I've been working lately on some new projects, and they've got me stressed out like crazy! I am trying to learn this new e-commerce software, Magento, and while I believe it is a great e-commence system, I think it almost needs to be dumbed down for me, haha.
I should have some more updates soon with one of the new sites!
This past Sunday I was able to get over to the Finger Lakes Region SCCA Autocross. I had a great time and while I only came in 11th place, I improved greatly throughout the day. I had never autocrossed a rear wheel drive car before, so it took some getting used too! I plan to attend the next one on October 5th, to see how I would do

Can't wait for next time!
We finally got to hold him today He opened his eyes and looked right at us!!!!!
Yesterday, my wife, Erica and I went into the hospital around 6am because she was having some weird stomach pains. These turned out to be contractions, and they decided at 9am to do an emergency c-section. An hour later, at 9:59 AM, Jack Valentino Centola was born 3lbs 15oz. He was only 34 weeks, so he is 6 week premature. He is having some breathing problems, but they were able to stabilize his blood pressure and his blood sugar level. We have been transferred to Strong Memorial Hospital, and Jack is in the NICU, one of the best in the country.
He is doing great and getting better every day. He is in our prayers... He's a fighter!
Drove by a local dealership this past weekend and something caught my eye... two hours later and I came home with the new hotness....

Well I haven't been updating this much lately as I have been very busy with working on the new Allstar Graphics website, scheduled to launch in early September. It incorporates a lot of my recent trends with SEO and PHP, and it's really quite slick.
Also, I have not yet made a post about this but my wife and I are expecting a baby on October 26th! It's a boy and we have chosen his name to be Jack Valentino. I even went as far to buy jackvalentino.com. We're both very excited.
I've been getting back into my photography and I recently picked up some new stuff, which I will post about later.
Finally got around to uploading them all... Check them out:

Just posted up some new articles on rspeed, one written by me, and another written by a friend of mine, Dave Moffitt. Check them out!
Well, I haven't updated much on here because I've been busy working, and taking care of personal things. With my wife being pregnant, we've had to do so much around here to get ready for it, which takes up a lot of my personal time.
I've had a lot of work come in lately for Allstar Graphics which is great, but much of it is very time consuming. We have some high volume orders coming in soon that we have to prepare for also. It is fun though. I really do enjoy running Allstar Graphics (West).
I also have been working on a bunch of websites lately for Technotic Media. Some redesigns for previous customers as well as new sites, and a redesign of the Allstar Graphics site.
I've finally made some good progress on my truck, a 2003 Ford F350 PowerStroke. The truck has undergone an extreme transformation, and has been in progress since the end of January. Hopefully within the next few weeks, it will be done, and can go to East Coast Audio for some audio work.
This Wednesday, I'll be going to the drag strip (NYIRP) and running the bike there. It will be the first time this year, also since the gearing change, air filter, exhaust, and tune. I'm hoping to break into the 10's but I suck at launching!
Be back soon with more updates!
Picked this up locally a week or two ago. It was used, but in perfect condition!
It's a Czech Arms 550 Kevlar Varmint with a Nikon 3-9x40 Scope and a bipod. The barrel is a 26" heavy style barrel. Looks like it would be very accurate. I still have yet to shoot it!
It's chambered for .308 rounds and the shop gave me some with the gun, but like I said, I haven't had a chance to get to a range and sight it in good.
Well I've pretty much finished up a new site that I've been working on, nyfirearms.com. I've been on vacation in Ireland, and because of the time change, I'm not able to get to sleep early at all. Instead of wasting the time, I just kept working on trying to get the site ready to launch. After some frustrating work with WordPress and Simple Machines Forums, I've been able to get to the site to a point where I can start inviting people to visit it.
The site is a blog and forum dedicated to the ownership, laws, and politics of firearms in New York State. I, along with some other firearms enthusiasts, will be updating the site with news, reviews, and other content. So please check out the site over at www.nyfirearms.com and let me know what you think!
