MLB seems a lot like RIAA

[article image] Looks like another professional sporting league is going after DVRs and Placeshifting. When will these guys learn to stop clinging to TV blackouts in order to fill their stardiums. There has to be a better way to stay profitable, that doesn’t involve hurting your customers.

Weekend over.

Wednesday, May 30th, 2007

I spent most of the 4.5 day weekend away from my computer and e-mail. It was quite nice to not do any work for a few days.  Ruthie’s Bat Mitzvah was on Saturday so that kept us pretty busy, but other than that it was a fairly relaxing weekend.

Unfortunately as soon as the long week ended, so did the relaxation.  5am alarms on Tuesday, a large pile of SCALE e-mails/bills, and then work hit me like a ton of bricks.  Its amazing how much will pile up over a long weekend.  Anyways, I think I’m mostly caught up.  Just a few remaining scale-chairs e-mails to respond to before I’m caught up with the pending items from the weekend.
