Live from the 24

Went shopping at the mall all day with tony and the hos. He got us the roku and we scrambled to try and link the roku to ufc.tv for the big fight tonight but the stupid server for ufc.tv went down right after I paid $50 for the fight. It was so disappointing because 30 minutes later I realized I could have just watched it live on youtube for the same price and paid with my Google wallet instead of having to sign up for the stupid ufc.tv account, put in my credit card info, etc. They better refund me.

The whole nightmare of trying to link my ufc.tv account to the roku made me realize I can't work with it.Tommorow, I am going to trade it in for a Logitech Revue Google TV box. There is just no way I can type with a wiimote like controller and the revue means I can develop android apps for the TV.

It was nice to see all my good buddies in the same place for once even if we didn't get to see 600 lbs of fighting.

We fell in live with a gay man's face

(E:lilho) loves the Rihanna song, "we fell in live in a desperate place." but she decided to mix up the title and zooey drew it out.

Too much salt

Considering we have had like one inch of snow this whole winter,the amount of salt used everywhere seems excessive. Its like a crusty salty wonderland.

The New Android Estrip App

I finished a new version tonight. It works great on the nook with gingerbread now. Gingerbread enables bluetooth on the nook color which makes me question why the device did not originally enable the bluetooth chip that was obviously inside. I was able to pair it with my apple bluetooth keyboard the way I do with my ipad. The ipad is pretty great but the nook is so much more portable. Its large enough to have a lot of screen space but small enough to be jammed in some big coat or jeans pockets. I only wish it had its own 3g chip the way that the ipad does although I guess tethering with the phone is actually a better deal because it does not require an extra account or monthly fee.

Here is what it looks like on the nice big nook screen.

Version 1.23 had a bug that forced the app to quit on reload. If you are having issues make sure you are on 1.24. Check the market and see if there is an update. If so update it.

Texting Gloves

One problem with the move from stylus driven resistive touch screens to capacitive finger driven ones was winter and glove covered fingers. The problem exists no more with new gloves that transmit your finger energy through the pointer and thumb. So glad I found these as I was getting sick of using my nose.

HP Bloatware

I got my parents an HP computer for christmas. It is unbelievable how much bloatware comes with Windows 7. I spent about 45 minutes uninstalling just to make it stop asking me to buy crap. Its funny because some of the stuff doesn't even exist anymore like HP webOS tablets. I love how the welcome page thanks me for purchasing a HP webOS tablet when this is a desktop windows 7 computer.

The price of wheat grass at the lexington coop

And I though them charging $4.95 for a softball size cauliflower was outrageous...

Wheat grass prices at the coop blow my mind. $9.99 for 4oz and $19.95 for a pound. 4oz is a small ziplock bag full. The tortoises could eat it all in about 90 seconds.

I actually don't understand how wheat grass, which grows so easily, can cost more per pound than steak. What the hell is going on?

Bug Based Candy

I was at the candy shop on elmwood looking for some gifts when saw these bug based candies. I remember my cousin from AZ getting me one of these as a kid. I never ate. Does anyone really like these or are they purely for gag gifting.
