Do you have any new year's resolutions?

Postby UALOneKPlus on Tue Dec 30, 2003 4:38 am

It's that time of the year again!

I have a few resolutions:

1. Spend less money on computer stuff in 2004 than I did in 2003 :D

2. Spend far more time at home with my family than on the road travelling for business.

3. Be more health conscious - work out more, eat healthy home prepared meals, and drink more water every day.

4. Take my family on a vacation to Europe.

Well, I don't have any real resolutions, but I want to try to do more Folding@Home work units with my computers. If you want to find out more about Folding@Home, click here.

Edit: You can find out more about the folding team of which I'm a part here.

My new years resolutions are:

1. Lose weight
2. Register my web-based business as a non-profit organization
3. purchase 8x DVD burner
4. Create Standard for DVD reviews
5. triumph over evil :wink:

Not neccisarily in that order though.
Punch Cards -> Paper Tape -> Tape Drive -> 8" Floppy Diskette -> 5 1/4" Floppy Diskette -> 3 1/2" "Flippy" Diskette -> CD-R -> DVD±R -> BD-R

nope.. Jennifer doesn't even post on the internet. She mainly only uses it to do homework from her college and check email. i don't balme her though, cause she is on a slow slow connection

EDIT:
That folding@home thing looks interesting...ill have an extra computer here so....
i was wondering what folding@home was...I saw ppl with stuff in their sigs and stuff in the overclockersclub forums and was wondering what it was.
I have now downloaded the screensaver, When I get my new computer (probably tomorrow), this one here is gonna be on a lot with that screensaver running, and i will install the screensaver on my new one, and i will install the screensaver on my dad's dual 550 if he is ok with it.
I am now part of the overclockersclub.com team.

I gotta second that one. You seem to treat her like a queen along with being giving in the cool gift department. You're doing just fine, Monte. :wink:

Not much in lines of resolutions, but I would like to concentrate on:
01) Finding another line of work...
02) Try to get more than 5 hours of sleep...

I too gotta try this. Less sleep, going long without workouts, and ignoring proper eating times have started to take it's toll.

Maybe the answer for 1) is Get Married itself :) :)

Btw, enjoy the parties today but drive carefully everyone!
Stone walls do not a prison make,
Nor iron bars a cage;
Minds innocent and quiet take
That for an hermitage;
If I have freedom in my love,
And in my soul am free,
Angels alone that soar above
Enjoy such liberty. - Richard Lovelace

I'm getting burned out with physical therapy. I still enjoy it...just not as much as I used to. I think I'm getting the classic "burned out therapist" syndrome.

I'm keeping my options open: Med Tech (Radiology, etc.), Fed or State Law Enforcement.

Yea, I know what you mean. It seems like careers these days are really tough to hang onto. I get bored of doing the same thing after 3-5 years or so.

Too bad I didn't win the power ball :)

Yeah. Hell, just having a job is being lucky. My job is secure. The company is doing great and I'm relied upon to a high degree. You get jaded after awhile when you see people that you suspect are trying to play the system, while those who really need the help get shunned.
