Last week, I discovered a really great Linux distribution. Geexbox is a full standalone media player. It's a boot CD based on Linux which allows you to watch movies or listen to music. It supports most formats, such as MPEG, AVI, DivX, XviD, Ogg/Vorbis (Ogm, Ogg), RealMedia, MP3, DVD, VCD and Audio CD. This is only a 6MB ISO file and it also supports remote controls !

I'm looking forward to seeing Alabama tonight at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin. My wife is from their hometown and this will be the fifth time I've seen them live. We're going with three other couples, so it should be a hoot.

I first moved to the Austin area in January of 1993. When I got here, there were no professional sports teams. Now there are several. The Austin Icebats (Hockey), The Austin Wranglers (Arena Football)and The Round Rock Express, (Minor League Baseball). I've been to one Wranglers game, two Icebats games, and countless Express games. They are every bit as exciting as their major league counterparts.

Today, as we often do, my coworkers and I ordered Chinese food from a local place that delivers. The food was very good, as usual, but then I read my fortune cookie. The fortune said "You will move to a wonderful new home within the year". I turned it over and saw an ad for Hendrix Financial Services at 713-669-9900. I searched for that company name in Houston and saw no matches. I then did a search for that phone and found that it's some Web Designer. Please join me in letting the world know that we don't want Spam in our Chinese food. The responsible party can be found on this web page. Let Alex know. You can reach him either via email or telephone.

I've changed my mind, since my last post on the subject. I have decided on the Audiovox D1708. I have found that it is available from Sam's Club for $199.86. That's cheaper than I could find on shopper.com . They also sell a 3 year warranty for $39.85, which isn't bad.
