AVRant #60: Checking your work

April 19th, 2008

How smart are NASA scientists? Almost as smart a 13 year old. How geeky would your kids be if you could modify their genetic codes? Chris wants to know if you can use power cords for speaker cables. Assembling an MRI machine is hard. Blue Jeans Cable’s response blew up on the Internet – you go Kurt! Can you surf to AV Rant on your Blackberry? Let us know. Comcast wants to develop a P2P Bill of Rights and Responsibilities. Wow, just wow. Dina thinks that Tom should be part of the discussion. Tom agrees. Daniel is working on his letter to Time Warner. How Moms and Dads are different. Thanks for listening and don’t forget to vote for us at Podcast Alley.

    Just for the record. Clint, Jim, YOUR HUSBAND, Tom, and yes, even YOU (admitted) that you look like Claudia Black.

    You MUST become a Stargate fan now – it’s the right thing to do. I mean, come on – show some support for your look-a-like!

    Honestly, IMO, Dina is hotter than Claudia Black. But don’t tell her I said so.

    You all will have to admit there’s just something about a woman with a big gun, however. It worked for Lara Croft and she isn’t even real. Now it’s working for Claudia Black… Yeah, Dina’s got a knife, and that’s cool. But just think how awesome she would be if she brought a shot gun or something to the next podcast recording at Tom’s house? Right Tom??

    Jim… Oh GREAT! Give her ideas why don’t you! 😯

    Hey, it works for me!!! And she is WAY hotter than Claudia…

    …for those of you who don’t know, I was dating Claudia a couple of years ago. Don’t believe me? Ask Clint -we video-chatted her while at we were at CES…

    About the comment from Alexandre regarding accessing your site from a Blackberry…I live in Toronto and decided to try myself. A message appears saying “You have been banned from AVRant. That’s hard to do so you must be very proud. Have a nice day.” Sounds to me like it’s your site sending the message. I have never experienced a problem like this before.

    Yes, it’s true in Canada we pay crazy rates for wireless data. Mostly because we don’t have the competition you have in the states – so the carriers up here have us by the $%#$s. And, we do spell a lot of things up here differently. Alexandre is pronounced the same as Alexander. We also spell center (centre), colour (color), favour (favour). Why, because we’re a little different – and, I guess part of our French heritage.

    Thanks

    Hmm… maybe it’s a Canadian thing. I’ll have my people look into it. Oh Clint! Could you do me a favor… oops, I mean favour? 🙂

    Here’s an interesting follow up to the German Boy proves NASA wrong article…
    http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20080417/od_afp/spaceastronomygermanyusoffbeat_080417010230
    Apparently, the boy was wrong.

    I guess a lot of news agencies didn’t check their facts and verify the NASA and ESA quotes before posting the story.

    Re: Don
    “Centre, colour, favour, neighbour, analyse” those are all British spellings that us Canucks didn’t rid ourselves of like the Yanks did when they declared indepedence from Great Britain. However, we do use the Americanized spelling/naming of car parts (tyres vs tires, bonnets vs hoods, boots vs trunks) Canadians just don’t know who to emulate. 😉

    Hey, J! Nothing says “Mother’s Day” like a sawed-off shot gun! Just an idea…

    Nope. Can’t browse AVRANT via my Blackberry either. It says: You have been banned from AVRant. That’s hard to do so you must be very proud. Have a nice day…..and that using the Blackberrys WiFi connection at my house.

    sorry Dina but there is small resemblance between you and that Claudia Black girl, I just google’d her, and must say yes.
