old projects, reminiscing..

well.. had a busy weekend of helping a friend backup and reload her Macbook... ah yes, nothing like some fun w/macs.. eh? hehe..

backup of her music took FOREVER!! but in return we swapped music so it was worth it.. i'm a total fan of new music.. might be having a fun ipod party soon... basically have all my pals w/ipods come over and have them dump their libraries on a pc w/a nice 300gb hd.. figure that way we can have a centralized location for our music in case anyone's hd or ipod dies.. hehe.. we'll see if we do it or not.. might be more work than its worth...

was bored and hopped on the web and headed over to an older hangout of mine, http://skdr.net . used to hang here when i was doing Sidekick related stuff.. still miss using Hipster.. man, nobody has yet to come up w/a program quite like that!! data aggregating and parsing w/major customization and creation!! i wrote about 60+ modules for it.. guess it just fell off the scope of things.. :(

man, converting m4a to mp3 seems to take forever!! atleast there's a good app that lets you do batch jobs and also replace teh orginal files! good ole ImTOO Audio Encoder seems to work great.. i have yet to hit any purchased songs so i assume those would fail unless i run it through hymn...

stilll waiting for my DS homebrew stuff to come... once it does, i should be able to get a quickie newbie guide to homebrew.. also decided to sell my whole scsi setup since i needed the dang pci slot for a new audio card and figured s-ata is fast enough for what i need.. so hopefully sell that on ebay and then get a nice 300 or maybe even 400gb drive.. hehe..

just saw Fearless at the theater and must say one of the better movies i've seen in some time.... not bad Jet Li! i'm always a fan of his movies, good action and a decent plot...
