Through Kingston, Picton, Markham, and Richmond Hill
Late start in the morning. Heavy snowfall. Difficult driving conditions on the 416. Lots of accidents. I got pictures. Cleared up pretty much by the time we got to Kingston. Marc's made progress on his house. Got a lot of pictures of his family, and of Caresse in particular. Stopped off at Marc's parents' place in Picton to drop off a diaper disposal gadget. Clear drive into Toronto, but we were concerned about the time we would have to browse at the show. In the end, we decided not to go to the Saturday show and save our money for just one day (Sunday). Staybridge Suites in Markham. Had some difficulty finding the place. Saw ATI's new headquarters. First time in a Staybridge Suites, and now I've managed to experience four out of the 6 hotel chains in the InterContinental Hotels Group. Experimented with the net access options in the hotel room. There are 3 official options given in the hotel directory.. Heh, the very first page of the hotel directory book is how to get internet ...

30 Nov 2003
Well it's another thanksgiving. I actually took the trouble to get up at 5:45 and see if I can pick up any good deals. I picked up a new tv for the bedroom and some bathroom furniture. The prices were negligible though. What a rat race though. Next time I'm going to Frys! :-) I also started putting the home lights. Being on the roof is no fun. One thing not to do is to use your pocket pc as a mp3 player. The damn thing kept changing volumes, run other programs it was a pain in the ass. GNOME - Well I've been trying to hack rhythmbox for awhile and trying to add this one feature I wanted. The codebase isn't that hard to learn but working with some of the routines can be kinda confusing. All I was trying to do was add some tooltip loving and it looks like it might actually be easy to do. Today I finally figured out the part of the code that will do it. Admittedly I didn't have to try too hard it took me about 25 minutes to figure what was going on. I hope to get it up and going ...

Returning To A Not So Sunny-vale
I returnted home today from my southwest/midwest jaunt that lasted 8 days. My body is all screwed up for some reason. I have been feeling out-of-whack since Thursday morning and I can't seem to shake this disease. I think I've got a case of the over-indulgence-coupled-with-no-sleep syndrome going on. It makes a moderate amount of sense considering I got ridiculously hammered on Wednesday night, ate a load of junk food and a huge turkey dinner on Thursday and Friday had some Chicago style deep-dish pizza. I'm going out on a limb here but I think that the Taco Bell I had for dinner today didn't really help the situation that much. Tomorrow I have to unpack my bag and start packing up my room. Between all that I want to eat a lot of fruits and do a lot of laundry. Those goals are not unattainable for the normal human however for someone lazy like myself, I'm setting the bar pretty high....

MOVIE - BAD SANTA - Review Rating $$$$$ (OUT OF 10) STARRING - Billy Bob Thornton ( Willie T. Soke), Tony Cox (Marcus), Bernie Mac (Gin Slagel), Lauren Graham (Sue), John Ritter (Store manager), Brett Kelly (The Kid) & Cloris Leachman (Grandma). DIRECTOR - Terry Zwigoff (Crumb, Ghost World & Louie Bluie) Bad Santa is an adult version of The Grinch Who Stole Christmas without any redeeming charm. Bad Santa, in stark contrast to this year's other Holiday comedy Elf, is unable to sustain the potential humour of its premise from beginning to end. Bad Santa more closely resembles Intolerable Cruelty, another recent comedy that had only one mildly comedic note. This shared failing, both films were coincidentally produced by the Coen Brothers, may have a lot to do with the fact that the central characters in these movies are so loathsome and shallow to begin with. The notion of a drunken bum playing Santa Claus may well be funny but the character has very limited comedic appeal over and ...

Longhorn intallation struggles
It has been a long struggle today to get Longhorn installed on a new box. I purchased this box because I wanted to install Longhorn on a dedicated drive. My plans were to run Longhorn on a SATA drive spinning at 10,000 rpms. This would be a second drive in a box already running an ATA 100 7200 rpm drive. Ya, you want to know every thing in this box don't ya (you know you’re a geek when..). Ok, even if you didn't ask I would have to hold you down and tell you anyways. But wait what drove me to build a new system? There I was at PDC, with "the goods" in hand and a nice Lattitude C810. A half gig of ram, a ripping fast 5,400 rpm drive, and enough battery life to get me almost three quarters the way through a PDC session. I had my copy of VMWare 4.0 and I was ready to install the bits. Kind of disappointing, "yes". I didn't look promising. I saw a few dell 8600 Inspirons running around the conference. I even met a guy that had one outfitted with the 7200 rpm drives. I really want one ...

Streaming Media (like math) is hard
I spent the last 24 hours pretty much non-stop, in front of my computer, trying to get a functional live streaming media system running on my computer. Much to my disappointment, I have not been able to do so. The catch is that the system mustUse Linux as the primary serverSpit out a stream that is viewable on Windows, Linux, and Mac OSXNot use any pirate softwareTall order eh? Here is what failed horribly:ffmpeg/ffserver would crash after only 30 seconds. The site states that ffserver is broken, and will be fixed "real soon now"Darwin Streaming Server won't even start the included demo streams. MP3 seems to work though...Video Lan Client has an inpenetrable language, and segfaults continuously (on my otherwise reliable gentoo box). Still, shows the most promiseWhere does this leave me? Poring over the protocol analysis tool Ethereal trying to grok enough info to write my own server in Python. Wish me luck!
