Movin', movin', movin'...

Yes, I know, it's been awhile since I've updated the blog, but I've got a good excuse...the wife and I just moved to new digs, a slightly larger (and nicer) apartment in Carroll Gardens. We've got a great new kitchen, a dishwasher, a washer/dryer, and (hallelujah) a home office.

That's the good news. The bad news? My home theater/gaming setup is looking pretty sad right now. The 46-inch Sony Bravia is propped up on a couple of end tables, and while I've got the DVR, PS3, and Xbox 360 hooked up to the TV, the Onkyo receiver and speakers are still sitting in a closet...and yes, that means all the sound is currently being piped through the Sony's built-in speakers. I've got the fake surround sound enabled, but...c'mon, that's no match for a true 5.1 speaker system, right?

What's the holdup, you ask? Well, we need to find the right media stand for our new living room (it has to be just the right width/height), and we'll also need a rug to hide the wires for the rear speakers. Both items have to be...just so, I'm told. And that means I'll have to be patient. As in 3-4 weeks patient.

Still...I've got this great home office now, with a desk, so no need to break down all my equipment every night. And that means more productivity, more writing, and more blogging goodness.

That's the plan, anyway. Wish me luck.
