Feed My Zune!

Ok, I know I've been complaining about my Zune to just about anyone who would listen...The inability to sync content with Windows Media Player, the poor battery life, blah, blah, blah... Well, at least one of my complaints appears to be resolved - the inability to subscribe to podcasts and have the content automatically loaded on my Zune.

In fact, I was just griping about this very fact earlier tonight (while also accepting an offer to trade a chandelier for an iPod mini). Then I come home, my complaint fresh on my mind, and plug in "video podcast zune" (my version of a hail-mary search) in Google and what to my wondering eyes should appear, no, not a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer, but something called FeedYourZune (interestingly enough at feedyourzune.com, go figure).

Well, I've just downloaded it, but I'm not sure I want it on my laptop, so I think I'll probably try it on my workstation first. (All 300+GB of my MP3s are housed on a dedicated server - for the obvious reason that they don't fit on anything else, duh! - and my Zune is primarily linked to my workstation so it can take advantage of the gigabit network connection when transferring content.)

All I can say at this point, is that I'm so excited that I might actually be able to get some decent video sync'ed to my Zune that I can barely contain myself! In fact, the only reason I'm writing this on my laptop is that due to a power outage earlier this week (thanks DP&L - I appreciate that...) one of my HP NetServers is beeping every second and I haven't had the energy to fix it. I think I've figured out what it is, but I need to reboot it and check some of the bios or NetRaid settings and I don't have a monitor or keyboard hooked up to it at the moment. I know, I really should have a KVM, but I just haven't gotten around to it...(although, someone once did give me a round tuit, but I'm pretty sure I lost it. Anyone know where I can find another?)

That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it...

Desktop TD 1.5 Addiction - In Full Force

Okay, I've been struggling with Desktop Tower Defense . I've been frustrated, I've been thrilled. As Debra says "its all about hopes and dreams, hopes and dreams." Well, quite frankly, I've had a lot of dreams about completing just the medium level. And up until today, they've been just that, dreams. I'm now please to say that I've graduduated. I've completed all 50 phases of the medium level! Hurray for me! (Lets face it, I'm sure you're not saying that, so let me have a little self-congratulatory praise for a minute...sheesh.) Although, even though I completed all the phases, my score still doesn't rival some of the board leaders. I'm a little confused...I only let 4 creeps through, yet my score is a couple of thousand less than the leaders. How is that possible? Can anyone clue me in? Anyway, I figured I'd share my maze with you, although - after looking at hundreds of other mazes, I've come to realize its less abou

A Year in the Making...

Toward the end of last summer, Debra approached me with an idea. Usually, her ideas are pretty scary and involve the purchase of a mini-horse. (Thanks for that, Amanda!) However, this time, I have to admit that I got wrapped in her idea, and as usual, made it a much more complicated affair. Put simply, Debra wanted a video that she could air on FlyerTV, UD's campus channel, that would provide some publicity for her office, the Office of Community Standards & Civility . She wanted something subtle and funny. One afternoon, we took the video cam out and spent about two hours driving around in the setting sun filming for her video. Yes, I did make her sign a release - no illegal, hidden spycams here, no siree bob! Then the editing began. That's pretty much what delayed the release of her video until today. I happened to be cleaning out some old hard drives and found the 75% completed video and decided it was high time that I actually finished it for her. I hope I've manage
