This day just flew by me before I really realized what had happened. Ended up being out a little late on Friday after all the baseball excitement, so I got a late start. Lots to be done around the house, and I also watched a movie that Brian lent to me. Eagle Eye was OK, but it could have been quite a bit better. Another interesting take on a Skynet-type problem that wouldn’t actually ever happen. But like I said, it wasn’t awful.
Did some laundry while I was watching this evening’s Brewers game. MediaPortal is totally worth the trouble on my TV box if for no other reason than the DVR features– being able to pause the live game while I was running up and down the stairs changing loads was nice. If there were:
- a browser extension, in order to use hulu and netflix within MP, and
- a decent music library included
… it would pretty much rock. I might try Boxee for Windows to see how that works out. The thing I would like best is to do all the video watching that I need to on computer, WITH the remote. Having to plug in a keyboard or mouse is a pain. Ah well, minor thing.
I would like to sneak in my blog-o-riffic birthday salutations to my mom, right under the wire here ON her birthday, 4/11. Love you, Mom– hope it was a good day…
If I miss all of ya on Sunday, have a happy Easter.
