What, no b.log entries?

Not many, no. My main excuse is that HeyRick is offline (well, stuck in April 2008) due to technical issues and updating isn't exactly easy as my Internet access passes a hyperactive firewall - I can't even telnet to Arcade BBS, so don't even think ssh!

The truth, on the other hand, is that between work and video conversions I don't have a lot of free time. I'm also working on some info on the Goodman's freesat receiver. Remember, my job involves nine hours of pushing things and heaving things; so it is no surprise that I get up, go to work, come home, watch telly, and fall into bed... only to not sleep particularly well (I rarely do).

Because my PVR cannot output DivX/XviD directly, I have to transcode to MotionJPEG/PCM to perform edits to make an XviD. It's not a complicated process, but it does take time. Here, look at what VirtualDub's been up to:

 

The Goodmans GFSAT100SD freesat receiver

The review and technical information on this receiver will be part of the Digibox information.
