so ravi says patrick is putting together a liinux box. then I read in a box how to make your own tivo. now I'm thinking of taking my old PC and turning it into a tivo.
except I think the main problem i had with it was that the power suply stopped not randomly turning off. so maybe I'll use the other PC that my old one is sitting on top of. the documentation says it only needs about 400mhz and a video capture card, both of which I have, and I've always had a desire to put together a unix system, I've just really had to reason to previous to this.

also, I'm getting sick of theatre. well. uh
wow, it's 1:30. i need to sleep.

wow, reading this again in the morning makes me realize that I did a pretty poor job of articulating myself. This must be what all thoes 3am essays I wrote for school look like.

nerd box!
your should make the tivo! that would be really cool. I was really suprised about all the stuff linux comes with these days... it actualy does all stuff I use my computer for, but better. very odd.

Re: nerd box!
they had to step up to the awesomeness of XP and OSX. Mac and Microsoft were like, screw you Linux, we're gonna do everything you do for the average user but better. And then Linux was like damn, we lost all our people who were "on the fence" with us. So we better make things better. werd.

Tivo would be cool. I like computers, they're still like magic boxes to me. I know the technical side of them, but I still like thinking they're magic like credit cards. The magic money making card.

Power supplies are cheap these days, shouldn't cost ya more than $30-$40.

Although I'm not 100% sure that was the problem. I mean, I didn't come to that conclusion systematically, I just kinda decided that was the issue after some time.
