We have Wii! [Nov. 13th, 2008|06:00 pm]
Verminius Rex
When the Wii went off to be repaired, we acquired the PS3 and Marz moved the Apple TV from the iMac to the living room TV. Thus those wires that plug into the tv we all ignore until we must deal with them became an issue, because the Apple TV went where the Wii was, the PS3 went into the HDMI slot, and we didn't have a composite cable for the Wii (in theory one came with the Wii, but have no clue where it is).

The choices were a $30 cable from Best Buy that had composite and s-video (and the tv doesn't have s-video), or a visit to Gamestop to see what they had. At Gamestop the guy looked through and showed me a multi-platform cable that would work on many game systems and connect in many ways, about $15. Then he remembered someone had just traded in the cable we wanted this morning, so home I went with a Wii composite cable. Now it's hooked back into the TV, none of the information was lost, and Pari is playing Lego Batman.

I'm hoping that everyone goes HDMI, one cable, no problem.

Three days until Animal Crossing comes out.

And about 2.5 hours before parent/teacher conference with Pari's teacher.

This is extremely random, but I kinda sorta know you through a bunch of 6-degree-separation mutual friends, though I am almost certain you'll not remember me. I lived in the Sunflower House from 1996-1998, and again from 2002-Feb 04. I kinda sorta know your wife in the same way. Anyway, heh, small world. Now I've got a 10-month-old munchkin myself. Mind if I friend you? Old ex-SFH townie hippie weirdos unite, and all that? ;)

I noticed that there was a new friending and was wondering about the connection. Welcome, hope you like to hear about kids, sewing and baking.
