To all of the US military overseas....

Come home safe! Even though I don't agree with the wars that are going on right now or within the last few years, I still respect and honor our troops. Anyone that joins any branch of the military knows what they are signing up for. To protect their homeland, and for that I don't see why anyone wouldn't respect them. It could be peacetime in the world right now, and somewhere in the US a young man or woman would be signing up knowing at any time they can be shipped out to fight for their country. Unfortunately sometimes the fighting isn't necessary. If you see someone in any branch in your hometown. Just go up to them and say thank you. You wouldn't believe how much that means to them.

On a sort of of geeky tangent here, I think I have the most awesome remote control over made. The Logitech Harmony One.
Touch screen, programmable, just all around awesome. You can program this thing to do just about anything with your electronics. For example if I wanted to watch something I downloaded on my Western Digital Media player, I would press the Watch Media Player on the touch screen. If the TV was on it would stay on, it would shut down the cable box, turn on the media player, and AV receiver (if it was off), and put the AV receiver to the right HDMI output for the WD player. From there I can control the sound to the AV receiver with the volume buttons and control the WD player with the Pause/Play etc buttons....Trust me this thing is fracking unbelievable. The only downside I have with it is programming it. You do it by USB to your computer. It's the program itself to program the remote that is the pain in the ass. You literally need the model number of whatever electronics you want programmed into it. Which if you have a big system can be a pain int he ass to get to. Another con I would say is the price point. Who would pay anywhere between 150 - 250 USD (depending on where you get it) for a remote control. I got mine free turning in frequent flier miles. But yea, if you want a good remote and have the cash, pick it up....it rules....

I hope that some of you took a look into yesterdays post and downloaded Infected and are listening to it and are going to listen to it....if not I'm going to be a sad panda.

And you know what time it is? CONFESS CONFESS!

  8. I completely agree with you. Gotta support the people for what they do for the country, not the country's decisions.
