Iron died several days ago, and has been replaced with this:



Quite sexy as far as irons go, makes me want to get some starch and get to work... well, almost.

Chose this one as it has a 3 metre cord. Should now allow me some choice as to where I'd like to do the ironing, without having to pull out an extension. These damn old houses don't have enough electric outlets.

My husband once ironed a shirt that he was wearing at the time.

A new light for the bathroom ceiling, chrome and glass, simple and minimal and a bit futuristic.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

A 2TB external hard drive for my set-top media player (for less than $100!). I find this is my preferred method of watching old TV series now- rip the individual episodes to files, instead of trying to figure out which DVD it's on (or remember where I left off on the DVDs).

The GoFlexTV media box I'm using now is pretty cool. It was also less than $100, and plays H264 MKV files which are tiny but pretty good quality, and will also play .ISO rips of actual DVDs.

I had tried using my PS3 as a media server before but could never get satisfactory results, this little GoFlex box is much better in my opinion.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

The nutty prints I mentioned upthread arrived today. Super secure packaging, fast shipping and the paintings themselves are good quality; very good seller if anyone else was thinking of buying.

So I went to the framing shop to get them framed. Their size is awkward enough that I opted to get the frames bespoke rather than squeeze them into standard frames that don't really suit in terms of size/colour. Neither the (non sci-fi fan) sales assistant nor I could stop giggling at the calculated lunacy of the subject matter. I got exactly the reaction from her that I hope to get from visitors when they first see them; a glance, then a double-take, followed by good-humoured laughter and WTF questions.

Clothes iron...'Digital'...Does not compute.

What the hell does that thing do, anyway? In addition to getting the creases out of your clothes, does it do your taxes and fly the space shuttle as well? That is one seriously tricked-out beast.
