Good Thanksgiving?

By | December 2, 2008

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday.  We did.  A lot of food and little sleep with some crappy traveling always makes for a perfect holiday, with free time to have fun or even exercise from home with an amazon balance disc or any other equipment.

On the HTPC front, not much from me.  I did have to reload my primary PC over the weekend, however.  After running a script to fix some registry settings that prevented me from creating new Visual Studio C# projects, I found my system nearly unusable.  A system restore fixed it, but my Windows came back as not genuine…although it was activated.  It did give me a reason to switch to the 64-bit version though.  I got a copy of Vista Ultimate x86 and x64 via a Microsoft survey promotion about a year ago.  I can’t really tell a difference aside from being able to use my entire 4GB of memory now.  I did notice a HUGE difference in network transfers between my 2008 Server x64 and edition of Vista (~35MB/s to ~110MB/s).

I’ve also been working on my applications page.  I have pages outlining my systems and home theater equipment, so I thought I would make an additional page that gives links to the HTPC-related applications that I use along with links to where you can get them.  I may complete it one day this week, but it’s really boring, so we’ll see.  Other than that, myTV has a nice little promotion going on.  Check it out and if you’re in the market for a new TV series plugin, then it may just be for you.
