Tubin' [Sep. 25th, 2005|12:43 pm]

[Tags|, ]

Went innertubin' down the Russian River yesterday with Dina, Evan, Erin, Tessa, and 6 other folks, mostly from Macromedia (Evan's roommates and friends).

Pretty much the coolest thing I know of, floating down a river/rapids in a tube, with a cooler of beer on its own tube in tow, finding three rope swings and using them all.......

Yeah, that's what every weekend should be.

I'm on a panel tonight at 5pm at Webzine about "$elling out: etc, etc, doing things you love". After that, drinks with chuck, who's in town.

Now that the TV season's started, it's time to get my MythTV box finally setup. The PC-HDTV 3000 drivers have now been in the Linux mainline for months, so it should be less painful this time around.

I ditched plans to get my box working with MythTV in Debian. I'm going to break down and just install the MythTV live CD using FC3 or whatever it uses.

Although if you have better luck than me, let me know...

I was telling the others about this game and they all looked at me like I was on crack!

Really? That was a pretty main stream game.

slightly unrelated, but: i read this online comic about indie kids called questionable content. they referenced katamari. it was almost hilarious. there's a little robot called an AnthroPC who is awesome as well. if you want, you can check it out at http://www.questionablecontent.net.

Let us know how it goes, if you'd be so kind :) I've been putting it off and putting it off, but tivo's pissing me off too much now.

Here in Central Texas, we go tubing on the Guadalupe River or go to Prince Sohms Park and tube there. It is WONDERFUL!! When the children were small but already water safe, we used to go down the river in two huge inner tubes, Claire in Larry's lap and Matt in my lap with a cooler of soda tied behind one of us. On the rivers here, there are trained staff/lifeguards in the water to make sure no one drowns or gets caught in a low hanging branch. The water here would feel a little warm to ya'll but it is just TERRIFIC!

Offtopic for sure, but in your mind, what does Project Comet mean for LiveJournal, being that it combines the "publishing power of TypePad, the community aspects of LiveJournal and the years of insight garnered from Movable Type" and such.

Anything? Nothing?
