My car stranded me on the side of the freeway this morning, the alternator belt dropped off. My Subaru dealer suggested that 'rocks or animals' might be responsible. Yeah, the gophers in my yard must have it in for me. Anyway add 'car' to the list of things I've broken recently. I got my projector back today at least, and chilled in the home theater for several hours tonight while I wrote some code. I should be back in action on nearly all fronts tomorrow, my productivity has been abysmal of late.
- I've been enjoying the HBO Series "Rome" via Netflix. I could never comit the time to actually keep up with a miniseries while it's on, but HBO's original programming is interesting.
- On Thursday the home theater recliners Jen and I bought come in. They are very nice Palliser leather home theater chairs. I've also made some cosmetic changes to the home theater, so I will experiment with lighting and try to take some decent pictures; I think this is going to involve me carrying lamps down there.
- I often post about audio/video related gatherings, often as part of the Klipsch Forums group. This week people from Indianapolis, Maryland, Chicago, and California are coming up for a Lake Country gathering taking place at my house and two others. Friday at my place is the first event and we are watching "300" on BluRay, this will be sandwiched between what is usually hours of system tweaking, scene demoing, watching trailers, playing HD games, equipment auditioning, and audio geek stuff like that. Lots of jazz and beer, and I should be fully recharged by sunday afternoon.
That's all for now. I have WORKING HARDWARE so I can resume my technical articles. I need to get some sleep now so I can perform my scrum master duties tomorrow.
