Roku Firmware Download

So, over on my account, you'll find a link to download the Roku's firmware image. I thought I should mention that in a venue more people will see. I'm keen to share notes with anyone who's also poking at this. To prove you're serious, please include the significance of in any introductory emails on Roku stuff. Feel free to pass this on to others of a curious bent, as I'm sure there's plenty for people to poke at.

The NED (Netflix Device) is quite a slick little box, and I highly recommend it if you're a Netflix Watch-it-now addict like me. Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Outer Limits, Little Britain... really, this is a great way to watch classic television. It'd be great if Roku would fulfill their obligations under the GPL, as I've got one of their boxes in my grubby little paws as we speak. Whoops, spoke too soon! They have released source: Roku Netflix Player GPL sources. Thank you, Roku!

In other news, I'm between jobs at the moment. Since I'm no longer there, I can mention that I was at Paglo Labs, which is a cool idea. Someday I'll likely regret leaving the place. Unfortunately, the role wasn't really fitting as time went on (but, I stuck it out through the crunch of the Public Beta launch). There are about four people who seem to be warming to the idea of my employ, but I'm always keen to find more potential positions. There are likely two more going into the top of the hopper in the next day or two, but if you know anyone looking for an information person, let me know (that's stuff like data mining, search, or machine learning). Mo' option, mo' better.
