Free SVG Viewer

Adobe has a free SVG viewer here :
They've apparently stopped supporting it, but you can still see the download link at the bottom of the page for WinXP.

For thumbnails from Windows Explorer, I downloaded Renesis Player from here :
You may have to restart Windows Explorer (or even Windows) to get SVG thumbnails generated.


Windows Vista Media Center and Acer Aspire L5100 - HTPC

OK, yesterday I was thinking about using Mythbuntu / MythTV as a PC-based media center (home theater PC). I didn't know, but it seems like Windows Vista Premium has a "media center" application which should be sufficient for my needs.

I don't want to put a lot of time into this (we don't watch that much TV), so we'll see what we get out of the box with Vista.

One problem -- our TVs are old (like I said - we don't watch much TV)!. We have a 1994-5 (??) big old Phillips TV, and a Dec 2004 Sony WEGA KV-24FS120. I'm going to try this experiment on the Sony.


Ripping DVDs to disk and play back

While cleaning up things a bit, I realized we have some one-of-a-kind DVDs (wedding videos etc.), so having multiple "soft" backups of these on computer drives makes more sense than having DVDs that will scratch and fade with age. You can always buy another copy of a movie, but last time I checked, our wedding DVD wasn't on Netflix -- even in the comedy section ;-)
