My Rants and Raves about technology, programming, everything else...
I hope everyone is ready. We're changing places. I have a reservation at the 5 Season's Brewing Company.

Here is video of Gate's MCE demo at CES. Not only a MCE crash, but also an XBox crash later on in the day. Very embarassing. But it isn't without a precedent:
After a relatively happy honeymoon, my marriage to the new Tivo is on the rocks. I've been spoiled. ReplayTV just does what I expect, with less of the intrusive advertising of Tivo. Here are my sticking points:
So this leaves me with two options, go back to my ReplayTV (luckily I still have it), or see what a Windows Media Center Edition box with the XBox MCE Extender will do for me. For now I am probably just going to get the ReplayTV going again, and look at the MCE for the future.
Plan to meet Atlanta area geeks at January's Geek/Nerd dinner on January 13th!
So it's Christmas day and I received a RoboSapien from my brother. It takes me back to my first 'Programmable' toy back in the eighties. Much more limited than the RoboSapien, the Big Trak was a tank that you could specify it to move forward, back, turn left and right, and fire a fake laser:
Elf on the TV, apple pies in the oven, ham on the table and I am blogging. I must be nuts. Of course I am at my mother's house and anything to get me out from in the middle of my vaguely crazy family. Its wonderful to be home, but I am constantly reminded of why I left my hometown to begin with.
I hope everyone out there is having a happy holidays, whether it is Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Solstice or just December.
