And Now For Something Completely Different

Warning :: Do NOT listen to Ca Plane Pour Moi by Plastic Bertrand while reading this.

My last post, I realize, was a bit on the harsh side of things. Then I realized, alot of my latest posts have been me wingein' about this or that. While I stand by everything written here - and will continue to randomly vent on issues that sour my milk - I don't want this space to become nothing more than my soapbox to air ills...

So I figured I'd start off here with a few 'uplifting' topics of interest. Nothing so exciting in regards to the general public, I'll admit. But at least I'm not bitchin' and moanin' about something. Be thankful for that. F'Christ, I am.

First up - and I have no idea how many items I'll touch on - is the topic of what was supposed to be the focus of the previous post... My new laptop. It arrived on Monday afternoon and I haven't gotten it entirely broken in but so far - it's been awesome...

Re-entering passwords, accepting Liscence Agreements, and dealing with the imbedded product onslaught is, admittedly, a bit of a pain.

(yeah... bit of a winge there)

Being able to write this post, have a window open showing the live scoring of my Fantasy Hockey game, and watch the Atlanta @ Vancouver game (via the Hockey Night in Canada broadcast, no less) all at the same time? Well, it's well worth the minor hassles. I can say that with certainty.

Aside from the added hassle of having to listen to and watch Kelly Hrudey during intermission... not... a big fan.

These laptops, though, are phenomenal... That's what I'm saying. Gotta figure out how to get the audio output into my stereo receiver next. But - top marks all around for the laptop and the wireless era in general. Sweet stuff...


The wicker basket of globules and baubels of positivity sits here at my ankles. Time is no accomplice in getting each recognized, however. In haste, a few notes I will publish. All the while, ditch this odd sentence structure and ridiculous vocabulary.

My Napster is friggin' awesome! I wish sometimes, everyone could be hearing the songs that I'm hearing. It'd be ridiculous.

And then add the songs other people tell me about. And listen to those ones, too.

I'd be happy. 'Cuz it'd be a bunch of the songs I dig... and a few pretty good tunes that people suggest... but I think people would (should) like them. If they don't, that's okay... but Opera won't live forever.

All I know is I've got a pretty decent resource here.

I wish I had an evil twin.

Unwarning :: You may now listen to Ca Plane Pour Moi by Plastic Bertrand at your leisure.

you should have an 1/8" audio out jack on the right side of your laptop; there'll be a little picture of a set of headphones next to the jack.

all you need is a stereo 1/8" to RCA adaptor -- plug the adaptor in, and you can use a regular set of RCA cables to go into your receiver....

thanks, you knob. i found that sweet 6' cord with the 1/8" plug on one end and two RCA plugs on the other. $7.99 at the Shack. You should snag one...
