Not 7pounds

I have gotten a few emails from people wondering why they have arrived here when they were attempting to get to 7pounds.net.  I am not a squatter or anything like that, I actually own both of the domains and have for sometime now.  I recently decided to put an end to 7pounds since I wasn’t really keeping it updated.  Its much to hard to maintain multiple sites.  Anyways this will be the new home for it for a while, or until I decide that it needs to be on its own again.

Site update

So I am trying to get some more traffic to the site.  In that attempt I have parked a few of my other sites here in hopes that this site will pick up and take over where the others left off.  Time will only tell I suppose, and what better time to make the change then at the end of the month.

Lame site and Xbox to boot

I was starting to think that my site was getting little to no attention.  I hoped that if I were to update it to the new version of WordPress it would spur my interest again … but yet all it has done is create 3-4 new posts all talking about an upgrade.  Not exactly what I call good times in the world of blogging.

After hearing Chase talk about his new fairly new Xbox setup with XBoxMediaCenter installed I was wanting to get an Xbox and do the same.  And I think the stars might be aligned just right or something as Brian and I were talking the other day and he actually just picked up an Xbox and is looking to sell it, even has the DVD remote which is a plus.  So after talking with him, I was going to go to Vegas and get it this weekend, but I had forgotten this was the same weekend Alexis was coming to visit me for her spring break.  I have made other plans on getting the Xbox though so I should have it Monday afternoon if all goes as planned. 

From there I am planning on installing a new hard drive in it (120 gigs) and installing XBoxMediaCenter, this will replace the MythTV Box that I recently created.  I have no plans on getting rid of the MythTV box but instead, I am going to turn that into a Fileserver/Backend/Desktop and just stream all recordings to the Xbox.  I am creating a new category on the site here for the Xbox and will be posting updates to how the install goes and everything that I do to it.

Upgrade worked

Well looks like the upgrade worked … well there does seem to be an issue with the rich text editor… I guess I will fix that at some point.  I also plan on doing daily updates again, we will see how that goes.
