Keeping busy

Well I start another step in my fun life today. I try to figure out what classes I should take at college. I am returning to college so I can finish what I started 9 years ago. Well I took a break and I guess I am one of the few that come back from a break. I have a great job I just want a piece of paper that says I know what I am talking about. You know just incase I want to find another place to work.

Today is filled with many little tasks for new software install instructions, and uploading all of that software to the server.

I started copying my music to my computer lastnight now I can play music on my TV with my DMR. I also ordered my ATI TV card and should have to tomorrow. I might install it on Thursday, and start using more of my great digital media system. I really dislike the Windows Media Center because it will not logon to a domain controller.

Maybe Microsoft should look into the professionals that want TV recording PVR functions as well.

A new years means more toys.

Well starting off the last holiday when well and I am glad the holidays are over with. People plan to much stuff for me during the holiday and I never get anything I want to done.

DMR quest complete. I gave up on finding a product that will work with Microsoft's Windows Media Connect software and went with a Hauppage MediaMVP. Now with my ATI All-In-Wonder video card recording my TV shows, I can now watch them on a TV with out having to watch them on Windows media player or the ATI media player that comes with the Video card. And of course I love to live on the cutting edge so I downloaded the Beta Software for the new version of the server software. I didn't even use the CD-ROM that came with the little Digital Media Player. I still haven't gotten it to play internet radio stations yet, but I don't really care about that. Maybe that will be what I play with tonight.
