Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer

A Few Furlongs Short Of A Hogshead

So, I brought my TiVo over to the new apartment tonight. I removed all of the cables and put them in a bag and then drove over.

It took me a while before I realized I'd forgotten one part… the remote.

I thought that I had a solution because we do have a TiVo/DVD-Player at the new apartment already and you can use normal TiVo remotes with multiple different TiVos so I thought I'd just change the code on the remote and I'd be saved. No such luck. Apparently the TiVo/DVD remotes are completely different from the normal TiVo remotes so I'm headed back to the old apartment.

Every year at Christmas time my father and brother spend a little time in the sauna and then take a quick dip in the creek. I've considered joining them but haven't done it yet (I get enough cold living in Minnesota). I also had the "the airline lost my luggage with my swimsuit" excuse.

This year my cousin Jonathan joined them for their annual dip.

Spent much of the evening wrestling with the TiVos and the wireless network. The bridge that finally started working once I bought a new router has been somewhat flaky tonight. Combine that with the TiVos stubborn refusal to acknowledge each other's presence and it adds up to lots of wanting to throw expensive gadgets out the window. Hopefully they'll play nice tonight as we copy three episodes of Survivor and seven of CSI from the old one (which has been getting noisier and noisier lately) onto the new quiet one.

I made a little progress at the old apartment tonight, I got some stuff slightly better organized and I have a couple things that can go to storage for now. I need to get around to getting an oil change soon too. Busy times.
