  1. Happy Birthday Ian!

    Thanks everyone. I had a great 40th yesterday, and Penelope turned 3 today. So it was a fun couple of days.
  2. And now what did you do TODAY?

    In order to take the weight of the plasma, we mounted a sheet of plywood behind the ship lap screwed to the studs. Before we did that, we punched a few holes in the wall to find the studs, drilled some holes for the wires and fished everything through. The stereo is in the base of the built-in on the other side of the wall, in the dining room, which works out well since I can access everything fun the back. All the wiring terminates there, and it looks like a repurposed wood box. I have to say, it's great having everything tucked away and hidden.
  3. And now what did you do TODAY?

    Finally wrapped up the faux fireplace and in-wall speaker install. Catastrophic failure of a section of the lathe and plaster when cutting the hole for the right speaker left me needing a patch. Finally got it taped and mudded last weekend, and picked up some paint tonight and was able to get it painted and install the speaker grilles. A reminder of where I started... In progress... For the last 3 months. And all but complete!
  4. Post what you're watching

    Thoroughly enjoyed Daredevil and Jessica Jones. Started watching Catastrophe on Amazon the other night and we ended up watching all 6 episodes of Season 1. Hilarious. Kind of like You're the Worst, but they're not quite that bad. At times Lauren & I were worried we were going to wake Penelope up we were laughing so hard.
  5. And now what did you do TODAY?

    A belated post... We picked Winnie up Saturday. She's settling in well... She's going to be a great addition to the family. The North Face coat my mom made for Neko just needs a minor adjustment as she's a little smaller than Neko was.
  6. And now what did you do TODAY?

    Thanks everyone. We actually got a bit of good news today... They were actually able to spay the pup today, and she's doing well, so we'll be able to pick her up Saturday!
  7. And now what did you do TODAY?

    Well, got some bad news... The dog is fine, but she appears to have lost the puppy. Things were looking good this time last week, but mid-week she seemed to transition back to pre-pregnancy condition. We were really looking forward to having the two new additions, but if we're honest, this will be much more manageable, and we'll get to bring her home as soon as they can spay her. We'll probably get to pick her up the first weekend in December. Disappointing, but we were told this was a real possibility, do not entirely unexpected, either.
  8. Post what you're watching

    Finally started watching Daredevil... Great pilot. Looking forward to the rest of the season and then Jessica Jones now that I'm caught up with The Walking Dead.
  9. What are you listening to Part the Third

    So happy I saw this... Downloading now!!!
  10. Post what you're watching

    Mr. Robot was another that was made possible through the good will of an Xfinity login on the USA app on the AppleTV!
  11. Post what you're watching

    It really is great. I'm fortunate enough to have a family member's Xfinity sign-in information for the FX app on the AppleTV so Season 2 is available there. We also started watching Mr. Robot. I really enjoyed the pilot. One of my favorite TV writers has raved about The Americans, You're the Worst and Mr. Robot, and while I'm late to the table on the last two, he's definitely 3 for 3.
  12. Post what you're watching

    You're the Worst. It's the best. Wildly inappropriate. Great cast. Such a fun to binge on... Catching up on Season 1 on Hulu.

  14. A real response? AppleTV. I use one at work where I can't connect to a Wi-Fi network. The beauty of the AppleTV is that it uses Bluetooth to proximity-locate the iPhone and then does a kind of local Wi-Fi connection between the two to allow for lossless AirPlay streaming. You would then connect the optical out of the AppleTV to the optical input. I picked up a refurb for $50, have it connected via the optical out to my DAC and then to my Quad 9L Active speakers. Lossless digital connection and wireless, too. Just in case someone is looking down the road.
