It’s mid April already?

Well its been quite a while since I posted anything here, so I figured it’s time to post a little update. As usual, I’ve been pretty busy with work and such. This last weekend was more eventful than most.

Friday Mr. Nolan decided to grace whitewater with his presence. After minor begging, i was persuaded to go out for a bit and get jumped on by Mr Snieg. Does anyone really know why Snieg is a jumper? I think its somehow related to the genetics of the Monguin gene.

Saturday start out with a great nights sleep, followed up by 2 naps! (Can’t go wrong there). That evening I ventured to Elkhorn where Paul, Michelle, Dohr and myself went out to dinner at Popeye’s in Lake Geneva. It was my first time there, very tasty. After dinner we tormented Sadie with the woot screaming monkey!

Today I decided to invest in a Wireless Cell Phone Extender, I’m curious to see if it actually works. If it doesn’t, at least there is a 30 day guarantee. I also decided to purchase an I-Pass, I’ve had enough of the Illinois tolls!

Well, thats about it for my excitement. Until next time, keep your stick on the ice!

PS. Does anyone know what that phrase is from? 🙂

Random Crap!

My random crap came today. Inside I was graced with the following items:

  • 1 – Screaming Flying Monkey w/Woot Cape
  • 1 – Targus Travel bag
  • 1 – Texas Holdem Electronic Game
  • 1 – Barbie Phone

Don’t believe me? See for yourself:

3 Craps!

Finally, after years (literally) of attempting to get a bag of crap, I got 3! It just took a tricky April Fool’s Day woot!

PS: It really only cost $6, there was a coupon code.

T-Mobile Caller ID

Ever wondered how to get your name to show up when you call a land line from your cell phone? Apparently, you can just give T-Mobile Customer Care a call and they can set the text which appears individually for each line. There is about a 24 hour processing time for the change to take place, but nonetheless, its a pointless cool feature. So, hopefully in 24 hours my name is no longer "Cell Phone WI".

Winter is Here

Today, the current temperates around Wisconsin are the same (or colder) than areas of Alaska, is it just me, or does that sound a little nuts? It’s been a busy past month with things happening at work at UW-Whitewater and also with Modevia. We finally go the new Modevia website launched – – check it out! The new support center is hopefully right around the corner as well!

I also recently aquired a new domain name which I have moved my personal email address – aaron at axelsen dot us. Hopefully in the new future, i’ll also launch a website there as well. Check back in the future for updates!

That’s all for now, stay warm!

Happy Turkey Day!

So apparently everyone on the roads yesterday thought that we were in Germany.  I made the 240 mile trip home in 2 hours and 45 minutes, reaching a top speed of about 100mph.  And to top it all off, I somehow managed to average 40mpg.  Gotta love the diesels!

Anyways, I hope everyone has a great thanksgiving!
