Wow, talk about neglecting my readers! Seems this always happens in the spring...I start of summer-related things, and somehow forget about this site. Consequently, I'm sure you are all less interested in keeping up with rblords during this peak time. Nevertheless, the ball rolls on!

I found myself a shack..and for those of you familiar with the neighborhoods of jolly ol' Saskatoon, it is located in the South-West corner of Sutherland. Thats right, I'm moving to the train yard. Nice big house, nice big shop in the back (that's the important part) and a fair size lot to boot! I'm really impressed with the lot sizes in Sutherland...you just don't find a 50'x145' many other places, unless you are willing to move into Montgomery. ANYHOW, possesion date is May31st so I've got another month yet. However, I'm letting you know this because there will probably be an inevitable downtime around then. Chances are, with having to get my high-speed link relocated, and moving in and such...the site could face up to a week of downtime. I hope you can find it within yourselves to forgive me...

Meanwhile I will sit here and think about the lake...which reminds me. PIKE LAKE 2K2 is just around the corner. Matter of a month, really. And now that I look, I didn't even put up Pike Lake 2K1 pictures! Hmmmm...perhaps I should get right on that. Either way, PIKE LAKE 2K2 promises to be reasonably more entertaining than a barrel of monkeys, and possibly AS entertaining as YC chugging a bottle of tequila. Sounds like we could have quite the crew this year...and if the weather holds up....well...lets just say I hope everyone makes it home ok :)

Beyond Pike Lake this year, I'm hoping to be spending most of my free time at the lake...either boating or just kicking it back in my hammock. This year I finally have my full 3 weeks of hollidays to burn up, and I fully intend to get rid of all 3 weeks between June 1st and September 1st. Can you blame me? I'd like to get some good fishin' done this year too...maybe I can catch one of nature's finest creations...the 2-headed Saskatchewan wonder-fish. Only available in the fine, clean lakes of Saskatchewan! (see picture to the left). Hey, time for some pictures...these all revolve around the beautiful seasons of Saskatchewan (yea thats where I live)...

Ok - enough updating for now. Catch y'all later....

Ha! I'm back! Miss me?

The snow is melting, the temperature is rising, and the bears are decending from the nearby mountains surrounding my quaint hometown in search of food. Lucky for them the gophers are already popping out of their holes. What does this all mean? Thats right, an increase in local gas prices. And the cycle continues...(chart below does not graph hibernation patterns or mean gopher population - but it IS related)

I believe I mentioned having some problems with the server and my internet service awhile back...seems the site has been putting out a steady 3.9GB/day for at least the past few months. At first I thought RBlords had gained immense popularity as it lay dorment in the corner of my spare bedroom on top of the phone book I'm using for a case. However, it seems internet search bots have been downloading every video I've ever posted on this site (about 800megs worth)...and there were about 8 of them downloading these videos at any given time. Needless to say the videos have temporarily been taken offline until I can find away around this little problem. RBlords lives...and stronger than ever.

The pieces for the new RBlords server will be arriving shortly...in fact some of them are already here. Hopefully once put together we will have a solid running system that I will no longer have to maintain - just shove into the corner and forget about it. Basically what I do now, except its going to work.

I received a gas bill today for $271. Convinced that it was a mistake, I phoned the toll-free number and the explained to me that they just took a reading, and that the last reading taken was in September. I asked them why they hadn't taken one in so long and their response was "There are 2 large dogs in the backyard". Thats funny, I haven't seen any? Anyhow the bottom line is that I have to pay this stupid-ass bill!

(I'm not sure who makes the T-Shirt on the left - so don't ask!)

Ever think of all the wild things you got caught doing in highschool? Chances are they don't top this kid. Something tells me this kid didn't mind taking the 3 day suspension... can't help but wonder whether or not the girl involved got a notice too :)

If you have time (and if you haven't already seen this), you MUST watch this flash video of Romeo and Juliet done in L33T speak. The soundtrack is absolutely amazing, and the artistry...well...reminds me of something JayB would have drawn.

I've got most to post...mostly videos though, so I'll have to get this bandwidth issue sorted out, then you'll be in for a special, special surprise! In the meantime, I'll leave you with a wise celebrity quote to think about:

"I have always hated that damn James Bond. I'd like to kill him."

Sorry for the lack of updates everyone. but I'm sorta in the midst of a few issues right now....for one, I'm trying to piece together a more reliable server to replace this old clunker which is literally running without a case, sitting on top of a phone book right now. I'm also hoping to be moving within the next month or so, so service will be interrupted at that point.

Either way I'll keep you posted, but don't expect many new updates until a month or so down the road....

Sorry for the downtime folks, the motherboard in our server finally bit the dust. Thanks to a donation from Blue4130 we are up and running again until I can built a newer, better server.

We went through an ip change, so some things might still be screwy...let me know if you see something that doesn't look right.

