…went Back to School!
Well after getting screwed in the computer industry almost 3 years ago now, I’ve decided to go back to school. I start this Monday at 8am. I will be going for an Associates of Applied Science in Electronics Engineering Technology at Joliet Junior College, the Nation’s oldest community college. I’m most likely going to continue on and pursue a Bachelors.
The cool thing is a bunch of the classes I took last time I was going to JJC (oh, 8 years ago ) count towards the new degree so I won’t have to take the full class list.
I’m looking forward to going back and have been ever since I got serious about going back a few months ago.
Today I became one of the 1.3 million XM subscribers.
I’ve considered XM off and on for months but never got it because I just don’t listen to the radio and I didn’t think XM would be that much better. When I’m in my car I listen to MP3s exclusively on my capable car stereo and when I’m at home I have winamp.
Earlier today I was over at tivocommunity.com and saw a posting about a CES release that TiVo and XM are going to work together and expand the TiVo Home Media Option.
That rekindled my interest and I consulted google for XM sites. I came across xmfan.com and spend a few hours there.
Between them and xmradio.com and the announcement of them going 100% conmercial free as well as the addition of channels sold me.
I ordered a XM PCR and should have it this Wednesday. The PCR is the cheapest way to give XM a trial. If I like it I’ll probably get the XM tunder for my XM read car stereo. If I don’t, well, back it goes or to ebay.
The future of my site is still unknown, so while I figure out what I want to do with it, I’m plaing around with Moveable Type.
