Finance - part of the financial empire

Finance, money, gold bullion, stocks, bonds ..... money been meaning to for a long time... What you might ask, get more of it, like the capitalistic nature of america, no expand the financial information I have on my web site ....

ING Direct - lots of accounts awsome and easy

I have opened a ing direct account a few years ago, but didn't realize till recently how awsome the site and service are.

3.00% interest a year where, citibank savings was giving .8 percent interest, it's practically triple.

I like to keep my money organized , like in seperate piggy banks, ing direct in about two seconds lets you create seperate savings accounts each labeled the way you want. I have a "new laptop", "emergency", "vacation" and "new car" accounts how great is that.

My life may never be the same

ArchoOS

Pocket Video Recorder

There is ipod and then there is ArchOS. I am surprised that this hasn't caught on more, but believ e it's due to the fact that audio is the ubiquitous on the go medium. I will be doing much, much more traveling and maybe at some point I will get one.

The latest ArchOS Pocket Video Recorder can tivo, play music and get the camera and video adapter. The device is in the hacker montra of the 90's "elite"

Connectquot River State Park

The park is pristine flowing river waters filled with trout. Deer walking walk though all parts of the forest. Even swimming otters eatting trout with fellow herons and great cranes. The park is rather peacefull and doesn't see many visitors seems like a hidden gem of long island. I have to say there is one very real problem ticks I hate them and signs all over warn you about them. Laurie and I only stayed on the trail but managed to pick up 2 ticks. We just picked them off and threw them into the forest but they are still a pain, remember your bug stray.

Mohegan Sun - Best birthday bash ever

Laurie, I have to say is an absolutely amazing individual. She planned a day and evening no less spectacular than 4th of july in boston harbor ... 270 degree views of rolling hills of maple and the river Thames River rushing to sea. All my oldest and best friends were waiting to suprise me at a party with decorations, platters of my favorite finger foods and drinks for all. Beyond everything, laurie was there standing tall, beautifully stunning with straight golden blonde hair, sexy pink tank top and trendy white pants.

How I love Laurie

Mac's are great a couple of compatiblility problems but generally are a hot fudge sunday during a brazenly hot summer's day.

Birthday party

My birthday party is coming, t minus 4 days.

cellmatrix now has a real hardware board

Imagine that you need more memory for you computer so you go to the store buy a extra piece and attach it like a lego piece and you can add as many as possible. This is exactly what this reconfigurable circuit board is like.

This isn't news to me and has been a round for a year or so. But this board is absolutely awsome and want to help spread the word.

USB KVM Switch for G5 Mac and Debian Linux

IO Gear Two port MiniView Micro USB Plus KVM

The right port used to switch machines so the keyboard must be plugged in right port.

Model GC5632U was the original one I had but failed after a week.
They replaced it immediately with a GCS632U (supposedly compatable with mac mini)

Default to switch computers uses scroll lock twice

The most basic hotkey operation for this unit is to switch ports between the two connected computers. Press [Scroll Lock] [Scroll Lock] will allow you to toggle between the two computers. For some people such as Mac users, pressing [Scroll Lock] is either not feasible or not convenient. There are other ways to Advanced Hotkey Operations Invoking Hotkey Mode

To invoke Hotkey Mode, do the following:
1. Press and hold down the [Num Lock] key
2. Press and release the minus [-] key
3. Release the [Num Lock] keyWhen Hotkey Mode is active, the Caps Lock, and Scroll Lock LEDs flash in succession to indicate that Hotkey Mode is in effect. They stop flashing and revert to normal …

vPod the next ipod and the rumors

I have heard the rumors and lately they have gotten much stronger.

2. http://www.gizmodo.com/archives/4th-generation-ipod-video-rumors-009516.php

According to their sources, the 4th-gen iPod will "obtain its media content via the unreleased Home on iPod" feature which should be on the upcoming OSX 10.4 'Tiger,' but I don't see exactly how those two things connect ('Home on iPod' is a method for keeping a Mac user's home directory on the iPod, which could be a method for syncing up the iPod content, but I can't imagine it would be required).


I would love to see video on the ipod, but even greater would be the ability to sync up a ipod. You use your ipod on two computers and want to be able to make sure your photo registries are up todate. That's important to a lot of people and a huge headache.
