Cool open source software

Here's a quick blog post for other open source users out there that are running Windows. A nice blog post/article on talks about five useful open source applications that users can install on their Windows systems. I know I'll be trying most of these applications soon.

I'm now a husband

Yes, I'm now a husband and it feels great! Well Amanda and I got back from our honeymoon this afternoon. Our honeymoon was great as we had a lot of fun. The wedding on the 23rd was so beautiful and everything was great. Some things didn't go as planned but it still turned out to be great. We are so thankful to God and everyone who helped and came to the wedding and reception.

We are going tomorrow to view some of the pictures digitally. We won't have pictures for a little while but once I get them I will post a few here. Once I get pictures digitally, I will post them online and I can send friends and family the link to view them. So if you're a friend or family member, you can email me at: adamwlad @

New SimCity game will be SimCity Societies

Remember those SimCity games? Well there is going to be a new one in November coming out that will be a little different from the past SimCity games. This new SimCity game will be named "SimCity Societies". The only SimCity game I've played has been SimCity 2000 which at the time I thought was the best game ever. I still think it's a good simulation game. I hope this new SimCity game will be as fun.

From a blog post on

"The game is going in a new direction that'll allow you to totally customize not just the layout of your city, but the 'character' of it. You'll apparently be able to make everything from a candy-coated fantasyland to a brutal police-state, defining the whole tone and culture of your citizens. Fan of Al Gore? Build yourself a green-living utopia where everyone leaves a small environmental footprint. As the city planner you'll juggle your resident's stats: industry, wealth, obedience, knowledge, devotion, or creativity."

Of course the graphics should be better than past SimCity games, check out the picture below and you can view more here.

Counting down, 10 more days

It's now 10 days before the big day. I'm currently with Amanda in Buffalo, New York getting more wedding stuff done and set. We're also looking for places to live in Buffalo. The weather here has been really nice and a little too hot for me as the sun has been out.

Others have been asking if I'm nervous but I'm really not. I know in my heart and head that everything will be all right and our love will get us through any obstacles we may have in the coming 10 days.
