Any of my readers ever toy around with XBMC?  Wondering how much processing horsepower is needed, what kind of experience you've had with deploying & using it.

I really liked Plex, it has great potential. I like how well it integrates with Roku as well. Definitely a nice setup for streaming. It also seems to use the same backend architecture as serviio. Individual client "types" are customizable with xml files. Although it has no "local" interface that's decent. So, you don't want that box connected to your tv or projector. It all depends on what your goals are ultimately. Like Mike said above. I could talk HT stuff for days, haha. I dedicated about 15 years to it until I built my setup and backed off a little.

Looking at finding the holy grail of websites... minimized hosting cost (doesn't have to be free, but gosh, that WOULD be a bonus), allows me to bring my own domain name (already registered), and has the simplest learning curve ever for administering your own site/blog.  It doesn't have to be super feature-rich (though abilities to upload or pull-in images would be very good), but something that almost anyone could learn to use.  There may be multiple administrators at any one time, and the pool of administrators is likely to evolve roughly once per year.  Small non-profit group of volunteers.  Thoughts?

Punk must have thought he was out-geeking me, trying to explain what 'grep' is and how it works.  *pats head*

Is that so, Dale?  If that's the case, then you must be the author of grep.  YOU were my first exposure to Linux -- Slackware, specifically.  Nice work. :P

Dear @XKCD, I don't exactly know what I'm supposed to wait for.  I think your script is broken.  I'll have to wait for the Cliff's Notes version.

I think you are missing the artistic voice; the message he is hoping you'll glean. You see, life: It's like a sandcastle on the beach, or a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get. So you have to keep investing, like a man building a sandcastle. Or a person artificially augmenting his pageviews.

Slashdot has changed their algorithms so much... I've gone 24hrs without mod points and I'm wondering if something went wrong.

Do you feel like you are lacking some validation? Here you go: "Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job!" :)

Just re-watched episode 5, season 1 of ST:TNG featuring "The Traveler".  Oh, +Wil Wheaton , that really was great fun, but I'm so sorry about what wardrobe did do you with those sweater-things.

Anyone familiar with some modern (and free) DNS services like OpenDNS that would allow me to configure a router to selectively block large categories of sites (social networking, games, etc)?  Is OpenDNS the best way to do it if I'm lazy and cheap?  :)

I gave up being the network police years ago. It's not worth it. They'll always find a way. :)

Just discovered a really neat coding collaboration site called Floobits.  It's even got an integration with Google Hangouts, so you can hang out while everyone looks at the Floobits collaborative coding in the main content.  Pretty cool, and free.  Plugins for Emacs and Sublime editor.  Hoping they make one for Eclipse, too.
Floobits. Cross-editor real-time collaboration. Floobits lets you use your favorite editor to work on the same files as others in real-time. Right now we have a Sublime Text plugin. We're also working...

I'm pretty sure the security holes in Java are just Oracle's excuse to push their stupid McAfee toolbar installer in each update.
