The past couple of days have been filled with home entertaining goodness, as my boss finally remembered to pick-up the first half of my entertainment center over in Traverse City. Finally migrating everything over at about one in the morning, though, I realized just how shabby the original wiring with this system was when I first hooked it up. Adding a game here or a component there, I’ve now got a literal spiderweb of cables, but fortunately I’m still over another hundred dollars away from dealing with that mess! My only gripe with my new stand is that currently the center channel to my stereo system is behind a pair of glass doors, but at least I don’t have to worry about waking up to find my TV in a pile on the floor after the stand collapsed after years and years of abuse…

I also took the opportunity to pick-up a new universal remote control while I was throwing money away, although I’ve never had too much luck with these things in the past. Hopefully this one will be a little better than the last, as it apparently has a new feature that allows it to learn old commands from my other remotes so I can actually put them away instead of keeping them handy for the one or two commands that didn’t carry over. Hell, for what I paid for the thing, it should get up by itself, walk over to the TV and push the buttons by hand when it can’t figure out what I want it to do! Ahh, the joys of being lazy…
