To see my photos from the Ice Storm of December 21 – 22, 2013 please go to: http://IceStorm.JoeMittler.com
Just thought I’d provide a quick update on the Ice Storm that hit Toronto and surrounding areas. In South Mississauga, we were hit pretty bad. I’d estimate a 1/4″ of ice on everything. So much so that my neighbours tree had a large branch break off and hit a power line. Then another power line further down had a small electrical fire because it shorted out. Finally, the tree branch fell further down on the power line. So needless to say there is no power here yet. This all happened before 12pm, our powers been out since 10:30am and at 8pm the time of this posting it is still out. UPDATE: Power came back on around 3:30am, took a crew about two hours to fix everything..
Thankfully we have a generator that is hard at work outside to keep our fridge and freezer cold. Next up is heaters in our rooms for 30 minutes each so we can sleep kind of warm tonight.
I made a small gallery with the photos I took today: http://IceStorm.JoeMittler.com

This past Wednesday I went to BestBuy and bought the Silver GoPro, with the suction cup attachment. Was primarily going to use it to record my driving, but would love to put it on my Cat Pickles and take tons of wide angle pics..
I’ve got a couple videos ready to upload to youtube,
I just have to take out the license plates. Video can be seen below. Going to try out 60FPS @ 720P tomorrow, can’t wait.
Launched version 4 of my Churches website last Sunday, http://ApplewoodUnited.ca. It is a complete overhaul of version 3. With this version the homepage layout has been revamped, it uses less plugins than any other version and is responsive! It’s such a delight to see it live. On the first day we had 227 visits!
Off to remove some license plates, until next time…
With GoDaddys recent downtime people were again jumping ship. I however wasn’t affected. I know their hosting isn’t the greatest so I host my stuff elsewhere. My domain was up during the outage, never had a problem. Then two days ago they sent an email to all their customers offering a 30% discount on anything.. Renewed iwillKillyouif.com for another year and since this domain is expiring I did the same…. But not for 1 year, for 8! Which takes me to September 22, 2020. It’s not like I’ll ever be getting rid of this domain, eh!
Quick update: Went on a renewal rampage heh, just renewed ezurl.me for another year!
Have you heard about i will Kill you if? It’s a thing we use to do in college, so one day I decided to make a website out of it one day in Crisp’s class. It was really only used by a couple friends and a couple guys from BabyRobot.. I made a WordPress beta version, which was cool but the site never really went anywhere.. But that’s about to change! I’ve decided to scrap however the site is done now and start over. Now I just need some motivation to do it!
Was thinking about the good ol’ days of blogging and decided to start putting down what I’m “doing”. I called it my doing script.. One of my first. Fairly simple stuff, I think initially I used a flat file but later moved it to a MySQL db.
