  • 7.1 Channel Audio for Your Computer

    7.1 SoundI4U reports that when 5.1 audio on your computer isn’t enough, go 7.1:

    Japans M-Audio announces availability of its Resolution 7.1 sporting a 192kHz/24bit DAC.

    The Revelution 7.1 features 7.1 DVD digital output. It uses the new Envy24HT audio controller.
    The Card supports Dolby AC-3, Dolby DTS, Dolby Pro-Logic and Dolby EX, SRS TruSurround and SRS Circle Surround II.

    Additionally it supports the following software systems. DirectSound3D, A3D1.0, and EAX1.0/2.0.
    The Card supports Mac OS X and Windows XP with Windows Media Player 9.

    The anticipated price, 16,625 Yen, is about $140USD or about $130 Euros.  Not too shabby.

  • Darwin’s Tic Tac Toe

    This is a cool project that I stumbled upon at freshmeat today:

    Darwin’s Tic Tac Toe uses simple evolutionary techniques to evolve a set of randomly-connected Neural Networks, with random weights, to play Tic Tac Toe (Norts and Crosses). To speed up the process, it has been written in a client-server architecture. Clients can connect to the server and grab a small batch of neural networks, do some processing, and send the results back to the server.

  • Sharpreader

    Wow.  Via Sam Ruby, Sharpreader looks like it has potential.

    If falls under the YA3PA (Yet Another 3 Paned Aggregator) category, but I like the threaded comment feel to it.  Screenshots that contain my name (this one is on a comment) are also a bonus.

  • Kitten


    We picked up a kitten today.

    You have been warned.
