Have you noticed the sales ranking on Amazon? First thing is, ranked against what? other printers, other electronics, other things in the whole of amazon.com. Then I start sorting things by Best selling. I am trying to find the number one selling item. I click on Digital cameras I then click on the first item SiPix style Camera Ok rank 260. Then I click on the next item Cannon A40Rank 43. So why is SiPix camera higher up on the list than the cannon. acording to the sales rank the cannon should be the best selling item. Hmmmmmm……………

Well I know the quality is crap, but I put the tv card back in my P200, I have the latest version of Real Server and an old version of real Producer. I am now streaming the output from my Tivo through my P200 to my 1.4 Ghz. Since I have the tivoweb installed on my tivo I can now start and stop programs via a web browser. So in theory I can sit at work and watch a real video feed from via my cable connection of my tivo.
Maybe I should upgrade my P200 by putting in a new Motherboard and processor
I should say $1,899.95 worth of droool

I hear on the water taxi this morning, there has been another shooting, I listen. I then hear it was in Falls Church, I then hear that it was at the Home Depot. My mind is running through all the Home Depots in Falls Church. I come up with only one. The one i have shopped in, the one next to where Best Buy used to be in Seven Corners. I don’t live near there any more but I have visited that Home Depot, the Best Buy, and the Barnes and Noble next to Home Depot many times and I know people who do still live there or close by.
Maybe I should be doing something else but …… Funny
I have the updated code for projectphotos done, there are a couple things I don’t like but it is functional. I think I made database changes, I just hope I wrote the update scripts otherwise I am not going to be a happy person tomorrow morning when I try and upload the code and can’t update the database backend.
