I am slowly getting back on track after losing almost everything. The distroyed vehicle has been replaced by a vehicle that fit my needs for the moment. I have started at a job that I may retire from if none of my plans work out to pay more.
Spare time is now spent doing research and with family. When the family is asleep I dig into information on magnetics, sound, CNC machines, and listen to college lectures or TED talks for intertainment and inspiration for my rapidly growing notebook. There seems to be an abundance of physics notes and quick sketches of ideas that I can not currently afford to play with. With an expiremental lab in the works and slowly gaining capability, some test are underway. Shhhhhh.
Sometimes when my aura covers a several state area in the electric bubble form drawing energy to me, I can feel the energy being collected as my body hair stands on end. I have noticed that this effect happens the most on low humidity nights with a temperature below about 65. I am fully aware that my perception is abnormal, that is not to say better or worse then most human senses, just different. We all seem to feel a little different from time to time and I am no exception. Apparently feeling different is normal, isn’t that a twist. If everyone is different and different is normal then whats the difference?
I picture my aura as a baby blue field of electric current that the largest bolts connect to my head and torso. The range can be constricted and expanded at will and I usually keep it close to me or buried inside me for fear of attracting attention. I will not go into detail of what attention I may attract here but rather on the fact that with practice I have learned to make it (or imagine it) to expand at my will. The view of the reader may differ greatly from my own but judgement doesn’t really worry me too much or I wouldn’t make this post. I have noticed that the electric aura tends to get some interference from storm clouds in the form of becoming more defined. This increase in definition may be due to positive and negative ions or electrons both of which also effect peoples behavior and serotonin levels, thus the full moon effect and people enjoying thunder storms. I know many such people and the effect of the home ion generators may effect them adversely but well funded research would be needed to prove that theory. Perhaps I just have a touch of “the madness” that the hatter spoke of.
I have recently been accused of a varity of madness by some of the arm chair psychatrist in my friends list whom have gotten most of their experiencs and knowledge while being diagnosed with a wide variety of disorders. However due to the diagnosis I finally have that feeling of fitting in with the 99% of society who is easily diagnosed with such madness and that feeling almost lasted the time it took me to eat a sandwich. Now I consider it a compliment as most of the most famous inventors and grat minds in history were often considered and accused of being mad.

I sometimes spend 20-30 hours a week playing games – In my defense it is better then watching most TV
I have tried / destroyed a lot of various controllers and sticks over the years.
The worst – any wireless or retractable cable styles
The best is a PlayStation 2 controller with a USB adapter, I also like the XBOX controller with the keyboard attachment but the extra cost of adapter is up to you. I kinda like be able to type with my thumbs and use hotkeys while leaning back in my chair but the key polling is a little slow.
The 2nd best is the logitech dual action – and it is cheaper then the PS2 + adapter
Mine is a little modified – so don’t expect the damage or art.
I currently use the logitech – get em at gamestop or on the web – I set em up for 16 controls and 2 sticks to steer
with one button as “shift” so I can use another 13 commands, this frees up my keyboard for macros and commands.
there is several games that don’t accept keypads, but I have yet to find one that I cant hack or figure out.

We tried a bunch of different host and servers for business and some personal space. Some of them charged enough to make the bank account cry, had downtime, bad customer service, or other problems that they didn’t list as part of their “deal”.
Most of the free sites were good for personall use if you dont mind looking amature and having a hard to remimber address. Some place ads on the page, have content restrictions, limited space, and no features like E-Mail or file hosting.
For the business ventures we needed a commerce solution that would not take half the profits just to process payments. We needed to host files for customer download, supply E-Mail for employees, keep inventory paperwork and add on services as needed.
We have multiple ventures that we can use to compare cost, service, and quality. We went with multiple host, programs, packages, and solutions. This approach allowed us to research and compare the competition in the hosting market.
Our best hosting service was tied between 2 companies G-Host and ProxyHost, The services and packages were almost the same and the prices only diffrent by a few cents.
We are currently using G-Host for our main business hosting and have gotten several upgrades as the business has grown.
