New USB 2.0 Hub


Well, I finally went out and bought that new USB 2.0 hub.

By the time I got around to it on Friday, it was dark out...and I just didn't feel like doing much of anything.

Saturday, it rained.

So today I went.

Since the main reason for needing one was for my iPod Shuffle, the top ports make this unit make sense.

shuffle's got a secret

Seems the iPod Shuffle uses an Push/Pull transistor output stage rather than the more common single-ended capacitively coupled output.

Wonder if they'll do this to the rest of the iPod line....

The new Doctor Who is Great


I'm not proud, but with some help from some friends...I got a peek at the episode that leaked out.

And, no disappointments here. I want to see more.

Too bad I don't live in Canada anymore....guess there's a downside to being in the US.

At least there's hope that it'll run for many years to come....not like on American TV where they'll kill it after the first couple of episodes before it gets too popular or run it into the ground against some other popular show. Ignoring that lots of us can still watch both (or more...since I have 7 ReplayTVs + 1 [currently] cable company DVR) shows even though they are at the same time.

no Sound Check in iPod Shuffle

Well, I found a gripe to have with the iPod Shuffle. It doesn't implement Sound Check.

Very annoying having it become very quiet (such that I have to crank it to max to hear a track)...and it become very loud...(and have to almost completely silence it).

Would probably have been even worse if I was using headphones and/or didn't have easy access to the volume while using it.

Blast from the past....

Today mixed in with my mail was the folded up envelope that felt like it had been drowned.

It was from Adelphia...which no longer provides cable in my area. But, turns out it was the bill I never received in August 2002. Though I noticed its absence in reviewing my bills and blindly sent the amount in September. It cleared September 6th, 2002...though the due date was September 2nd. I don't recall any problems with them accepting the payment, etc.

The Digital Hotspotter


Well, I was waiting for the arrival of my iPod Shuffle. But, UPS showed up with two packages in hand.

The other item was The Digital Hotspotter. I had ordered this last month, but it was delayed. And, now it is here. Didn't get any advanced notice that it was coming, so it was a bit of a surprise.

Kind of boring playing with it in my apartment, since it basically found most of the APs that I already know about....the ones that have me crowded onto channels 9 and 3....

Wonder what I'll find when I'm at work.... &#59;D

iPod Shuffle on its way

Just got word that my iPod Shuffle has been shipped...UPS gives an ETA for March 18th. Would've been nice if it came before I could show it off at work on Friday.... :)) But, I guess I'll find some other opportunity to do so. &#59;D

TWC was here

After some fiddling around and noting that my signal was too good, and moving some cables around so it would be less good. The box eventually reproduced the condition that prompted me to call (it started stuttering, became unresponsive and eventually rebooted).

So he swapped it for another box....just another SA8000HD.

I kind of suspected this would be the case, because I had heard that they were out of SA8300HDs.

But, as long as it works. &#59;)

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
