Finally figured out how to work my network!

Hey all! So, as a 24 yr old I play games on occasion. I'm not on them all the time, because that would leave no time for the lovely women in my life. Anyways, onto what I just figured out.

This is how I figured out how to get my XBOX working so I can join my friends lobbies and play with them. Many of you probably have heard of port forwarding and probably have tried it. I would be one of you. If you haven't here's a link to how to do it. XBOX 360 port forwarding It is a comprehensive guide.

Essentially the part you should take from it is that if you DMZ your XBOX 360 you are opening up your XBOX to everyone in the world. But I dare you to find someone who will hack your xbox. If you are still worried about it, then just set your XBOX 360 to your DMZ when you are using it and take it off when you are done.

Now, here's a short guide to how to set your XBOX 360 to DMZ.

  1. Go into the dashboard and find your internet settings. It should give you information on your connection. From this point find your IP Address that your XBOX 360 has. Write it down!
  2. Now go to a computer that is hooked up to the same router. Go into the network software usually all you have to do is type in the address bar above and it will send you there. At this point most of you will be stopped by a user name and password prompt. Enter your user name and password, for those of you who have not been into your router network software before it will be the default user name and password in your manual. 
  3. Go into your router network settings and it should give you the option for DMZ. Add the DMZ to the IP Address of your XBOX 360. Ok, so this is the part that most people will get frustrated over. If you have this network set up to a modem you DO NOT stop there. You now need to set up the DMZ for your network. Before you leave your router software you need to find out the IP Address of your router. To do this you need to find the status option in your router software. 
  4. Once you find the IP Address of your router you can now exit out and go into your modem software. This may be different for most of you. I believe most will also be but it could also be If it is neither of those look into your manual or google it.
  5. Once you are in your modem software you will not have to find the DMZ option again, but instead of putting the IP Address of your XBOX 360 in there put the IP Address of your router.
This should get it working, if it doesn't leave a comment and I will try to help.

So I know many of my posts have been pretty negative when it comes to women. But, now a days I'm just not sure what to do with them. At this moment there are 3 girls. I'll go through the list of girls.

Girl #1: She seems to be crazy about me. Although, I know things won't work out. She wants to stay in "this" state. I'm obviously not going to choose to stay here if I have the option to go somewhere else, especially Notre Dame, Northwestern or UC Berkely Law Schools.

Now to explain the situation. She constantly calls me and texts me. And when we do hang out she is pretty much attached to me. And at the risk of sounding shallow she is "ok" looking.

Girl #2: She is 31 years old. Ok, so I am not worried so much about the age. And she's well pretty good looking. I'd love to see her with long hair but even with the short hair she is still pretty beautiful. Oh, I also need to mention that she's also going to law school. I'm not sure where though.

But the biggest thing I'm worried about is I don't know how to deal with an older girl.

Girl #3: She's one of my high school friend's younger sister. Also pretty cute, but I haven't gone on a date with her yet. I asked her out but didn't give her a day yet. She said yes. So I got 1 foot in that door. We'll see where this goes.

This is getting complicated. Tomorrow I have a date with girl #2 and well I think girl #1 wants to do something this weekend too. But I also planned to go out with the guys this weekend.

We'll see what I do with this situation. I'll keep you guys updated =)

It's been awhile

So I know I haven't been on and posting in awhile. Things have gotten a bit crazy for the past 6 months. I was in NY for 2 months and I spent 3 months studying for the LSAT exam, for those of you who don't know what that is. It's the entrance exam for law school. It goes to say that I got a pretty good score. I scored in the top 10% of the people who took the exam.

Anyways, I'm sure you guys don't want to hear about that. Since I finished my exam in December I've been working at the family business. When I went in I was surprised to find out that the place was not only all a mess but the sales have gone down since I had left 6 months ago. I'm usually a nice boss but, when I step in and see crap like what I saw happening I have to be a dick. It isn't more or less being a dick but telling my employees their job is on the line and if they don't start doing the stuff that I hired them to do I will find someone else. This is pretty much the same work crew that I had hired before I left, if any of you are wondering.

Ok, so on to some more interesting stuff. I met a girl. The only thing is that she's 31. Now that's a 7 year age difference and she's older...I'm not really concerned about the age difference, I'm more worried about how to work things with a girl that's older than me. Any suggestions? For those who just seemingly pass by. Well, I have a date with her tonight so we will see what happens.

