Why spend the money on a USB key?

Have you ever wondered why retailers charge $40 for a measly 8GB USB key? It’s all about being lame. Go get a micro usb card adapter for $7 and an 8GB microSD card for $10 and save yourself some money. Once you have the card reader, microSD cards are fairly inexpensive and you can quadruple …

Palm Springs and the ESRI Developer Summit

Been at the ESRI Developer Summit in Palm Springs since Sunday.  The drive out here was about 5, 5.5 hours but luckily Caleb drove the whole way.  I am NOT looking forward to this drive by myself tomorrow!  But I AM looking forward to seeing Jen and Kai… immensely. Anyways, we’re at the Hyatt Regency. …

I am Yong Pong

I finally got my photo site up and running.  It’s missing the gallery and some other things that I still have to add, but at least it’s there and not the base WP install any more.  And maybe some day there will be a reason that I actually HAVE a photo site.

Bittersweet family reunion

A week was spent in San Jose up with my in-laws and their larger-than-ginormous family.  The occasion was not a happy one, but everyone made the most of it and the comfort of family. Mary Lois Moriarty (Jen called her Grama ) left us on February 18th, 2010 and she will be sorely missed.  She …

A buncha stuff, and then some…

So a lot of things have happened since the last post… and even before then.

Christmas was crazy, shuffling back and forth between families plus a sick kid ridden with two ear …

Power Outage?!?! WTF?

Can you believe it!?!  Weaksauce!  No power… boo.  Thank goodness for laptops/netbooks and tethered modem access through the BlackBerry. By the way, the Dell Mini 10v is a pretty sweet netbook, if you’re looking for netbooks.  The EeePC’s have much better battery lifespan though. Hope the power comes back soon…

Kai’s Got a Brand New Bag

It’s funny how fast he’s growing.  I know, it’s only been a month but it seems like he’s changing so fast!  He can smile on purpose now, he’s a master kicker and of course, he’s got lungs on him that let the screaming go on for days.  He looks around a lot more nowadays and …

Kai Choi Pong

  There is a new addition to the youngest Pong family!  Kai Choi Pong was born on Friday, April 17th at 8:44am after a 12-hour labor.  He was delivered into this world at French Medical Hospital in San Luis Obispo, CA. Jen’s water broke around 8:30PM on Thursday, April 16th and after a quick call …
