Kaspersky Error

I just wanted to post this tidbit of info for no use to anyone I know, but I found the solution and wanted to see if it would show up if anyone else had the problem.

KAV Script Checker
Cannot load library for language 'JScript'
Path: 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\jscript.dll'
Please contact the Kaspersky Lab for the solution. (err=000000C1)

FIX: install Microsoft Windows Script 5.6 for Windows XP and Windows 2000.

This may have something to do with Service Pack 3 for XP, because the only other issue a search came up with was for Norton Antivirus and this was on a new PC that didn't have any preinstalled antivirus.

Crib Ready

The nursery is getting more and more complete each day. Last night I put together the crib in just under 2 hours. Silly me forgot to set it to the highest height, because I followed the instructions too literally (you would think they would show the highest setting in the diagram instead of middle height since most people would be putting the crib together for a newborn). I remembered to take some before and after photo's this time.

We also started getting some gifts from the registry. We had been getting some clothes here and there (thanks Tony for being the first even though she won't get to wear the Illini hoody for a year and a half), but now blankets and other odds and ends are coming in. We also bought the curtains and rug, so its really starting to look like somebody's room.

Saturday we will be taking our second parenting class at the hospital. 8:30-4:00 with no chairs (marathon course with no chairs yikes!). I just hope it all makes sense and that I can retain enough to be there when I need to be.

Flip that Dresser

Finally finished with the final coat of polyurethane and put the dresser back together! Its not perfect, but I think it looks a lot better and should hold up better against stains with the poly coat.

Old Dresser

I couldn't find a good picture of the old dresser before we took it apart and repainted it, but here is what it looked like before. After a few years and using it as a night stand, the paint started chipping and there were rings from my water glasses at night.

New Changing Table/Dresser

Mrs. Waj did a great job with the paint, and I made a mess of the p0lyurethane. A few runs here and too thick in a few spots, but I have to admit, I'm proud of us. I think it looks great and should hold up much better. It has a nice mix of retro (it was my great grandmothers vanity and dresser from the 50's or 60's) and modern with the white paint and handles.

Now we are just waiting for the crib and maybe a bookshelf and we can put the room together!

Spring Fever

Well Spring is here! I cut the grass for the first time this year today. I also got a haircut, but it wasn't the first time this year. Lets see what has happened in the past month.... The Cubs are actually playing well so far. My homer fantasy team is doing well since Soto and Ramirez are doing OK. My pitchers are also doing well, Dempster and Zambrano have been holding their own nicely, and so far I'm in the middle of the pack, but I feel I have a good chance to be in the top 3 this year.

Also finished up putting a few coats of polyurethane on the dresser for the nursery. I think its going to turn out pretty well after the new paint job. It will go nicely with the white crib we purchased a few weeks ago. I might have to touch up a few spots of paint on the walls before we can finally start getting the room put together.

Met the new neighbors last weekend. It was about 75 degrees and we were washing the cars in the driveway and fixing up the sidewalk in front of the house. They seem really nice, younger than us, they like to party. Invited us over for beers and Rock Band anytime! This should be fun, although I don't know how much time we'll have to party before the new arrival.

Waj out.

Dear Diary

I know its been a long time since I have written and I am actually disappointed in myself. I guess so much has been going on I haven't had time to reflect on it. What a year:

1) As of yesterday I found out I will be the father of a girl! I found out it was going to be a girl yesterday, I've actually known I was going to be a father 4 months ago.

2) Because of 1) we have been working around the house quite a bit, installed new doorknobs in the entire house, spackled, sanded, painted some walls and trim. Who knew little things like this take up all excess blogging time. It really feels good knowing those things are done and they even look good too!

3) I've been reading lots of things. Blogs, news, books (parenting, baby-naming books, finished the Dark Tower series). These things take lots of time away from blogging too.

4) Went to Aruba, tried wind surfing (actually not as hard as I thought and a good workout, but I would like to have a few days to start having some real fun).

5) Took a relaxing trip up to Door County, WI. Fun time biking, decent food, etc. Fall is nice for the leaves, wasn't really crowded, but Apple picking wasn't quite what I thought it would be. Maybe it would be better to go when the weather is a bit nicer, but I did have a great time.

6)My twin brother had a beautiful son in April, a really amazing kid. This kind of made the decision to finally get past all of the excuses and start a family. As much as I like to think I was ready, when it really hits you, I don't think any type of mental preparation is possible.

7)Many concerts throughout the year, lots of good music released and even music new to me that wasn't new. Still love the punk rock, but some great Indie bands like Tegan and Sarah, Band of Horses, Arcade Fire, among others have really taken over my radio.

8)Work has really picked up. I've really stepped up and have taken on a lot of responsibility even just in the past year. I guess it goes with the territory working for a small company that has had some pretty good growth. With responsibility comes stress, but I've been pretty good about dealing with it so far, although I have had a few sleepless nights.

9)I have decided to change my lifestyle somewhat to coincide with my pregnant wife. I have cut out caffeine (decaf coffee, no soda) and have limited my alcohol intake significantly. It really changes the way you eat, socialize, etc, but I want my wife to know I'm there through everything.

I think I could go on and on, 2007 was a great year! I'm looking forward to 2008 as well. Maybe I'll get some of these things down as they happen instead of writing so much at once. Probably not, since I will be even more busy than ever!

Well I better get packing, taking a short vacation to Myrtle Beach before things get really crazy with work/fatherhood this summer.

Print directly to email

After some quick searches, with somewhat broad search terms, it doesn't seem like there is software that can create a printer in Windows that will create a pdf or jpeg and automatically send the printed item as an attachment. I'm trying to safe a step instead of creating a pdf then emailing the pdf as an attachment, I would like to click print to "email" and it will ask what email address I want to send it to.

Just a reminder for searching later.

Finding Forrester

I just watched this movie last night and it inspired me to write. So I've decided to write a novel. But I can't really write. Instead all you get is this post. But I have decided to devote my time to things that I do well. Then I realized I've been spending most of my free time playing video games and surfing the Internet, which I can do really well. Man I wish I could play basketball. Or write. Or play guitar. In the meantime I'll continue to watch basketball, read and play Guitar Hero.
