So as you all now know, the Pimpson's have their new pc at home. And still pretty happy with it. And as of today, we have internet at home! Good times indeed.
I hooked up the old wireless router that Ferda and her sister used to share, and got online with the DS. To be honest, I haven't used that for a while. But now that I can access the Nintendo WFC, I think I'll be going on a lot more. Perhaps Jmo and I (and perhaps Artoo?) will have to have a MarioKart competition of some kind. Or StarFox Command, I'm easy as to which game. However, I bet I'll get my butt handed to me in StarFox. Whichever, let me know when you are game. And that goes for anyone else out there who would like to challenge me (or Jmo or Artoo) on some DS games. Post your friend codes in the comments.
So back to the computer - finally got the correct cable to connect the tv with the video card of the pc. The original s-video cable I got didn't work - it was stupid really, the plug at the end was too large and it wouldn't connect to the video card completely, it was like you couldn't push it all the way in. I took it back to walmart and got my $$ back and got a different one from radio shack/source by circuit city. Works perfect! Now the media center plays directly to the tv, like I said before, all media goodies like tv, dvds, movies, mp3, photos, etc.
Plans for the rest of the weekend include dinner with Alex and Holly tonight, (I have my fingers crossed for some more holly-isms). Tomorrow, trip to costco, and some quality maxin' and relaxin'.
