Sorry for the blackout

Things have been pretty crazy around here. I somehow managed to download a virus on my laptop that made it pretty much impossible for it to do anything. Trying to write up posts on my phone has proven to be very frustrating so I've just been neglecting the blog. I've also been ridiculously busy. I've lost 45 pounds since I started training mma/jiu-jitsu. I didn't really consider myself fat to begin with (5'11" 220) but I was getting there. Training for 2-4 hours a day 4-5 days a week, holding down a real job and being a dad tends to cut the schedule down to pretty much nothing. I've still got some posts in the works and now that my laptop is fixed I should be able to find more time to get them written up. Thanks for reading. If you need to get in touch with me you can email me at artyboy at gmail dot com.

I was wondering what you thought of earthships? have you done any looking into them?
I have wanted to build an earthship for years now but the cost to build one is so high I cant do it.
I went to the first earthship academy class it was pretty amazing. I learned so much. I just found this school that does the same thing and costs half as much and covers much more then the Earthship biotecture classes did.
Here is a clip from their website.
They seem to have a good thing going.
Just thought I would share.
Also if you have questions about earthships I can build one from the ground up now. I just do not have the money to do it on my own.

I used to read this blog all the time. Its a shame you've given up on it. Either way I'm deleting it from my favorites now. Good luck with it if you ever return.

Why not switch to Linux? Ubuntu 11 is very user friendly, and even has a Windows based installer so that you can try it out without making a real commitment.
