We’re gearing up for a garage sale Saturday, Saturday, Saturday! GBAs $15! Wireless speakers $20! Cables $1! Everything must go!
I was riding my bike this morning. A stray pit bull saw me and started pursuit. Thankfully, I managed to outrun it. I was a bit worried that my $50 bike would fall apart during the chase.
Helped Vanessa make apple pie last night. We had trouble getting the crust material to cooperate, but it turned out very good anyway. She’s so kind to make pie for me even though she’s not that big on it.
Installed internet alarm monitoring through NextAlarm. $12 a month with a pre-paid one year contract. This means we can get rid of our land line and move to cell phone with the money we save. I had to install a special VOIP phone adapter for the alarm and a wireless bridge for it. Now it will email me when the alarm goes off. More for less money! The cons of this were that I had to sift through the internet looking for the programming manual for our alarm and learn about its inner workings. It took a whole day for me to get it all set up.
Got the PS3 set up and started playing with it. Downloaded some demos, videos, etc. blu-ray Planet Earth disc on its way from Netflix. Listened to mp3s with the blurry-gloopy visualizer. Look at this cute video of how it does slideshows. For some reason, it doesn’t expand PS2 games to the full height of the TV. They are shrunk a bit for some reason. You can tell Windows Media Player 11 to act as a DLNA server to share media with the PS3, which I got working. (Need DIVX support, Sony.) I did the PSP version of the “remote desktop” and watched videos and music on the PSP in another room. I also tried it over the internet. A bit laggy, but videos were watchable. I was LOVING the wireless controller. FINALLY, no more “don’tsteponthecable. don’tsteponthecable. don’tsteponthecable. don’tsteponthecable. don’tsteponthecable. don’tsteponthecable. don’tsteponthecable. don’tsteponthecable. don’tsteponthecable.” If you were to map a 3-year-old’s movement through the house, 99% of their movement is directly on top of the PS2 controller cables.
