Freedom Festival Car Show

September 8th, 2008 | Posted by tonyscha in Cars/Trucks - (0 Comments)

Just thought I would share a few photos from the Freedom Festival Car Show hosted at Duffy’s from August 30th, 2008

First of was an electric Fierro, had batteries in the front and back of the car, I wish I would have spent more time looking at it.

This is a Hurst Oldsmobile, not sure if I have ever seen one prior to this… so why not take a picture?

If I build a hotrod someday I want one similar to this, atleast this is my kind of style.

WTF batman? Nope just the batmobile.

This truck was pretty nice, I think it was a 67 Chevy if I remember correctly. The interior was nicely done, I think I need to take some pointers from it.

And probably my favorite car was one I seen on the way out, a Camaro, I didnt check out what year, but it was for sale, now only if I had 20K to spend on a car.

Oh what a weekend

September 7th, 2008 | Posted by tonyscha in Personal - (0 Comments)

Alright, so I pretended it was my birthday this weekend, so we could get this other guy out of his house while his wife planned for a surpise birthday party for him. We drank a few beers and decided to head back early, got back and there was everyone waiting to surpise him… and he was really confused, so I guess the surpise birthday party worked.

Then we decided to give our dog a MoHawk on saturday night. We are going to order some hair dye for our dog off the internet, and dye the MoHawk a crazy color, I will have to post pictures when its all said and done.

Its sad to say that summer is basicly over, its dark at like 8pm now… and its been so cool out, which I am not complain I do like the 70 degree weather, just miss the warm summer days.

Dropbox for linux

September 5th, 2008 | Posted by tonyscha in Technology - (0 Comments)

Dropbox finally made there linux release available to everyone, if you have an invite or already a member you can download it from this link http://www.getdropbox.com/beta. There is a fedora (rpm) and Ubuntu (deb) install for x86 and x86_64. I installed it, and it started to sync up my files that I uploaded from windows. They even have the source code available if that is more your liking. Below I included a few screenshots so you can see the real deal.

Here you can see after you install it and right click on the dropbox icon.

Here is a screenshot of the folders that it synced up

And the overall screenshot of how it displays on the desktop

I uploaded these photos to dropbox to see if everything works, and it did as expected. This release seems to be fairly good. The only complaint I have is the Icon is a little small which can be seen in the third photo.

Here are the links from dropbox

Google Chrome Review 1

September 3rd, 2008 | Posted by tonyscha in Technology - (0 Comments)

Alright so I tried the newest and greatest web browser called google chrome. Well I wouldnt say it was the greatest but its pretty good. It imported my firefox cache, and everything seemed to work fine. I opened up a few flash sites with streaming video and everything worked fine from that aspect. After I get a linux version I will give it more of a more in depth review later on.

Google Chrome

September 1st, 2008 | Posted by tonyscha in Technology - (0 Comments)

If you check out googles offical blog it says they are going to release an internet browser! Whats the mean, I dont think to many know until tomorrow after the offical release. So Look forward to newest of googles beta software. My personal opionion is that the google browser wont compete with firefox for a while, so unless it shocks me, and they make a fairly quick linux release, I wont be switching anytime soon. The offical website is www.google.com/chrome which at the time of this post is not available.

Facebook Instant Messanger

August 27th, 2008 | Posted by tonyscha in Technology - (0 Comments)

Now that facebook has Chat on there website, everyone has to log onto facebook to see who there friends are. Well if you want facebook chat on the desktop currently its not possiable without this pidgin plugin –¬† But of course you have to install pidgin first.

After using the plugin it seems to work most of the time, I had a few issue where it would crash Pidgin, and if you saved your password, and opened pidgin up again, you would get stuck into a open/crash loop. But now since I make it so I have to enter my password everytime, it seems to work fine, as long as facebook chat isnt down.

Hello (again)

So if you made it here and you are actually reading this you are really bored or you know me. If you check out some of the older post you might find some of my humor from the college days when I basicly just keep a journal for myself and I didnt care what I wrote. I decided to import them from my blogspot account for old time sakes. This website akschaefer.com is basicly for Kayla and myself ( Anthony ). It doesnt have a definitive purpsose so enjoy.
