Gave up on finding a server rack I could afford, and built my own. :-)

Wow, they did remove the incoming stream! :-O

If you're like me you may not have used the Incoming stream very much, but it did serve a purpose and we did use it to see if there were any interesting people following us we hadn't circled back yet.

Considering the Incoming stream was eminently more useful than the "What's Hot" stream or the "Suggested People" Google+ throws at us, this is a page to +1 or circle to show your support for bringing the Incoming Stream back!

Join us, won't you?
As of today, January 12th 2012, Google removed the Incoming Stream - We Want It Back!

So close... I mounted the dying hard drive from the media center into my desktop PC, managed to to get everything copied off onto an external USB backup drive, rebuilt my file server, built a new router/firewall so I can network the file server from the basement, created an install USB stick for OpenELEC, installed it onto another USB stick, booted the media center off of it, changed the sound settings to allow audio over HDMI, rebooted and... now it won't POST. I still have the hail-mary shot of resetting the CMOS if I can find some documentation somewhere on how to do that... but I'm thinking it's game over for saving my little media center. :-(

Whooo!! After numerous attempts to reset the CMOS, I removed and reseated all the memory modules... low and behold, my Zotac motherboard sprang back to life!! Not sure how a memory module could come unseated with the little clamp thingies they have now, but whatever... on to getting sound over HDMI to work!

Anyone know where I can pick up a sub-200w power supply for a reasonable price that doesn't suck?

Did anyone manage to snag one of the first 10k of the Raspberry Pi boards?

Kader Arif, the guy in charge of reviewing ACTA for the EU Parliament, resigned in disgust. It kind of flies in the face of ACTA supporters claiming opposition to ACTA is based on miss-information, doesn't it?

"The conclusion is simple: either ACTA is useless, or it is a threat."

Used my first custom SQL Server profiler trace today to track down a pesky connection issue. I can't believe I've never had to use one before now.

*A Cow based Economics Lesson;

SOCIALISM
You have 2 cows.
You give one to your neighbor.

COMMUNISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and gives you some milk.

FASCISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and sells you some milk.

NAZISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and shoots you.

BUREAUCRATISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both, shoots one, milks the other, and then throws the milk away.

TRADITIONAL CAPITALISM
You have two cows.
You sell one and buy a bull.
Your herd multiplies, and the economy grows.
You sell them and retire on the income.

ROYAL BANK OF SCOTLAND (VENTURE) CAPITALISM
You have two cows.
You sell three of them to your publicly listed company, using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with an associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax exemption for five cows.
The milk rights of the six cows are transferred via an intermediary to a Cayman Island Company secretly owned by the majority shareholder who sells the rights to all seven cows back to your listed company.
The annual report says the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more.
You sell one cow to buy a new president of the United States , leaving you with nine cows.
No balance sheet provided with the release.
The public then buys your bull.

SURREALISM
You have two giraffes.
The government requires you to take harmonica lessons.

AN AMERICAN CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows.
Later, you hire a consultant to analyze why the cow has dropped dead.

A FRENCH CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You go on strike, organize a riot, and block the roads, because you
want three cows.

A JAPANESE CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk.
You then create a clever cow cartoon image called a Cowkimona and market it worldwide.

You decide to have lunch.

A SWISS CORPORATION

You arrest the newsman who reported the real situation.

AN INDIAN CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You worship them.

A BRITISH CORPORATION
You have two cows.
Both are mad.

AN IRAQI CORPORATION
Everyone thinks you have lots of cows.
You tell them that you have none.
No-one believes you, so they bomb the ** out of you and invade your country.
You still have no cows, but at least you are now a Democracy.

AN AUSTRALIAN CORPORATION
You have two cows.
Business seems pretty good.
You close the office and go for a few beers to celebrate.

A NEW ZEALAND CORPORATION
You have two cows.
The one on the left looks very attractive.
