Tacos anyone?

Sunday, July 22nd, 2007

We are at work the other day talking about places to go eat. One of the guys, Ben, says how we need to try this place called Rolandos Super Tacos. Based on other reccomendations Ben has made to me like Josephs Bakery (this place kicks major ass!!!) I figured I better give it a try. Ben says how they have these really big tacos and how I might not even be able to eat the whole thing, but that I shouldnt order 2 of them for sure. Today I decided to have Rolandos for breakfast. They open from like 8-3 on sundays I think so I head over there. Its about 13 miles or so from my house but I dont care, its about the same to get to Joesphs too. I get there and its a seat your self place (I dont like that much becuase I hate wondering around looking for a place to sit). I find a seat and someone promptly brings me out a bowl of chips and 3 kinds of salsa. The salsa was hot, hotter, and damn thats freakin hot. All 3 were really really good, and best of all they were served warm (well hot really, right off the stove). I love salsa served this way. Im looking though the menu and I find a taco with my name all over it. I think it was called the Taco Grande. It was a large taco where I got to pick up to 5 or 6 toppings to go in it. I got eggs, bacon, potatoes, sausage, and beans. It only took a few mins to come out. This is what they brought me:

I nearly fell over. I couldnt even pick this thing up. The fork and knife were a must have to eat this giant. This taco kicked major ass and it was really cheap. My total bill with the tip was well under 10 bucks and I tip heavy. If you are in San Antonio I highly reccomend you stop by Rolandos and get you a Super Taco!!!

My trip to Houston

Monday, July 2nd, 2007

Well I just got home from a week long trip to Houston to deploy the last of our PBX servers to complete the rolling out of our new Asterisk phone system. I had a great time there and got to eat at some really good places. Im just glad to be done rolling out the system, next comes the fun part… managing it 🙂 I will do my best to keep you posted from time to time as I hit any snags. I did happen to have one problem with our voicemail system that I will be covering later once I have a more elegant fix for it. It involves being able to hit 0 and get back to an IVR which will allow for direct extension dialing. For now my fix is kinda crappy and only involves hitting 0 and it ringing our operator ring group.
