A few more pickups for the Collection

I got these in last week, but my woes at work still continue. It is like 1 step forward, 3 steps backward! But that is not why I am writing this evening. I found someone online who had a Canseco collection they had been slowly selling off a bit at a time. I asked if he had anymore, and he gave me a link to his bucket, stating that they weren't for sale. Wellllll...I was able to convince him to sell some! Here they are: The good, the great and the ugly. I'll start off with the middle card.  It

Up to my Eyeballs in Alligators

Work-wise, this past week has really eaten my lunch.  I've had all sorts of fires to put out, and am running on very little sleep since Wednesday morning.  For a while, it seemed like one solved issue ushered in 5 more emergency issues.  Not fun! Fortunately, I have some very good programmers and they are tying things up for me.  It has been a long time since I've been neck deep in code, but this week I've been fully immersed in php and mysql.  Fortunately, I do see the light at the end of the tunnel!  I just hope it

$1200 Worth of Cards Lost at USPS?!?!

Remember the fun Fed Ex / USPS picture back & forth post I made concerning a trade with a fellow Canseco Super Collector? That deal didn't come without stress. After that fun back and forth on pictures, we waited. And we waited. And we waited. $21 on insurance for 2 day priority ... and it just said "Acceptance" for the first whole day on the tracking number. It is important to note that there was a message at the bottom saying something similar to "This package is ready to be dropped off." Talk about worrisome! If an employee swipes it

Tools of the Trade Custom & New Website

Have you ever had one of those days where you feel like you have accomplished nothing?  Well, I have had about a month full of them.  Not because I haven't been busy - but because the progress I have been making on everything seems to be so slow.  Heck, I haven't even touched creating a custom for over a month! What started out as a simple checklist upgrade, ended up being a full blown website overhaul.  I was going to write an article of how I transformed my MS Word Document checklist into a fully searchable sortable online database, but

Trading with a Fellow Super Collector

Today, I mourn the loss of 3 great PC cards. No, I didn't spill milk on them, nor did I accidentally drop them in the toilet, admiring them while peeing. After a week of going back and forth with a fellow Canseco super collector (Razor), I gave up 3 cards and cash in return for 6 cards. I will likely show them when they come in, but a fun little picture back & forth ensued that I thought I would share in the mean time. In true James Bond fashion, he sent me pics to update how my package was
