Wow, Has it Really Been Three Months?
Needless to say (or is it?) not very much crafting has gone on. I have however discovered the following:
1. I am not dying. (Yay!)
2. I live in a pit.
Re: #2, I don't have cable TV, the companies around grossly overcharge for their programming, and I can't get a satellite dish. So I have an antenna. On a good day I might get 4 channels, sort of. Well, because of the whole "moving to digital" thing I had to buy a converter box (my TV is that old). Thing is, digital signals are weaker than analog. The local stations come from San Francisco, San Jose, and Sacramento. There are big hills basically all around. The only stations I pick up with the digital box are two spanish language channels that broadcast from about 5 miles away (there is a large hispanic community nearby). I even tried building my own antenna (which actually seems to work better than the one that came with the TV believe it or not).
