Waste of Cleveland

I hit up the Taste of Cleveland today. If this "festival" or whatever it is supposed to be represents the diversity within our city, then we sorely lack it. There were multiple pizza places, a few bakeries, a handful of BBQ places, and one or two culturally diverse places: New Orleans style, Japanese, German, Indian (as in India, not Native American). We had some food from Schnitzel House (schnitzel sandwich), an Italian place (a 12oz bowl of pasta), and a bakery (Canoli and Strawberry Cream dessert), plus two sodas. The food was alright, but nothing spectacular or unique. The worst part was it was a complete rip off for barely two "meals": $6 parking, $10 in entrance fees, and $30 in food tickets. I don't know why I keep going back to this thing every year.

Since my last post I've gotten a couple new geek toys. My shiny new Toshiba X205-S9349 as my primary PC and a Logitech Harmony 890 Universal Remote (thanks to my awesome girlfriend!). I love the laptop, but as far as Vista vs XP my advice on Vista is: don't bother. Even if you can get Vista to work 100% with all of your existing software and hardware, the only technological advancement it has over XP is Direct X 10, and right now there aren't any really mind blowing DX10 games out (but they're coming...).
