Dex,

First episode of Damages was intriguing, as you said. I am now on the third episode.  Tho, I can't see how this will be made into a series, versus just a one-season thing.

I finally watched the Island.  I loved it.  Hard to believe Michael Bay made it.  You were right on two counts.

I haven't started watching Life yet, but I have all the episodes to date.  I'll watch when I catch up on Battlestar, finish Damages and play Fallout3.

Yay?

Back to LA

Nov. 29th, 2007 | 09:10 pm

Seems as if I am taking a Sunday afternoon flight back to LA to be at a presentation Monday morning at 8am PDT.  The best news is I am due in New Jersey for a meeting on Tuesday morning.  Fun shit.

Across the country in 1 day... weeee-fuck!

1080P LCD Television!



Wee!

I would have never bought it on my own, but a little side work came up that paid $2000 to Brandon and I.  Brandon wanted me to replace that crappy Advent television, as well as get a new LCD for his front room, so he researched and researched.  Actually home entertainment stuff, Brandon is where I go.  I always try to get input from Dex, but I never see Dexalicious online anymore. :(

Anyway the highlights: 42 Inches.  1080P.  A lot of the 42 inch LCDs were still 720P.  This is 1080.  And the price $1200.  Philips or Samsung were like $1500 for a 720P.

Now it's a pain in the ass of redoing all my cabling, labeling and finally getting speaker stands for my front speakers. Oh and wall mounting my center instead of just setting on the television.

Winnar is me!

iFail at computers. My ongoing issue with my home computer randomly shutting off has gotten out of hand as of late. I finally troubleshot it down to a weird combination of my video card/motherboard, with the motherboard being the culprit. Weird thing is, I bought a replacement motherboard after borrowing and failing to get a loaner from Brandon to work. With his motherboard, I think that it also bad, with video AGP, but the intermittenness of the issues is really kicking my ass.

So I give up. I can't believe I am saying this, but I give up. I'm already 100$ into the just purchased motherboard (which I will return). This leaves me stuck in a P4 Prescott world, with DDR memory and AGP only. To replace those items are like: $250 (processor) $100 (memory) $200 on video card (depending on what I get). Add the $100 I'm already in and we are looking at $650. So, I'm buying a Dell. http://www.techbargains.com has some good deals on Dell Desktops; I'm not in a great rush since I have the laptop but its a huge oddity to stare at the small monitor for email instead of my 19 flat digital monitor.

I also blew $260 today at Ikea. I bought matching bookcases for my computer room (3 of them, 1 tall 2 short) and a tall standing shelf for my DVDs in the Front Room. I need to buy 2 more shelves for the DVD case and probably another unit soon as it is almost entirely full.

Ikea also had a coffee table I liked as well as a bed set to consider. They will have to wait until $$$ is more stable.

Florida Here I Come

Aug. 1st, 2006 | 11:13 am

Work is sending me to a conference in Orlando Florida from Sunday, Aug 6th, 2006 through Wednesday, August 9th for Apco Conference whatever that is.

Such short notice; makes me a bit apprehensive.  Plus I'm guessing its un-fucking-believably hot.

Anyone got any recommendations of things to see/do there?  It'll all be after hours I assume.  I'm not even sure I'll have a car free to use, since I'm traveling with a sales guy.
