  32. <description><![CDATA[<a href="/upload/glas_cooling.jpg"><img src="" class="right" /></a>Not satisfied with my NEST thermostats perfect operational record, I decided it was time to complicate my life with a less popular, less supported but much better looking smart thermostat.  Enter the GLAS.  I knew it was Windows 10 IOT based, but you couldn't really tell until it prompted me for my <a href="/upload/glas_login.jpg">Microsoft login</a> and then of course the Cortana integration also gave it away.  It reported as "Windows Phone" to my router, so clearly the remains of that ecosystem have found a new home in this thermostat.  My Microsoft fanboy satisfied, I quickly learned how limited it is compared to the NEST, save for the awesome touchscreen and <a href="/upload/glas_air_quality.jpg">air quality monitoring</a>.  Since I'm not a thermostat power user it suits my needs, but definitely a step down in terms of features from the NEST.  Hopefully that's rectified by future software updates because it <a href="/upload/glas_heating.jpg">looks</a> <a href="/upload/glas_cooling.jpg">amazing</a>.]]></description>

  56. <description><![CDATA[<a href=""><img src="" class="right" width="125" alt="Dolby Atmos" /></a>At the behest of every tech magazine I read, I decided my <a href="/news.asp?startat=article&article=1220">5.1 surround system</a> was in need of an upgrade.  No sooner did I put the idea of a new receiver in my head, than Woot <a href="">obliged me with a sale</a>.  My existing 5.1 8 ohm speakers were up to the task, save for two additional ceiling mounted ones for the final <a href="">5.1.2 configuration</a> for the minimum Atmos experience.  A quick trip to hell (my attic) and I was ceiling speaker enabled.  Having already upgraded to an <a href="">Optoma UHD60</a> last year, I was now Atmos and 4K HDR equipped.  My <a href="">Xbox One X</a> began pumping out all the goodies immediately, save for the Blu-Ray of Oblivion which for some reason only gave me Dolby True HD instead of Atmos despite supporting it.  I'm almost happy I have one last configuration item to pick at, as long as it's a minor one. All the "demos" work perfectly in crisp object oriented Dolby Atmos glory.  Full equipment list below:<br />Receiver: <a href="">Yamaha TSR-5810</a>, Projector: <a href="">Optoma HD60</a><br />Source: Xbox One X, Screen: 10ft x 6ft x 15ft throw<br />Speakers: <a href="">Klipsch HD Theater 300</a> + two ceiling speakers]]></description>

  72. <description><![CDATA[After neglecting this blog for exactly one year, I decided it was time for an update.  I blame bookface for the lack of updates of course, but really it's because blogs are dead per Senator Kelley.  Well no longer!  Blogs are not dead!  I'm bringing this one back!  It's a beautiful 65 degrees today in South Carolina, and 38 in Michigan.  The only regret I have from the move is losing all the great Michigan folks that for whatever reason refuse to follow me down here.  I can only hope next year I am writing about everyone that also moved.]]></description>

Hopefully Lila and Lucy can look back on this trauma free and tell their friends how irresponsible her father was even when they were a toddlers.]]></description>
