Hanging 'em up

Jul. 26th, 2009 | 08:44 pm

This'll be my last post, however I'll still check my friends list for those who haven't given up on LJ and head for greener pastures.

Anything interesting I have to say will be on Facebook.

For posterity

The trick to running dual sound cards on a K8S-LA is setting the onboard audio to "enabled" rather than "auto".

THURSDAY NIGHT
MOSTLY CLOUDY IN THE EVENING
THEN BECOMING PARTLY CLOUDY.
LOWS 5 TO 10 BELOW. WEST WINDS 10 TO 15 MPH.
WIND CHILL VALUES AS LOW AS 20 BELOW.

For those who are not privy, due to a very loose dress code at work, the goatee is approaching record length.

HDTV Ahoy!

Jan. 8th, 2009 | 06:59 pm

So. PCHDTV card took awhile to configure. It took going to #debian on freenode, but I got it working somewhat. The problem is that the old girl can't take decoding most of the HD streams. The Radeon lacks XvMC support, so there is no MPEG-2 hardware acceleration, which means I'm stuck with the textured video via xv. Looks like that system upgrade is coming a little faster than I thought.

In addition, the antenna is rather good, but is way too bulky. I might try a cheapie from Meijer or something. Otherwise there's a nice flat one on Amazon.com. So, I have a TV antenna for sale...

What am I doing today, you ask?

Jan. 4th, 2009 | 12:59 pm

Patiently awaiting the time when music (and hair) like this is back in style.

The Letter

A few people asked about the letter I gave to my cousin in lieu of a gift that was on backorder. Since so many people liked it, here it is in its entirety:

GTA:SA

Dec. 28th, 2008 | 12:18 pm

Of the games I put on the SGE list was GTA: San Andreas. Partly because I never really played that when it came out, partly because I was under the impression it ran well under Wine. Unfortunately it doesn't at the moment, but the soundtrack brings back some memories. Oh, how I enjoyed the R&B of the early and mid-90s.

Special thanks to Radio Free San Andreas for the nice work on ripping the audio streams.

Who knew I liked lentils?

Best meal I've had in awhile:

Spicy Chicken with rice and lentils from Nazareth Restaruant & Deli.

Going Silent

Dec. 12th, 2008 | 05:46 pm

Sharon at work the other day mentioned my prolific online presence. This reminded me that those of you (especially Diana/Randy/Dad/etc.) who aren't on my friends list don't get to see quite a bit of what I write. I'll have to start manually emailing you anything below board that I locked-up.

The rather amusing thing about the "google" policy at IntraVet is that some people haven't been hired based on their cypersploits. I'm not someone who's overly exciting (the worst I do is the odd cream soda at new year's), but then again I'm pretty open on the web. I don't have much to hide, I suppose.
