Utilikilt Alert

I’ve just learned from a reliable source that Patrick is going to be wearing the Utilikilt again tonight. Must be in honor of our LAN party on the show tonight. Either that or it’s sweeps.

Pat and Leo head to Joisey

Finally the details are in on where Patrick and I are appearing on Father’s day.
We’re at Clarion Hotel & Conference Center on Route 70 East in Cherry Hill doing two technology seminars. Pat does The Wired House of 2005 at 11am and I’ll be guessing at The Future of the Internet at 1:30pm.

The speeches are free but you do have to pre-register on the TechLive web site.

I hope we’ll see you there!

Patrick maims a computer

I’ve always known that Patrick has a violent streak but these pictures prove it!
Patrick
Hard drive troubles? No problem! Just bite it!

A
Pancakes anyone?

Patrick
There’s nothing more satisfying than taking a sledge hammer to a PC.

Worth Twice The Price

I am so mad at my cable company. I was watching TechTV when the installer was here last week, and for a few hours afterward. But it hasn’t worked since. I called once last week and they couldn’t get it working.
I just called again today. It turns out I’m not paying enough. $55/month isn’t enough? I have to subscribe to the Silver package for ten bucks more to get TechTV. Even though this is not clear anywhere in their sales materials. Grrr.

I’m bringing the digital boxes back and getting DISH. It’s $40/month – $25 cheaper. Of course, ATT is going to charge me $10 extra a month for @home because I’m not a cable subscriber, but it’s still cheaper. Humph. No wonder AT&T’s stock is in the dumper!
