speaker This week’s song is a great song by the great Irish American Punk band Flogging Molly. Nothing much to say about this song really besides it’s a great song. You’ve might have heard it on the TV show Weeds before. I’ve known about them for a while. I think they are a great band and always look forward to new music by them. This song is a bit older and from their album Drunken Lullabies.

Here are the lyrics:

If I ever leave this world alive
I’ll thank for all the things you did in my life
If I ever leave this world alive
I’ll come back down and sit beside your
feet tonight
Wherever I am you’ll always be
More than just a memory
If I ever leave this world alive

If I ever leave this world alive
I’ll take on all the sadness
That I left behind
If I ever leave this world alive
The madness that you feel will soon subside
So in a word don’t shed a tear
I’ll be here when it all gets weird
If I ever leave this world alive

So when in doubt just call my name
Just before you go insane
If I ever leave this world
Hey I may never leave this world
But if I ever leave this world alive

She says I’m okay; I’m alright,
Though you have gone from my life
You said that it would,
Now everything should be all right

She says I’m okay; I’m alright,
Though you have gone from my life
You said that it would,
Now everything should be all right
Yeah should be alright

Ever since I got my first Gmail account a couple years ago, I wished it had IMAP support. As many probably know, Gmail has recently enabled IMAP on accounts. My account still doesn’t have it enabled, but my Gmail for domains does. I was excited at this news, but then I started thinking about it. What do I really need it for? This isn’t a few years ago when desktop email was more popular. With everything going web-based, this is a step in the opposite direction. Sure, I can use it so I have a backup of all my mail, but I could do that with POP access as well, which is what I’ve been doing for backups the past year. I don’t have an iPhone or another phone that does IMAP, so I don’t need it for that. Truthfully, I don’t have any reason for IMAP. So, here is my request Google. Change the interface of Gmail. Make it look more like the redesigned Google Docs and Spreadsheets or something. You’ve had the same interface (for the most part) since you began. A new design would be a welcome change. (Just don’t do reading panes. I hate those and hate how Hotmail and Yahoo both now feature them so they can be more like Outlook.)

For reasons I won’t discuss here I am searching for a new host. I don’t need crazy amount of space and/or bandwidth that many budget hosts oversell. I would like around 10gb space and 25-50 gb of bandwidth. I want a reliable host with CPanel (or Plesk) installed and the ability to host more than one domain (would like to host 5, at most). If anyone can recommend a reliable host that meets my needs, drop me a line.

There are several things I would like to accomplish before I die. This post isn’t about those. This is about a goal I wish to accomplish before someone else dies. I have a huge sense of St. Louis pride. I take pride in the city, the teams, and the music. Whenever I see someone successful come out of St. Louis, it feels good. There is a legend that still lives in St. Louis. He is known to many as the Father of Rock n Roll. People such as Eric Clapton, John Lennon, and Mick Jagger have all praised his talents. Who am I talking about? None other than Chuck Berry. And at 81 he is still touring. He plays at Blueberry Hill in St. Louis about every other month, when he’s not still doing shows around the world. I am making it my goal to see Chuck Berry perform before he passes. Only problem is, I need someone to go with me. It’s no fun going alone with no one to share the experience with.
