August 3, 2009: Nothing Much

Back to work – or whatever that means for those of us who work weekends.  I worked until late last night and slept in a little this morning.  I was pretty tired.

Nothing much to report today.  A very slow day in terms of “Miller news.”

The rain stopped last night and it is hot and sunny again today.  I worked all day in the basement.  This afternoon Dominica and Liesl went out shopping.  They had some returns to do and were looking at Bed, Bath and Beyond for blinds or curtains.  We are putting in curtains upstairs as well as in the living room and in the kitchen.  We are hoping that by adding the curtains, especially to the living room, that it will insulate the house a bit more and help to keep it cool.  Being unable to block the sunlight which pours in through the south windows is killing us.  It gets just unbearably hot in there and the air conditioning can’t begin to do anything about it.

Today was mostly a scouting trip for window treatments.   Dominica got some curtains for the kitchen but they ended up not being what we really wanted so they are going back tomorrow for something else.

After work was over we worked on getting videos to work better on the PS3.  We figured out that the videos can be manually copied over from the DLNA server so that we don’t have to put up with WiFi bandwidth issues. In doing so we have discovered that some of our transferred videos still fail to play on the PS3.  It makes me wonder how many of our video issues with NetFlix are caused by the PS3 and not by PlayOn.

This evening we watched the original Cannonball Run – quite the classic.  Horribly cheesy but I still really enjoy it.  It is a classic.

That’s all for today.
