Road to Recovery… Watch Out!

Hey everyone,

I had undergone another dental surgery a couple Monday’s ago, which went okay… I got really sick immediately after; not an infection or anything, but an extremely bad cold. I rarely get sick… it took me out of comission for a while, but I’m on the road to recovery now. In a few days I should be pretty much back to normal.

So the past 11 days or so I’ve done very minimal work… but I hope to make up for it…:

1. XBox-O-Rama
2. Project J
3. The Forums
4. New List

1. XBox-O-Rama

Last night I went out and bought an XBox 360 Premium, an extra controller, and 2 games (Dead or Alive 4, Project Gothem Racing). It came to around 850-900 CDN with taxes. I really shouldn’t have bought it as I’ve never been big on consoles; never owned one before and the few times I’ve played them they’ve always made me yawn; I’ve always preferred the PC to them. Plus, it’s an added expense which isn’t even a tax write-off, but I figured what the hell…

To be honest, I’ve already grown tired of the games.. hehe.. but I hope I’ll find some more fun in them sometime in the future.. just need to pace myself with it I guess, and buy a couple more games in the future. It also looks nice in my entertainment centre though, so it’s not a total loss. Finally, to justify the price, I put an ad in the paper today selling my old computer, which will help cover the costs for it. Hell, I just spent over 6 grand on dental surgery anyhow, so blah.

2. Project J

To those who are long-time readers of my little blog, you may remember Project J. Project J was a secret project that Mr. j0n and I had teamed up on. However, due to a very busy schedule, Mr. j0n decided he couldn’t dedicate enough attention to the project with me, so I am now taking full control over it and it’s gonna be my baby. It originally was my idea anyhow, so maybe it’s for the best.

Anyhooooo, the domain is now transferred fully into my name, and I’m going to outsource the work on elance and/or Guru. I’m gonna put up around 3-5 grand and see if anyone bites to do it for that amount. They may not though.. anyhow, I’ll keep you posted.

3. The Forums

The three musketeers (CookingForums.net, MMAForums.net, and MovieForums.org) will soon not be naked anymore. I’ve hired Mr. Sheldon to skin all 3. I wired him the money a couple days ago (my first wire ever!). There goes another $2500-3000. Poof! See, it goes fast folks, haha.

And in my new ‘list’ I’m doing a bit of work on the forums. So for those of you who are interested in seeing a forum grow from the beginning up, you may (or may not) want to watch how I go about working on these 3. I don’t know any more than anyone else (probably a lot less!), but I bet you at least one will do very well (keep an eye on MMAForums). Oh, and heaven forbid any of you want to post on them, I won’t cry.
