Will It Blend?
Afternoon watch, 3 bells (1:48 pm)

From 53 toy cars (yes, they blend!) to an iPod to popcorn, drink and a movie, Will It Blend is simply amazing.

Someone get me one of these $400 blenders and I'll make my own videos 🙂

TCP Traffic, Revisited
Afternoon watch, 6 bells (3:08 pm)

Well after much analysis (I love Ethereal, and by the way, somebody buy me one of these or these!), I'm pretty sure I've identified the problem, despite the fact that my DMZ is a switch, and not a hub. I've been scouring the office for a hub, but I don't have any lying about, I got rid of them because you can sniff packets easily on a hub—ironic, isn't it?

None of the traffic snapshots I took last night pointed to the culprit. By eliminating all the NICs that would indicate the source of the problem, I was only left with a couple more possibilities. And the best of those is the Google Mini. In fact, the more I think about it, the more likely I believe it to be the issue. I'll have things verified by tomorrow morning, for sure.

Sweet Bluetooth Keyboard
Forenoon watch, 2 bells (9:10 am)

I remember a couple years ago I read an article about someone developing one of these, and now it's finally out: a laser-projected bluetooth keyboard. I want one real bad. I mean, I would kill someone, in front of their own grandmother, for one of these. 🙂

Might as Well Get Started
First watch, 6 bells (11:23 pm)

...on collecting the Fullmetal Alchemist series. The collector's tin is a nice touch, too. I've gotten seriously hooked on this show—it's got a great storyline.

More Stuff I Want
Forenoon watch, 5 bells (10:56 am)

Here are a few things I've really wanted to use on a new project:
20 mil adhesive faced magnetic material—4 feet
25 mil rolled steel magnetically receptive material—4 feet

I'll have a weird (but happy) Christmas if I get any of the things on my Things I Want To Own list.

Here's another item I'd love to have: a bluetooth keyboard for my X50v handheld.

Some things I want, but I don't know why. I want this car adapter because it is the last one I'll ever need.
