Redstate.com: “For the last two years I think all of us have worked very hard, for free, to try to bolster a Republican majority that hasn’t deserved our support. I’ve given hundreds of dollars and hundreds of hours of my time, and I’m deeply ashamed of having been a part of this movement.” This post makes my heart swell with pride to be an American. The long cold war inside the US may be coming to a close. We may have different personal values about the role of government, about religion, but can we agree on some basics, like respect for the individual, respect for the Constitution, love for the country we were given by our ancestors. Let’s work together to regain the greatness of our country.

I don’t know Marc Pincus, but his story makes a lot of sense, and it’s exactly why I rarely do interviews with professional reporters. If I have something to say I publish it on my site, and hope people who are interested find it. I can’t depend on reporters to accurately represent what I say.
I spent a few hours trying to install the SlingBox software on my Vaio this evening, and gave up. I did at one point get a TV picture showing up on my laptop and that was pretty exciting, but then they wanted me to install the new version of the software, and from that point on, nothing worked. In the process the software got hosed and no longer works. The instructions for installing the hardware are strictly for hobbyists, I can’t imagine someone non-technical making any sense of it. I also felt they should have provided specific guidance for the settop box I have. Maybe they try to do too much? Also, as luck would have it, I bought my unit a day before they announced their new products. My bad luck, and I guess theirs too, I’m reviewing something that’s obsolete. But then I bought something that’s obsolete.
