so, I'm FINALLY moving to San Diego. yay! :
after driving down there and home to work at sea world all summer when doing Lighting and Stage I was already sick of the drive, and now that i have been working with Electronic services I am even more sick of it. working 4 8 hour shifts a week means i am driving 720 miles a week, and spending over 11 hours on the road every week, not to mention the 800$ i spend in gas.
you may have noticed how for the last 2 months i am basically never really online, well it's because i have been waking up between 2:45 & 3:00am and not getting home till 5pm, if not later. by the time i get home and do everything i need to do and eat dinner it's basically time for me to go to bed.
so yeah, now I'm in the possess of moving while still working so i still won't be online much, heck I'll be online less. but at least in a couple of week i will be living in San Diego and get a huge chunk of my life back.
I'm moving to a rather nice apartment in Pacific beach, about 5 miles for the park and a little over a mile from the beach, which makes this orca very happy, even if he's going to be a poor orca XD

>.> ok I just realized the other day that it's like 7 days to my birthday. :
how the hell did it get this close to the 14th without me even realizing it?
good thing is I found out I'm not working at Sea World that day, so I can go down there and spend the entire day as a guest at the park, which will be nice ^.^

: Meeting Argon
Originally uploaded by FrostyOrca
Well I got to meet a sea lion today at work. was actually really good, and I hope I get to work SLO this summer, cause I can see myself really enjoying working around the seals, sea lions and otters. The sea lion I'm hugging is Argon if you were wondering.

ok, well I'm moving my gallery to Flickr, I had used DA for a LONG time now, but I like how flicker lets me do albums, and some of the other features. :
I'm also uploading a lot more than just orca photography to it. so if anyone usualy watched my DA or is just curious about my photography, please stop by my Flickr page at http://www.flickr.com/photos/frostyorca/
oh, and please, feel free to comment on things, if you have a Yahoo screen name you can log into flickr. thats the one thing I miss about DA is the feedback I got on my photos, but oh well, there are some downsides to everything ^.^

I love this pic, taken upstairs where they were doing the official FC photo shoot.
we moved (we as in myself and one other) the piano onto the drop so we could do photos with the cats.
I really love it because it dose remind me a little of the play "Cats"

Compuer Hard Drive prices
so, I need a new OS hard drive really really badly. I have been using an OLD drive for almost a year now, and its a DMA100 and slow as shit, and literally slowing down my entire system. :
so I'm going to bet a new WD Raptor drive. this one:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16822136011
Newegg's price is $174.99 and shipping is only like $6 - $7
sometimes newegg has good prices, sometimes now. so like, anyone know of someplace that has them for significantly less?
oh, and newegg offers an extended warrant on the drive, where they will completely replace it if anything happens, one year is $29.99 and 2 years is $39.99
so... yeah, I need -need- this before FC, but I need to be careful not to brake the bank.
5th October 2007
well I'm going to keep this short because its 4:46am and i have to be at work at 10 am :
my website http://FrostyOrca.com
is now running on my new server. *dances*
for a long time I have been wanting to give it a dedicated machine to run on, and now I have. so the new home for the "White Orca Web" is my web server ORCA1
anyways, I'll post more later when I can tell the difference between my space bar and the enter key

Brought to you by NardVille PS: Just as a community service I'm Pointing out this journal warning of bad business practices by the furry company, FurryGear
I cant believe this first one. I haven't seen anyone else with this quiz out there, did'nt even know furry was one of the possible outcomes :
I also think this one is rather cool, as i think its actualy kind of funny how a lot of it isent all that far off x_x

ok, so yeah, a LOT of these happen to kind of be accurate, which in a lot of ways is creepy, but then again, it probably has to do with the fact that I'm painfully honest with these kinds of things.

