Oh TiVo, how you’ve failed me… I’ve been a pretty loyal TiVo customer for over 10 years. I originally got a Direct TV TiVo back in 2003-ish days, then later got a Series 3 TiVo HD in 2008 when I got married. My wife also became a big fan of TiVo, and we ended up being filmed for some commercials for TiVo in 2009 (just talking about different features. The videos …

UPDATE: CustomSLR will now ship out $125 backer’s C-Loop and Glide Strap products! So here I am in November 2011. I’ve been traveling and shooting photography quite a bit for my new job as a Community Manager at ASTRO Gaming. Taking shots of Pro Gamers, company booths, and just the interactions between the gaming audience at major events like Penny-Arcade Expo, E3, and MLG tournaments. I hear about a new …

Someone recently posted on the ASTRO Gaming Forums informing us that he was licking his controller cable before inserting it into his MixAmp for a better connection… It so reminded me of the weird “viral” happenstance of my youth. It’s the classic example of how my fellow youth of the 80s ruined their Nintendo Entertainment Systems. Backstory: The NES had some inherit fault with it, where after about 2-3 years …

So I got my Gmail account back in 2004 (6/23/2004) when it was still in the Invite only Beta stages. It’s been close to 7 years with a total of over 100,000 emails in my “All” folder. Google’s been constantly giving more and more room to Gmail users (Starting at 1Gb, jumping to 2Gb, and has still blossomed to the 7.569Gb I have today), yet I’m already using 61% …

History of the Onza: So it’s been nearly a year from the first announcement of Razer‘s entrance into the console gaming market with two new peripherals for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console. At CES 2010, they announced (and had a working demo unit) of the Onza controller, and a 5.1 surround sound headset named the Chimera. Both their products kept getting pushed back, and it wasn’t until January 2011 that they …

Blearg. Time for a reformat of this old system. My HD has been acting up ever since I bought it, so it’s about time that I chunk this sucker and reformat. Hopefully it’ll fix all the problems. =) If not, grrrr, maybe it’s the video card I have. Been backing up all my files today with my burner. My audio recordings took up 3 cds!!!!! insane, course it’s all still …

Wow, nice product they have (avalon). Unfortunately they don’t have one in stock (not that I would buy one right now), but it certainly was nice. It riches the tones of the higher strings, but also the low strings, and everywhere…dunno really how to describe it, but I like it. Hopefully maybe I’ll get one this summer. =) current music: Better is One Day (Live) – Chris Tomlin

Hrm, ok, here goes my nice weekend update. Wow, college people are back! Justin and Clifford got back on Friday Night, Mel came back on Saturday night. I hung out with Cliff on Saturday, and went to go see The Mummy Returns with Lisa, and Ryan. It was an entertaining movie, but had to pay 10$ at the parking lot, but that’s ok, since Lisa got us in for free …

Brent brought up a good point today in a reply that Musicianfriend sells then (at 539$, eeeep) but with a 45-day return policy. Course I would have to pay the shipping back…but I think I’ll wait until summer to buy one, ahhhh. Then all next year it’ll be doing camps and such and ministry to pay it off? lol. Anyways, it was kind of funny that Brent mentioned Musician’s Friend, …

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention over the weekend I put up a cool winamp Shoutcast Server at http://64.81.57.221:8000/ Give it a listen. It’s 24/7 praise and worship (well when it’s up, which is most of the time, except maybe weekends). I don’t have a very big play list right now (only about 10 hours) because about a month ago now, I did something stupid and my hard drive with …
