New car, New Bike, New Kayak. Ready fur fun… oh ya can use a New Girl friend to. Anyone??
well its been awhile and I got the itch to build a new pc. wanted to get into the new ddr4 and higher gaming speeds. since the case I used before was so sweet, the Corsair 760T Black ATX Full Tower Case I decided to use the same case but I bought the white case to keep it in my color scheme. I decided to run this case as air cool to start off with. I liked the looks a of the GPU which Ill be using the new Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980 Ti GV-N98TG1 Gaming-6GD 6GB card which comes with a nifty lighting setup which if I went all out water-cooling I would lose that effect. if I decide to water cool ill just water-cool the CPU and not GPU but if I want to water-cool the GPU I think for the best bang for the buck I would get the new Asus Presidion hybrid card GeForce ti980 cards and not mess with the matching of blocks to a card BS. so here is the list of what ill be using in this set up. I finally bought the Wampa and Luke Skywalker to finish my build and added the pics of them enjoy

hey ya, will be posting updates on my little conversion project that i have started. i always wanted a robotic rover and was looking for years on what to get when i came across a frame that i liked and then after reading many articles i found out that i could take my old T-Maxx and convert it from nitro to Electric instead of getting a pre made ok unit. so first thing i did was get a bracket for an electric motor that fits my frame from How2RC.com. they have articles on how to convert your nitro T-MAX to electric.
Ok so I haven’t been on here for a while and thought I needed to see what’s going on. I have access to a iPad from work and thought I test it out. I am not a big fan of iPad or any apple products. I just can’t find the right programs to use that not only work with what I use now but don’t cost an arm and a leg!! Anyway I downloaded the WordPress app and am takin in gift for a spin. It’s ok. Seen better apps but it works. I have some other articles that I would like to write but when it comes time to write I just get lazy. Hopefully I’ll get into a better mood and start posting more… Until next time. ……
Wait I see a microphone so… Is it like this story actually talking to the iPad to see how well it translates my to this post yes… Not bad in fact some of it was better than my laptop using dragon. Hmm if only I can figure out how to do the voice with my story monologue …… Ok times up
this post was straight from the iPad using WordPress app but one thing is that it didn’t ask for icon, or which category to add it to and to add tags. so I edit it online with the stuff I needed.
been awhile since I been updated. so here I am again. been going through all my pic’s and editing, deleting and juts organizing my pic’s that I have taken over the years. I juts recently finished my Colorado pic’s and my some of my Main pic’s. here a couple below. I have been pushing the new/updated pic’s out to my website http://rasphotostudios.com and also to my flicker account http://flicker.com/sirryche. came across another site called 500px. seem pretty cool if you want to pay for it. the free version would be a waste if you already have flicker. just my two cents. anyway here’s a couple of pic’s.
Here is a story that is going on that I thought I will share with everybody. I usually don’t post too much personal stull on here but I have to vent some and I thought I tell you a story and see what you all think.
Earlier this year my company has made adjustments to our health insurance. I have found out that with this new insurance and also with our previous insurance that our health care provider, Humana provides free yearly physicals exams that are 100% paid for. After discussing this many times with my HR department and our Humana Rep I finally agreed to get a physical that have been long overdue. During this time I had to find me a new family doctor for my last doctor retired many years ago and I thought getting a physical with a new doctor would be good to get to know one another.
I have scheduled a physical on 2/11/13 with Dr. Reynolds for he was accepting new patients and my older brother attends the same practice (I have verified with the office 2 months later to see what I was scheduled for and I was in deeded scheduled for a complete physical). When I get to the office I told the nurse that I was here for a physical. When called in (after a long wait) the nurse took the basics, blood pressure, weight, height, etc. and asked why I was there. Again I responded I was there for a physical. The doctor came in, asked questions check heart, breathing and the basics, and then we sat down and went over the paperwork that I have filled out. In response to some issues that I had he told me that he would prescribe me some medicine for some issues that I had. I did not ask to be diagnosed or to have any treatments. He told me what I was to do and that I would need to come back in 30 days. With that in mind I was not even thinking of coming back at all. He then asked if I ate and yes I have had breakfast for my appointment around 11:00am. In response to that he said when I come back we’ll do the blood test for I needed to fest. Nobody told me to fest in the first place for the blood test so now I have to come back for the blood test.
