For those few movies I've seen on Blu-Ray that do fill up a 16:9 display, they look amazing... no questioning the incredible picture quality and detail you get over DVD. A quality that's much less apparent when everything is shorter and surrounded by emptiness.
Just a rant. DVD's don't seem to help get me to the movie I want to watch any quicker than VHS... especially with a fussy 2 year old who want's to watch Elmo *now*
I got Verizon's new FiOS fiber optic installed, replacing my Comcast cable ISP, last week. It's fast and consistent, I'm amazed and pleased.
In an attempt to get myself organized in all areas of my life, I picked myself up a new Palm PDA. Great unit, really happy with it.
I just picked up a new Dell Dimension 4700 with 17 inch LCD. It's stark black and sitting right next to my white G4 PowerMac... Ying and Yang. It's a P4 2.8ghz with Hyper Threading. I don't want to mention the ram or video ram as I'll be upgrading those as soon as possible, although for what I'm using it for so far, it purrs along just fine.
Never had more unorganized service in my life. You'd think that making an order for a service as basic as DSL, in a DSL equipped house and area, would be a simple thing to make happen... not so, for Verizon.
