Windows 7: What Did YOU Get for Christmas?

Lens Pirate quote: Not to be a downer but.... This year I learned my wife of 20 years has terminal cancer. I always planned on her out living me. The doctor told us December 14th.

I write this as my Christmas present to all of you. Consider it a gift of hard won wisdom.

Nothing you worry about now matters. Your life should revolve 100 percent around those people that you love. In the end when you take stock of your life, when forced by circumstance to understand what it means to loose Joy, you will know then the value of love.

You will also know shame and resentment of time wasted, of poor behavior, of chances lost to bring joy to your loved ones. Start this instant to fix that.

Step away from your PC. Put down the beer. Make someone smile. Ease someones suffering.

Have sex. Lots of it. The more you have the more you want. It makes you a better person.

Its ok to deny yourself anything to further a goal, except feelings. Never deny how you feel. Every time you do you die a little.

Understand right at this very instance that the life you have been waiting to start, the joy you have put off is happening right now. Get your head into the moment. Feel the air on your skin. Notice everything.

This is it folks, there is no promise that it will ever get better.


To begin with I am sorry for the horrific news!

You can count your 20 years of blessings as that is surely a wonderful gift that you had each and every day and for the time you still have together. Often we must lose something in order to see the true value of what we have. My Aunt has terminal cancer and I found that out and that my niece had passed away at the same time on my birthday. Granted it is not the same as a wife but they are still my family. I look back on the wonderful times we had and they are still there with me in my heart. Nothing can take that away!

I got a very nice M&S jumper off my older sister.
Also my pc seems to have stopped BSODing in games.
It's nothing I've done but it seems to have just stopped.
I figure it's my pcs way of thanks for bringing it into the world

hmmm--since I was stuffing socks I got some chili flavored dark choco Lindt Brand and also a Pistachio infused one.
They got me some cookies and candies and a Yoda Bobblehead. I also received some cash to buy some biking clothes. And a gift cert from my employers to spend at the bike shop.

So not a lot to open beacuase they all know I tend to get what I want throughout the year. I got lots of presents for the family to open though.

So my stuff throughout the year: nice weather station for back yard, headphones, blu ray drive, Hannsg monitor, esternal 1.5 TB HD, I'm sure there's way more--lol

And just moments ago, after playing around with H.264 raw footage and mp4 inside of Sony Vegas Pro 9.0B, I decided to download the 9.0C upgrade to fix the a/v synch issues...and immediately ordered up a Contour HD 720P helmet cam so I can shoot in what I'll call near HD while mountain biking the xc trails around here. LOL--this makes 3 helmet cam systems now over the last 6 years or so.


ohhhh--thanks 7forums--nice XMAS present--I just received a "promotion".

No matter how young or old you are...Legos are so darn addictive
2nd that, i feel a bit strange being 18, and still being fascinated with Lego, love the stuff!

For Xmas, i got an iPod touch, and free airplane tickets to the Philippines, and paid for accommodation, for a month!
