ePaper takes a step forward.

Damn this is cool. New electronic paper displays video too. Imagine the video game possibilities.

This is so wrong. So very very wrong.

TiVo-like Device for Clie Handhelds

Clie Video Recorder Available Soon. Sony has announced a Tivo like device, that records television and video onto a memory stick in a format optimized for Clie handhelds. The VR100K Video Recorder accessory can record hours of programming and the recorded videos can be viewed on a TV, PC or anywhere the handheld goes.

Coffee x3.

Some say when you hit 13, you are a man. Well I'm three times the man now I used to be (tomorrow is especially momentous for that occasion). Well apparently being woken up three plus times a night plus getting an average of five of sleep can drive you to drink... coffee that is. Never really wanted it or needed it before but I'm slowly taking the plunge. I'll keep you posted to see how I react to it.

I've managed to get my Pentium Pent4 2.4c up to 3.2Ghz... amazing. I then pulled it down to 3.0 and then upped my memory to 250MHz... If you want to see all the gory details, check out my status report which is an output of a program called CPU-Z. If you have any comments, please let me know. Thanks to the folks are ExtremeOverclocking and Overclocking.com for their guidance! -- Joshua

Dead Like Me.

Thanks to ComCast on demand, I can now watch all the episodes of Showtime's Dead Like Me series. It's really quite good. I'm up to episode 8.

Forums... no, not Penthouse Forum.

I decided to set up a message board to further expand discussions of random things that are associated with me. Narcissistic? Well it is Joshua.com, eh? Anyway, check them out in their early and generic state and feel free to contribute, ask questions, or just cause trouble.

Who wants $100?

I'm going to officially open a contest to redesign Joshua.com, stylesheet and all. Got a few minutes on your hand? Download the CSS file and make my site look new and exciting. If yours is the one I choose to use, I'll send you $100. It's that simple! I hope to make a decision by September 30th, but if nothing good comes in, well, I'll just wait. (The main page should also be downloaded. Good luck!)

Faster Faster ComCast!

CNET, and other media outlets, is reporting that ComCast will be doubling the speed of their broadband offering (download speed that is...) by the end of the year. Rock on!

And the text.

Here's the text listing the cameos. Yes, I know I could have edited the original post. This was more fun. :-)

Oh, just found a link to the IBM Linux advertisement.

Check it out. Share your thoughts.

Great Linux advertisement.

Anyone see the Linux advertisement from IBM during the Sox (and probably others) game today? It was really cool. Tough day for Boston sports today but a great weekend for the Sox regardless.

Bruce @ Fenway Tonight.

Awesome. Nothing else to say.

Ever play Snood?

I love this game on the Mac and the PC... but on the Gameboy Advance... let me be blunt it sucks. It sucked so bad I wrote a review of it on Amazon a while ago and I just noticed it was the Spotlight Review. Neato. Don't buy this game for the Gameboy... you'll just be disappointed.

It's 'TiVo-like' PC Software.

The nice thing about SnapStream was also that after you recorded a show, it was a movie file on your PC's hard drive. You could make a DVD of your favorite show's season, you could transfer it to other computers for watching later, or you could even stream it across your network to outside viewers (watch a show at work, streamed from your home PC) though most home networks aren't that fast. After watching TiVo and ReplayTV cave to Hollywood's unrealistic demands, it's nice to see a software package that lets users freely do whatever they want with content and doesn't block legitimate and fair uses.
