Recovering Lost GarageBand Files

So I was recording MetroBuzz Episode 123 on Monday night when disaster struck.  Just as John & I were starting our sign-offs, GarageBand completely quit on me!  We had 1:20 minutes of audio recorded and it was all gone.  I was so upset.  Just as I had resigned myself to listening through John’s side of […]

Current Addiction: Viggle!

 Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish.

“Every once in a while a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything.” There has got to be something to be said about the fact that for the past few hours, 98% of my Facebook, Twitter, and Google News feeds have been all about the death of Steve Jobs.  When I first read the news, […]

Not only did I notice what the latest iPhone software is, but naturally I had to be super lamo and screen cap it to share.  #NeedsALife Tweet

Memorial Day Weekend 2011

Hello!  Hope all of my American friends had a fantastic Memorial Day weekend.  I really needed the three day weekend.  Since we got back from our honeymoon, it has been freaking crazy at work.  The first week back, I worked 9 hour days with no lunch to catch up and the week after that, we […]

Legally CHG, yo

Jay & I got a pleasant surprise last night when we got home from Mexico to find that our official State of New York Marriage License had arrived already!  I brought it down to the Social Security Administration office this morning and changed my name officially!  Instead of “Colleen H. McAllister,” I am now legally […]
