Now rocking on the new (mt) server

Posted by SammyK on Jan 27, 2010 at 03:38 PM | Comments

I've owned SamPowers.NET for quite some time... about 8 years now. And for that 8 years it's been rocking on a beast server - a Dell Poweredge 1550.

This thing is a beast not because it's got the latest hardware or has a powerhouse CPU, no. It's a beast because back in 2001 when I purchased it, I took it downtown to the co-loc room at QX.net...

Thinking About Getting A Tattoo

Posted by SammyK on Jun 16, 2008 at 08:11 PM | Comments

I have thought about getting a tattoo for a long time now. I think 2008 is the year I will get one. Actually, I'm going to get one right before I leave on my world journey around the world with William in September. For me it will be symbolic of the year of travel that will no doubt change my life. It will be my "christening" for the trip. I...

Shorter Blog - More Frequently

Posted by SammyK on Jun 11, 2008 at 12:38 AM | Comments

So I'm thinking of making shorter blog posts but doing them more frequently. Doing a "mini-blog" if you will. I'll start with today - Jon and Steve left to go hang out at big Christian festivals for XXXChurch.com for the whole month of June. Brandon is still in L.A. and I am here by myself. Sad day. At the beginning of July, I will be going to...

Edmund the Dog

Posted by SammyK on Jan 30, 2006 at 09:13 PM | Comments

We have yet another dog. His name is Edmund and he is about the size of my foot. I woke up on Saturday morning to the faint "yelping" sound coming from outside of my door. When I rolled out of bed and opened the door, I was floored by the tiny little white rat that was bitting at my dad's toes. I stood there in blurry-eyed shock...

The Linguistics Professor From Strangeville

Posted by SammyK on Jan 15, 2006 at 01:00 AM | Comments

I have spent most of this Saturday working on this site. I have updated the aesthetics of the comment section (I still have even more upgrade plans for the future) and I created a search page that allows you to search blog entries, comments and even pictures on the site. Now I am going back and uploading all the old photos that I used to have...

First Day Back @ UK

Posted by SammyK on Jan 11, 2006 at 11:46 PM | Comments

Today was the first day of classes for UK students. I am taking 18 hours this semester, but this semester is almost a “turning point” in my college career. Despite the fact that if I had followed the “four year plan,” I would be graduating after this semester, I can finally see the “light at the end of the tunnel” with only two and...

Aslan is on the move

Posted by SammyK on Jan 02, 2006 at 06:38 PM | Comments

I totally forgot to mention in the previous entry that we have a new dog. His name is Aslan.

We were calling him Andon there for a while, but Aslan (from "The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe") seemed to work better. He is a four-month-old Goldendoodle, or a Golden Retriever / Poodle mix. He is quite different from Kona, well at ...

Goodbye '02, Hello '03!

Posted by SammyK on Dec 31, 2002 at 03:55 PM | Comments

Ah, another wonderful year is quickly coming to a close. Looking back on good ole 2002 brings back good memories. The most apparent and vivid memory is that of my graduation. The year that I had anticipated for my entire public school career is now over, but alas, a new year has come and it will bring joyfulness and happiness to the lives of...

Where's My Davey-Wavey?

Posted by SammyK on Aug 31, 2002 at 02:51 AM | Comments

Doode. David is *sniff*... gone. :( It seems as if it were just yesterday that I was over at his house at 3AM watching him program in QBASIC. Doooooooode! Good times, good times. Well, I know he will do just fine at IU. Everyone pray that David can be a light to all his non-Christian friends and associates. Seriously pray that because in 2...
