Great opportunity for a live-aboard in San Francisco Bay. This boat is an absolute classic with completely rebuilt engine and rewords teak wood throughout. It's currently docking at Jack London Square in Oakland. Imagine how much fun you could have taking your friends out to watch the America's Cup races.
Check the website for interior and exterior photos and specifications. If you buy it... and you learned of it here... want to take The Boegers out on the bay to watch some racing? Read more about Chinese Junk 4 Sale
After 5 years, it's time for an upgrade. The first site we did for Jake was back in 2006 and it was built with Drupal 4.
Jake is an interesting dude. We both are huge Danny Barnes fans but he takes his mutant banjo playing in a different direction, as he's very influenced by classical music (whereas Barnes gravitates toward metal and punk.) Jake is also a backcountry medic which I think is pretty cool. I met him in person once when he was visiting Marin to practice some cliff-side rescue techniques.

This guy in Southern California is without a doubt the master of Metal Dubbing. He takes an existing video (there are several posted below... such as Justin Beiber and Katy Perry and then puts in his own soundtrack that he creates (including all voice and instrumentation.) Brilliant! My favorite is the Christmas twist below, where he takes a death metal video by Gorgoroth and gives it a cheery Christmas tune soundtrack.
So check them out. I've posted his versions followed each by the original.
Gov't Mule brought their Halloween Extravaganza from the East Coast to the East Bay last week and played our newly re-opened and fabulous Fox Theater in downtown Oakland. It was the Mule debut for my friend Wayne and he brought with him the guitarist from local rockers The Real Nasty. We knew we were in for something special (3 yearsago they covered Led Zep's "Houses of the Holy" record, then a Pink Floyd spectacular in 2008 and a bunch of Rolling Stones last year.) Who would it be this year? Read more about Who's My Mule
I have used a lot of different hosting companies through the years. I started off at Gorge.Net up in Hood River, Oregon back in 1995. Since I moved down to the Bay Area in '97, I've tried many... including yahoo!, SiteGround, Godaddy, and others. My favorite has always been LiquidWeb based up in Minnesota. I've had a VPS running for about 4 years that performs very well but their responsive support is my favorite thing about them.
The one drawback about the VPS is that if one site goes down, the entire server and all sites on there go down with it. I learned this one night when Dave Matthews (of Dave Matthews Band) tweeted about the new DannyBarnes.com site (he's my friend and client, Dave produced the record) and 800,000 of his followers piled on for the next 36 hours. I think Dave could bring a government to its knees with a following like that. Hey, Dave, don't you owe me a pizza? Read more about My Favorite Cloud
A lot of catching up to do on Boegerweb.com. Seems that much of the stuff I need to "offload" onto the web winds up on Facebook. I will try and do better. A cool project from the summer of 2010 was new site for Hot Rize founder and Grammy winner Tim O'Brien. Read more about Superclean Now Runs TimObrien.net