Ok everybody...I have an important announcement to make to listen up! Apparently there have been difficulties lately in the release of the upcoming Mr. Show movie "Run, Ronnie, Run". I can not explain how incredibly important it is that this movie be released! Anyhow, please show your support by reading this page and making your voice heard.

Well...I've been meaning to post an update for almost a week now, but tonight I decided to clean up the house - and this is my break. Ok, so I haven't really started yet - I'll get to it. Anyways, to start things off I hope everyone had a great valentine's day filled with love, or at least a big juicy steak. If you can't have one, the other will do :).

I'm not going to even bother covering the two gold medals we rightfully obtained this past weekend. I'm sure you've all heard enough about it that I really couldn't offer anything more. Awesome...just awesome. I heard somebody mention today over lunch that the Canada-US game on Sunday scored as the most-watched and listened-to broadcast on Canadian TV/Radio ever. Apparently almost a third of our population was watching or listening to that game in one form or another - thats a pretty big deal. Oh well I said I wasn't going to talk about this so away I go...

Time to call Uncle Jed and your sixteen cousins over for the summer....the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation has declared a Provincial Gopher Derby. Thats right...for a minimal entry fee of only $20 you can get out your guns, bow&arrows, traps or poisons and start a' killin. The 10 people with the most (frozen) gopher tails by June 23rd win. Dang, and just when I went and retired my old trusty throwin' rock!

Anyhow, the point of this story: Watch out for gun-weilding hillbillies this summer who may mistake your passing car as a huge mother-gopher.

I must say, I had quite the response to my love story link which I posted for valentine's day. Apparrently some readers were very disturbed by the content within the story. All I have to say is - if you could not see the love in that beautiful story then you are indeed a very evil and cruel person. Especially you Brian.

Now....news goes on. soul_d emailed me the other day (along with a flock of other people) with a link which he felt must absolutely be spread around the world. He finds it imperitive that everyone get a chance to read about the science set out for you on this site. Apparently the guy who wrote the page will pay $1000 to the first person who will disprove his theories of existance....check it out, and try not to go nuts reading the huge oversized fonts.

Blue4130 emailed me a video today which I simply couldn't hold back from showing you all. I think that soul_d will get a kick out of it especially. Click Here to download the video - its 13 megs but well worth it. I'd love to give you a hint as to what it is, but it would spoil the fun. Don't worry, its nothing dirty. However, Blue4130 DID send me some other content that WAS dirty, and I think I'll hold back from posting it at this time...

Also, here's another neat link for ya - a javascript clock. There's some pretty nifty math programming in there if you look at the code (if your into that sorta thing).

Well...I guess thats all I have for now. Good day, eh? And don't get caught with your pants down!

Greetings, fellow readers. We have gone without contact for some time, and for that I am truley sorry. In the spirit of Valentine's Day, I would like to offer you a gift. Please click here to see a beautiful love story unfold before you. Don't worry, it's fairly short.

The picture on the left is a valentine's day card that you can print out and give to your friends. This image was prepared by our good friends at TheOnion.com...the hippest place for un-biased news on the internet.

I have a special link for everybody today...one that shows how love is not solely limited to human beings, or even living things for that matter; but to pong as well. I think Razor should like this link especially...so have a peek

How about a Flash Game where the goal is to hide the incriminating evidence in your bedroom before your parents make it up the stairs?

Here's an interesting internet clock that somebody spent too much time on.

Hmmm.. I suppose thats enough pointless content for now...does anyone even click on the links I post anymore?? Anyhow, I know I mentioned that I was in the middle of overhauling the site, but I've been a little distracted lately so it is currently on hold - big surprise. So things will have to stay as they are for now.

Spring is around the corner...and I'm already pumped up for a great summer...this year I actually get my full 3 weeks of holliday time so I will make sure to spend all of it at the lake. Pike Lake 2002 should be a blast as long as the weather holds out, and I expect to see everyone out there who lives in the general area...which reminds me, I never did post pictures from last year's Pike Lake trip. Hmph. Well I'll just add that to the list I suppose. Now where was I? Oh yes, spring. And you know what that means? Yes, thats right, I am having a huge blowout sale on cars this spring with LOW LOW prices, perhaps I will have the first online rblords auction ever...guess we'll see.

Other than that, not much new with me (it's been awhile since I last posted something about myself - I just seem to be spitting out mindless dribble and distracting content to keep you occupied). My slut cat is pregnant, so if anyone wants free kittens in the next week or so, you've got my email address. For the longest time I just kept telling myself that she was getting fat...then Dog Pound was like "Dude you have to get your cat fixed so she doesn't get preggers" and I'm all like "WHAT?" and he was like "Dude."

Thats it for today....uhhh, oh yeah...a celebrity quote:
"Have you seen Tom Jones? He's so cool." - Brad Pitt
