Wow. Times flies.
Just not much going on around here. Some thunder & lightning today but nothing really close. Unusual, for us, to have thunder & lightning. Nice though!
Didnâ€™t do a whole lot this past week. SSDD every day for me.
Did get a new Blue Ray burner for my computer for archiving things. Blank Blue Ray discs are still a bit spendy though. $32 for 15 discs! Hoping next year theyâ€™ll come down in price as more and more of us â€œtechiesâ€ move over to blue ray. Kind of like CDâ€™s did when they first came out. My first (1x) external cd burner cost me almost $800 and blank cdâ€™s were like $5.00 each. THAT was spendy. Of course, you can buy 100 blank cdâ€™s now for $10 if you look around. I think blank blue ray discs will be about the same in a couple of years. Hopefully.
I see where Obama threatened us â€œold folksâ€ and retired Military by maybe withholding our monthly checks if this debt thing doesnâ€™t go his way. Asshole. Whereâ€™s that red-neck with a rifle when you really need him? (Not that I really want anyone hurt!!!) Heâ€™s the worst President weâ€™ve ever had. If it had been me getting the Medal of Honor, I wouldnâ€™t have accepted it from him.
My new Incredible 2 phone is still freaking out on me. Thing just reboots when ever it wants. Runs sluggish most of the time and the mail program keeps having to be forced closed. So far Iâ€™m not really impressed with this phone or the Android operating system.
SWMBO and I went on our usual Friday date yesterday. Itâ€™s so nice to spend time with her. Went to Qâ€™dobas(?) in Gig Harbor then spent WAY too much money at COSTCO. Big chuck of change for a new lawn trailer thingy. Bought a blue-ray copy of â€œClose Encounters of the Third Kindâ€ to test the new blue-ray drive I got.
Dang thing keeps telling me to switch to a vga/d-sub connector and use analog video and nothing Iâ€™ve done so far has pleased the CyberlinkDVD program. Just wonâ€™t play. Ripped it to my hard drive and it plays great with VLC. I even disabled my video card in bios; but it didnâ€™t help. Ah well. May have to upgrade my video hardware if weâ€™re going to get any move blue-ray movies. Which we probably wonâ€™t; but who knows.
Anywho, thatâ€™s my week. Boring, ainâ€™t it!
