Back on the Grid. Sort of.

Last June, I cut the cable, pissed off the wife and started to enjoy my summer.
What led me to that decision? Well, I was fed up with my cable service and box failing, Hockey season was over, and I wanted to spend more time out and about and less time on the couch. That all changed last night...
It was a combination of things, I like to fix things, and I was totally perplexed that the massive antenna on my roof wasn’t picking up signals. I later did some research and realized that broadcasted stations are now 2-1, 5-2, 5-4 etc. So once I did an auto tuning search, I picked up 118 channels. There is some bizarre stuff being broadcasted these days. I felt like I was in Europe. However, the highlight, is that channels are being broadcasted in HD, so for example Gossip Girl comes in 1080p. Solid picture. Seeing that we have been watching DVD’s off my PS2 (480p), Tanya was pretty hyped about the quality of the picture.
End of summer bummer
Fall is here
My neighbor is getting rid of his mini ramp
My TV works, so now my wife can totally tune me out
I guess I better start working on my squats so I’m ready for shredding.
