Site issues & X41 Tablet update

I apologize. My site has been experiencing some issues with it's database server. I'm currently talking with my web host to get these problems ironed out, as it seems that my database server is the same as their own database server, so I'm inclined to think they want to fix it soon. In the mean-time, I'm taking a look into some wordpress caching plugins to take the load off the server and to keep the site working without the database connection. The downside of this is that I won't be able to keep track of how my site is performing with my stats program. Any wordpress gurus out there have suggestions? With that out of the way, I thought I'd post an update about my X41 Tablet PC order - it's back-ordered, and currently showing a July 19th ship date. This is getting dangerously close to my wedding date of August 6th, so unless I get it about a week before I leave for Tahiti, odds are I won't be able to play with it until the end of August - which would be torture.

I'm also working on some posts about and using it to stream your TV recordings to anywhere in the world, using Meedio and DVD Profiler to setup a cool database for your DVD collection, and compressing your recordings for consumption on your Palm OS device using MMPlayer. The first of these should be finished in a couple of days, so keep an eye out.
