Streaming to TV

I got myself a Dlink media renderer and paired it with MediaTomb running on my FreeBSD laptop and watched all 3 episodes of The Lost Room in glorious 1080i HDTV resolution.

All this over my Wifi network. Amazing geekness I must say the way the whole upnp thing works.

Counterstrike

My cousin convinced me to get a Steam account for Counter Strike multi player gaming. My id is shankerbalan.

I made an attempt to get CS working under Wine/FreeBSD. The install was smooth, both steam and counter strike installed just fine. Game play was too slow to be of any use and the menu had chopped fonts. This was with wine-0.9.42.

wine – 0.9.43 just hit the ports tree, lets see how that one goes. In the meantime, I am using Windows to not get killed.
