This is not a “blog.” I hate that term and always have. This is just my page, which I update manually by SSHing to this box and typing all this text in vi. I don’t use any fancy schmancy “content management” stuff, that’s for newbs.
So Christmas has come and gone, I got an Xbox (not 360, which is crap). I used a soft-mod tutorial on it because I have no interest in playing Microsoft’s crappy offerings, and I’m cheap. So I put Xbox Media Center on it and a bunch of emulators, and relived the joy of The Legend of Zelda for NES on my Xbox. I got up to level 5 in a couple of hours. I got a few other emulators running on it, including Xenesis and Surreal64, and I played Zelda64 for a bit as well, though the emulator does some weird stuff with the graphics.
I also decided to put up this Amazon affiliat store crap that I wrote a long time ago that’s just been rotting on my repository machine. Maybe I can make some side cash this way! Some recommended products:
- The Godfather – reading this now, great book.
- Head First Java, 2nd Edition
- Head First Design Patterns
- The Breakfast Club DVD
- Kensington 33164 iPod StereoDock – Got this for someone for
Christmas, it’s fantastic; much better than Apple’s overpriced dock.
- Logitech X-230 Speakers (whitebox) – Got these to go with the iPod dock. The
sound quality is excellent, and I only paid $29 from Amazon.
- Christmas Classics on DVD – Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town, Frosty the Snowman, Frosty Returns and The Little Drummer Boy.
- Canon Digital Rebel XT 8MP Camera – I want this 😦 but it’s too much money.
- Other Rebels
- Nintendo DS Stuff – I got this for someone also and it’s quite fun. Puts the PSP to shame, from what I’ve seen of them both.
