HD DVDs

everyone is going crazy over this. in case you’re a n00b and don’t know, this is the 'processing key' for all HD-DVDs out currently. this means that linux will now have the ability to decode and play HD movies, as well as facilitate the creation of HD-DVD backup warez. this number cannot be copywritten, so feel free to share!

iubi blue pmp

Well I just got my first paycheck, and bought myself a present… an iubi blue (high rez photos here). it’s still not available in the US, but I ordered my from the UK here.

so what is it you ask? It’s an audio/video player/recorder and a logical usb hard drive. As for playback, it will run almost every codec under the sun: MPEG 1, 2, 4 DivX 3.X, DivX 4.X, DivX 5.X, Xvid, WMV9, H.264/MP4, AVI, OGM, WMV 7, 8, MOV, & Real video files! The screen is very bright a clear, and you can see it from almost any angle.

lab :: my first DIY pc

camouflage computer

today was a little too interesting not to write about. I woke up and checked to see if the paint was dry on my new computer. I made 3 camouflage stencils that I used on the entire box (including cd/dvd drives, sound blaster audigy, power buttons, EVERYTHING!). I also cut out a toxic symbol as the case window on the door. after putting all the components in, and a brief battle with some jumper settings, it finally turned on and recognized all the devices.
