New technology takes some time to absorb. This setup has optical links, which I’ve never used before, and the cables I have don’t work with the receptacles situated on the DVD player, TV and audio receiver. So, back to Ultimate Electronics. Then, since I’m using an HDMI connector with the cable HD service the box Comcast has with the HDMI cable is the DVR which costs more. Of course. And so on into acronym chaos.
As luck would have it, however, the Woollies meet in Minnetonka tonight at the Istanbul Bistro. The route to there from here takes me both both Comcast and Ultimate so I should have all the supplies necessary to put this puppy to bed by tomorrow. The speaker connections are all in place, the subwoofer is ready to woof and I’m ready to hear the damn raindrops.
No joy on the Asia tour as a result though I do have a plan: faith traditions of Asia. I’ll hit the Ghandara Buddha, the Mandala (tour requested), Poet Contemplating the Waterfall, Confucius, Kuan Yin, Pocket Buddha, Jizo and the Divine Rainmaking Boy.
The Gunflint story progresses nicely. Sort of HP Lovecraft meets Sigurd Olson.
Kate’s off today. Nice having her around. She’s finishing up the second curtain for the living room, a red brocade with a pale gold dragon fly motif.
