So, I'm getting cable finally. It's been nearly a year since my wife and I moved out of her parents' house, and we've not had the little life-sucking box since then. But months of Netflix, rentals from Family Video, and lots of TV via the Internet... we realized we'd save patience and hassles in the long run if we just got the damn cable TV.
The plus? I'll be able to record and save episodes of Family Guy, American Dad, Heroes, Futurama, etc. and so on. I'll also have the cable guy change where my router and modem are so that I can connect to Xbox Live. WIN!
The negative? I'll not be able to play my Xbox for a solid week or two for any lenght of time more than 30 minutes as the wife will undoubtedly want to catch up on EVERY show known to man. She'll be a zombie for a while, I think. But I guess I'll be able to see what's going on in an MMO of my choosing while she does that then... maybe log myself into my father in law's LotRO account and check out how that game's doing since it won't cost me a nickel.
Anyway, just want to share that as it's a *sniff* big deal for me *tear*.