Oh right I forgot, there is another girl. Things with her will obviously not work out. First of all, she wants to stay in AZ. Personally I want to get the hell out of here. Things here are pretty messed up. Like the government state debt is ridiculous all left by the "Great" Janet Napolitano. "Great" my ass! She took funding away from things like a school dedicated to helping homeless children, to put towards her own personal projects. That's just the start. Then there's this 10-70 legislation, which put a ton of pressure on the illegal immigrant population here in AZ. This cause a massive "GTFO!" (Get The Fuck Out) response. Oh, this did wonders for our already crapped on economy. I've seen my family's business doing over 1 million in yearly sales to a little over half. I think if the people of AZ had a real problem with the current illegal immigrant community we should of done something else. Amnesty or something else. I think this was a ploy by politicians, including Sheriff Joe Arpaio, to further his radical idealism.

So what can I do to change the course of states like AZ? I can become an attorney and do something about it. It's been far too long since there has been someone in politics who doesn't warp the reality the public sees and tells us how things are. Someone who uses logic and understanding, but most of all cares about his fellow human being no matter the country of origin.

Sorry guys I kind of went off on a politics spree. I'd like to hear about some of the things you want me to talk about. Anyways, later for now.

It's spring break here and well I've had too work A LOT. That's just an understatement. We've done nearly 50% better than we did the year before during this time. It gets so busy that we have people still coming in after the time we are suppose to be closed by. But hey who am I to turn away money. CHA CHING!

I have to say one of my biggest pet peeves is when these kids come into my store and they abuse the take a penny leave a penny jar. It's not the take a penny leave a penny then come back later and take the whole fucking jar.

I mean, I'm fine with them taking a penny or 2 here and there. But when they start to take 5 cents, 10 cents, 15 cents that's just wrong.

So I just met a pretty cool girl. But the only prob is that she's in Tucson which is just about a 1 hr 30 mins drive away. Hmmm we'll see what happens. I'll keep you all updated.

Oh by the way I've been drinking a bunch of different ones lately. But haven't written them down or remembered what each on looked like. I'll have to get back to you guys on that. Until then, happy drinking!

What did ya expect?

I think I will again start with the beer of the day. Today's beer is from Ska Brewery. It is their True Blonde Ale. This beer pours a nice golden color with a little head. The aroma is dominated by the wheat then followed by the hops. But given the dominance of the hops I was expecting it to be stronger to the taste than it was. The taste was smooth, the wheat is clearly noticeable but definitely not overpowering. The after taste is very smooth, it's as smooth as a baby's butt. Yes it is that smooth. From some of the reviews that I have seen about this beer, it is a highly underrated beer. Though, I believe it is underrated I think it is too smooth for me. It is still a good beer in my opinion and I wouldn't mind drinking it again. Very good beer to drink for those who just started drinking craft beers. Grade: B

So on to today, I worked the morning then had to come back in at night to close up for 4 hours. This is actually the first time that I have worked with...I will name her "desperate", for reasons I will explain a little later. In the morning I got some bad news. It's not a good idea to put an ad in the local paper that we are offering a dirt ass cheap 30 pack of beer. My sales rep was freaking out about it. But it was already circulated and too late to take it off. So we had to make up a cover story. Not a very good cover story but it was the best that we could make on such a short notice. If you want to know what the cover was just ask, but I'd rather just move on to the more interesting part of the day.

I would have the say that I have not worked the night shift on a Friday night in a long ass time. Not that I actually use my Friday nights off to actually go out and do something. Anyways, today I was working with Desperate. Now here's why she is now named Desperate. For about the first 2 hours all I heard from her was this guy's cute and I want to be with him, for nearly the entire male student body at ASU. But I will attest to one very big fact, gotta keep up my vocabulary, most of those guys were not the nice guys. The nice guys in her life all fell into the friend category. mmmmMMMMMmmmm the dreaded friend category, once in you will NEVER get out! MUAHAHAHA!

This pretty much lead to telling her the simple facts of college life. Girls go for the jerks and assholes, as previously mentioned in my earlier posts. She, of course protested that I was wrong. I then asked her to prove to me a scenario that she has experienced that I was wrong. She started to explain how each one of the guys that she mentioned that she likes were all nice guys. This is of course a praise to the Love Is Blind God. All praise him! AMEN! She sees what she wants to see.

