MythTV Screenshot Originally uploaded by eidolon. Well, this weekend saw a bunch of advances on the project. The biggest was figuring out, much to my chagrine, that my Toshiba television did in fact have an S-Video input on it. Doh! I patched that puppy in tout de suite, and got an immediate full color imageRead More
I had chalked this weekend to put in some work on the MythTV Project. As of mid-day Saturday, it’s been a mixed bag of results. I received my replacement MX4000 AGP card from Newegg right as scheduled, and proceeded to install it into my system. The problem happened when I tried to remove the oldRead More
So a few days ago I posted a link to a fellow who had programmed all his christmas lights in time with a Trans Siberian Orchestra track. I sort of mused, being the geeky fellow that I am, how this could be done in a reasonable budget. Hackaday to the rescue! They pointed me atRead More
Our new team in Seti@Home BOINC processing is cranking away. All the user information has migrated into the BoincStats.com system, and our ranking is rapidly climbing up the ladder. I have to admit seeing full statistics and graphing stuff like this representation of the Stonekeep team is just too cool for words. We’re ranked aboutRead More
Folks are well aware that I’m not exactly a screaming Microsoft advocate. While I concede they’ve done more to advance and stabilize the concept of ‘Computers for Everyone’ than virtually any other manufacturer (save perhaps Apple), they’ve done so in such a poor, disorganized, and ruthless fashion, it’s resulted in a global environment that isRead More
From a pointer noted on gdaniels‘ LJ.
Remember that ‘Fall’ flash animation a while back? Well, someone’s hacked it up a bit to let you watch your favorite world leader tumble through random painful contortions. Fun for the whole family!
It’s the age old conundrum. If you’re a guy, and you’re looking for friends, dates, or romance on the net, you’re immediately at a disadvantage. It’s generally up to the guy to take the initiative. So how DO you reply to the personal ad of that wonderfully sexy person on OkCupid or Craigslist and notRead More
Some fellow(s) with too much time on their hands, a lot of christmas lights, and a passion for the Trans Siberian Orchestra managed to choreograph their house christmas lights to the music. This is just masterful. Check out the the full video in WMV form.
It’s rare that I find an online service that I really get sunk into right off the bat, but Flickr.com has me totally roped in. Some friends of mine have been using it for general picture sharing, and although I knew a bit about it, my experience with other picture sites (Shutterfly, some others) hasRead More
I found this posting recently. It talks about a fellow who picks up a hitchhiker and gets a whole new perspective on things. A wonderful read, very thought provoking and honest. Thanks to Greg Hughes for the pointer.
The legions of Stonekeep minions took on a new dimension today as we set up the Stonekeep Cluster Computing team on Seti@Home. We’ve got some fairly high-power hardware lying around, so we figure it was time to put all that idle silicon to work and band together. If you’d like to join, feel free. It’sRead More
Here’s a quick update to my project to build and run a MythTV box. Today saw what is most likely the last bits of setup on the disk storage. Thanks to a fortuitous woot at woot.com, the main drive is now a 250gig WDC ATA drive. That, coupled with the 40gig drive we originally isntalledRead More
This is a cute little toy. Kayak Buzz lets you type in an airport code, and it’ll show you, on google maps, a list of discount tickets radiating out from that airport, color coded based on price. This includes international flights. Nifty. I’m honestly not sure about the usefulness of this. The listing of theRead More
