Portfolio Updates

I updated my portfolio area with a few graphic projects and a movie script project.

(I hope to digitize some of my early work in the public access TV area and stick it online in the near future. A few bits might hold up well even though our production values were so low in the mid-90's.)

All My MP3s to CDs

I just bought a new car (the Scion tC) that has both an MP3/WMA car CD player and a handy AUX jack in the arm rest. Although I like the idea of taking my MP3 Jukebox with me in my car for long trips, I'm pretty certain that I’d like to get at least 50% of what I listen to in MP3CD format.

So, this weekend I’ll begin another big conversion process, and it seems like only a few months ago I took all my audio CDs to MP3 in the first place.

DIYPVR: Wireless MediaMPV

A few weekends ago I took my MediaMVP wireless with the help of the Belkin F5D7130 which is both a wireless access point and a range extender. It worked like a charm.

Now I can cut down that 150' long Ethernet cable I strung down the back of my house and get on with listening to my ever growing MP3 collection.

The Server is Up, Yo.

Back to normal. Normalish...

The System is Down, Yo.

Our servers are being moved this weekend, so no email and no sanity until Monday morning.

Long time no post...

After reading my wife's blog that contained an apologetic post about not writing in a while, I thought I'd catch up as well. It's been a busy, busy week at the office, and I'm just now getting to the past three days of email.

I will have to say, if you haven't picked up a copy of ThunderBird lately, you don't know what you are missing. It's up to version 1.05, and the minor improvements keep coming. I've even been following a thread for the ThunderBird 2.0 Roadmap that states that an OpenOffice-like Real Time Spell Checker is on the way.
