Dad of the year, and a general update

I’ll start by posting this video a guy who has to be father of the year! Steve Monforto managed to catch a foul ball over the glass up on about the third or fourth tier of Phillies Stadium. He hi-fived and then passed it to his 3 year-old daughter. Watch the vid for what happens next

In his own words:

See, when she first threw it over, you know, I kind of laughed and was like, ‘Oh my gosh, there it goes.’ But then the look on her face was that she may have done something wrong, so I wanted to let her know that … she didn’t do anything wrong

That has got to be the most awesome reaction you could hope for from a Dad, and you can’t fake caring in that split second. So, big hi-five to you Steve. You can also see another story about it here.

In my life, I just sat my CCNA semester 3 final and passed that, so on to semester 4 next week. Also been finalising site. The main functionality is all good, but I’m just sorting out getting the additional libraries and extensions installed at my host to ensure the additional functions all work. PDF creation isn’t natively supported for example. All good, but it all takes time around assignments and tests etc.

I’ve got more ideas on the go too, so hopefully have another site or two up soon. They’re all freebies at the moment; it’s more of an experience and doing it kinda thing, rather than a make lots of $$$ effort. Hey, the web should be free!!

What else to say, I also did my 1,000th tweet today (follow me @camerontwigden). Hopefully people find them interesting, useful, or at least not too boring.

Other than that (and studying), I’m getting geared up a bit for Parachute 2010 already. We’re trying to nail down all the Food Vendor contracts and such by the end of October to enable us to be fully organised before Christmas. It’s going to be a MASSIVE weekend, with it being Parachute Festival’s 20th Birthday!!!

I’ve also just today set up my SocialVibe widget over to the left –> It’s FREE to support, just click the support link and be supportive. Since it’s FREE, you have no excuse not too, so please do. Invisible Children is an awesome charity, and needs every bit of support possible.
