I'm told that the new President wants everyone to have broadband access to the Internet. Is this really a good idea?

I've gotten rid of my Epson C80 color printer. It works fine, but I can't be bothered screwing with it anymore. Every time I try to use it, one or more of the cartridges has dried out, or the heads need to be cleaned, using massive amounts of ink, and I end up having to buy cartridges for the thing and muck around with it before I can complete the current project.

Before we start, I should say that I've got CFLs installed everywhere in the house except the socket that's on a dimmer, and the antique fixture where a CFL won't fit. But I don't have any illusions about them.

ThoughtsContinuing the thread of bad customer support, I just had a really bad several days with Sony technical support trying to get my $2,400 television fixed. I'm documenting this in google groups, and also reproducing the thread here.

ThoughtsTraffic was a nightmare, but so was Starbucks this morning.

When I went in, there was only one painfully metrosexual guy in front of me -- all in black, expensive trench coat, bluetooth in ear, strange haircut. Still, it's only one person, I ought to be able to get out quickly. So he's nattering on and on and on, and in my non-caffenated state I'm not really paying a lot of attention, but it eventually dawns on me that the line isn't moving.

ThoughtsUpdate: As of mid-February, HD-DVD is dead, leaving us with one HD format. (Yay.) But as the question -- whether you need high definition DVD at all -- is still valid.
