A Long December

“A long December and there’s reason to believe that this year will be better than the last.”

– got a new boss
started using an iPod Touch
– set up a home media server with one terabyte of storage
– switched to DSL and satellite TV, dumping Comcast
– bought two televisions, one LCD and one plasma (I had never paid for a television before 2008)
– watched all episodes to date of LOST, Battlestar Galactica, and Dexter (currently working on Heroes)
– bought some new music (I heart Weezer)
