Another Blog, Another Day

Posted by techie on October 28, 2006

Well, this is my original Something for Nothing blog. I think I need to rename and repurpose it. I’m still not sure exactly what I should do with it. There’s so much that could be done with it, but only so many hours in a day. I think it’s a great asset that is still getting some traffic. I just don’t know what to do next with this blog. Maybe I should make this a blog that is shared by a large group of people. We could ascend to WordPress.com stardom. I don’t think it would be too hard.

I’m actually starting to like this idea. I could invite all of my PayPerPost friends, otherwise known as posties) to be apart of this blog and just generate content for it like crazy. Of course, they’d be welcome to place links back to their blogs all they want. Now I’m on to something.

My only problem is that I’m a little busy blogging right now. Take a look at my list of blogs:
Smuggle Me
Something for Nothing
EMR and HIPAA
BYU Sports
Lynn Family Blog
Sports Fundraising
So You Think You Can Dance
Cambrian House Blog – Spoil My Spouse

Add this list of blogs to my idea called Spoil My Spouse which is competing in IdeaWarz over at Cambrian House and you can imagine I’m busy. Oh yeah, I do all of this in my free time. Great stuff huh?

Any other ideas?

Microsoft Partners with Major Players on IPTV Edition

Posted by techie on October 11, 2006

IPTV has been something that has interested me since I was first introduced to it a few years ago when I was in Hawaii. It wasn’t implemented correctly in Hawaii, but since then I’ve really loved the various IPTV out there.

Microsoft has seen what I’ve seen and they are making a play into the IPTV market with their own IPTV product.

Even of more interest to me has been trying out some of the various P2P Live Streamed TV. They still need some work, but I’ve been really happy with TVUPlayer’s ability to stream. I did it on my laptop using the airport’s wireless and it worked great. Talk about making the wait for the airplane that much easier.

It’s going to be amazing to watch technology grow over the next couple years.

My Blog is Back

Posted by techie on October 3, 2006

I came here to look at one of my old blogs that had been taken down and now it’s back!! Thank you WordPress.com for giving me access to my blog again. I guess that means they got my request or something.

Granted, I’ve gone from 8000 page views a day down to 10-15, but I’ll take the content again. Of course, I’ve moved much of the content over to: Something for Nothing blog and so I might need to rename this one.

So many things to blog about and so many blogs to blog on. Priorities are going to be important. Anyway, I just wanted to start posting again!! Welcome back to this blog and look for it to continue to grow in the future.
