Game 6 of Calgary Flames & Anaheim Mighty Ducks

Turns out that game 6 is on TV....just the guide says "To Be Announced" at the start, followed by a bunch of stuff that I don't know...and probably won't air as a result :>>

And, I was thinking that I shouldn't sleep in again..... :yawn:

New SA8300HD/HLN4365W1 Discovery

Not sure which to attribute this discovery to....but the other day (Saturday night) I was doing one of the rare times of watching live TV.

I was watching my Calgary Flames on TV..... :wave:

I decided to use the SA8300HD DVR to do the live TV viewing of this, rather than task the ReplayTV that was already recording it or one of the other boxes....largely because I was already switched to the DVR for other HD viewing I had been doing at the time, and then decided to switch to viewing the game in progress.

I thought that the normal output of grey pillars was what I'll have to live with, even though there's no fear of burn in on the display and it is distracting against the black border of the screen.

But, I decided to hit change the aspect of the display on both the HLN4365W1 and the SA8300HD so get the black pillars. I'm sure I'll remember to switch it back....

Latest iptables tweaks on 'box'

Last night I discovered that the reason local IVS transfers weren't working, was that one of my RTVs was trying to use the loopback method to transfer the file. Except that I don't have loopback enabled on my router...and I don't really want to change that.

What had happened apparently was that the box had tried to start the transfer at one time, when WiRNS was down or uncooperative....so it had switched from querying rddns-production.replaytv.net to rddns-production-1.replaytv.net, and since this wasn't being intercepted by my WiRNS setup....it was getting my external IP for the other RTV :|

To get things working last night, I updated my WiRNS configuration to intercept this name as well... and, again the need for loopback has gone away, but I felt the need to look at my iptables setup on box to see why I couldn't get this working.

Microsoft to fix Windows patch | Tech News on ZDNet

Link: http://news.zdnet.com/2100-1009_22-6063785.html

In MS06-015 (KB908531) breaks MoonSoftware's FileTargets, I wrote about a Microsoft patch breaking one of my favourite programs. I've also found other things broken by the patch, but none quite as noticeable....

But, looks like Microsoft is going to fix it....wonder if it'll be an automatic patch or something I'm going to have to track down....

MS06-015 (KB908531) breaks MoonSoftware's FileTargets

Link: http://www.moonsoftware.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=481

On Microsoft's Black Tuesday of April 11th, this patch broke one of my favourite programs. Moon Software's FileTargets

Today, I was catching up on files that I had recently downloaded....where the power of FileTargets is that I can then relocate the file to an appropriate location on my harddrive or network.

So I went over to the forum to see if any progress had been made on coming up with a way to have FileTargets working again (other than removing or disabling the patch....) Well, they did have a solution and it does the job.

A post-mortem of a recent trip....

My first trip since figuring out how to use my Blackberry 7100t as a modem was kind of a failure.

Largely because after I had left, I instantly realized that I had forgotten the USB cable.

Aside from not being able to use my Blackberry 7100t as a modem to access the Internet in places where there wasn't free WiFi....it also meant that I could recharge the battery. I had also contemplated packing my travel charger, but I guess I also forgot to do this.

Fortunately the hotel room had free WiFi, and it was a really decent connection so I made extensive use of that. Another less minor thing that I had forgotten to pack was my Where's George stamp. I could enter the new bills that I acquired during the trip, but I couldn't stamp them. Though I set the to one side of my wallet to avoid having to spend them, so that they could be stamped when I got home.

As it was I managed not to spend these. I suppose I could've made a bigger effort to spend cash during the trip if George'ng was important. There were some other bills that did cross my hands, but they didn't stick around long enough for them to be entered. Normally, I try not to think to much about George'ng when I'm traveling.

Much to my surprise, I found a letter in regards to this in my mailbox today.

The answer is that I have a $50 Store Credit. It is good until October 7th, 2007.

Hopefully, I'll find the opportunity to use it before it expires.

The Weather Pixie

Link: http://weatherpixie.com/

is now featured on my websites. :>>

I had come across her while looking at somebody else's blog recently (I forget where though), and thought about incorporating her into mine.... though I didn't immediately see where I should. So, I put it off.

Later while looking at weather Konfabulator widgets, I saw that there was one for Weather Pixie....so at least I can have her on my desktop. &#59;D

Except today while I was trying the various different pixies...I came across one of a guy wearing a "got root?" shirt....so I had to adopt that one. So, that is one the on here and my other website.

Perhaps someday I'll get a "got root?" shirt....but what I have is a hat with the message, because there used to be this thing called "Hat Chat" at my previous place of work....Unfortunately, I have a rather large head, so buying hats online (or receiving them as gifts...) rarely works out. :`(

Wonder if anybody'll notice that the Weather Pixie on my laptop is actually showing the weather for KTRI rather than KOSU....

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.
