We played volleyball in the park yesterday after the evening service. Vanessa, me bruvah Ethan, and I were on the same team which was rather humorous, since Ethan and I can be rather clumsy. We had a pileup at the net at one point. Either I need to learn how to hit the ball correctly or perfect my slapping-frantically-at-the-ball method.
Hauled a Vizio GV47L home on a cart the other day. Vanessa mentions the ordeal of getting it home. It supports 1080p only through HDMI connections. Ironically, we don’t have anything 1080p to plug into it. The VGA input only goes up to 1360 x 768, but that’s all my computer can handle anyway. If you have a widescreen monitor and are looking for wallpapers, go to flickr and look through pictures tagged with 16:9. Most games don’t seem to support widescreen unless you edit config files or do other workarounds. It’s usually worth it, though. Rise of Nations, Ghost Recon, and Jedi Outcast are spiffy in widescreen. The best demo of HDTV (without buying a pricey bluray or HDDVD player or pricey cable packages) seems to be over-the-air network broadcasts. Yeah, just plug an antenna into it. Now, what to do with the old CRT TV that is about as heavy as a large calf*? We can’t really put it anywhere, for fear it would topple on the lad, so to craiglist it goes.
