    We've had reports of people outside the US having trouble accessing the site. This is due to routing issues at an upstream provider. Cages have been rattled. All we can do now is wait. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Portable Media/Video Players

    I need a new portable media player. I have a SanDisk sansa e280 with Rockbox. It's great. I'll probably keep using it as my MP3 player. But it does badly as a video player because of its small screen. So, I need a new one that has a larger screen. No Zune, no iPod. Both require special...

    Mainsite down. 2009-01-01

    The mainsite was getting 502's. This is because the database server seems to have crapped itself. It's not responding to pings. Since I don't have access to the database server, we'll have to wait for someone who does. In the meantime, I took the site offline. Have a happy new year...
