Fingerprint Enabled Locks

The founder, Joshua Baer, of the last company I worked at had biometric locks on his house, or at least on parts of his house. And one day one of the broke. And he blogged, or twittered about it being broke, which got me to thinking, maybe I should look into some sort of biometric or fingerprint lock based system.

I mean who hasn’t lost their key to their house? We’ve had to call the locksmith out at least twice in the past three years because we’d lost the keys… And we’d already lost the key before we used the copy that was in the back yard under that special rock, so that when we really lock our keys, we had to break a window or call the locksmith: Note to self, don’t break the window in the room with the window break monitor, and then expect to be able to explain to the police why you have a locksmith at your house and a broken window ;)

So anyways… We need a lock we can get into without a key, because I just don’t fit in the doggy door anymore.

I found a company that sells fingerprint locks and they have lots of options that I’m really interested in… how cool would it be for my kids to grow up without having to carry a key to their house with them?

I never did as a small kid, because we grew up in a small town and honestly didn’t lock our doors. In fact, I’m pretty sure my mom still doesn’t lock her doors… but in Austin, we have to. How cool would it be for the kids to grow up without keys? I’m sure one day they won’t have to carry keys at all. Now I’m all Jetsony…

World of Warcraft – Buying an Account and Key Codes

About 4.5 years ago, my oldest son Jack was born. That summer, I bought a copy of World of Warcraft, or WOW as it has come to be called. And I waited until we were in the hospital after the baby was born to open it and install it.

I had no idea what it was. I figured it was just the next version of Warcraft, which I’d LOVED playing in college.

Come to find out, it was what it is… a massive online role-playing game. But there was one problem: I couldn’t play it at the hospital. I had to get online.

So I waited until we got home, and booted it up one night around midnight, while feeding the baby. And I started to play. And play I did.

I played WoW almost every day, for three or four hours at a time. It got so bad (I loved playing it so much) that I was even playing it during the day sometimes, while I was at work. Heh… Good times.

I played until I got to Level 60 (the highest you could go at the time), and I was pretty good. I started a guild, and got it to like 100 members, and had some “good friends” on WoW. And then Blizzard came out with an upgrade. Their first for the game. And I realized that I was screwed. I was going to end up playing even more WoW. So one day, I decided to quit. And I did.

Cold Turkey.

I sold everything I had… gave away all of the gold to my guild members, and turned over the guild to one of my co-leaders.

And it was like quitting cocaine or heroin, I’d imagine. It was tough. Trust me… quitting cold turkey like that. What was I going to do with all of that extra time? Heh.

Now that the boys are getting older, I’m actually starting to think about playing WoW again, but I don’t want to start over again at Level 1… at least not for my main character. So I’ve been looking into buy a character.

In my research, I’ve found BuyMMOAccounts.com, which offers cheap Alliance WoW Accounts, cheap Horde WoW accounts, wow key codes, and more. And the super Elite accounts they have aren’t all that expensive when you consider how long it takes one to actually achieve level 80. I found this Level 80 Human Death Knight for under $700, with two additional characters.

And they offer a 100% unconditional guarantee on the securitve of any accounts you purchase.

Love it. When I’m ready to jump back into WoW, I’m headed to BuyMMOAccounts.com.