For Humana to cover the physical a blood test has to be performed so I set up a second appointment telling the nurse that I have to come back for a blood test and that it would be a continuation of my physical for nobody told me that I had to fest. Waiting for me next appointment I receive a bill from the Christ hospital saying that the first visit was an office visit. I checked in with my insurance and they are charging the visit because it was labeled as an office visit and not a physical. I also asked Humana about the second visit and they said that I need to call the doctor’s office and have the visits changed to a physical and then they would pay for my visits and blood test. Humana gave me the name of Bev as the office manager to talk to. After numerous calls I finally got to speak to her and explained the coding issue and that it need to be changed from office visit to physical so that my insurance would pay for like I was told.
On 3/13/2013 I went back the doctor’s office to get my blood test for my physical. Again when I get to the office I told everybody who asked me why I was there that I’m back to finish my physical and get my physical blood test. On 3/14/2013 Dr. Reynolds insisted that I come in to talk to me about my blood test. During his talk he told me what was going on and then told me what I was going to do. First thing is I don’t like to be told what to do. I expect things to be talked about and then given options of what it is needed to be done. He went ahead and ordered me more meds. I still have not stopped by and picked those up and I don’t plan on taking anything. I would more than likely seek another opinion then do anything he tells me to do.
4/3/2013 I just received another bill for all three office visits. I log into Humana and still the visits are listed as office visits and not physicals. To me this is some kind of bait and switch. You go in for one thing and then told that it’s another and you owe them money. Humana has denied the blood test for it was not coded as part of a physical. I will take responsibility of the last visit when the doctor had to see me and discuss my results for I do believe that would be a diagnoses and not physical.
On 5/17/2013 I received a call from a Theresa that is the coding person for the office. I called her back and things did not go to well. Since I received a prescription (one I never asked for) for my nasal problem (I was using affrin for years and knew that it can be addictive but never asked to be treated for symptom or even cured) and for my asthma (which was just talked about but never diagnosed for no tests were ever done but again did not ask for treatment for symptom) that a physical was never performed so it was coded as an office visit. Now understand the only reason why I went in the first place was for a physical and now I am being told that none was performed. I asked Theresa what a physical is so I can better understand of when the physical was performed and when the diagnosis has started. She could not answer the question. Of course they do not call it a physical, they call it a wellness program. So I keep repeating that I was there for a physical and nothing else and she kept cutting me down. I then kept saying that I did not request or wanted any treatments but tremens were performed her response to that was (can’t quote me exact words but along the line of) if you come into our office and the doctor sees that you have a heart problem and dose nothing about it. Then he lets you go home and you have a heart attack what’s going to happen… (I was speechless) you would come back and sue the doctor.
I’m like WTF. If the doctor did nothing I can see that, but most doctors would talk to you and let you know that there is a major problem and discuss (this is a magic word, for this doctor told you the problems and what he will be doing to fix them but not give you any say into what you want) the problem with you. She then told me that they were nice enough to charge me only for the office visit and not for both the office vista and a physical. I like so I didn’t get charged for a physical that I was there in the first place and she said yes that if I wanted I can come back and get one since I was never billed out to the insurance in the first place that I was still entitled to a physical and if I wanted I can go to a different doctor for it. After a time we both started to raise our voices and I was pissed so I just told them that they can talk to the insurance company and my lawyer.
So after that very uneventful phone call I had my HR email our insurance company and the response is that they can only go off the coding of what the doctor’s office puts down. So let’s get this straight. The only reason I went was for a physical that was not a physical but I have received a rebate check from the insurance company because they think that I went for a physical that was not a physical. So in turn I and the doctor’s office just committed insurance fraud for it was to be a physical but the doctor’s office decided to use the office visit code to make more money. Beware for this doctor is here to make money and not to help you at all.
6/1/2013 I have just received another bill for all three office visits. I plan on paying the third visit for it was a diagnosis on my blood work and have considered maybe on paying the second one for I was stupid for going in and should have just say bite me in the first place but I will not pay the two hundred plus bill for the first visit because it was to be a PHYSICAL!! That is paid 100% from insurance.
