Have you ever wanted to download an album of photos from on facebook, but didn't want to have to download each image individually? I know I sure did want to, and so I looked around for something that would do this.
You would be surprised if I gave you the number of programs that claimed to work, and didn't. Apps on facebook, addons in FireFox, but then I found this, and it worked very nicely. Download it here. http://fotobounce.com/ There are a few aspects I didn't like, like how it didn't use the captions from the photos for titles, but that's okay.
After logging in Facebook in...

     If you remember reading my post about Windows Live Photo Gallery http://randomtechyrants.blogspot.com/2010/10/windows-live-photo-gallery-beta.html you'll know how I was ranting about how cool it was, well I've found something I like even more.
     It's called Picasa, from Google. It has many of the same features as Windows Live Photo Gallery, but it's from Google, and it seems to be a good bit faster, Google always has the fastest programs. Google finds faces, and will try and recommend who they are, from other persons in your collection, and I'...

Recently I filled the ink in our printer, a Brother MFC-J615W, I have filled other ink cartridges in the past, and in most cases I had found websites telling how to get that cartridges open, but in this case I couldn’t, so I decided that I would help out other people like me, and give some instructions on how to do this.

I recommend you read all the instructions before trying this, and then follow along step by step as you do it. Refilling ink, if done correctly, is much cheaper than buying new cartridges all the time.   My cluttered work area.
  The parts of the...

     I think everybody knows it's important to back up important data. I've long done this, to a portable hard drive. Every single one of The Bible Animated's files are safely stored on a portable hard-drive, the trouble is, it's stored about two feet away from my laptop, so if something ruined my laptop, say a fire, it'd ruin the portable hard-drive as well.
     Well Aldi just had 8GB flash-drives on sale, for only 10 dollars, I know a good deal when I see one, and that is a great deal, so I bought three of them. Now I've backed up all of the...

     For anybody who follows any of the happenings with The Bible Animated and knows that I and the president are one and the same, you’ll realize I’m trying to be all about this. Now last Sunday my best friend and I were talking after the service and she said that our church doesn’t focus on evangelism enough, and I agree. I probably don’t, my family doesn’t, I think by and large the body of Christ doesn’t. Well the last “sermon” I did for The Bible Animated, was all about sharing what we know, so to challenge the congregation at our church I made this slide...

I've just set up Google Analytics on a website I admin, http://www.thebibleanimated.com/
After my 24 hour waiting period to gather up data, I'm starting to see the stats. So far I've had a few page hits, and I am amazed at the data Google has gathered. To name a few, screen res, color depth, browser, OS, Java version, Flash version, etc. Now I could get all weird out and stop using the internet forever, because Google is gathering so much data, or I could embrace this, which I am doing. Knowing this kind of information helps web masters optimize their site for the viewers. If I have a...

I've had the most trouble with this all my life.
I can't stand it when computer repair places, or software says works with Mac and PC. A Mac is a PC. PC stands for Personal Computer, since when is the only personal computer a windows machine. They might own most of the market, but they are by no means the only Personal Computer. I can't stand it when, a company, or individual, who should know better says Mac and PC. I just don't get it people, a Mac is a PC, as are a Linux, Windows, Solaris, Ubuntu, etc.

I'm never going to out grow this, unless one day the industry takes PC...

     I have been a user of Windows Live Photo Gallery for a while and used it to tag lots of people, but recently Windows came out out with Windows Live Photo Gallery Beta which will suggest people who the faces belong to. Well recently  I was going to be out for an afternoon so I took my portable hard-drive and plugged it in, then let Windows Live Photo Gallery scan through the pictures to look for faces. I have a few thousand photos and it went through all of the, and found me about eight hundred new faces and had forty people that it found faces for. Out of all the...

Sitting here at Harbor Freight,
Wondering how much longer I'll have to wait.
For a customer to come through,
and give me a chance something to do.
It gets boring here on register,
Sometimes I feel like a legislator.
Doing nothing, getting paid,
Somebody please, come to my aid.
Somebody please give me work,
Worry not I won't shirk.
As the minutes slowly drag by,
Wait do I see something in the corner of my eye!
A customer finally, with basket in his hand,
Snazzely dressed, and nicely tanned....

It's a funny thing what poetry can do,
How it can pull a smile or tears from you.
Just written words on the pages,
That transcend through time and ages.
It's been written in love and war,
Yet it always seems to mean more.
Than the same written without rhyme,
Without, beat, rhythm, or in line.
Sometimes things can only be said,
Written in verse, or they're dead.
