    Now, sir, I congratulate you, as:


    1. You haven't let these things get you down.
    2. The Astro is the G20's (my van's) little brother (of sorts).

    Also, thanks. I hadn't planned on being anywhere close to being ahead of you, but I guess these things happen. I wish you the best of luck on your next project and I think it's name should say something about either your love for your dogs or your refusal to quit...
    I would say "Phoenix" but it seems too cliche to me....

    iPad is here and I am using it right now! I freaking love it! Now I just need to get paid so I can try out the 3G... If it works well enough, I'll jailbreak it, install MyWi and use it in the truck. But I had a problem occur today. I need to find/make a new ground point for the PC because:

    • The ground loop is killing me!
    • The ground loop causes the PC to shut down randomly because the OPUS is pickier than it used to be...
    • I can't use my outside speakers because when I turn the switch on for the amp, the PC shuts off... WTF?


    I have MLK JR. (This coming Monday) off, so if I'm not having to get clothes for my BPA conference coming up next month, I'll get to work on all that stuff...

    Fixed all the electrical stuff today after church. Still have a ground loop, but it's only noticeable when nothing is playing and in the screen (it is all "line-y").

    Right now I'm looking for a way to control my XMPCR through my iPad, but it's proving to be harder than I thought it would be. Bugbyte suggested using a Sheeva plug as a web server and accessing it through the iPad, but I'd rather do it directly with the iPad. I have seen a serial dongle made for the dock connector that works through the jailbroken terminal app, but it's only serial and the XMPCR uses a serial to USB chip and the iPad shows it as "device requires too much power" or as "device not supported" when I plug it in with the camera kit. USB sound cards, keyboards, flash drives, SD cards, and the like work, though. Maybe a serial-to-USB-to-serial connection would work? But then there's still the matter of writing the app... *sigh* Maybe I'm thinking too hard about it, or it's just isn't something that can be done...

    Fixed the ground loop. It's only audible when the XM line in is dead. I also made a switch panel that controls the PC ACC line in. One 3-way switch: up is constant 12VDC in, middle is off, down is switched 12VDC. The other switch is to control the amplifier trigger line. I also put my voltmeter in with the switches. They are all stuffed in the ashtray. I'll post pix later.

    So the truck computer is still working pretty well. I took the XM box out to do some work on my iPad's XM interface. I have an old Dell laptop that I'm using as a "server" and so far it's looking good. I'll post some pictures if I remember after school.

    I started the "Insanity" workout program a couple days ago. Holy I'm sore! I can barely move! But when you're 18, 5' 11", and 285 lbs., something's gotta give, right? Mom doesn't think I can do it, but I'm gonna prove to her and everyone else that I can do this!

    great to hear!! the toughest part of working out is continuing to do it--even when you don't feel like it. just stick to a routine, and keep at it!!

    Thanks. The hardest part, for me, is the diet. But, so far, I'm doing alright. I had a little screw-up yesterday because my church had a meal thing and I had a slice of buttermilk pie... But I think it's gonna be alright once I get done with the first week. And the best thing is, one of my friends is doing the workout and the diet with me so we can keep each other accountable.

    Hey, I'm glad you're doing this. I think it might help to shift your thinking about it. This isn't a diet and a killer exercise routine; it's a change in the way you approach life. I'd be willing to bet you'll be surprised -- and pleased -- with the results you get, both from yourself and from others around you.

    That pie at the church wasn't an unconscious screw-up. You knew what you were doing, did it anyway, and that's okay. If you fall off the wagon, you just get back on. If you try to do this as an absolutely instant shift, it'll feel like a prison sentence. And when it feels like prison, you're just waiting to get out -- to fail -- so you can be free. A lighter approach is a lot easier on you.

    When you fall off the wagon, the guilt stuff is optional, but I don't recommend it. Instead, when you stick to the new pattern, notice that and celebrate. Tell yourself you did a terrific job -- and say it out loud to you. It's a funny thing, but we like praise, even when we say it to ourselves, so give yourself plenty when you do well. Note that people in prison don't get much praise, and that self-appreciation will help you stay on the new path.

    When you know the church is having a meal, go ahead and eat something that isn't on the new meal plan; just know in advance you're going to do it, and use it as a reward for previous good behavior. Instead of doing the guilt thing, do the celebration thing. Eat that treat slowly and with great relish.

    As the weight comes off and you build muscle tone, there will be other rewards. You'll find yourself more agile, both physically and mentally. And there will be a few downsides, like having to buy skinnier clothes. Yeah, that's a baaaad problem.

    Keep at it -- we're rooting for you.

    True, and as long as I keep looking at it that way, it will be a cake walk. Mmm, cake... I'm kidding.

    It indeed was a conscious screw-up. But even with that screw-up, I've still lost some weight. It just made that night's workout a little more bothersome because it made me feel sick during the workout, but that may have just been the fact that I didn't wait the 3 hours after eating to work out, I just waited 2 hours. Meh.

    What if I don't like relish? Again, I'm kidding. I'm trying to stay away from all of that tempting stuff, so I may just start eating at home instead of having the meal at the church. Cheaper (on me) that way.

    Having to get new clothes will be a bad problem, money-wise, but it will be a good problem health-wise.

    Shoooot, I'm the opposite. I loose weight easily. I eat about 5-7 times a day to maintain 155. Recently though, the reasons you guys haven't heard from me, I've been depressed and now bed ridden, due to an infection. My weight now! 125! This happens everytime I get sick and or depressed. I'd do anything to have it the other way around.

    Anyways, how is you setup going. I see that CF 3.5 dropped. To bad I'm to sick to ready it, lol.
