Happy Thanksgiving

Have a fantastic turkey day, America!

How COOL is THIS!?

screen capture of the movie ROCKY Sling Media – is a device that you connect to your (cable / vcr / satellite tv receiver) and your router – allowing you to watch your tv from anywhere with internet access. Log in with your “top secret” user name and password watch what’s playing at home. (Yes, you can even change the channels and set up TiVo wish lists and watch TiVo recorded programs too!)

The Makers of the Sling Media box have released the PUBLIC BETA of the Sling Media Player for Mac users! This was ‘our’ gift to ourselves last Christmas — (primarily, Mr. SlimeyApple wanted one since he travels alot and is a xp pee cee user).

I signed up (with a few thousand other people) to be a Beta Tester for the (in development at the time) Mac version of the sling media player. I waited. and Waited. and checked and checked and gave up.

Last week, while away for work — Mr. SlimeyApple sent me a link – to the public beta of the software. Works very well! I am excited.

Cross-Continental Stalking Gone Right

I have this crazy haibt of watching movies (on satellite tv) which are also sitting on my DVD shelf. Typically we say “Don’t we OWN THIS?” and continue to watch it on the television anyway.

When I was channel-zipping (you get about 3 seconds to hook me) I stopped on The Goonies. For the most part, most of the kids-growed-up in this movie have remained in the Hollywood spotlight, many of them might have faired better to follow the lead of CHUNK. (ah, the beloved chubby comic relief that movies seem to have.)

Personally, I have always held a place in my heart for his character in this movie. I was wondering “where is he now?” and entered “goonies chunk” into a goo-search.

When it comes to search results, much like my channel-zipping habits – you have a small window of opportunity to GRAB me as I skim over the words on the LCD screen of my Powerbook.

That is where I found this piece, written in 2004, which I could not help but continue to read beyond the first “page”.

Bravo. I loved this article posting.
