I like my xbox. It's fun to play games on. I'm even debating on whether I should upgrade to the xbox 360. I am not, however, a Bill Gates fan. I upgrade to the latest office/OS only when I absolutely need to. I try and keep as many virus scanners/spyware scanners around to try and clean up the security holes that they leave behind. Bill Gates though, is a visionary. I just finished reading an article over on IGN about next gen DVD.
The latest scuttlebut is that the Hollywood Studios are pushing to require that Blu-Ray and HD-DVDs use HDMI or DVI connections to see the full resolution of the movie. They want this for the copy protection benefits that those formats can employ. If you don't use the HDMI or DVI the disc will play at a lower resolution (sub 720p).
My TV only has 1 HDMI spot and it's being used for cable. I don't know of to many TV's that have more than 1 HDMI. If it's a choice between DVD or cable I'm going to have the hi res on cable (only because I don't watch DVDs that often). I think a lot of people feel the same way and I feel bad for the format because it's not going to be widely adopted. People are going to go through a downloadable subscription model (like on demand) and that means Bill Gates was right. He had the 360 come with a normal dvd drive because he wanted to skip the Next Gen disc and go straight to download.
I just hope you can't get a virus from the movie.

My wonderful wife really wanted me to have my potluck though, so she is currently in the process of making me deviled eggs, sliced ham, and I'm not sure what else.
One of the many reasons why I love her so.. she's always trying to do things to make me happy.

The first potluck I can remember was when my family visited the Sebastian CoC for the first time. They were having their annual fish fry. Tom Sawyer (I swear that was his name) would take his boat to lake Okeechobee every year and fish for a solid day or two. The day after (which would be Saturday) the church men would go and skin/fillet all the fish. Then on Sunday Tom would fry all the fish as well as make hush puppies. This was on top of all the other pot luck type items.
Maybe it was a bit naive but I had just assumed that a potluck was a CoC special. Apparently it's a church wide thing (which I'm very thankful for). I wonder if certain food items cross (non)denominations as well..such as the fruit salad, sliced ham, deviled eggs, of course the Holy bird a bucket of KFC chicken.
Shayna doesn't get to excited for them. That's ok..just more for me.
Another other timeless potluck dishes I missed?

I thought for sure Foxy was going to meet her maker when those two met on the battlefield.
He defeated the Orange Cat Next Door during his brief stint in Fredericksburg, VA using his cat like reflexes, and stealth capabilities to pounce on the intruding cat.
Who knows what other numerous conquests he has had during that 9 months. I thought for sure Sneaky was the kind of cat that ruled the roost. With his white cat-armour he protected this house.
The next victim in the long line would be Bandit (his birth name is Bullet. Shayna refused to change the name to Wizard at my request..but she did see the humor. Ike was a short lived name..in fact Bandit was officially dubbed last night in a ceremony that involved a 77 Pontiac Transam Firebird, Excalibur, and late night cat nip).
So as we opened up the cage to let Sneaky have his way with the latest foe, I was nervous. I was worried that we might have to call the adoption agency and let them know their cat lasted all of 40 minutes. But as we opened the door the most amazing thing happened. Sneaky looked at Bandit, Bandit looked at Sneaky, and then Sneaky bolted like a lightening flash to the bedroom to hide under the bed.
Mighty warrior indeed.
For those of you looking for the latest in distractions..here's blueprint. Fun, yet frustrating

We were thinking the name of Ike but I don't know if we are going to stick with it. If there are any ideas please shout em out.

The Olympics started this weekend. I was bummed that Apollo Ohno didn't make the finals in short track. I was glad to see us get the gold in half pipe.
Does it seem like we're just adding events so we can get more medals? That sounds easier than trying to beat the other countries.

It seems like MNF has always had some jokes in the booth to keep people entertained. All they actually do is say stupid stuff (a la Dennis Miller). I really like Tony Kornheiser though. He is funny, and he knows a little something about sports (although not as much as others).
I hope it works out.
Does anyone else get self conscious when they reach checkout? I was purchasing some milk, shredded lettuce, cream horns, and Catalina dressing. It looks like a meal in itself (although a very poor one..one fit for a bachelor). I wonder what the checkout people think or if they even bother paying attention.
For instance if you just purchase some preparation H then the checkout person has got to know about your business. Do they talk about it?
Check out person 1:Hey Frank, I had this really hot girl come through my check out lane. Most beautiful girl I've ever seen.
Check out person 2:That's Hot
Check out person 1: The downside is that all she purchased was some preparation H and beano
Check out person 2: That's Not
Are you self conscious now?
Last night on Scrubs there was an Air Band. This is so awesome. Who wants to make an air band? (bonus points on if you know who the drummer is (he's only been in 2 movies))
Enough jibber jabber. Go burn something up

For those of you who like figuring out the movie where the actors have been taken out. This will be to easy.
So the Super Bowl hasn't even happened yet and already the Broncos are viable trade options for Terrell Owens and Ricky Williams. Shanahan is determined to trade away our second 1st round pick.
