I have to figure out how to run the frontier dsl internet from my house to the building I have just about finished, but that is about all I need to do. I could obviously just put up a wireless router and run the signal like that, but to be honest I am really paranoid about that sort of stuff and I always worry that my network is not that secure. I am really paranoid about the kid next door for one thing. He seems like a nice kid, but I know for a fact that he understands all of this internet stuff about a hundred times better than I do. In fact he is a genius with computers and he has already gotten into trouble for hacking into the computers at the high school. In truth he likely intended to get caught and probably would never have been caught if he had not wanted the attention.
At any rate I really love this idea. I had these guys build me a little cottage that looks like a log cabin from the outside. It sits about a hundred feet from my back door. I bought about a quarter of an acre from a guy who lives around the block behind my house. He needed the money and he owned close to an extra acre of land behind his house. Of course he did not care so much for what I wanted to do with the land, but in truth it is really not that big of a deal to him. It is not like a house and in truth I am only using my office on days when I do not have to go into the office down town. It is going to be a lot better than what I use now.

My son recently received a new Apple computer and is having the time of his life figuring out what this powerful machine can do. He has always been interested in computers, but we have only had a “family computer” until my wife and I got him the new system for his birthday. He could not have been more excited when he saw that big box. I asked him what his plans were for the computer. (Actually, I jokingly asked him, “So, you going to take over the world with that thing?”) He replied confidently: “I’m going to make music.”
At dinner, he could not stop talking about Apple Logic Pro and Logic Express, but he said that it required a paid download to get the software. From what I understand, the software is an audio workstation, allowing users to use samples, loops and electronic instrumentation to create tracks. This sounded like an exciting venture for him, as he has always had some type of musical instrument.
So, we offered up the extra cost for the software to see what he could do with it. Continue reading