refusal of business
I'm good and pissed off over this. and i mean PISSED OFF :
At Califur this year I made an order with Furrygear to have a new tag made for my collar. Furrygear dose custom printing though a process called Die sublimation. It lets them print on several materials including aluminum and plastic. They are the only furry company that does it, and the only one who will do little one off things like this.
Anyways, the company is owned and run by a single person kaecyphet Some of you might already know this. But Kae and I dated, and were together for a while before things went to shit.
At Califur he was talking to me and stuff, and I flat out asked him if he was willing to do business with me regardless of what happened in out past. He said yes, so I placed the order AND paid him
like 2 weeks after the con I e-mailed him asking if everything was ok with the order and got an excuse that "they" were recovering from a large order that was made for Califur, and that it would probably be done in 2 weeks or so...
WELL after 4 weeks I E-Mailed him asking him how the order was going ok, and if he had my shipping address on file. I got a reply back asking for my address which I gave him. So then a while after that a letter shows up at my house addressed to me, and in it was a blank piece of paper folded with the money I paid for the order. Not a word was said about it.
So I have to say that I would not recommend furrygear to anyone, NOT for personal reasons with Kae, BUT for the business practices. The lack of communications, and the refusal of business because of personal issues. If this person is going to run a business he needs to run it like a business. And not take orders from people unless he plans of filling them.
So if you do decide on doing business with him, be careful as you may not ever get what you ordered, and even if you do, it might be months and months late.

2007 Fur-B-Q photos
well Saturday the 23d was the annual SoCal Fur-B-q. I had a great time as i do every year. Got there at about 9 in the morning and didn't leave till 9:30pm (the park closes at 9PM. :
as always my camera was with me and i took a fair amount of photos. a good amount of them turned out well, though i had more photos that didn't turn out than normal, but that was do to some rather annoying conditions that were really throwing the camera's sensors off. i took most of the photos in aperture priority mode.
if anyone would like to see them i have uploaded them to my Flickr account in the SoCal furry album. the album also includes photos from Califur0.3
my flicker page can be found at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/frostyorca/
and the SoCal furry album is at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/frostyorca/sets/72157600502784441/
22nd June 2007
Some of you might already know this, but if not here is a little science fact. :
Orcas have no external ears, they have an ear drum like us, but there is no external opening to the ear.
So why this post...well this orca has an ear infection. And I though it was kind of comical that it’s in my inner ear that is infected. So in a way I have an ear infection appropriate for an orca :P I'm on antibiotics now, and it should be cleared up in about a week. So until then I guess I won’t be sleeping on my left side. Oh, and I'm thankful that it is an inner ear infection because I can still swim and snorkel and everything
20th June 2007
got this off Foxglove's LJ and though it would be fun as well :
Ask me to take a picture of any aspect of my life that you're interested in/curious about - it can be anything from the house I live in to my favorite shoes. Leave your choice here as a comment, and I will reciprocate by taking the pictures and posting them as an LJ entry. That way you get to know a little bit about my life.

Califur 2.3 photos
so I FINALLY got around to putting up some of the photos I took at Califur this year. :
there on my flickr page along with my FC pics.
they can all be found here http://www.flickr.com/photos/frostyorca/
SO today i go off to a SCUBA expa at the Long Beach Convention center. I have been looking forward to going to this for a while now for many reasons. I have been wanting to get into scubu for a long time, (i am an orca after all) and this is a great way for me to get some info on stuff and all that. My dad used to do a lot of diving when he was younger but its been a while since he has done anything dive related so were going together. this way he can get caught up on things as well as keep me from feeling like a total newb there. besides anything that gets me out of the house and doing anything with my dad is a good thing. :
then when i get back this evening from that (at about 4 or 5) i turn around and head off to the monthly furry get together. I'll brobebly till around 2AM.
so thats my days plans. other than that, not too much planned for this weekend, probably just rest on Sunday.
30th May 2007
Just a little note to everyone out there. I'm going back to making most of my posts "friends only" If your not on my list and want to be just let me know and I will add you. there are some things going on now that i want to keep friends only. :
thanks for understanding
