I’m going to try to get in the habit of actually posting here once in a while. Nothing as ambitious as Shane’s 30 in 30, just… you know, actually writing something from time to time.
Tonight, I’m hopefully heading out to New Jersey, but the weather isn’t looking too good. JetBlue canceled most of their flights into the area because of a storm. As of the moment, United hasn’t canceled my flight yet. With any luck, they won’t.
Last night, I finally got sound working on my Windows desktop, and hooked up the line-out from that machine to the line-in on my Linux machine, so now I get sound from both machines out of the same speakers. It also let me record some music from a flash streaming audio app. Last month, I saw Bowling for Soup, and one of the opening bands for them was Melee. I bought their older CD, but the new one doesn’t come out for another couple of weeks (same day as GH2 for the Xbox 360, actually). They have three songs up in a flash player here, but I wanted them in a format I could take with me. I’m sure there’s probably some way to record streaming audio with a single PC, but this was a nice easy solution for me to do it. They’re now on my iPod. And yes, I’m actually buying the CD when it comes out (in fact, it’s pre-ordered at Amazon).
17 days until opening day.
