So, I’m out in the boonies (a.k.a. “My parents’ house”), so my phone doesn’t work well. Only after I get “into town” (Springfield, MO – on my way to the airport to fly back) do I actually get a notice that I have a voicemail – which was left days ago! (Gee, I love AT&T)

I’m still looking into what the heck I will need for obtaining REAL HD content for this HD-capable TV of mine. Yes, I’m considering a TiVo series 3, but it’s still too expensive, IMHO.

A (minor) Christmas miracle December 7, 2007

I enjoy putting up our outdoor Christmas decorations every year. I usually do it in late November, or early December – so I have enough time to enjoy them before the holiday itself. And every year, I convince myself I’m going to allocate enough time so that I can actually verify all the lights work before stringing them up on the house.

Of course, I never do: When I eventually do start putting up lights, there’s only a few hours before dark, so I just rush headlong into stringing them up. Then, when lighting them, I get frustrated at how many “gaps” there are in the coverage – sub-sections of strings which remain dark, due to bad bulbs.
