The Line

I’ve been watching this show called “The Line” for 10 episodes now and truly recommend it to any cop drama lover. It’s distinctly Canadian, one of the reasons I like it, but not only is the acting unique (in a good way), but the story also keeps me coming back. Check it out if you get the chance!

BF2: Mine and Mine 2

Even if you don’t play Battlefield 2 you’ll still enjoy these movies. Created entirely in the game and using some hilarious sound tracks and voice overs from such comedies as Monty Python, these are truly entertaining. The first one is quite a bit funnier than the second one, so I actually suggest you watch Mine 2 first and leave the best for last.

It’s Time

It is once again time, this time for good I hope, to quit smoking. It’s been a long while since my last failed attempt but I feel that now I am at a place in time where I am so sick of the habit, so feeling crappy about it, that I’m going to pull through. If anyone would like to donate to the Nicotine patch fund, you can do so below.




Cranky Geeks

John C. Dvorak has a new talkshow on Digital Life TV entitled “Cranky Geeks”.

The format should be familiar — John’s the host, and with three additional cranky guests, they debate the technology issues of the day.

Check out the pilot episode here.

FireAnt: Better than Television

FireAnt is my new application for synchronizing podcasts and video casts. The nicest thing about it is its channel directory and its built-in media player.

FireAnt delivers a rich media experience through a simple to use, unified viewer that lets you watch all types of content without having to worry about which format it is (Quicktime, Windows Media, Real, Flash, MP3, and more).

FireAnt connects your favorite media to a wide variety of portable video players (Sony PSP, Apple iPod, Creative Zen Vision and more!) which gives you the power and flexibility to get media content right onto your portable devices! FireAnt also supports HTTP, Streaming, and BitTorrent downloads, bringing you an easy and efficient way of getting what you want when you want it.

ZenView Command Center Elite

Ok, I want this!

With six 24″ flat panel displays that feature 1920×1200 resolution (5760×2400 combined) and 1000:1 contrast ratio, the ZenView is truly an elite command center. Each panel includes five digital DVI-D inputs, analog RGB/VGA input, and an S-Video input. The only weak link is its price. For $11,999 you can either buy a single large HDTV display or several powerful computers.monitors

Pageflakes – Another startpage??

I thought I was done with these Ajax start pages. I was sure that Netvibes was what I was going to stick with. Well, then someone posted a comment that changed things. Enter Pageflakes. Same ideas as the other ones, little prettier, more features, and the ability to create your own flakes (widgets). Screenshots below:

Netvibes – Personal Homepage

Ok, ok, I’ve been obsessed with these Ajax powered start pages. But I think this one’s a keeper. If for nothing more than a new RSS feed reader. Netvibes has all the common features, RSS reader, to-do lists, weather widget, email checker, and more. They’ve also planned a number of nice features for the future. The layout is not as customizable as Protopage for example, but it’s more stable and reliable. Who knew the French could pull something like this off! Check it out, I highly recommend it.
