Mira Sorvino gets ready to squeeze one off!

    We received the Hauppage PVR yesterday, but we haven't had time to really test it yet. We did a quick and dirty test, VCR-style, from the set top box. That actually came out really spiffy. I can see that the rendering is going to be beastly. A 2 minute clip took like 15 minutes to convert to a WMV file. Time permitting, I want to do an S-video test today, possibly of one of our Halo lowlights.
    Reibo hit the optometrist yesterday to get an eye exam and a new pair of specs. Since it was a late appointment, we went by the local pub to eat and see barmaid extraordinaire, Peaches. We were really disappointed that she wasn't working. So, we had a quick bite and a couple of brews and bailed. We'll be picking his specs up this afternoon and hopefully combining that with a resupply mission.
    One good piece of news was getting a call for a job interview with NanoTech up in Albany. Assuming I get the job, my plan is to get the cheapest studio I can get up there to stay during the rotational work week. I sure don't want to commute daily, if I can avoid it. I already have a bunch of ex-work mates up there, so I hope I'll be able to get some leads.
    What effect that might have on the blog, I can't tell at this point. I've had the luxury of spare time; that might be in short supply once I start working again. My tentative plan is to take at least my netbook and try doing updates with that, depending on whether I can get an internet connection. It'll be a pain, but it's that or nothing. I'm not hauling anything up North. Nada.
