Well I haven’t posted in over a month. This is just a super quick summary.
I did get a set-top antenna for my TV and can get all of the local broadcast HD channels (except channel 2/CBS, I can’t even pull in the SD broadcast).
My TV decided to go south a couple of weeks ago. I was watching it and the picture and sound went out. I tried to turn it back on and the unit would just click. The tube never fired up. I called Samsung and a local repair guy came to the house with a new logic board 3 days later (on a Sunday afternoon!). I found it to be intermittent. I tried unlugging it and plugging it back in and got pic/sound for less then 15 seconds. It started doing its thing. Well the guy came out Sunday afternoon with a new logic board. Replacing that didn’t fix it so he said it was the tube. He took it with him and I got it back that following Saturday (6 days). Working good so far.
I’m also checking out new webhosting. My current provider is awesome, but kind of expensive for what I get for the money. But they have incredible uptime and ultra quick service turnaround. I signed up with Bluehost (7.95/mo) and Dreamhost (80% off first month, and full second year. 104$ for 2 years, then its 7.95/mo). I have 30 days to cancel Bluehost and 97 days to cancel Dreamhost. I need to get this done and decided on before 11/1. That’s when my current host rebills, and Bluehost’s full return ends 11/4.
That’s about all of the big stuff for now.
