By popular demand

The black and white photos are up (one is still a demand).

Came close to buying a DVD-recorder today (something to reward myself with after finally killing the bug I’d been working on all day at 7:30). I decided the only one that meets all of my needs is the Toshiba RD-XS52 (in geekspeak, currently the only DVD recorder with both HDMI output and FireWire input), but even at the lowest price of $460, couldn’t justify buying it this month (not looking forward to the credit card bills as it is). So I went over to Best Buy, drooled on their TVs and DVD recorders, and bought an HD antenna for tomorrow (I’m not even messing with a new satellite system until January at the earliest, and I think I’ll need it anyway, as I know Dish Network doesn’t carry this many channels).
