Good morning folks!  Happy Post Thanksgiving to all our State side friends.  In typical holiday fashion, I managed to eat so much food I still feel full the next morning.  We had one heck of a spread including a 25LB turkey and all the sides you could imagine.  What was more amazing was that for some reason, the turkey didn't make me sleepy at all.  In fact, I was wide awake the whole night, staring at the ceiling wondering if the triptophan would ever kick in.  Sadly, it didn't.  So it's lots of coffee for me this AM followed by a late afternoon nap for sure.

Good afternoon friends, welcome back to Hot Hardware :)  Yesterday I received a chance to see a free screening of Shrek 2 at a new DLP cinema that recently opened.  I must say, besides the movie being outrageously funny, the presentation using DLP was amazing.  The difference in picture quality is like comparing a DVD to a VHS; definitely worth the extra cash (if you have to pay).  Anyhow, let's get to the real reason you are here....
