Darth Gets Doctored

Darth has been earning his keep the last two weeks by hauling boxes to the new hacienda way the Frak over in Moorhead. Up until Saturday that is, when the alternator decided “Meh, I don’t want to do this anymore.

In to the Shop he went, and $225 + a day later we’re back on the road hauling worldly possessions.

Since my CRS is getting worse, what with my advancing age, I’m going to blog future vehicle repairs. I know, how exciting. I got goose bumps.

My Shortlist

I want to get these done in the next few weeks;

XBMC Media Server, a.k.a The Magic Elf Box-

Put the better leftover parts together, buy a IR remote and wireless PCI card.

Do some bodywork on the old case to pretty it up. It will be in the living room, after all.


Lifehacker's Ultimate XBMC Guide.

PC IR Remote setup.

DIT HD Antenna.

Mount a keyring camera to my shooting glasses.

What would be cool – a bracket to mount the camera to any glasses.

Geek Desktop

I had a small nerdgasm when I first laid eyes on this.

I wonder if it’s a resource hog.

Mad Chimp


I’m running a few virtual machines, and I try to give each a unique background wallpaper to ease ID’ing each instance. I couldn’t find one for my MadMonkey so I fired up Gimp and whipped this one out.

Turned out pretty good, huh?
