Shit. I was so tired ysterday that I forgot to post this. It was still on my machine when I came home today. Looks like I forgot to switch over the utilities, too.

Ow. Ow. OW! All boxes must die in a fire. My shoulderblades are killing me, my lumbar back is all jacked, my feet hurt worse than usual (which is pretty damn hard to do, my feet are _screwed up_ from Judo), and my calves are still burning. On the upside, there's really not that much in terms of small stuff to move to the new apartment. Dishes/cookware, current clothes, the rest of the electronics that are coming with us (etcet, your equipment will be ready to ship in about 10 days), furniture that's coming with us (goddamnit, buy my bed/dresser/entertainment center/couch!) and miscellany will all be going on the truck once we get back from Grendel in Chicago. Current apartment looks eerily empty, took all the figures, cels, posters, and books already. The new place's storage room rules, it all fit in there with easy access to everything and room to walk around. Got to build massive amounts of shelving (5x5' in the geek room for figures, 1x[whatever distance between the studs] for the center channel speaker) over my vacation, as well as cable up all the new gear. I'm going to get my badass XLO speaker cables professionally reterminated, can't use biwired minipins on my new Dynaudios. The center and rears are going to get hooked up with a 50' spool of Acoustic Research 12 gague run along the wall borders and stapled down. Need a PS2 component cable, a single decent analog RCA for the center channel, and two TOSLinks for the PS2 and digital cable box. Sucks, but I have to hook up the DVD player via SPDIF, but I only have two digital ins on my amp and I'm already going to be confusing it by hooking the DVD and PS2 up to the same input. Still have to go to the DTE office tomorrow to schedule the power/gas switchover and call Comcast/SBC to transfer the landline. It's still cheaper, I have a work cel, and I generally don't want to do any non-emergency talking while not at home or work. Still planning on the bluetooth smartphone/unlimited 3G net access plan once the prices come down.

Planning on it, yeah. Oh, any way I could con you in to buying my couch? $50 and it's yours.

probably not. I just got two recliners from my parents and my old couch is going downstairs to add to the other 3 couches I already have. But I can certainly ask around.

I'm not entirely up to speed here, but doesn't the PS2 double as a DVD system? Couldn't you just bypass the other DVD player?

That's what I'm doing now, but the new DVD player has a lot better (upscaled to 720P) picture and a lot more features.
