relaunch this print publication as a purely online resource with all the original contributors who wrote for The Prysms Weekly, as well as several new writers. Luckily I know several graduates from Columbia's University of Missouri School of Journalism. Already I've been in contact with several of the original writers. They are just as excited as I am about the future of this resource.

      Personally, politics and local affairs have never been a strong suite of mine. As I've been getting older and more involved in the community, like owning vehicles, owing a home, and paying more taxes, I've been paying a lot more attention to what goes on in this town I've lived in for 23 of my 23 years

      One of the many reasons The Prysms probably failed is that the owner attempted to make it a print publication. As I said before, when I relaunch the magazine/paper it will be as only an online service. I am hoping to eventually sell advertising to local Columbia businesses and use the proceeds to pay the content contributors, but that will not be something I pursue immediately.

      I'm very excited about getting this off the ground, and it's been awesome finding the people who did write for the Prysms and to hear their fervor as well.

      It's doubtful much of the locally focused articles will appeal to the audience reading this journal, but hopefully there will also be some interesting artwork as well as nationally focused works and articles that don't really have a geographic focus.

      I just wanted to share that with you all as I'm really excited about it and cannot share it publicly yet since I have not talked with the new contributors to come up with a name. The lack of a name for the new site is the "Uh..." part of the post title. Hopefully the veterans and the new folks will be able to come up with a great new name. Suggestions here are welcome.

      Whenever we do launch, I will expect each of you reading to pay a visit!

      Peace Out!

    • Non-Conformity IS Conforming!

      11 years ago

      Glaxton

      James Thurber - “Why do you have to be a nonconformist like everybody else?â€Â

      You are conforming to being a non-conformist...
      Anarchist are organized...
      Rebels band together...
      Crazies are all sent to the same place...

      Regardless, everyone falls into a group and it's impossible to escape.

      The reason I'm commenting on this, is because I watched American Idol Tuesday night with my wife.

      What does the big AI have to do with my rant on Non-Conformity?

      Almost all of the males who sang Tuesday night appeared (to me) to be attempting to dress, and act,
      according to a handful of groups. The two who irritated me the most were the Emo and Rocker groupies.

      I was irritated because these people are trying to be something special and something different,
      but instead of doing so, they only managed to look like every other stereotypical Rock and Emo fan.

      They are trying to define themselves as different, and only managed to pigeonhole themselves.

      Am I overly passionate about something that doesn't affect me? Yeah...

      Whatever my reasoning, or lack there of, it's irritating to see these little punks who think to say
      "this is who I am" while who they are is exactly like everyone else in there "group."

      Why does this irritate me?

      Because they are false prophets. They are claiming to be different, and wanting to stand out.
      However, instead they are just blending in more.

      Has everything already been done? Is there no one who is truly different?

      I don't know, but I hope there is something left to be done, and I hope there are different people out there.

      But... I can guarantee being Emo or a Rocker has already been done, and it doesn't make you different!

    • Big Business

      11 years ago

      Glaxton

      Well, I had a sort of exciting meeting today.

      A local business here in Columbia, Missouri named the Add Sheet
      is under new management after almost 40 years.

      I met with one of the new owners (two partners) about possibly designing a web site for them.
      As you can see, the above site link is a little dated.
      One of the owners said that himself, so I don't feel bad agreeing with him.

      Regardless, the exciting news is that if I impress them with what I can do, they might consider
      a partnership with myself and their company. This way, when they offer a client advertising services
      they can also offer them an online ad presence.

      Also, I love IT Architecture and they are going to need some scalable technology initiatives
      drafted, which I offered to help with as well.

      All-in-All I could wind up not making a dime, or this could potentially help my business explode.

      A down side is that they might want me to work from their offices more than work from my home office,
      but if I can make more money doing that, then I don't think I would be bothered by it in the least.

      Anywhoo, hope and pray for me that it will be lucrative! smiley1.gif

      I would highly suggest those two...however, I will still strongly caution on requiem, because it's downright brutal...its not so much violence, but its...wow...I was depressed for like 3 days after watching it, but they are both masterpieces. Incredible movies.

      ooh, I am curious about American Gangster as well....I was waiting for a little info from one of my buddies before renting though...let me know what you think, if you will :)

      I agree...Hollywood is making me sad with the latest put outs, but I still have quite a big list of to-see movies from a few years ago still

    • caboose72

      11 years ago

      3:10 is a good movie, I enjoyed it quite a lot...not only is it entertaining and fun, but there is also a level you can analyze and not come up wanting. I tend to do that quite a lot in good movies though...so maybe I am odd. :P

      If you have not seen it already, I would suggest sunshine to you, I saw it just recently and I enjoyed it quite a bit.

      also, if you are into more powerful psychological films (and by that I do not mean the Saw series -_-) and can enjoy the deeper meaning of a film as well as the artistic value, I would highly recommend Requiem for a dream and The Fountain, which happen to be my favorite movies.

      okay, sorry...end of movie nut rant.

      Luke 2:1-20

      And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria. So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city. Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

      Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.â€Â
      And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
      “ Glory to God in the highest,
      And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!â€Â

      So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.†And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. Now when they had seen Him, they made widely[d] known the saying which was told them concerning this Child. And all those who heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart. Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told them.
