I’ve turned permalinks on, for whatever that’s worth.

Pity about the pricetag of a few thousand dollars, but considering the ingredients, the Vaio Type X might be worth it. 😉 As noted a few days ago I’ve put a 200 GB HD in use for storing material recorded on TV which for the image resolution and quality I have is enough for well over 250-300 hours. Now imagine how much material you could store on 500 GB, even if it’s higher quality material! And with 7 cards I can’t imagine ever missing anything, although I do wonder about the workload for the disks if all 7 cards are pushing full quality streams its way.

The 500 GB dedicated to TV is enough to record six channels for five-and-a-half days nonstop, a Sony representative said.

Hm, let’s see. 5.5 days non-stop is 132 hours. With six channels going at once, that’s 792 hours. Sounds like they’re recording at approximately the same quality as I am right now.

What fun, part III

Of course I should’ve known this, if I’d paid attention to one of the links on my own page here, CSS, level 1, where it describes comments as being C style comments: /* ... */. Thanks to Josh for pointing that out. *hits head on keyboard* Now I find myself wondering where else I’ve been working with this incorrect assumption and messing up the browsing experience for IE users without actually intending to. Hrmpf.

Gmail

I’m sure there are Gmail-watcher groups out there, but just for my own reference, they added email forwarding to their feature set today, so their account just became a bit more attractive to me. Also some other small improvements in the interface, it looks like, the contacts popup is now no longer a popup, for instance.