Don't get me wrong she is a really nice girl. All I am doing is educating her on how to sniff out the asscracks. It was at this point when I started to feel my old confident/borderline cocky self coming back from a long ass vacation. So for the next 2 hours she was being as stubborn as you can be, just wouldn't listen to the true facts of the world. Oh well, can't say I didn't try.

That's about it for today, make sure to start reading from the beginning of my journey.

Long Time No See

Today I'm going to start off a little different. I'm going to start off by telling you what today's beers are. Today I'll be tasting a Breckenridge Vanilla Porter eaten with a steak. From my new found knowledge of the wild world of beer and food, I've recently learned that red meat and porters go really well together. This porter was poured into a small neck glass. It pours a dark brown color, the aroma has a slight sense of vanilla but nothing prevalent. The taste is a smooth vanilla with little bitterness. Some people will say that this porter is very harsh, but the key to my opinion is that I ate a steak with the porter. The steak made the porter a much smoother beer to drink and in my opinion a overall decent beer to session at any time....that i'm having red meat. Grade: B

The second beer is an Odells Isolation. This beer pours out a reddish amber, with the aroma presents an earthly aroma. The carbonation is prevalent. I would have to say that I didn't like having too much carbonation in a beer. But now that I started on this journey in craft beers I have learned that there are good times for a lot of carbonation. This would be one of those times. The taste of this beer shows a good bitterness to it with a very good opposition of malt. I would definitely suggest this beer. This beer would be probably one of my most favorite beers. I give this *drum roll* Grade: A+

I think I'll finally bring up the topic of relationships, since well I haven't really mentioned it since I started the blog.

SO MUCH BEER!!!! @_@

I know, I missed yesterday. I'll try to make up for it today.

So today I started off by going off to the gym for 4 hours. It wasn't like I was forcing myself to be there for 4 hours I just felt like I could keep going. It goes to say that I got a pretty good workout.

After the gym it was back off to work. For those of you remember, Monday's are the days that I work the night shift. Today my goal was to figure out some videos to put together for our microbeer section. I can't tell you how many videos I've been through. But I would have to say that the thing I remember from all of them is that there are 12,000 + different beers in the world. That's insane! I guess I better get drinking. 

Today we have 2 different beers!! =O

The first beer is the Alaskan Amber Ale. This beer presents a clear through deep red color. The aroma is very difficult to explain. I have heard that it smells like caramel, but I can only sense a slight hint of caramel. In my best description the aroma has that hint of caramel but is highly overpowered by the grain. This beer doesn't surprise, it smells like grain and it tastes like grain. There are hints of caramel and a very small amount of hops, but it's all overpowered by grain. This beer I would say is a very good beer to sit down and relax with. There are no surprises and for some, nothing that you may have to muscle through. ;-) Grade: B

The second beer is a beer from Big Sky Brewery. It is their famous Moose Drool. This one I would have to say I was a little hesitant about. I wasn't sure what to expect. The aroma was slightly deceiving, I was expecting a similar beer to the Left Hand Milk Stout. For those of you who haven't had the Left Hand Milk Stout, this beer is in my opinion an overpowering coffee beer with a hint of chocolate. I would have to say that it wasn't something that I expected at the time. But this time with Moose Drool the coffee had definitely a weaker punch, which in my opinion made it all that much better. Not only did I sense the coffee but there was caramel prevalent in the aroma as well. So far this was exactly like the Milk Stout that I had before. But to the taste the first couple seconds there is definitely a similarity between the 2, but I do like how Moose Drool ends with a sweet chocolate taste. It almost feels like one of those water log rides at Disneyland. You start going up with the aroma and have a feeling for what to expect. Then you go for a pretty wild ride for a couple seconds, and finish off with a nice smooth ride back home. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer, it definitely lived up to the hype. Grade: A

After those 2 beers I'm feeling a bit buzzed. Each one has about 5.1-5.4% ABV I would say that if you were going to pick one or the other, pick the moose drool if you haven't had it. If you guys want to add some beers that you've tried just leave me a comment and I'll put it up on the next post. Cause god knows that I won't be able to try all 12,000 + beers! I'll be drinking all the time and probably too wasted to even use my palate to tell you guys what each one was like.

Oh, I'm thinking about starting a video blog addition to this on the different beers that I try. But it's in the works. Happy drinking! and well here's hoping to my life as a virgin! CHEERS!
