Fashionable, but unable to tell fact from fiction

Another exciting day at work! Found out today that one of the guys who joined at the same time as me was shown the door rather forcefully. Probably better all around -- he wasn't really happy with things, but it's a shame to lose someone with a good taste for raw fish.

Spent a bit of last night getting a TV capture card into my server. This morning, I ran about 200 feet of cable from a cable decoder to the capture card. A little cron here, a little C there, and huzzah -- I now have a way to record TV on my computer.

One time cost of, like, $300 all told. Ahh, but it's only money and the knowledge lasts a lifetime.

Well, until one forgets, anyway.

K~ has to work today, so she's missing out on the away game being televised right now. She doesn't know that I got this working, but when she comes home in a couple of hours, she'll be able to watch it with a couple of steaks that I plan on pan frying with some sherry and rosemary.
