Cheap PVR and Geek Music...

I've just received an email shot from Bigpockets.co.uk, advertising a 'build it yourself' PVR (hard disk video recorder) for what seems like less than £20!

You can see it for yourself here: www.247buyers.com/mailshot/270208. Unfortunately, the chassis (a real bargain at £8.99) is currrently unavailable, but from the impressively rapid response to my enquiry, they're processing more stock. I may just have to buy myself one!

In other news, I was made aware of the musical works of Jonathan Coulton during a one of the TWiT podcasts earlier in the week. Would it be uncharitable to describe him as the musical equivalent of Scott Adams? I'm going to have to download some of his tunes, anyway. One of the songs he wrote is featured as the 'victory theme' to Portal, the addictive puzzle game from the HalfLife 2 'Orange Box' set. I may have to buy it, since the reviews certainly sing its praises... although my family may never see me again, since I tend to get quite, well, obsessed!
