Backpacking around the world

Sunday, July 20th, 2008

After college I took a backpacking trip to Europe with my friend Tom. It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had and really made me want to travel more. That trip was full of feelings, experiences, and problems that only other world backpackers would understand. Last night while watching TV I came across a shortened version of this documentary A Map for Saturday that brought back all of my memories from that trip. Maybe to help with my dizzying array of choices I’m facing right now I should just take a year off and do something like this guy did? Tom are you free?

MythTV Gone?!

Wednesday, July 16th, 2008

This past week I turned off my MythTV box for the first time in months so that I could do some cleaning and prepare for a new TV. Much to my surprise, when I tried to turn the machine back on it wouldn’t power up!

I’ve tried replacing the power supply and clearing the CMOS but neither changed anything :(. So for now I am without a PVR of any kind and it’s really messing with me. I had completely forgotten how irritating it is to have to mold your schedule to the TV producers idea of when shows should be on.

On another note, Hockey Month is now over (thanks for reminding me Preston!).
