Note To Television Ad Folks: Showing me how much resolution your tv has over mine, on my tv, is wasted effort. Stop and think about it; Iâ€™m not going to see it. Just thought yâ€™all ought to know.
Not a whole lot going on today. Dump run for plastics. (Dropping off. Not picking up. Nevermind.) Post Office to mail off an order for a new 146/440 antenna and pick up a Thrive order UPS was too lazy to deliver.
All while itâ€™s raining, of course. In the past couple of weeks weâ€™ve exceeded our Annual Average and have begun working on next yearâ€™s. Iâ€™m still expecting it to really snow sometime in the next month. A good snow. Something to stop traffic around here. (Which, honestly, would be only 1/2 an inch or so.)
Gathering all my old electronics to donate to Goodwill or Faith In Action. Lotâ€™s of computer stuff Iâ€™ll never use (donâ€™t know why I saved it in the first place). Couple of old 8â€ tvâ€™s. Not sure what to do with my Laser Disc Player and collection of Laser Discs. (Several Thousand Dollars worth that I havenâ€™t watched in 8-9 years or so. Thereâ€™s no way Iâ€™ll ever recoup that money. And I sold my collectors copy of â€œWho Shot Roger Rabbitâ€ that showed Jessica Rabbit sans underwear before I learned what it was worth.)
Yeah, thatâ€™s me: If I bought a movie on VHS I probably bought it on Laser Disc and then on DVD. Now Iâ€™m replacing everything on Blue Ray when I can. (Although I do look for the bargains.) All in the never-ending quest for better resolution and sound. But I do convert from .mkv to .mp4 to save space on our NAS. But the quality doesnâ€™t seem to suffer much. Did the same with audio: 8-track to cassette to cdâ€™s to .mp3.
Think Iâ€™ll go make some Jigglers before I hit the rack.
