Roxio Toast 8 and TiVo Transfer problems

If you are a TiVo user and have a Mac, you are probably using Roxio Toast 8 Titanium. This is probably because there are no other solutions out there to transfer programs from your networked TiVo boxes to your Mac. It's great software, but upon upgrading to the latest version of Toast 8.0.3, I encountered a problem. The "TiVo Transfer" option was still on the ...

Went shootin’, y’all

One thing I've always wanted to do was to shoot a real gun. I never had the opportunity until today. Since my brother-in-law, Kyle, was in town for Christmas, he brought his guns that he inherited from his Dad when he passed. He offered to take me shooting, and I didn't turn him down! So, today I went shooting for the first time with Kyle and his 3 guns: a ...

Verizon Wireless reps are fraudulent liars

This past July when I purchased my iPhone I had the choice of canceling my Verizon Wireless contract which expired this month, or continue it. After reviewing the cost differences, it was about the same cost to keep the plan active until December 2007 instead of paying the cancellation fee. In order to do this, however, I had to merge my phone in with my wife's ...

I’m in the NY Times today!

Well, I'm not, but one of my sites is! My sister just called me... turns out her husband, Hank, was reading the New York Times today and came upon an article that mentions RUNNER+! Holy cow... I'm so stoked! I seriously never thought anything I'd do would wind up in the NYT! I'm going to run out later and pick up a few copies of today's paper. It's in ...

Webcams that work with Mac OS X Leopard 10.5

Apple puts their tiny "iSight" webcam into the monitor of every computer they make, except for those of us who have purchased a Mac Mini or a Mac Pro and have opted for a non-Apple monitor solution. Personally, I'm rocking a 27" DELL Widescreen that does not have a built in camera. It has everything, but that! After much research and futzing around with the latest ...
