Muscle Car Madness

On Saturday I went out to Muscle Car Madness. Once I finally got to the right place (Rolleston is not Rangoria) There were alot of really great cars. Here is a shot from the grandstand looking down on the showgrounds where most of the cars were on display.

For photos of some of the cars follow the link

New Year Resolution

I'm now getting close to end of the thirty's and its been along time since I have done any real exercise, I felt it was time to start taking better care of myself. So after some though I have dusted off the old mountain bike and taken it out of its 14 year retirement. I gave it a quick service, oil and lube, New tubes, handle bar grips, lights, brake pads, I also got new gloves and helmet.

I did a couple of laps around the block to make sure everything was ok, Nearly killed myself, a push bike and a motorbike are quite different. I forgot how fast a mountain bike reacts compared to a heavy old motorbike. But its a start. I will now just need to build up to been able to bike to work as after my wee trip I was knacker. Arrrhh the joys of been fat and old and having to get back into shape.

Apple TV and true 1080p, Yes you can do it. :)

Well this is going to be my next little upgrade to the ATV,

So I will be removing the wifi card and replacing it with the Broadcom Cyrstal HD card, Through XBMC I will beable to play full 1080p HD video.

And since I already have ATV Flash, there no need for all the SSH and terminal hacking.

So I jumped onto eBay Australia, as I could not find a stockest in NZ, found what I was looking for and its now on its way over to me.

Should be a good little hack project.
