The Daily Button – March 10th, 2008

After getting my HTPC 90% of the way setup I have decided to take a few months off from the site and enjoy it. With that said, John will be taking over operations from here on in. There might be a Linux flavor to the news and Tip Of The Day but (we) need to reach out to the inner penguin every now and then.

In my free time I plan on starting an organization to help orphaned tuner cards that were caught in the horrible upgrade cycles that have plagued so many HTPCs over the years. Think of all those PVR 250’s that are just lying there without a home. It is really sad. Look for my upcoming Telethon.
