I experienced a major tech overhaul at my place over the past week.
First, I finally got a DVR. I can now pause, record, and rewind live TV, and subscribe to shows that I like watching. On my DVR now, a lot of CSI on Spike TV, Rick & Steve: The Happiest Gay Couple and Real Momentum (LGBT documentaries) on Logo, Weeds on ShowTime, and a lot of Spongebob for the Sprout.
I got a new TV for my bedroom, a 26″ Flat Panel LCD with a built-in DVD player. The girl and I had a friend come over and help us mount it on the wall. It looks spectacular. I was also able to connect my PC to it and can use it as a monitor. This is good for watching subscriptions or music videos downloaded from iTunes. Sweetness.
Have been using a Verizon aircard as my main internet access point at home. High speed is finally available at my apartment and so I will be running a Gigabit router (w00t!!) over a DSL connection. I say “will be” as the kit is to be delivered on Wednesday.
That’s the tech round-up. Decent, eh?
In other news, Threadless has reprinted my favorite Tee, Pandamonium. I have it in green, but think I will order one in grey. Also, they’re having a $10 sale so I will probably end up spending $100 in tees.
