Blog - Music
Sunday, 03 February 2013 21:02

I kept coming up empty after an exhaustive search for the track listing of a great sound track. I therefore took my own initiative to go through the entire track to ID each song the best I could. Hopefully this will get everyone out there in the right direction. Please comment if there are any discrepancies, which may definitely be the case, so I can make the necessary corrections. Thanks!

The Irony of Stupidity
Blog - Blog
Thursday, 06 September 2012 21:19

The irony of stupidity is amusing because it's based upon the individual's perception. How can one perceive one's own stupidity if one is not capable of it?

The sad truth of it all is that some people are too stupid to fully comprehend their own stupidity. Rather, they reject everyone's premise and attempt to convince themselves that everyone's judgement must be incorrect. Sometimes the stupid individual defaults to the fact that no one can judge them so they dismiss all snide remarks that are completely valid.

It truly is a sad state...

I'm sorry I went against my promise. I never realized how busy it would get while in training. I thought things would get more smooth as the days went by but I was more than wrong, I was foolish. The Internet has been abysmal especially when everyone is being punished and locked down. This means that the bandwidth is sapped and I can't even attempt to load my templates to write.

It's been a while since I've blogged but hopefully this while be a treat for everyone. The song below is one of my favorites that I jam to frequently. I hope it lifts anyone's spirit as it has mine.

Sorry all. The attempts to post something the other day was severely thwarted by the inevitable. There was training that lasted most of the evening and I had to go to sleep immediately because of an early wake up the next morning. Nevertheless, check out the article below for the Adobe Flash offline download.

The old article I wrote with the Adobe Flash links are expired. Adobe decided to change the URL so the new links are found below. The current version as of July 11, 2012 is


32 Bit

32 bit Flash Player for ActiveX (Internet Explorer)

32 bit Flash Player Plug-in (All other browsers)


64 Bit

64 bit Flash Player for ActiveX (Internet Explorer)

As we all know Adobe keeps updating their Flash Player and have made it difficult to download the latest full offline version. However, version 11.4.402.287 is easily found below! Yay!
Missing In Action 2

So I've definitely been away from my blog for far too long. This is the longest duration since my last post and I sincerely apologize for my absence. I've started a new life and I'm in my second chapter right now. I'm slowly finding more time to myself so I should be able to generate more posts.

In my new life I'm able to perform my best without worrying about the little things, I have the best support possible, and everyone understands the path that I've taken.

There's so many things for me to start blogging about that I'm unsure where I should start. I'll figure something out for tomorrow evening despite the odds of having spare time. I promise to my visitors and to myself there will be something on these pages.


*Special thanks to my Lord, my family, and my friends*

200-Year Calendar
Blog - Other
Friday, 24 February 2012 18:19

You never know when you only need to reference something but don't have your computer on. I came across a calendar that is a 200 year calendar which expires on 2050.

I scanned the calendar but realized that the original copy is black with white text. Maybe one day I'll recreate the calendar to make it printer-friendly.


200 Year Calendar


It only takes three steps to use the calendar!


1. Find the column of the year

2. Trace down the column and intersect with the month

3. The letter listed will be the referenced monthly calendar that will be observed

NOTE: There are Leap Years that are designated with an asterisk.



Tactical Pens and TSA
Blog - Other
Wednesday, 08 February 2012 17:24

As of today there are a handful of tactical pens that range from menacing to subtle appearances. There are some that have twist bodies, twist caps, or retractable. I personally prefer retractable because there are no worries of losing a cap and it requires one-hand operation. Just recently I noticed that my favorite flashlight company Surefire made a tactical pen.

Tactical pens are subject to criticism because of their intended nature. Why own a large "scary" looking pen with the company's brand plastered on it? It only lets others know your situation. Another criticism is that the tactical pens are not cheap ranging from $25 to $130. Sadly, there's not many options for ink color and point size either.

I myself have considered the sure fire EWP-02 because it is light-weight, averaged size, less-menacing, retractable, robust, and not overly expensive for a quality pen from a quality company. It's also an attractive looking writing instrument. However, the options for using an extra fine point is pending Surefire's customer support response. Unfortunately, I foresee that the smaller pen tip will rattle when writing because of the large pen hole used for medium point cartridges.

It certainly is a beautiful piece but the cost simply does not justify the purchase of the pen especially since the fear of losing it outweights the cost of a regular aluminum pen and the TSA is subject to confiscate the item. It's definitely something to consider especially if the original idea was to protect yourself on/off the plane where you can't carry any other defensive tool.



Workforce Stories

When is a pen not just a pen? The answer is when it doubles as a potential weapon.

A TSO at Palm Beach International (Fla.) was working the X-ray machine when he came across an anomaly on the screen and called for a search of a passenger’s backpack. Inside, the responding Officer discovered a tactical pen, used commonly by law enforcement as a defense tool with its sharp aluminum-based point on one end and blunt portion on the other.

A Supervisory TSO confirmed that item was a prohibited item. The police responded and issued the passenger a criminal summons to appear in court – under the state statute – for carrying a concealed weapon. He was cleared for travel and there were no flight delays.

Best Fine Point Pen

Saturday, 04 February 2012 16:20

I've been doing research on tactical pens and pens in general for several months now. I feel I've slowly succumb to the intriguing complexity of pens. They vary in shape, size, weight, style, point size, and more. Which to choose?

I dislike it when a pen breaks or is lost before I've had a chance to use at least 75% of the ink. Some pens that I've found online are expensive, they write extremely well, and are very robust. However, let's face it, pens are easily lost on a regular basis and I'd be darned if I lost a $100 pen or had it stolen.

I've since found the best pen for my situation. The Pilot Better Retractable is a remarkable pen for my needs. I've outlined the pros and cons below.

Pilot Better Retractable


  • Metal pocket clip that does not deform from average use.
  • Ink flow is extremely smooth and allows fast writing with less cramping.
  • Body diameter is the average pen size which suits most people.
  • Has greater value because it's slightly more expensive than other expensive "subpar" pens.
  • Retractable clicking mechanism is smooth and soft however maybe too soft for most people.
  • Retractable for quick deployment and professional one-handed use. No caps to lose.
  • The pen is capable of writing extremely small font which allows for more text on page.


  • Plastic body does not handle above average abuse. I'd prefer aluminum for heavy duty uses.
  • The attachment of the metal clip to the body of the pen is plastic which may cause the clip to break off anyway. The clip mount should be metal just like the clip.
  • There is no option for extra fine or ultra fine. Something around .30mm would be excellent.
  • Slightly more expensive even when ordering it through local vendors.
  • Not easily found in stores which must be ordered.



I let two friends have an extra pen and they both loved it. They've been using it on a daily basis ever since. One even wanted to know where to buy it because he is left-handed and the pen wrote smoothly while not smearing.

The Pilot Better Retractable pen will be a long time favorite of mine. I'm so happy that they sell them in boxes of 12. The pen rates above average in every category especially the ones that I require.
