The geezer is back! Now get off my lawn!

Nov 19 2010

I have been flogging HTPC websites in one form another for several years now. I guess it is not in my blood to give up this damn hobby. Mike, in all his stubborness, keeps chipping away at me until I finally folded like a cheep card table.

What inspired me to come back at least on a part time basis?

20% of this decision was based solely on the fact that the website design has a nice new blockquote feature. It could use a little more orange, but hey I am not complaining.

Look at this shiznit. Back in my day, we had use three pages of code and we were lucky if it didn't bork the whole wesbite.

An additional 5 or so percent is related to the site redesign itself. Looks damn good.
Another 25% of this decision can be attributed to the talent Mike has recruited to replace the old cows that were running the place before.
Though mainly, I decided to get back into this game because more home entertainment system is in an awful state since my most recent move. It has been that way for quite sometime and I aim to do something about. I hope getting back into the game would inspired me to make this work Smile.
What does this meaningless ramble mean? Mostly I will be helping Mike on the occasional news post. Don't fret though. My posts will still contain typos and I will likely blockquote everyday thing on the site at least twice a week.
So what do you guys want to see from your old news guy?
Congrats to the site for a great relaunch and here is to another great chapter in MissingRemote's life.

I'd be up for some start to end projects. I don't know what your specialty is Sage or WMC7, or what formats you use for media.

Like right now we have a long running FFDshow thread where I don't think any noob would no where to begin or if FFDShow is even needed with the newer systems these days. 

A WHS forum would be nice too with a thread about how to get the most out of it.

That can be arranged.  Though if you haven't touched WHS yet wait for Vail.  A huge performance difference.

i was going to correct your typos, but it just didn't feel right!!! Great to have you back buddy!

Look forward to your contributions... Mike is a kind and benovolent master so I am sure that will encourage you to write!

I still have passwords that Mike doesn't even know about.. Muahahah

Ya I got an email about changing password thought it was a scam so i deleted it, so then when I went to sign into missing remote had issues with the site glad to see we are up and running since I build systems and sometimes the forums have the solution to a lot of the problems with customer systems or help with the issue, keep up the good work.
