TiVo Dude!

Wah! I want my new toy!

Back on December 12th I ordered a Pioneer TiVo 810H from PlasmaKings.com. At the time they were listed as in stock. So the following week the call to tell me they ran out before shipping my order, but they'd have 100 more in just after xmas and my order would ship by the end of the year. Well, by last week it was still listed as backordered, but with the holiday there wasn't a lot I could do.

Well, it was still listed as backordered today and I called and they didn't know when they'd ship. Originally I wanted to have it by today because I fly out to CES on Wednesday and I wanted to set it up to record while I'm gone. Well, I canceled the order today and placed a new order with Abe's of Maine since they have them in stock, and it will only cost me about $11 more to buy from them. Hopefully it will arrive while I'm away. (I'm having it sent to work.)

Thank you gizmoek and aeire!

gizmoek ordered one of the prints aeire has been selling recently and surprised me with it last night. Which is really cool because I really wanted the prints - but one of them went on sale and sold out during a few day stretch when I was really busy and not reading LJ. And then I decided to be 'responsible' and not spend the money on more prints since I'd picked up others. Which was a hard choice to make since I like aeire's work so much. But I got one anyway, and aeire even signed it 'Cheer up Zoner!' Heh.

So thanks!

Wheel! Of! Fortune!

I am The Wheel of Fortune

The Wheel of Fortune represents unexpected encounters and twists of fate. You can't predict surprises; you can only be aware when one is circling around. Indeed, Card 10 often suggests wheel-like actions - changes in direction, repeating cycles and rapid movement. When the energy of the Wheel arrives, you will feel life speed up. You are caught in a cyclone that may deposit you anywhere. "Round and round and round she goes, and where she stops, nobody knows."

Anyone else going to CES?

I'm flying out to Vegas on Wednesday and I'll be there until next Monday, going to CES! 4 days of completely geeking out over new gadgets. And, of course, I'll be hitting the TiVo booth to see what they have up their sleeve. :-) Anyone else going?
