Pimping things I never thought I'd pimp...

iTunes/Quicktime Pro
Holy crap. I had to purchase Quicktime Pro in order to properly convert the Moron Life videos for The Vaudcast.  Of course you can't install Quicktime now without installing iTunes.  That sort of pissed me off a little bit... but honestly, the Quicktime makes it freakin SIMPLE to put stuff in mp4 format for vodcast, and that makes me happy.  Then I actually started playing with iTunes, and using it to subscribe to podcasts and such.  And... well... it's actually pretty cool.  Last night I took the plunge and let it at my mp3 directory, and it completely organized stuff, and made structure out of chaos, which is pretty impressive.  And it's making it REALLY easy to pull the rest of the CDs I've not ripped onto my computer.  Oh, and someone came up with a little program that lets me sync an iTunes playlist with my Treo, so I can use the damn thing like an actual mp3 player if I want.  That alone is pretty freakin cool.
With the recent upgrades to my TiVo, allowing for a bunch of new home media functionality, I had to go set up the page for myself so that I could check weather and photos and whatnot.  My home page used to be Google News, but damn, the my.Yahoo page is actually pretty useful!  Especially the flight tracker, so I can see when I can get cheap flights to places like Boston or Amsterdam. :D

    I may or may not have just scared off a raccoon that was outside my window with a lightsaber flashlight.
