Charles Dickens put it better than I ever could:

‘It would concern the reader little, perhaps, to know how sorrowfully the pen is laid down at the close of a two-years’ imaginative task; or how an Author feels as if he were dismissing some portion of himself into the shadowy world, when a crowd of the creatures of his brain are going from him for ever.’

Capture HDTV using your firewire-equipped cable box

25 01 2007

According to FCC regulations, all DVRs that cable companys rent must have an active firewire port. While unfortunately you likely won’t be able to record premium channels such as HBO, INHD, DiscoveryHD. All broadcast channels must be open. If any broadcast channels are encrypted a quick call to your cable company will fix this. This is a dream come true for all you TV archivers.
While I use this method primarily for recording 720p, and 1080i HDTV sources, this will work for standard definition digital channels as well.

Coconuter.

17 01 2007

Hello. Meet David, the Coconuter. You can visit his blog at http://coconuter.blogspot.com/

Originally a catharsis project for a high school psychology class, this assignment for David Eric Poarch turned into quite an entertaining video. Having been booted from a previous catharsis performing team, David was forced to perform solo. He had only a couple of days to come up with an idea and did so at the very last minute. Singing, dancing, and acting to a medley of songs (Britney Spears’ Toxic, Westlife’s Uptown Girl & When You’re Like That, Achy Breaky Heart, Starship’s Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now, Disney’s Kiss the Girl, and NSync’s Bye Bye Bye) he made some of the best memories of his life through this unrehearsed and somewhat spur of the moment performance. It turned out to be quite a comical and impressive spectacle, to say the least. David is a half American half Filipino who attended Rice University in Texas for a little more than a year and has dropped out. He is now moving out of the country to become a nomad in the Philippines. He is currently dirt poor and scraping pennies (or centavos) just to buy bare necessities like food and water. He tries to maintain a web site ( http://coconuter.blogspot.c… in order to earn some of his food money. He aspires of hitting it big one day in the Philippines somehow or some way. But for now, he’s just a dirt poor person wandering in a third world country with just some knowledge, talent, and faith to guide the way.

Alpha Geek: CDs vs. Downloads

13 01 2007


cd%20vs%20download.jpgby Rick Broida

The novelty of the 99-cent song has worn off. The ugly reality of Digital Rights Management (DRM) has settled in. The music-download revolution is over. It’s time to go back to buying CDs.
