Beach Time for ME

July 30, 2008 1:04 pm by christian

I’ve been “down the shore” on Long Beach Island, NJ for a few days and will be here through the end of the week.  As a kid I was taken here by my parents almost every summer, and it remains our relaxation destination of choice.  Nothing like a week of sitting on the beach, playing tennis, and grilling seafood with family and friends, away from the rest of civilization (but somehow not away from the internet…), to recharge the batteries.

CNBC Has Let Me Down

I admit it. I like CNBC.

I like to keep track of how the investments I made for my mother are going (she’s in retirement and with the recent passing of my father, we invested some money to ensure security in her golden years). I spent the better part of the day yesterday trying to figure out how I could get CNBC in the office free and/or cheap. First, I spent hours and hours searching trying to find an online feed. Nada (at least with non-windows media player support). Then it was trying to figure out ways to get it from my house to the office. Slingbox seemed a good choice at first. After all, thats exactly what it’s designed to do. No linux support though. In the end, I have a feeling I will be going the route of mythtv to give this a shot.

Back from the beach.

Well all, I’m back from the beach. South Carolina was a blast. I didn’t quite get my fill of boiled peanuts, but mini-golf (putt-putt), fireworks, & bowling (my highest game ever – 114) were a blast. Once i get things straight and catch up on Logjamming stuff I’ll post some photos!
