Hicks - you can move this but I thought I would get the most response here.
Hey guys. I'm here for a week to close out my apartment and settle something here before heading back. Might be a little longer if things keep getting worse in Baghdad.
Does anyone know anything about slingbox? From what I have read it sounds like it would be great for me over there. Here is the idea:
I would like to find someone in Indy who has cable, high speed internet, semi-computer saavy (meaning they would understand how to hook this up), has paypal and would be willing to share their cable and cable costs with me. I could either get slingbox on ebay and have it sent to you or you could get it and I could reimburse you. If you needed to get slinglinks, I would have no problem with that. I do have access to satellite there so connection from my end wouldn't be a problem. The only stumbling block I could see would be getting the software to download on my laptop. It would have to be sent to me. I don't think it would have to be installed at the time you hook it up but I could be wrong. If anyone knows anything about this could you let me know.
