Electricians… Will they ever learn??

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

The next person that tells me their electrician is doing the audio/video… I’m going to insist they take their car to get fixed at the dentist… I’m not sure who is the stupidest one, the electrician that thinks he can do my job! Or the homeowner who trusts his deceipt?



XBMC Awww shiiiiiiiiiiitttt. EDEN (v.11) is finally stable!!

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012


It’s been over a year in the works and today we are excited to announce that XBMC 11.0 is finally ready and available for download. You can find XBMC 11.0 here.

XBMC 11.0 Milestones include Addon Rollbacks, vast improvements in Confluence (the default skin), massive speed increases via features like Dirty-region rendering and the new JPEG decoder, a simpler, better library, movie set scraping, additional protocol handling, better networking support, better handling of unencrypted BluRay content and structures, adjustable display refresh rate in OSX (to match the already available feature in Windows and Linux), AirPlay support, an upgraded weather service with geoip lookup, and much, much more. Check out the highlights in the summarized changelog.

The new Confluence
In addition to our many software improvements, we’ve increased our reach in the realm of hardware support since Dharma was released. Eden marks the first in-sync stable release for the Apple TV2, iPad, and other iOS devices. We’ve vastly improved the method by which we handle input, including heavily upgrading JSON-RPC support, making remote control support much, MUCH simpler in Windows, and enabling unique methods of device communication with hardware. And now even AMD devices are supported for GPU video decoding in Linux to some extent, thanks to the inclusion of VAAPI.

Beyond XBMC 11 for Windows, Linux, OSX, and iOS, we are also happy to announce XBMCbuntu Final.

XBMCbuntu is very similar to past versions of XBMC Live. By default, the user boots directly into XBMC, and if he/she chooses, he or she will never see the underlying OS. However, unlike Live, XBMCbuntu is now built upon a full LXDE desktop environment, which has a web browser (Chromium) with a fully updated (and updatable) version of Flash built-in and a GUI package manager ready to install and update all of the normal Ubuntu programs a typical Linux user might use. The user may now toggle between XBMC, which auto-starts, and a normal desktop if he or she chooses. And, perhaps most exciting for many users, XBMC will now be upgradeable, both from command line and from the GUI package manager, without fear of crashing the XBMC experience.

Naturally, those users who do not want to see the desktop will never need to. When you boot your computer, you will be booted directly into the XBMC homescreen, just as you are right now. The only clear difference is the new power underneath the hood. Those users who have already installed the Beta version of XBMCbuntu can upgrade to final using the apt-get upgrade commands.

There are truly an incredible number of updates and improvements between Dharma and Eden. But don’t take our word for it. Download XBMC 11.0 Eden now.

Wiring ain’t always fun and games…

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Just want to start off by saying. I went to sunnybrook hospital this evening to get my finger sown up, after a little mishap wiring… It was one of the quickest services I’ve ever received, there was a young mother and her hysterical boy who had been there for 2 hours, with an appointment, waiting for a shot. Somehow I got in before them? Didn’t make sense, doctor had me frozen and stitched up within 1.5 hours of walking in.. Then he asks the nurse ‘Jill’ or ‘Gillian’ to give me a tetanus shot. Another 2 hours sitting on the gurney, not a single new patient can come in as I’m using a bed, the local anaesthetic had worn off and I was in PAIN! Nurse Jill, was running around like a chicken with her head cut off, too many tasks to keep track of (give a poor 2 year old his medicine, and a quick tetanus shot and you’ve got room for the next 2 patients?? WTF!!!

I ended up leaving, with no tetanus shot! Thank nurse Jill, you are the reason people HATE hospitals, one shot!!!! 2 hours and I still didn’t get it!!
I hope I get lockjaw you useless tool!!

The doctors did a wonderful job! But nurse Jill, I don’t think you could handle a McDonald’s lunch rush!!
