Once we finish moving in... it's a bit of a mess though not as bad as it could be.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I needed a composite cable with 3.5 mm jacks at both ends.

I know: who needs a composite cable these days?

But I really needed it to plug my media-player into a wireless transmission-device (instead of drilling holes in the floor and pulling a cable from the living room into the cellar (and sometimes further: into the yard)), you see both devices only have that small hole and both devices came with 3.5 mm jack to RCA-connector-cables.

The guy in the store couldn't even tell me if the cable I needed even existed! -Instead he sold me a couple of these:



Full Description:
The Bandridge BAP120 has nickel plated contacts which ensure perfect sound reproduction the easy grip moulded adapter guarantee firm connection and perfect audio signals.

Features:

Colour : Black.
Nickel Plated contacts ensure perfect sound reproduction.
Easy grip moulded adapter guarantee firm connection and perfect audio signals.

Technical Specifications:

Connector 1 : RCA Female.
Connector 2 : RCA Female.

I saved a bit though - the tv, I'm connecting this way, is only mono so I only needed two couplers

My newest purchase is a part for the shower to stop it from leaking.

My new place just new that I was going to own it and decided to wait until the day after I signed the title and deed before breaking.

Bought some farecards online for my upcoming trips: CharmCard for Baltimore (April) and SmarTrip for DC (September).

I just bought that TNG Blu-ray thing for myself off of Amazon last night. Screw flowers, that's my Valentine present to myself!

Way to go

I would rather make these things myself than buying them. That said, I did find the site of another trekkie on-line (it's amazing what you can find on-line!) who'd already pulled numerous soundbites from Trek and had them there free to download...

The only part of the sound environment on my pad that wasn't trek, the incoming text-message-sound, was changed to the TNG door chime this week!

Since my pad is a Nokia I find it only natural to use the so-called 'futurized' version of the Nokia-tune as my ringtone

The last time I had a tone like that, it went off in public and I got laughed at. We'll see if things are any different this time around.
