Updated Analog to Digital TV Count Down Userbar
Well, the original date (Feb 17th) has come and gone and my Userbar is showing 33 days past. Since the conversion has been delayed till June 12, I thought I’d better update my application for those still brave enough to use it. I completely forgot to use my coupon for a converter box so it has e…

BattlestaR Galactica Trading Card
Okay, let’s see how old you really are. Anyone remember these trading cards from ’78 back when the “original” Battlestar Galactica aired. I was cleaning out the attic and found this in a bag with some of my other childhood memories…

Woo Hoo! I received my official government $40 coupon to receive HD TV today! Yes, I still own all boring analog 480i TV’s — that’s standard def for those not in on all these HD resolutions. Yeah, I really don’t care about HD, but I do want to get broadcast TV still…

Analog to Digital TV Count Down Userbar
I just realized that the US has just one year left till all the Analog broadcast signals are turned off. As someone who still doesn’t own a digital—or even HD—TV, I’ve created this Userbar countdown to remind me of that fact: Good thing I have satellite. ;-) You can check out my other si…

Memories of Daitarn 3
I grew up for some time in Naples in the early 80’s. Surprisingly enough, this was before any English TV was available to us. That didn’t stop me from watching TV, even if shows like Star Trek were dubbed in Italian…
