All right. After a short break I'm back. Things have been a bit strange lately.

Personal news is that a a very friend of mine died. Feel like I have to take a minute to remeber Andy. He was a very good person and a great designer and he'll be sorely missed. I can trace a lot of my computer career back to him in the early days of Kinko's. Long story that I might tell one day. :)

In other news I got a new toy to play with: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/mediacenter/mediacenterdvr/LGguide.mspx

I haven't had a lot of time to look at it yet, but I'm pretty excited to give it a try. We've been hearing about them at work for about a year or so. I'll post my thoughts here as I have them.

I'm giving Andy's eulogy so I'm off to write that - and might be offline for a week or so. I"ll try to post again before I leave for the week.
