Why don’t high school bands *ever* grow up?

So I’m perusing facebook today and notice that there are a bunch of high school bands who think they’re “punk” having a concert called the “Cleveland Punk Reunion Show” which makes no sense first of all since the bands playing don’t live in cleveland they live in the burbs, secondly it’s at a community center so… no beer… It’s really quite sad considering these people graduated high school 4+ years ago.  I look at the pictures of these bands websites and go “Holy crap has time stood still for them?” everyone looks the same, dresses the same, and is probably still doing nothing…. High School is over folks… time to get on with life.

Ugh why do I even care…..

Streetlight Manifesto – Ass kickery

THANK GOD it’s finally here, the new Streetlight Manifest CD is freakin’ amazing.  I preordered it 2 weeks ago and have been counting the days.  It’s about time someone released an album that was damn worth my money 🙂 Thanks SM and keep up the awesome work!

gOS development kit & Mainboard – VIA PC2500E 1.5Ghz

So many of you have probably alread heard about the walmart PC for $200 that has sold out online and is raising some serious competition in the low end PC market. This PC runs on a 1.5Ghz Via C7 processor which consumes only 20Watts of power. The board it comes with has SATA, DDR2, 8 USB ports, Onboard Video & LAN. It’s a very very nice piece of hardware that can be purchased at clubit.com for a measly $60 + shipping. We picked up one to give it a go. We’ve got it running Fedora 8 at 1280×1024 resolution at a acceptable amount of response time. The video looks crisp and clear and everything worked right out of the box and it’s pretty amazing considering it only cost us $60….

Here are some photos of our new found toy:
