Hrm, I would have expected to only make cents if provided with adequate bills.

No, just smash up a Coinstar(tm) machine.  It's easier.

Cory Monteith didn't die from heroin addiction. He died from being on Glee.
That show MUST be cancelled for the good of humanity.

I noticed today that Food Network has not reinstated Paula Deen.  This is a travesty.  So I sent them this message in their "contact us" section.


I have been watching Food Network for more than a decade.  Although cooking shows are what I prefer, there's still plenty of other good entertainment on the channel.

Now it's time to say goodbye.  You can fix this.

Shame on you for discontinuing your relationship with Paula Deen.  This was a knee-jerk and cowardly reaction to the liberal/communist political pressure manufactured by the racism machine fueled by hate mongers such as Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and B. Hussein Obama, all race-baiters who benefit by inciting racial tensions.

Paula Deen is a kind, gentle, loving human being who wouldn't intentionally hurt anyone.

My viewership of Food Network will resume when you put her back on the air.

Sincerely,
All Sensible People Everywhere.

They said they were not going to renew her contract before the incident. They had to make room for more
competition cooking crap, "Kitchen Killer" or something. A show where the chef who doesn't make it gets killed
and cooked for the next round.

Er, here's the inside scoop concerning The Food Network (and everything else by Scripps Networks)...

They are not making any new shows for any channels at all.

They didn't hang Paula Deen out to dry because of the controversy surrounding them. They were planning of not producing her show, inasmuch as they aren't doing any new shows.

My guess is that they are positioning themselves to be sold to someone else, and are trying to make the numbers look nice by doing The Big Stupid.

This is what happens when the CFO runs the company.

That makes sense (well, it doesn't from a common sense point of view, but I understand the thinking).

However ... they've done more than just "not making any new shows."  If you poke through the web site and browse their celebrity chefs / hosts, it's clear that Paula Deen has been stripped from the roster.

And of course they're not airing any of her shows -- new, old, or otherwise.  She has clearly been removed from the channel.  And it pisses me off to see Scripps cave in to pressure from demagogues.

Well, the other awful thing going on at Scripps is how, internally, they have become so 'inclusive' that they have a lot of incompetent people running things just to keep the numbers balanced.

With that degree of inclusiveness, likely, Paula Deen's notoriety pissed someone (or perhaps several someones) off at Scripps.

The show will be called Chez Spica....

I blame Obama for firing Paula Dean in retaliation for Trayvon.

XBNC on Raspberry Pi works well.

I just pulled that off today, and it does a fantastic job. Downloaded Big Buck Bunny and put it on the 32 gig card for it to play, and it played it 1080p without any issues whatsoever. I also streamed several YouTube videos with no trouble (also 1080p).

So, yeah. It's an extremely cool piece of hardware.

512 or 256 MB model?


[#] Thu Aug 01 2013 09:35:28 EDT from fleeb @ Uncensored

I believe this is the 512 model. It already has HDMI out.

That'd be my choice, then, since the Pi also has a composite video output, and I do not yet own a television with HDMI (standard def ftw!).

Videos of lolcats on YouTube are far more interesting than most of the crap that's on the air.

I note that it's a very weak linux machine, but is capable of doing the video out that it can do because of some graphics hardware somewhere. So anything related to video should be compiled to use that hardware.

I tried using VLC with it, and found it to be unusuable. But, they have images of XBMC which do a fine job.

You are correct. The BCM2835 SoC has a hardware video decoder, but your software stack has to be built to make use of it. XBMC does so.

We need a rpi room (or more general embedded / electronic / hackery room.  I am afraid to make one as my last attempt at making a room did not go so well.  I suggest someone who has been on the uncensored board longer than I have, construct said room and move the appropriate conversations to said room.

Seconded?
