Wow – it’s been a while, hasn’t it? I may have completely forgotten about all this if not for a note I received along with a most excellent Reddit Gifts comic exchange package. I’m doing well – Avery and Raina are both incredible and the absolute light of my life. Mostly I’ve been busy enjoying them and the misses, doing what we do best at Core Business, fiddling with my Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7, and updating AtoZwire.com with Amazon.com deals on the daily. So that’s where you’ll find me while this place is neglected – check it out: AtoZwire.com. See you around.

Just a quick “I’m sorries” for neglecting the blog (and flickr.) Been half-assing the Whiskerino thing (perfect attendance!), playing with Twitter and Facebook and leveling my Gnome Warlock in World of Warcraft. I’ll be back… some day.
Oh – and I’m still geeking out about the DROID and Google’s Android OS. You must obtain one of these devices. Must.
So Whiskerino begins anew today for 2009 and I have mixed emotions about it. It was a little shocking to hear that this would be the last year – yes, you read that correctly. I say that it is only a little shocking because we all know what kind of undertaking this is for Michael… well, we probably don’t know the half of it. It is definitely expensive and most certainly time consuming.
So I am excited and sad. I look forward to the experience for one final year. I’ll likely never grow another beard after this one.
Verizon pinpoints Oct. 28th as the Official Droid Annoucement Date. Motorola Leaks Photos and Specs.
UPDATE: Looks like Motorola jumped the gun and released the photos and specs a tad early. While the page is down again, Boy Genius was able to get everything and GearLog immediately reported on it: http://www.gearlog.com/2009/10/motorola_releases_droid_specs.php.
The resolution alone has me salivating. It sports a 3.7″ 480×854 touch screen and runs a 550 MHz processor, rumored to be the new Cortex-8 architecture.
Calling the Motorola Droid a “must have” and “the most desirable” phone of the year, Verizon has sent the media invitations for an exclusive event on October 28th, 2009.

Bah! The lack of a mySQL or any other type of SQL structure for FoxyCart’s XML datafeed on this great interwebs has prompted me to post the one I created. Feel free to use it. Save some precious time.
This FoxyCart to mySQL db design should be viewed mainly as a solid start (I certainly modified it past this) and also as a good representation of FoxyCart’s version .8 XML datafeed in a usable database structure. If you found this by searching Google, then you know what you’re looking at and know what to do with it… if otherwise, just email me. I’m glad to help.
