It is interesting all that can be done with consumer electronics today, especially making movies. I think that it is really cool what a few hundred dollars and a little imagination can get you. (I am not talking about partying on the weekends either)
There are a ton of fan films out there, especially StarWars related. Some of my favorites are made with action figures. And these are great examples too of some of the live action stuff people are doing, not necessarily StarWars related, and very professional looking.
Be sure to check out Grayson, Worlds Finest, and Batman: Dead End.
I’d pay good money to see Grayson.
Firefox is here (almost). It is 1.0 Preview Release, but it is full featured and almost ready to go! This is a great browser.
I have been using Firefox for sometime now, and have converted several people to it and have heard nothing but good feedback from others.
So, are you fed up with IE? Ditch it and enjoy browsing the web again.
Increase iPod battery by 70% – Engadget – www.engadget.com
It was nice of Apple to up the battery life on the new iPod to 12 hours from the sorta dismal 8 hours of juice the earlier ones got, but if you’re not quite ready to drop $300 or $400 to upgrade, NewerTech has a new replacement battery for first and second generation iPods that adds an extra 70% of battery capacity. The iPod originally came with a 1230mAh rated battery, while this Ultra High Capacity version tops out at almost double that, 2100mAh. Easily worth the $40 if it%u2019s really that good.
Could save you a few bucks.

To me it is always interesting to see what other people see in the world, and no better way to do it than with a camera and the Internet.
Over at Photoblogs.org there a links to a ton of photoblogs where shutterbugs post pictures everyday of people and places. The quality of these pictures are amazing, and captivating. It is easy to visit the links they have and get lost for hours.
Now how cool is that? Being able to set up a wifi access point by just booting off a CD. It looks like you can save your custom interface and all your settings to a floppy (you still got one right?) and have them read when the cd boots.

I found this post in the Tivo Community forums that has a lot of cheat codes for the Tivo. The sorting my Now Playing list is exactly what I have been wanting. Now if I can just figure out what the “Window” button is on my remote. (Picture in Picture?)
Just checking out the Blogging by email.
I saw this link on /. today, and thought that this was hilarious.
It is a map of springfield where the Simpsons live. Definatly, a case of the ‘too-much-time-on-thier-hands’, but it is cool.
I have to say that as with all previous versions of linux that Redhat has put out, it has consistantly gotten better as time went on, and Fedora Core 2 is no exception. I installed it on two machines, one being a Dell D400 Laptop, and have had no problems… except with SambaFS or now called CIFS.
My problem was that I was trying to mount a Windows share from my new Fedora box, and I couldn’t. No matter how I set up the command. I was getting an ERROR 13 Permission Denied. I was getting frustrated…and finally I got the answer, buried under the scattered text of several message boards was it. My machine needed a kernel update. Once I updated the kernel to 2.6.6-1.374 from the stock kernel that came with FC2, mounting worked perfectly. I’m sure that that kernel will be released shortly, but if you are looking for it, I got it from the development branch on the Fedora Download Server.
I am just putting this out there in case someone else has the same problem.
Other than that, FC2 works as advertised. BTW Props go out the all the guys working thier butts off to put this thing together. Thank You.
