I ordered a Leaf HD Antenna today. The Leaf website says I should be able to get 14 channels.

If this works out, a Roku is next.

OK, i'm almost ready to cut the cord from Time Warner.  There are some shows i'll have to pay for i guess....ie: Walking Dead and others on AMC or A&E.  I do watch alot of Food Network, Crime Network, FX.  But i could do without them.

What i'm considering doing is Roku and Leaf HD Antenna.  I like the looks of the Roku 3.

I have subscriptions through Amazon Prime, NHL Network, and MLB.TV.  The only thing i'm concerned about is NFL and College Football in the Fall.  I can get most of that from the HD Antenna.  I can hit up my favorite sports pub down the street for ESPN specific games.   

Now if i can find another way to do internet cheaper, i'd be thrilled.  Living on Maui though leaves my options limited.  Anyone doing the setup of Roku and OTA Antenna and can give it the thumbs up?  I'd like the $140 Time Warner bill to disappear or atleast shrink to just internet service.

Ya I was thinking you would.

See if they can give you a Dilaudid PCA.... pump you control yourself to deliver pain medicine. Honestly, that might really help get you through the first 24-48 hours or so.

Feel free to ask me any questions or concerns you may run into. Taken care of alot of people who have been through this.

Best wishes, you'll do good I'm sure.

Ya Dilaudid is what they gave you every two hours afterwards. 1mg of that is equal to around 7mg of morphine I believe smile

What they need to do for surgery?

As a RN, nothing gets much more brutal than watching a chest tube getting inserted. Thought I would faint the first time I had to help a MD insert one.

Guessing they gave you Fentanyl for pain first and then Versed next for the dreamland state you were in. Good shit.

I remember walking into a patient room once with them holding the entire tube in their hand and asking "should this be connected to something?"

Glad it worked out OK. Pretty painful shit.

Anyone know how long after a game has finished it is available to watch on Gamecenter?

I was hoping to watch the Avs replay last night when I got home and it wasn't available to view. For that matter, no game except the Senators was available.

Anyone know?

In case anyone needs to know for reference, The Kings and Ducks are blacked out in Maui.

Excited to see what the young Avs can do.

I got a couple Armstrong books from the library a few years back. My wife completed one and encouraged me to read the other.

I got through about three chapters and couldn't take anymore. The most self absorbed piece of crap put in print.

When rumors later started circulating about doping,I was totally convinced. Not surprised in the least with this.

Both games could be intriguing. Being a Broncos fan I'm naturally nervous. I have little worries about them actually losing. But these games played in extreme weather conditions bother me.

I would be surprised if the Ravens lose this weekend. I liked their chances before the Lewis retirement announcement.

Now I would almost bet they win. If they control the ball with their run game, I can see their defense giving Luck problems. Colts can't stop the run.

Awesome set of headphones for anyone in the market. Normal price is $299.

I've been eyeing these as I really want a quality set of headphones, but just couldn't pull the trigger on $300.

Most reputable sources put these well about Beats by Dr Dre.

I suspect this will sell out, get 'em while you can!

Owning a pet is just cruel irony a lot of times. Their life spans are so short and it's awful having to say goodbye so soon when they have given so much joy and love. Very few things I hate more than hearing someone who loses a pet. Brings the toughest of us to our knees.

Really sorry for the inevitable loss....from one pet lover to another.

I've posted over at OO about this and I'll post here too.

It looks like I unfortunately may know a victim.

We just recently moved to Hawaii from Denver 2 months ago. I'm a RN who worked at The University of Colorado and Aurora Medical Center. I'm positive I would have been called in to help triage victims had I still been living there. I drove by that theatre daily on my way into work.

Today has been very difficult as I sit in the middle of the ocean wishing I were back in Denver to be with friends and coworkers and helping to care for the victims.  Never have I felt totally helpless. I just wish I could use my trained skills to help care for my former community and home.

I'm not a religious person myself, so I'll only ask to remember in whatever way you choose not only the victims, but survivors and those caring for them.

I'm definitely on the IN side of this. I was about to order the Kindle Fire this week for my birthday, but saw this last night and read some very positive reviews. I also see rumors of a Kindle Fire 2 to be released as early as late July, early August.

I'm going to sit tight right now, but I'm a huge Android and google fan. This baby looks great and I'm seriously contemplating a preorder.

79  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Best way for newbie guitar player to progress? on: June 22, 2012, 10:53:15 PM
My 9 year old son has been learning guitar now for about 5 months. I initially found some youtube videos where he learned basic cords. We then bought Rocksmith and he plays that regularly and he is damn good at it.

The problem is we have come to a point where we don't know how to progress as he is bored with Rocksmith and just strumming basic cords over and over.

So for those out there, what are some suggestions on how to progress? I was thinking of looking into buying a cord book with some songs he would like to learn. But is that too much? Not sure where to go from here.
