Just watched Men in Black 3 should’ve been in bed, but it mesmerized me till 2 AM. It’s not really the same, but as I saw agent Jay get insight from the past as to his present & his future I realized how my past has prepared me for my future! Thank you God for preparing me I am so excited about the incredible things you have in store for me!  Bless my family, my marriage, my kids and draw each one of us close to you that we may serve you for the many years that remain in each of our lives.

No Warrant or Cherry Pie, but as I was studying for my commercial pilot test one of the questions was what part of the eye needs to adjust for night vision and how long does it take?

Anyone know? Do you even know the parts of the eye? I didn’t! Well here you go Rods, Cones, Retina…know which one now or how long to adjust your eyes?

The answer is 30 minutes and its the Rods.

  • The light response of the rods peaks sharply in the blue; they respond very little to red light. This leads to some interesting phenomena:

    Red rose at twilight: In bright light, the color-sensitive cones are predominant and we see a brilliant red rose with somewhat more subdued green leaves. But at twilight, the less-sensitive cones begin to shut down for the night, and most of the vision comes from the rods. The rods pick up the green from the leaves much more strongly than the red from the petals, so the green leaves become brighter than the red petals!

    The ship captain has red instrument lights. Since the rods do not respond to red, the captain can gain full dark-adapted vision with the rods with which to watch for icebergs and other obstacles outside. It would be undesirable to examine anything with white light even for a moment, because the attainment of optimum night-vision may take up to a half-hour. Red lights do not spoil it.

    These phenomena arise from the nature of the rod-dominated dark-adapted vision, called scotopic vision.

Now with that bit of knowledge under your belt try this on…

Kinda cool how at the end of the day as it gets dark the sky reddens and then dusk turns to dark and then to night. The cool fact is that the wind-down from day to night happens through the shades of red so our eyes can adjust. Hmmm think God mighta done that on purpose?!

Cool to me!

No matter the odds God wins…

2 Chronicles 32:7-8 NLT

““Be strong and courageous! Don’t be afraid or discouraged because of the king of Assyria or his mighty army, for there is a power far greater on our side! He may have a great army, but they are merely men. We have the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles for us!”

Checking iTunes Gift Card Balance

Comments Off

Like many things Apple, when you must have total dictator control some simple things are a pain. Check an itunes gift card balance is always a search for the process of how to do it and it usually takes me at least 3 to 5 shots at google results to get it. Then I get frustrated and go to Apple.com and search and still 3 or 4 more clicks to get there. Stupid yes, but here is the link that can start me and you on the way to seeing if those cards you found buried in a drawer from last Christmas are used or not…Check your Apple Itunes Gift card balance

Error opening or Saving a wav attachment in Outlook 2003

Comments Off

I was frustrated so hopefully this will help you. I get my voicemails as .wav attachments in an email and it got so I couldn’t click to open them or save them and then try and open them.

Here is my error and problem – everytime that I try to open or save “wav” files that I get as attachments in emails, I was getting the following error:

Can’t create file: (file name). Right-click the folder you want to create
the file in, and then click Properties on the shortcut menu to check your
permissions for the folder.

…So here is the solution – Microsoft in their infinite wisdom sticks all your attachments in a temporary file and keeps them their even after you are finished with them and probably deleted most of them from your email inbox. I am running Outlook 2003 on a Windows Vista machine and here is all you have to do to fix your problem.

Go the the following and it is a hidden file so a booger to find, so change the THIS IS YOUR USER NAME to whatever your windows logon name is and the rest should be good a ‘copy and paste’.

C:\Users\ThisIsYourUserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\OLK2397

(this last part – OLK2397 – may be different on your machine, but try it as it is written here first)

Good luck! worked for me.

This site was helpful too http://www.ureader.com/msg/107516478.aspx

Link to Microsoft article Below is what Microsoft says

You exit Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 or Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 while e-mail attachments are open. These attachments are from e-mail messages that are in a secure Outlook folder. Alternatively, Outlook unexpectedly closes.

When this occurs, the attachments remain in the “Outlook Secure Temporary File” folder. This occurs even if you close the attachments after you exit Outlook.

Additionally, if you open the attachment to the e-mail message from the Preview pane, you do not receive a prompt to save changes when you exit Outlook.

This problem occurs because Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007 cannot remove the temporary file or dispose of the secure temporary folder while the attachments are open.

Ok it’s your birthday, we goin to party like it’s yo birthday!

How to Jailbreak Iphone 3GS unteathered ios 5.1.1 – Here I go again on my own… “Whitesnake 1987″ – Iphone 3GS Jailbreak

Iphone Firmware download Iclarified step by step instructions

Upgrading your iPhone to iOS 5.1.1 through iTunes will update your baseband, potential removing or ruining your chances for an unlock. Please follow this tutorial on how to update to iOS 5.1.1 using a custom ipsw if you need an unlock. Remember to save your SHSH Blobs by following this tutorial before continuing.

IOS 5.0.1 still issues, but mainly I think from snappy, which is crappy a program that is supposed to make the camera load faster and it crashes and kills the camera and messes things up in ios 5 vs 4.3 when it was kinda helpful. Paid for that one too, so 5.1.1 won’t see crappy snappy come back!

So I get done I think, go on about my business and let the 28GB of data get put back on my phone and holy cow no jailbreak! Really, what the heck, so I try Iclarified Instructions and no dice. I get an error 2000. So I google it and I had to put my phone in DFU mode and then click the jailbreak button (Step 6) and then violia! the jailbreak begins…! and this way I don’t have to go through the install or reload all my stuff=songs, apps, etc again since I already did that on the upgrade to 5.1.1. for the last 2+ hours. Thanks google and ijailbreak.com

Run pineapple, Run!
