TurboTax Please Insert A Disk 1 Install Problem
So I got my TurboTax 2005 Software today which I purchased from Amazon.Com I pop the CD in and get this message.
Please insert a disk 1 that contains the file: 32\bit\local\easystep\stepfinishexit.xml
No matter which CD-Rom drive I used it would not install. Turns Out I got a CD that only works with the Mac and not Windows. Lucky TurboTax is replacing the CD, glad I tried to install TurboTax now vs tax season.

Gretchen Wilson & Big & Rich Play Saint Paul Minnesota
If you ever get a chance to go to a Gretchen Wilson concert go by any means necessary. Next to Toby Keith, Gretchen Wilson has the all time greatest stage show. Her music is better than on the album and we even got to hear some rockin covers of Barracuda and Black Dog. Big & Rich played a good set but did alot of adlib and audience participation. Some may like this, others may prefer hearing live music that more closely sounds like the album. This has been a long debate among concert goers. For the money however you get to see Big & Rich, Cowboy Troy and Gretchen Wilson and other members of the Musik Mafia. All in all a great show but clearly Gretchen Wilson stole the show.

Myth & Quest Night ClubsIf you are looking to see live music in a night club setting you will be lucky if the band you want to see comes to the Quest Club or Myth Night Club in Minnesota. Much like First Ave these night clubs provide a live music venue that is between the arena and small bar size, perfect for lesser known or longer running bands. Quest Night Club is located in downtown Minneapolis and Myth Night Club just opened in Maplewood. Both are full functioning night clubs when live music is not playing.

Who Invented What?I've started a site called Who Invented that focuses on articles on who invented various things ranging from who invented the motorcycle to who invented electricity. Hopefully my who invented site will become a starting point to those researching things like who invented basketball or football or who invented the computer.

Car Stereo Adapter for iPodFor best results hooking your iPod up to an existing car stereo i recommend checking out the options in Cassette Car Stereo Adapters some are made specifically for iPod and others such as the Sony CPA-9C have been around for years. I've had excellent results with the Sony even though its not officially an iPod Cassette Adapter for car stereos.
Sony Playstation2 For Sale on eBay PS2I just listed my Sony Playstation 2 on eBay with all my games. I decided I might as well start off with the Xbox 360 rather than purchase any more games for the PS2. Someone will be getting a great deal on a PS2 bundle as I only had the best games.

USB External Hard Drive For Automatic BackupSo i'm a bit paranoid about my data and wanted a more automatic way of ensuring my web and business data is backed up. I hate tapes and my manual file copy & DVD Burning wasn't cutting it. I found a slick 160GB USB External Hard Drive from Western Digital on Amazon.Com that claims to have a one touch and automatic backup.
Installation of the USB External Hard Drive was easy, just drop the CD-Rom in and let it install the backup software. Then plug in the AC power and USB cable and put the feet on the drive and push the power button. My Windows XP computer instantly detected the external USB hard drive and when I pushed one other buttons I was prompted to setup a daily or weekly automatic backup. Easy as that.

Vince Flynn Consent To KillIf you are a Vince Flynn fan you'll be happy to know a new book from Vince Flynn is out on hardcover called "Consent To Kill". I immediately ordered it from Amazon.Com I'm not usually the hardcover book guy but for a Vince Flynn book its worth every penny.
Like other Vince Flynn books this follows the life and career of Mitch Rapp. The new book Consent To Kill has Mitch Rapp becoming the hunted, not only by an assasin but from buracratic leaders who would try and put a leash on Mitch Rapp. I'm only 1/2 way through Consent To Kill and i'm saying to myself that this may be the best Vince Flynn book yet. Consent To Kill is a novel in written in todays time and world circumstances as it relates to the war on terror. In my lifetime i've never uttered an "uh oh" out loud when reading a book but I did when reading the latest Vince Flynn book and my wife was like What? I didn't have time to explain I just had to keep reading Consent To Kill. Much thanks to Vince Flynn for putting out another stellar book.
