RCA | Flat Antenna Review for Over-The-Air HD/DTV
Along with the new TV we purchased, I need a new antenna for Over-The-Air HD/DTV because I absolutely hate the Trek antenna I bought last year because of it’s bulky size and lack of a strong signal. I was strolling through Lowe’s picking up some stuff for youth group and I wandered by the home audio/video section. You will be amazed sometimes by the stuff Lowe’s carries and the prices compared to Best Buy and the chains. In this case I for the RCA Flat, non-powered antenna (see picture) for around ......

TV | Samsung 6000 Series 55 in LED TV Initial Review
Christmas is coming and so are the deals. Right now Best Buy has a huge discount (and you can find them in-stock) on the Samsung LED TVs. (I think I saved $960 off of the original price) I have needed a new TV ever since we moved. The main reason is we wanted something we could mount on the wall to keep away from the kids in the new house and my wife watched enough Food Network (she bakes cakes and cookies as her hobby) that the logo started to get burnt in. The black lines were definitely burnt ......

GWB | Minor Site Update
Last week I deployed a small update to Geekswithblogs.net based on a blogger suggestion to get the last version of the Admin Blog Editor’s input control on the server so he could do some cool stuff he wanted to with syntax. I published that update and then fixed some of the annoying CSS issues we had on the server side to make it a little cleaner looking UI. I need to do more work for sure, but I fixed the majority of the issues. Another area I put some time into was the long standing request for ......

Windows Virtual PC | My *flicker* First *flicker* Experiences
Well I have been using WVPC for Windows 7 RTM for about a week now and there are a few things I like and a few things I don’t. First off, why at the end of 2009 do we still not have a “multiple monitor” story that doesn’t require me to put quotations around the words. This RDP style of one giant monitor span across your two monitors is not a solution, it hasn’t been since it came out. Secondly, What *flicker* is *flicker* up *flicker* with *flicker* all *flicker* the *flicker* flickering? I have ......

Windows Virtual PC | Integrated Pointer Configuration
I have been converting my current client’s development environment to a VPC instead of taking over my main machine as we did to get the project kicked off. I decided to go with Windows Virtual PC now that it has RTMed, but quite a bit has changed. Once I had Windows 7 installed and VS 2008 configured, I started looking for a multiple monitor solution for VPCs. In the past, I had just lived with the limitation of running virtual and not getting the benefit of dual monitors. This time I wanted something ......

Downloads | Microsoft SyncToy 2.1 Released
A few days ago Microsoft released an update to one of my favorite PowerToys, SyncToy. This is a must have if you are a portable user and you want to get a quick backup of your files (photos, videos, source code, etc) by folder for free. SyncToy 2.1 I have been using this for a few versions now and it is great at syncing or backing up folder to folder onto USB flash or hard drives. The scenarios I use it in are: Backup of photos pre and post processing from my D300 and D700. Backup of source code ......

GWB | Long time no see Jeff
Hello again! This is my first time to blog since July and that is a little bit long I know. So what has been going on? Well quite a bit actually. First, Addison and Brandon are getting quite a bit older and are more active. I truly enjoy spending time with them in the evenings and that takes a lot of time out of blogging. Second, my role as youth leader at my church has been taking a larger priority in my life than when we first started our youth ministry. We are now up to 40 students at our Saturday ......

GWB | Numerous Test Post Annoyances
Seriously why do new bloggers insist on placing a test post with the word “test” as the entire body? This is just a weird concept to me. Please stop. No one wants to see you introduced to a community as “test”. Rather we would like to see you say, “Hi, this is my first post. My name is [Insert Name] and I am [Insert Interests and Bio]”. This is a blog community so why not try out a blog post for a test? Anyway, I am very sorry for the number of test posts we have been receiving lately. I will add ......
