Ahmnodt Heare for President

Ahmnodt Heare For America… Ahmnodt Heare For You.

Out of the Loop

I am ashamed to admit this, but I did not realize that President Obama was addressing the nation last night.  I would have blogged my comments in real time as well as written why my plan would have been better.

I had an incredibly bust day today.  What didn’t help was a drunk guy knocking on my door at 2:30AM looking for his wife.  The dog wouldn’t stop barking at him.  He wouldn’t leave.  He stumbled through my apartment and knocked stuff off of tables and the counter.  He broke my “Hello Kitty” cookie jar.  The police came and soon took him away.

It took me a while to fall back to sleep.  This was a problem because I had to get up earlier than normal and my energy bars were in the cookie jar.  The dog’s inability to calm down and constant panting in my ear didn’t help matters.

Two clients called me and told me they needed their projects done by the end of the day.  One project was one that was originally due in two weeks.  The other was for a regular client’s Spring 2012 campaign which wasn’t due until December.  These projects were on top of the other projects due this week including a back-to-school campaign for a local chain of lingerie stores,

I missed President Obama’s address as well as Speaker John Boehner’s reply.  From watching the morning talk shows, it looks like I didn’t miss anything.  America missed an opportunity to not be in this fiscal mess to begin with electing somebody besides me in 2008.  This is why I need to be elected in 2012.

Double Blog Duty

For some people, this blog is not enough for their daily Ahmnodt fix.  I have tried to convince them to seep professional help, but to no avail.  After much fretting in my mind, I have finally caved in.  For the entire month of May, (Sundays excluded) I will also be blogging at my other blog, Formulated Randomness.  The theme for the month of May will be the A-Z of my life.

I had been spending the last week dog-sitting for a client up in the Catskills.  Murray got to play with some other dogs.  It was a lot more work than I thought as the other dogs all had a ton of energy.  As President, I would put those dogs (and other dogs with a lot of energy) on a treadmill attached to a turbine.  This will lessen our dependence on foreign oil.

I also picked up an impromptu client while picking up lunch at a local deli.  I only picked it up because the project was supposed to be easy and be only one day.  I have been very busy and am not only getting a chance to unwind as my usual client has returned.

I’m back home and planning for tomorrow night’s podcast.  It will be about current events as well as campaign updates.

Timeline for Disaster

My apologies for anybody who tried to listen to my show last night.  It has been rescheduled for tonight at 8:00PM Eastern.  Please use this link for the show and not the link on the original blogpost about the show as this is a new link specifically for tonight.

Below is the timeline for the events that transpired last night which caused me to start last night’s show very late and end it very early.  A quick background to the events before the timeline:  I was working on a marketing campaign for a local bed-and-breakfast trailer park.  It wasn’t called that until I came up with the idea.  The trailer park only has five trailers (plus the owner’s trailer).  The trailers are rentals near the state park and have boat access to the lake.  I am also in the process of moving my office to my bedroom and converting the office to a bedroom for my daughter and her mother.

  • 6:00 PM – Rotated the bed and moved dressers in my bedroom to make room for desk.  No problems.
  • 6:15 PM – Call from a client who wanted to change meeting day from Thursday to Friday.  Also changed presentation day from the 26th to the 24th at 10:00 AM.  It’s workable.
  • 6:35 PM – Moved desk from office to bedroom.  I had no problem getting the desk in but I now have little room for maneuvering between the desk and the bed.
  • 6:50 PM – Moved laptop from office to bedroom – Now the fun starts!  I did not unplug the Bluetooth adapter or the MagicJack from the laptop.  I unplugged the power cord from the wall but not the computer.  I had no problem getting the laptop to the bedroom, but I had a huge problem with the power cord.  I went to grab the power cord to plug the computer in, but the cord somehow got tangled with the MagicJack. The MagicJack popped out of the USB port and fell to the ground.
  • 6:55 PM – Plugged the MagicJack to the computer and promptly got a “Broken Storage Error” message.  The MagicJack home page soon popped up. I was able to navigate to the “Technical Issues” page.
  • 7:10 PM – After trying everything in the FAQ, I went into “live chat” with a technician.
  • 7:15 PM – I get an e-mail from the trailer park owner.  He wants me to call him immediately.  The MagicJack was still being worked on so I tried to call him on my cell phone.  The cell phone was dead and had to be recharged.
  • 7:20 PM – I was about to send an e-mail to the client explaining why I couldn’t call when the technician said I had to close all windows.  I figured that the sooner the phone was fixed, the sooner I could call the client back so I closed the window.  The tech guy and I tried several things to get the Magic Jack to work, but the computer wouldn’t recognize the hard drive in the MagicJack.
  • 7:45 PM – I was transfered to a more experienced technician, one who is reserved for the most difficult problems.  We try a few more things, but nothing seemed to be working.
  • 8:00 PM – SHOWTIME! Only problems were I couldn’t call into my show or send a message that the show was going to be delayed.  (I still had to have all other windows not associated with the MagicJack closed.)
  • 8:10 PM – MagicJack is fixed.  I had to call the trailer park client.  He wanted to change his presentation from the 23rd to the 24th at 10:00AM.  I told him i was doing another presentation at that time.  After some maneuvering, we finally agreed to meet on Friday the 26th at 5:30AM at Newark Liberty Airport.  he has a 7:30 Flight and will be gone for two weeks and wants to get this finished before he leaves.
  • 8:25 PM – I finally got to setup and start the radio show.  I haphazardly sent notifications of the show.  After about 10 minutes into the show, I decided that I would be better off waiting until Wednesday night (tonight) to do the show.
  • 8:35 PM – Ended the show, scheduled the show for tonight, and sent out more timely notifications.

I would highly recommend MagicJack to anybody who wants to save money.  With proper care (Not wrapping a power cord around it and having it hit the ground), it works very well and the sound quality is pretty good.)  You can hear the quality tonight at 8:00PM Eastern.

I would like to wish my beautiful daughter Patricia a very happy 7th birthday today.  Daddy loves you!
