Tuesday evening I headed to Manchester to speak at an IBM migration event. Headed out in the evening for a few beers and it was great to meet up with Cliff, Andy, Tony and Colin again. It was really great to see Justin Davies again – I only ever meet him at events, and always […]

Fun and games

Today the PVR-350 and the channel switcher box arrived. This evening I had a crack at getting them working and the channel box works and the PVR-350 is nearly finished. I just need an S-Video lead before I can complete the setup. I will pick one up tomorrow. Tuesday I am giving a talk at […]
