First, here is the SNL “Chronicles of Narnia”. Ben Peters showed it to me. Pretty funny.
Ok some projects I am working on:
- Rip CD’s to MP3 so we can get rid of the CDs. Maybe sell them to Amazon.
- Burn all Lipka pictures to DVD Slideshow.
- Set up Flickr.com pro account and upload our pictures (3 Gigs). Based on the raves of Rachel Luxemburg, I am going to try Flickr as our primary photo sharing vehicle. My only concern is privacy. I don’t think you can set permissions on it. I will see how it goes.
- Still decommissioning the Exchange server. Only one more mailbox and I can take it down. Then I can try to install Windows Media Center 2005 and attempt to make a home-grown TiVo.
- Help Katie to sell the kids car-bed and Missile Command on Craigslist.
- Continue to test Gmail. **Here is what I did.** I set up my primary mail box on Network Solutions. Then I set the box to forward my mail to my gmail account. Then I set the Gmail account to send as firstname.lastname@example.org. So I am basically using Gmail as my personal web mail server. Very little advertising, and nice interface. I will update as I use it.
