Denon AVR-4806 -- notably the back and HDMI switching/upconverting... useful for only running one long HDMI cable back to projector, but plugging everything else up up-front. the front isn't so interesting.

HTD 12-channel amp -- archived pic. like twice as cheap as all the other stuff I had previously found, but anything should do fine... just wall speakers.

Blackalicious @Berkeley -- aka how many people can you have open for you and then get onto the stage during the finale. yay hiphop concerts. but blackalicious was good.

MySQL User's Conference 2006 ... did a panel today on scaling out. no slides. just talked. way easier prep/stress than slides. :-)

Would you agree that "the AVR-4806 sets itself apart with lifestyle-enhancing technologies"?

I think you're hating HDCP and not HDMI. (I used to be the same way.)

The good thing about HDMI is it has a lot longer cable length, but is signal-compatible with DVI. (DVI cables tend to use thinner wires and be limited to around 5 meters I guess?)

You must have pretty low standards to enjoy a blackalicious show.

Panel

Do you know if the panel was taped or anything or if there will be a recordong available to we unwashed masses who didn't get to go?

Have you figured out how hackable that Ethernet port is? Can you control everything with some well-known protocol, stream MP3s, etc?

Denon provides docs on the protocol, which is same for serial and for ethernet. How dope is that?
