A Leap in Speed

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

I just switched over to Time Warner 300/20.  It costs less than AT&T was charging me for 45.           I’m hoping this will last me at least until Google fiber comes in.

New TV

Monday, May 30th, 2011

I’ve had my Mitsubishi 55″ Rear Projection TV since shortly after we moved in here. That was in 1999. It’s been a good TV but for the last year or so it’s been losing it’s red every so often. It’s also only 1080i and 720p so it can’t really do justice to the new HD. […]
