Firewire is dead. Long live USB!

I went looking for a Firewire cable for Mac to Mac target disk mode usage today and hit up Wal-Mart and Radio Shack. I went to an HEB Plus! too, but wasn’t really expecting them to have it… they had pretty much the same selection as Wal-Mart and Radio Shack though. None of them had 6-pin to 6-pin Firewire cables.

The guy at Radio Shack that tried to help me didn’t even know what Firewire was. He asked me what it was used for and when I replied “computers,” he asked me what it plugged into and I replied “uhh… Firewire ports.” After that, he asked me if it was an internal or external cable. At that point, I probably gave him a face that said “move out of my way and let me look for it myself since you obviously don’t know what I’m talking about” so he just pointed me towards the computer cables section.

Is Firewire really that rare now? Shouldn’t at least Radio Shack have them?

I finally ventured into a Circuit City and paid way too much for the cable I was looking for.

In other news, Kat tells me that Round Rock Donuts’ drive through is now open 24 hours. That is absolutely splendid news.


Hello my poor blog!

I’ve been trying to find a picture of my WoW gnome, Powderpuff, but have been unsuccessful. Does anyone have a screenshot of my pink haired gnome? =) Almost makes me tempted to reactivate so I can take a screenshot…

I recently purchases a macro lens that is quite fun to use, although I haven’t shot with it all that much yet. I posted a few shots with it previously, but here are a few more:

I also purchased GRAW2 for Andrew (as well as a copy for myself) and we’ve been playing through the co-op missions which has been pretty entertaining. I agree with Mark that it would probably be more fun with a keyboard and mouse, but there’s just no beating the convenience of multiple people playing on one 360 (and over Xbox Live) and not having to arrange a LAN party (… which we should do sometime =).

Oh… by the way, anyone want to buy a black MacBook (2GHz, 2GB RAM, 120GB HD)?
