Blu-ray Discs

Monday, April 30th, 2007

I’ve been renting Blu-ray Discs and watching them sometimes before work, at lunch, and after work. So far I’ve rented three of them and watched two of them on the 24″ LCD panel in my office. I just rented the last one this weekend and I look forward to seeing some of it tomorrow. It takes me a couple of days to see the whole thing depending upon how busy I am at work. I turn off the office lights, plug in my headphones, and watch it. The 1920×1080 high-definition imagery has been spectacular. There was one movie which had some additional scenes in standard-definition and they were obviously not as good. I could get hooked on this quality. I consider this a technology investigation into what the PS3 provides – or at least that is what I’m saying and it’s true.
Update: Finished the third BD tonight after work. I borrowed “Resistance: Fall of Man” game from one of the people in my department at work. Need to keep investigating…

Linux on PS3

Sunday, April 22nd, 2007

This weekend I installed Fedora Core 6 on the PS3 that I got a bit earlier. I used the following:

  1. How to install Fedora Core 6 Linux for PS3
  2. Documents of Linux for PS3
  3. PS3 Linux – The void has been filled..Full install instructions for Fedora Core 5!

In addition I installed the IBM Cell Broadband Engine Software Development Kit version 2.1.

Freebird’s Burritos

Sunday, April 15th, 2007

Kathy is bringing two Freebird’s Monster burritos to Katie and one to Kim. I bought them, froze them, removed the foil from them, and vacuum sealed them.

I took off the tin foil so the TSA would not get nervous when searching the luggage thinking it was some sort of explosive device (however, considering the amount of beans in these things this might be partially true).

Holiday’s a bit early

Tuesday, April 10th, 2007

Today I was given 2 surprise toys to play with at work: a 24″ LCD monitor (1920×1200) and a PS3.