Wwwhow sorry about the rant but I don’t like getting screwed so I normally don’t post much on Facebook but since I can’t get anything done to correct their mistakes I will just raise my voice and complain to everybody and tell them to avoid The Christ Hospital Outpatient Anderson Family Medicine .
Anybody have an opinion or comment please respond.
Added some Train vids from my new set up, Kato track n-scale setup . been working on it for a while more to come
well I have finished painting and installed my desk. but ran out of money to add the bookshelf’s. I want to make the one wall a built in bookshelf and have all my books and magazines that I have in them. I also have to install the floor. as for now I think I will paint the concrete a different color then when I have money and time I will put some plank flooring down. hmmm I just might put carpet if I can get it for the right price. here are some pics of the project ahhh dang my pics are on another pc. ill dig them up and add them later..OK here I am with some pics the first is when I had the whole basement open and had my pool table. since I have not played pool in many years I sold it and decided to make my office instead. this pic is also after I just installed my new drop ceiling and was showing off it off. the next pic is from about the same position but with the new walls and new hidden door installed. I have added my desks and finished painting the walls but I ran dry on cash and have to wait to get my floor done. I also added some pics of my desk and work bench and of the painted walls. I used counter tops and bought the legs from ikea. I have used counter tops for other desk in my house, they work great.
well hello. it’s been awhile since I last blogged something. so as the title of this session states is that since I sold my pool table I have decided to divide my basement into more rooms. the first is that I put up a wall between my media/TV room and then created another office/library room. since I have used my old computer room as my train room I decided that I needed another room to do most of my pc repairs and also thought that in this room I can make most of the walls with built in bookcases. hence the reason I was naming it more of a library then an pc room. here are some pics of the room in the first couple of modifications. since I already had my drop down ceiling installed I really did not want to tear it down and redo the while ceiling so I had 3 main beams extend thru the ceiling and mount to the main rafters but all the rest of the 2×4 would attached to a top board screwed between the main supports. only thing I would need to do is to place a crown molding at top of the wall to hide the end of drywall that stops at the ceiling. this will make it have a nice looking line.
so far I have finished with the framing and also finished with the drywall. I have a couple of patches to finish and sand then the drywall will be finished. while I am waiting on a couple of spots to dry I started to trim the walls with primer. while I wait for that to dry I’ll have to finished the worst part.. cleaning up my mess. cleaning is one of the worst things I hate to do when I start my projects. but after I get it all cleaned up and I feel more satisfaction of completing my project. next thing I will be doing is building my desk. I plan on using counter tops for my desks. this is a cheap and very affordable way to have big hardy desks. the fist desk will be on the back wall and I have some cabinets that would be the base of the desk. this desk would be 36” high and I will have some shelving between the cabinets under the desk. I also plan on building book shelves about the desk also. this desk will be around 10’ long. plenty of room to have as a work station to do all my pc repairs that I do for friends. from there there would be another 6’ table that stretches to the right of the 13’ . this desktop will be 30’” high and at the end have another 90* right angle 6’desk that will come out 6’ from the wall and be my main desk. the rest of the room will be bookshelves to hold my books and magazines. I will post more pics as I finish the room.
Well here I am sitting in the parking lot of IKEA waiting for the store to open. I thought I jot something down since its been awhile since my last post. I am in the middle of building a room in the basement and I just recently remembered to take some picture between the steps of building the room. I tend to get into the zone and build then forget to take pictures t
o explain what is am doing. So ill be posting a piece on that room or what I like it to be is a library here soon. Also ill be posting some reviews and some pics of my new Barbie doll that I just received. I have a lot of ideas to write about but I tend to get in the lazy side and then never do it. Whew stores open time to go.
wow I can’t believe its been this long since I have posted anything. time is just flying by. with school and work my days just zip by and by the time I think about blogging or any kind of update months have passed by. so lets see what I can rant about. I have just bought me a nas devices along with 4 3tb drives to hook up to my network so I can have backup without having to turn on a pc or to have an os screw up my drives. I have it in raid 5 config. mst of the time I don’t like to have raid for I always wanted the most space I can get and in this device I have 12tb of space. I set it up for a raid 5 and now I only have 8tb of space but if one drive goes out I just pull it out and replace with new drive and then everything keeps going. this way I have a backup of a backup. again time is short so I leave it as is.
