Hello fellow Jabber Loggers and welcome to an early edition of Tech Thursday. This sneak peek is so awesome that I had to share it a day early. If you dig zombies then I’m sure you have either read the comic series of The Walking Dead or you have been watching the show on AMC. Well if you’re like me then you can’t get enough of this! I’m a Walking Dead Junkie and I even have the comics so that I can read ahead. So why is The Walking Dead being mentioned in an early edition of Tech Thursday? Well folks, a teaser trailer by Telltale Games has debuted today and it shows an excellent looking preview to a game of The Walking Dead that will hit some time April ’12 for iOS devices. I’m not sure about Android users but it looks as though it will be out for iPhone and such devices first. I can’t wait for this to hit and make sure to check out the trailer below and follow the link for more goodies from Telltale Games where you can pre-order and get the chance to join The Walking Dead cast and die a horrible death. Cheers!

Ahoy hoy fellow Jabber Loggers! I just wanted to post something real quick about Google+. If you have not heard yet, Google has created their own social network. I know you’re probably thinking, “not another one”, but this looks promising. The interface is nice and somewhat similar but has some very good features. The other day the head of Facebook announced that they had partnered up with Skype to bring video chat to the masses within Facebook. Sounds good and dandy but if you ever used Skype in the past you know that the quality wasn’t that great. Hopefully they have added a little something more in order to compete with the features of Google+.
Within Google’s social network they provide “Circles”. They can be customized to your liking and you can separate family, friends, co-workers, etc. When you post something you can designate who you want to see this. You can also break up your streams of information and only view friends, or family, etc. The next feature is called “Hangouts”. This involves video chat and you can bring in multiple people at one time and you can even view YouTube videos all at once. Next is a feature called “Sparks” where you are fed articles, videos, etc. on stuff that you are into. It sounds weird but I will provide a couple of videos so that you can see for yourself. Everything seems awesome so far and I would think that the people over at Facebook have to be slightly worried about this. Google+ has a long way to go to reach 750 million members but if they can deliver they will be excellent competition for Facebook. Have a good night and if you would like an invite drop me a line with your email address. Cheers!Post Views: 487

Good afternoon and welcome back to another episode of Within the Trenches. This is going to be the second and final episode recorded during the 9114911 conference held at the Naperville, Illinois Marriott. In this episode I got the chance to speak to Kelly, CEO of Success Communications Inc. She shared her vision of this one of a kind motivational conference geared towards the most important part of the 9-1-1 world, the true first first responders, the dispatchers. It was an excellent time and the first conference where I truly felt inspired to do more in the 9-1-1 community.
This episode is a must listen so check it out and share it. As always if you have any questions or would like to be on the show you can send an email to email@example.com.

You’ve heard the saying, “Home is where the heart is”? Well the picture within this post is my old house in Fennville. Home is where the heart is relates more to home is where the ghosts are. And I say this because I truly believe that there was something going on at my home whether it’s ghosts, ghouls, or gnomes. From what I was told my house was once a funeral home. Between my parents and I we would take turns using the basement as a bedroom. What I didn’t know when I first started staying down there was that a section of the basement was where the funeral home cremated the deceased. Whenever I went down there it felt like someone else was present. While walking down to the main part of the basement there was a crawl space and it always seemed as though someone was watching from within. There was a curtain that covered the opening of the crawl space and whenever I walked by it I was sure something would jump out.
I’m sure everyone in the area had an old Michigan basement and it seemed creepy but mine was really bad. Even after my parents finished the basement and made it look nice, it still had a scary feel to it. One night I remember hearing little kids calling for help through the vents. I heard it several times and I remember running to my moms room so that I could sleep on the floor. It scared the crap out of me. I told my mom about it and she told me that back when they first bought the house they used to hear people screaming from the basement. There were bones that had been found down there after knocking down a wall and a priest was brought in to bless the home. The bones were buried and they never heard anything again but now my siblings and I were hearing things around the house. Along with the kids screaming through the vents, there was a time when a friend of mine and I heard someone or something running upstairs and down into the basement. We had been up late so that we could sleep the entire way to Six Flags and we heard something upstairs. I thought it was my dad up in the living room but he had already gone to bed. The footsteps turned into fast pounding on the floor above us and it sounded like it ran across and into the kitchen. We ran upstairs and stood by the doorway to the kitchen and we heard it coming towards us and we ran. I remember my friend jumping into one bed and I jumped into the other. I threw the blanket over my head and I could hear someone walking around. It felt as though someone was there staring at us and then it was gone.
There were a lot of scary and creepy things that happened at my house in Fennville. There were things that I can’t explain and maybe I don’t want to know but it’s definitely interesting and something I will never forget. Maybe the scariest thing that happened there was when my mom and siblings returned to the house after we had moved out. She had come back to clean out the basement since it had been sold and she says that it still felt like someone was down in the basement. While she was cleaning she heard something. She stood there for a moment and then heard it again. It was a little louder and it whispered, “I knew you would come back.” That was the last time any of us stepped foot in that house.Post Views: 324
