Happy New Year!
It was a nice month, but the break is over and I’ve returned back to work. Christmas at the Rosser house was a low-key affair, mostly spend decompressing from hectic work schedules and enjoying family and friends’ company. My daughter’s 2nd Christmas, this year was the year she figured out the whole “presents are fun” thing, and we had a great time. We scheduled holiday-themed shows on our Media Center, and while they enjoyed the shows I (quietly, to myself) nitpicked the video quality and encoding bugs from my Comcast box. If you haven’t seen them, our current pick-of-the-month show to watch is Creature Comforts on BBC America I’m told that it’s been out quite a long time, but it’s new to me. In case you haven’t seen it, it’s a Wallace & Grommit -style show where they take real(?) audio interviews of people and animate claymation animals to the soundtrack. The results are often hilarious, especially if you enjoy British humour.
It will probably be a couple of days before I catch up completely with the backlog of email and so forth, but I’m back on the job. We’ve got several DVB Radio and EPG issues under investigation presently, along with a couple of Standby/Resume bugs. The mood around the halls is pleasant, unlike the frantic activity from deadline pressure in November and December. A few new faces, a few old faces moved on to other teams, it’s business as usual here in eHome. It’s back to work, and back to fixing bugs.
