My tech oriented blog!

I'm mainly starting this blog to have a place to post Windows administrative tips I discover, post tools I've written, and to discuss with other Windows administrators administrativey things! I will also post other techy topics and hopefully people will visit, despite the gazillion other blogs out there... If somebody out there in the great vast ethos of the internet finds some of this stuff useful, I will be happy.

Update: This blog was moved from MySpace to my personal website on April 22, 2006. (Just FYI)

Misty Carroll Memorial Exhibit

Donations are being accepted for the Misty Rachelle Carroll Memorial Bird Flight Exhibit at the Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia, SC. The exhibit introduces visitors to a variety of birds, their lives and struggles in the wild, while entertaining the crowd with the birds flying through audience. It is an excellent exhibit which does a lot, in my opinion, at educating the average person about how incredible birds are. The memorial will add a stage, housing facility, and a new Macaw to the exhibit. The exhibit currently only shows birds of prey. I think the new Macaw will add balance since Macaws are very gentle vegetarians. I will post more details in the future. If you are interested in donating, you can send money to the Riverbanks Zoo in Misty's name. The donation is tax-deductible.

About birds...

In case you have not noticed, I love birds. They are so incredibly loving, kind, and emotional. They are beautiful and live in the moment. They are intelligent. They are barometers of the environment. They can tell us so much, if we just listen. We must protect them. We must save those who are already in danger. I try to emulate them. I feel they are closer to the truths of the universe than we are. The more my mind syncs with my feathered companions, the less disconnected I feel from our small world. If you don't have any personal experience with a bird, I highly recommend spending some time outdoors watching them. You will learn something.
