If this device had some sort of magical Xbox 360 integration I would have been more interested. Pass.

Need some cheap HDMI cables? This post is for you.Need some cheap HDMI cables? This post is for you.

Not entirely sure about the quality, but five cables for fifteen bucks sounds pretty good to me.

Daily Grind: Temperamental

Name: Vin (aka mic jack hero)
How Vin feels today: Temperamental @ 12:26:00 PM
What Vin really wants today: Continue chugging along at this week's coding project, stop getting frustrated when something unrelated deters me from getting this programming job done.

Music Stuck in Head: Possum Kingdom / The Toadies
This song sounds way more interesting when played from a mono jack (certain aspects of song are mixed to the left and right respectively). Makes the song a little more spookier than usual.

Stuff to do today:

  • Give a birthday shout-out to Alpha
  • Rush home early today to play newly released Special Edition of Monkey Island
  • Encourage readers to visit this URL and click the big YES button
  • Cmon, help me get written into a video game
  • Stop begging

Daily Grind: Busy

Name: Vin (aka woah)
How Vin feels today: Busy @ 9:28:00 AM
What Vin really wants today: To get everything prepared for this weekend's birthday festivities (kid turns 3).

Music Stuck in Head: Lisa it's your Birthday / Michael Jackson
Obligatory and relevant for different obligatory and relevant reasons.

Stuff to do today:

  • Take a stroll down memory lane and watch Captain EO on YouTube
  • Recall other fond memories off Michael Jackson
  • ...like covering Billy Jean in my college band
  • ...and then almost getting booed off stage (once)
  • Post audio clip of said event
  • Head over Home Depot and get some neccesary household items that I have been meaning to get
  • Put it off some more as it is going to rain buckets well into next week
