I just moved to an ok (Not great, not terrible) part of south berkeley, and got a 3 bedroom condo for $410k. Houses a block from me are going for around $430k. This is also 6 blocks from BART, so you can easily work in the city, and live in the east bay. Schools: No idea, but then again, I have no kids either.

I'm using component cable. Works great when I plug it directly into the TV, but then I don't get surround sound. Plug it into the receiver, and it jitters, but sound works. Plug the video into the TV and audio into the receiver: Possible, but I'd need to extend the cables, and it makes it more of a pain to switch over.

The PS2 I have plugged into my home theatre setup, and it jitters up and down every other frame. The media PC hooked up via HDMI has no issues. Thus, using an emulator will grant me superior performance, and legible text. Looking into the issue appears to indicate that the problem is that I have a receiver that upscales the video, and a TV that does the same. However, neither my receiver nor my TV seem to have settings allowing me to fully fix it. I've made it _better_, but its still garbage for my RPG collection. I'm in the process of setting up and evaluating PCSX2, as it would greatly enhance my ability to enjoy my game collection, without buying a TV just for PS2 usage.

Tiger Team, Episode 2. Penetration testers use an RFID skimmer to clone the passcard of the owner of a jewelery company, then use the skimmed data to spoof the card reader to get into his office. From there, they crack the safe, and take a picture of themselves wearing all the jewelery that was in said safe.

Tiger Team was very interesting to watch, I'm sad it got canceled.

The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
