Prepped To Travel?

Rumor has it I leave for Nebraska in an hour, the question is, do I have everything? Everyone knows that people forget stuff on trips like this. Most of the time it’s not something major, but sometimes, it can be a pain. Take for example my most recent trip to Camp Sham. On that trip the average temp outside was something like 30 degrees, and I had of course forgotten to pack a single sweatshirt. This only resulted in me spending 30 of the 40 dollars I had with me that weekend on a new shirt. Of course, that’s neither here nor there when it comes to what I bring to Nebraska.

Unlike most people, I pack my house when I leave to go anywhere. That’s the reason that a good chunk of the time I have just about everything in my car. Whether it be a good book, video game, camera, music, computer, bedding, towel… You name it, I have it. The problem comes in when I have to limit what I bring someplace. Normally this limit is for my own good: IE: don’t bring more than you could remember to bring back.

So let’s run down the list of what I have so far for this trip:

Clothes are covered. I have the 4 main things and that’s all I need. I also have my razor and all that fun stuff. I didn’t bring sunday clothes, but I don’t really have any, so that’s ok as well.
Cash… I should probably stop by the bank for I spent all of it last night at the drive-in. (By the way… Spider Man 2… AMAZINGLY DONE. I LOVED IT. The sequel is better than the original. May I mention that I may have to stop being Batman and move on to a new creature (spider). It should be mentioned that they also held on tightly (for the most part) to the comic book story line… Amazing yet again.
Computer… The laptop is ready to go. The question here is do I have the data I want, and if I don’t have it, can I get it. IE: do I have all the websites that I want to work on either on my server or on my Jump Drive. Are there any word documents I want to bring with?
Paperwork: I have paperwork with me to look at. yay.
Gamecube: 10 games, 4 controllers, 5 memory cards.
Gameboy: Cables, 12 Games.
Camera: Charged?
DVD’s 5+4
CD’s? Need to burn some.So what am I forgetting that seems important for this trip. I normally bring pictures of Amber and Me, but there haven’t been to many taken that weren’t digital between Lori’s wedding and now, so I don’t really have any to bring. The scanner is down there, so I won’t bring that. Hmmm. Tv? Should I bring a TV?

Ok, enough jibber jabber. Spider Man 2 is amazing. Did I mention that yet? Go see it. It’s worth the money, especially if you go see it at the Drive-in for a mere 7 dollars (that’s less than Carmike at the same time).

In case you hadn’t noticed: JR Corps moved. I don’t know if I already wrote about that or not, but I thought in case I didn’t that I would write about it again. I should find my Ultima Online CD.

Amy and Family were on during the Twins game last night. I hope to post a streaming video when I get back. Yes, I did just say streaming.

Speaking of which, how would you handle protecting yourself from getting overbilled for a system you don’t have a good way to measure. It turns out we are getting billed for the 95% bandwidth usage mark. So to make the long story short, a judge rings in every 5 minutes with our average bandwidth for that period. They do this for a whole month. Then the top 5% of judges get thrown out, and I get billed for the 94.999% position judge. Kind of complicated but you can look it up online if you want. Needless to say, without knowing where your bandwidth is going to be during the month, there’s no way to know if you will break it. The only thing you can do, is put a bandwidth cap on something like the webserver. I’m not sure that’s worthwhile though. Is limiting the bandwith on the webserver really worth while. Think about it….

I dont know what I’m going to do.

Shattered Cube needs to update. I thought I would mention that.

Well, I best burn those music CD’s if I don’t want to be listening to eagles the whole way.
