Quite awhile back I wrote a really bad review about iTunes. I have since started to actually use it. It seems to have improved greatly since the first Windows version. I prefer the interface for purchasing and downloading music. As far as playing, I think that I still prefer WMP, or my front-end (Meedio), but…Read more
Just bought plane tickets and hotel rooms for Stephanie and I towards the end of March. Woot! Arranged for childcare for Anna and Ruth. I will still need to call one of Christopher’s friends (parents) to see if he can stay over for a couple of nights. Stephanie and the girls are out on spring…Read more
Ran across this here. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
I am very big on the Fairtax Act. I’ve come across several articles and links this morning that pertain to Tax reform and the Fairtax Act (H.R. 25 and S.25). St. Petersburg Times. Washington Times. Not much in this article, it is mainly about Johnny Isakson, a supporter of the act. I voted for him…Read more
Found this interesting article at the Heritage foundation about Social Security reform. Apparently the report is based upon data from the US Census bureau as well as the Federal Reserve. It would be really nice the see some SS reform in my lifetime.

I really like using BeyondTV, but hate it that when I move shows out of the default directory, most of the information about the show is lost. I could move them using the web interface, but that is a pita, have to do it one at a time, and it is slow. I wish that…Read more
Damn, I hate cliffhangers. If you don’t know, it doesn’t matter. Unimportant in the great scheme of things, but goddam.
I am going to go ahead and start porting my Home Automation pages over to IIS again pretty soon. Right now they are accesible on port 8080 using the HS web server, but I much prefer being able to get to it on the standard port 80. Rather than actual control, which would require that…Read more
I have not watched much in the way of TV in a long time. Most years there is maybe one or two shows that I like. Amazingly enough, there are several shows on now that I hate to miss, among them, 24, Lost, West Wing, Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek: Enterprise, Carnivale, Deadwood, and The Sopranos….Read more
