Ok, this is not a “general interest” thing, and so I’ll keep the techno-blather below the cut for those actually searching for a solution for this issue.

The Federal Conservatives attempted to get rid of the registry under their minority government and failed, now that they have a majority they have tabled legislation to kill the long gun registry and delete the data.
Of course this is a contentious issue, and I’ll give you three guesses (the first two not counting) as to what my opinion is.
In response some provinces are discussing setting up their own registries, lets hope they don’t turn to the companies that were involved in the federal effort, or we’re likely to see more taxpayer money poured down the drain.
Right now we have a high-tech hodgepodge when it comes to home media distribution.
The remainder of the TVs have Egreat Media Players which can stream video using “samba share” or “UPnP”, and have some limited internet functionality.
There is also a Patriot Box Office Media Player (which appears to me to be a rebranded Egreat, but who am I to judge) in the basement hooked up to my Slingbox so that I can watch my movie collection while away from home or on my Android phone.
I did want a little more from our system, and after some reading decided that the Western Digital TV Live Plus (runner-up of the 2009 Longest Product Name award) was my best bet, as it was available over at Newegg.ca for the princely sum of $90.
The WD Digital TV Live Plus was attractive because it offered all the features of the Egreat units, along with being a Netflix capable device at a price that wouldn’t break the bank.
It arrived yesterday, I’ll tell you how it works soon.
So, trying to sort out the stalling/sputtering nonsense (it appears Dad was right it may have just been a gas issue) and we rolled past 1000km, 700 of which are mine.
Time flies, eh?
You’re not going to beat Kellys Heroes with that attitude mister.
