My 23 minutes of internet interview fame with Jackie & Leo Laporte of the TWiT network

On Thursday we discussed such vital topics of interest as Hamentaschen, how to make your matzo balls float and, more importantly, touched on internet safety for our children.

Click Here to go to and watch the video, I don't show up for about the first 5 minutes of the film.

I wish to thank the ODTV team for creating this video clip and for so generously sharing it under the creative commons license.

Recipe from the TWiT Army Mess Hall - Sauerkraut and Sausages

My family likes garlicky knockwurst and bratwursts so that's what we use but you could use kielbasa, whitewurst or any other cooked sausage you'd like.

First a Noose & now a KKK Hood, when is enough enough at UCSD?

After the noose incident of last week now a hood with racist symbols was draped over the statue of Theodore Geisel at the UCSD campus.

The following is a clip from the local news station describing the event

Disney-ABC may pull over the air channel from Cablevision

We are now entering a situation where Disney is demanding that a cable company (Cablevision) pay for the rights to broadcast their 'over the air' channel, ABC, on the cable.  The blackout date is Sunday and is time to coincide with the Oscars presentation.  Although some have said that 'You can always watch the Oscars via the over the air broadcast" many of us, including myself, do not have digital antennas on our roofs/balconies/etc. that would allow our digital television to pick up the broadcast.  In my we are on the ragged edge of the digital signal and are unlikely to be able to pick up ABC via any type of antenna.  Content providers have the absolute right to sell their 'cable/satellite' only content to distributors at whatever price that they feel they can get/deserve/are entitiled to, however it is ridiculous for them to try and charge for content which is distributed freely over the air.
