Hey everyone.. literally 20 21 minutes ago I pulled in from a long-ass drive back from VA... many reasons why it took much, much longer than expected, but anywho... just wanted to say (relating to this thread, kinda) that I visited Ben's Chili Bowl on U Street in DC, and that has a hell of a lot more atmosphere (IMHO) than a lot of places I know of in Boston, combined... and their chili dogs are great, too.

Oh yes, and Bill Cosby eats there free.

From yesterday (well, two days ago, really):

You realize that Helmann's and Best Foods are the same. right?

You learn something new every day, WH...

Vesele Vanoce, everyone!

My mother, sister, brother-in-law, nieces and I already had Christmas on the 24th... will be going to brother-in-law's family's house for their Christmas (on the 25th) in... oh 12 hours. This does not mean I'm necessarily getting presents both days. I actually know I'm not getting (or giving) anything between myself and that extended family... more on that in another post in, um, 20 hours or so.

Thanks!

I was thinking more along the lines of "pull over the side of the road and have a quick Kodak moment", though.

That'd be a little difficult on the highway, but if I ever need to stop for gas/food/other stuff I might as well take a little leisure time and snap a few shots.

Hey guys,

I'm going to be heading down to Virginia (by car, from MA) in a few days (26th) to visit a schoolmate, and will be sure to take my camera for photos... any points of interest there or along the way? Any recommended eating establishments?

Any sections of road to avoid due to heavy traffic, etc?

Everybody here f'ing hates the first AVP movie while I found it to be decent.

Hey now, I actually enjoyed it as a brainless action flick.

Looking forward kinda to the sequel, too...

PHJF: Actually, considering the party wanted me to decide, being that it was my birthday party, I swung my vote toward NT2 because I realized there were a couple members of the group who definitely did NOT want to see Sweeney Todd.

I do, however, disagree with Enahs in that I think I would have enjoyed Sweeney Todd on the big screen, if I'd go see it with friends or by myself... plus the crowd "fun" factor would weigh in on that one, too (think "Rocky Horror Picture Show", or "Freddy vs Jason").

Just my two cents ($10?).

3. National Treasure 2 Dec 23, 2007, 02:33 Dan =0)
 
Saw it tonight with friends for my "surprise" birthday party tonight - apparently the number of friends who were actually coming was revealed to me by one of my roommates in a slip-up a couple days ago - after dinner, and I must say that the Goofy short that preceded it had me roaring in laughter.

The movie itself was okay, though Diane Krueger was hot and classy-looking as usual.

So, I'm replying to my own post...

Anywho (yes, it's 10:30pm or so), memory's installed - bumped up to 768MB, and significantly faster. Whatever I did inside the case blew away whatever Windows remembered about ANY of the hardware, so it's in process of reinstalling all drivers...

28. Re: Compy Question Dec 21, 2007, 20:14 Dan =0)
 
Hi guys,

Thanks to Enahs for the suggestions last night regarding the computer - I'm on it right now (XP Home SP2 w/ 256 MB of RAM.. ugh... I told the family that owns it what to get 6 months ago for RAM, and they haven't gotten it!).

The video card in question is a Radeon 9200 type card from XFX with VGA and S-Video out. There's also an onboard Intel graphics chipset, but they're not using that at all. Anyway, I tried updating the vid driver for the XFX through WinUpdate (bad idea) and it turns out that it only updates the primary driver (updated to 2006...), and not the one for the secondary (still stays at 2004 vintage). I'm rolling back the drivers now, and am going straight to the original source - ATI - to see if there's anything more recent...

I did test RealPlayer playback with their most recent item having been played... one of the Czech TV channels - NOVA (no relation whatsoever to the science program). I would even go so far as to say that it is not at all safe for work - at least in the US - due to extreme lack of clothing, and an extreme abundance of... positions.

Guess I caught the channel at the right time. It'd be a little after 2am there, I think.

I am convinced that an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model BB rifle with a compass in the stock makes the perfect gift.

For me, it would be a personal music studio with a full version of Ableton Live, with a variety of analog and digital synthesizer hardware tossed in.

20. Compy question Dec 20, 2007, 21:38 Dan =0)
 
So, I'm going to quite possibly NOT visit this family I know tomorrow if I can talk them over the phone about how to display video on their (non-HD) TV (or tell them it's not possible) from their basic Dell Dimension system that just happens to have TV-Out, but the situation is thus:

Dell Dimension 2400 (I think?) system has 15" LCD monitor attached via the old D-sub connector, and S-video out is connected to one of the inputs to the TV in their living room.

I'm unclear on this part, but from what I understood, they bought some subscription to watch Czech programs over the 'net via RealPlayer, which displays happily on their LCD, but when switching over to their TV - or if both LCD and TV are displaying the screen otherwise fine, say, like a web page that has an embedded video - the square where the video would be on the TV is completely black. I have to note that, obviously, the TV is displaying at a lower and weird res such that the text and lines come out "fuzzy", though this hasn't stopped my own iBook from playing videos on their TV...

Now, I told them I'd stop by, but I'm unsure if this is even doable due to some weird form of DRM or another video problem. I know that, since last time I was there several months ago, the drivers were up-to-date, but I don't see how the possibility of even a slightly out-of-date driver would prevent the basic concept of playing video of that sort.

All "RealPlayer sucks"-type comments aside, anyone have any suggestions, or know if this should even work? Thanks in advance!

Thanks guys...

I celebrated by having chinese sausage and udon noodles for dinner, after helping my mother's old former neighbor around her shiny new iMac, and shoveling the front and back steps to my apartment tonight. Yay!(?)

Now just listening to music at half speed for the hellofit, 'cause I can... ("Gong" by Sigur Ros).

EDIT: I'm in Live Chat now if anyone wants to converse there.

From now on, on my future birthdays (such as when I turn 31 a year from today), I will specifically request no chocolate, cookies or candy in abundance, as I've received waaaaay too much of all three today and during the past three weeks...
