Weekend - WooHoo!! @Saturday, September 30, 2000 - 21:46:19 -
Spent the morning reading, the afternoon cleaning. I even watched MTV they had some new video on TV, Robbie Williams Rock DJ the video. I couldn't believe it first the guy gets naked then he starts peepling off his skin and his muscles. This was way to gr aphic, and it was on a saturday afternoon. I guess I am getting old. I got to see the Madonna, Ali G video. Very funny stuff, I wish his stuff was on DVD instead of just PAL VHS tapes. Photo search engine

I figuired out why I was out of my head yesterday. I took 2 pink pill instead of 1 to clear out
my cold symptoms. My wife told me later, duh makes sense now.
I hooked up my Atari 2600 to my entertainment center. Very cool, nothing like being old
and reliving things from when you were are kid. I saw somemore games at goodwill the other
day, but they want 2.99 for each one - doh. I need to get another cradle for my visor, one
at home and one at work. It would make things much simpler.

Divx @Monday, September 25, 2000 - 00:48:37 - tu
I have been reading about the Divx thing. Pretty amazing stuff. The movie industry has the
same kinda stuff to worry about that the record companies have been dealing with MP3s.
Divx is a hacked mpeg-4 compression scheme. The typical method is decrypt a DVD with
some kind of DeCss program. The next step is coverting the file to Divx with an encoder like
Flaskmpeg. The sound is coverted with an MP3 codec and the video with the Divx codec.
The compression is around 10 or 8 to one. If you were to convert a movie it would probably
fit easily on one cdr. Of course the DeCss code and all programs that use it have been ruled
illegal in the courts. It has all been made a crime to link to the program. The main reason
people claim to be doing all of this is the DVD standard only works on Win9x and Macs OS.
So people Linux, BeOS etc.. have thrown alot of effort into creating all this software.

Bush dyslexic ??
Another story of bush being dyslexic and Here

It also points out that many famous people have done perfectly fine with it.
Neil Bush, Georges younger brother has been diagnosed as dyslexic.
I guess it doesn't really matter but if he needed help with it he should get help.

Now some of the funnier goof ups quoted in the articles.

"Reading is the basics for all learning,"
"Put food on your family," and
"The senator cannot have it both ways.
He can't take the high horse and then claim the low road."

America as the world's ''pacemakers'' instead of ``peacemakers.''
"economically vile hemisphere"
On the campaign trail, Bush has called himself the First Lady of Texas
and told working moms he knows it's hard "to put food on your family."
Massacring the words "tariffs" and "trade barriers," he has vowed to "knock down terriers."

Silly Republican Ad @Tuesday, September 12, 2000 - 11:50:54 - tu
Republican TV Ad is making some news for a possible subliminal TV Ad.
Words flash on the screen to echo the announcer's message:
``The Gore prescription plan: Bureaucrats decide.''
As the announcer says ``Bureaucrats decide,'' the word ``rats,''
in large capital letters, flashes on and off the
screen just as the phrase ``Bureaucrats decide,'' appears.

I watched the video of it and it is pretty crazy.
They claim its rats as in bureaucrats, why didn't they add the c or something.
They flash text over the ad twice the first you can't read any of it.
The second time RATS jump right out at you.

Pretty sleaze or stupid one or the other.

Totally Useless has crunched 501+ seti units, thats a whole lotta data. Thats like 200 megs
of data. One of the other machines at work, the speed demon Athlon 600 will be doing packets
now too. That should tear thru some seti units.

My Creative 7160 decoder card is really just a Luxsonor LS220.
I am running the LS220 drivers, they come with a PC-DVD player program.
The pan and scan TV aspect ration thing is fixed by the new
drivers and the DVD playing software is a much better too.

Crash and Burn @Friday, September 1, 2000 - 11:24:42 - tu
I thought netscape crashes were bad. I crashed netscape a couple
times to many this morning so I switched to the Dreaded IE.
Used is for a hour or so, got a Kernel32.dll crash. Ouch.
So I restart the machine and I have lost my display drivers.
16 color 640x480. Reinstalled just fine, but the whole IE
being incontrol of Windows is pretty scary.

I have been hacking away at the DVD stuff. I have the card and drvie working. I am using the
original DVD software player that came with the machine, but the Overlay driver is 15 months
newer. Using the newer dvd player screws up the video output to the computer. I have gotten
the region to open, and I had been able to disable the macrovision. The TV is working correctly
very very nice video out. Three things.
1. I can't seem to get the TV to format anything 16x9 correctly it stretches it to 4:3
2. I can't get mpg files to TV out, but I can rename mpg files to VOB and then TV out =)
3. Trying to find out if any other soft DVD player recognize the Creative TV DVD decoder.
