Geek Paintball

Meerkat Manor returns

Meerkat Manor is coming back! After Animal Planet seemed to drop the show, it's great to see not only season 4, but a new special!

It all starts 2008May25 with Meerkat Manor: The Story Begins. It looks like that's a restaging of Flower's youth. I wonder if the delay was due to the meerkat actors being on a sympathy strike with the writers guild. After the movie is a special on the making of the movie.

Feuerzangenbowle 2007

Due to plumbing issues we will not be showing the film this year. Ja, ja, ich weiß, "Wir haben aber keine Bauarbeit." Well, believe me, we have some Umbauarbeit.

All is not lost. AC4GC has invited me to make Feuerzangenbowle at their Christmas party. The party includes kids, so if you bring some please also bring gifts for the Weihnachtsmann's bag. He'll be there around 18:30.

The first Bowle will be lit up right around party kickoff at 17:30. Depending on demand, more might be made.

ogg vorbis and bluetooth in a PMP!

The Insignia Pilot is a great, little portable music player that does ogg vorbis and has bluetooth!

ogg vorbis and the in dash NS-C5111 car stereo

At the end of 2006 I went into Best Buy with a few storage devices with ogg vorbis and flac tracks on them. I tried several units in the car audio system and found only one that played the ogg vorbis tracks on every medium it could use. It turned out to be the house brand, Insignia NS-C5111, which plays ogg vorbis off CD, USB thumb drive and SD card. Outstanding. I bought it and had Best Buy install it.
