First the good. Today I finally got around to hooking up the 5.1 surround on my computer. I fished the cables up into the attic, mounted the speakers in the corners, added extensions to the cables and fished them back down the other wall and into the computer. Let me just say right now Doom3 sounds COMPLETELY AWESOME in surround. I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before the neighbors call the cops.

The Bad, we had to cancel my poker game that I had planned for tonight. We were short on ppl anyway, there were going to be between 6 – 8 players. We had a few drop out at the last minute so we just canceled it until next time.

The Ugly, we used to have this really nice ride between Anna, to Celina, to Pilot point. It was about 30 miles of nearly perfect roads with tons of twist and turns. It was a motorcyclist dream. Well they have decided to repave it. Now that means something different to txdot. I didn’t think it needed repaving anyway, but to them repaving mean to put down oil and rock. This means it completely ruins it for bikes cuz gravel is a big problem. This also sucks for auto traffic as well. It may smooth it out a bit for about a week. But it only takes one day with temps over 90 to bring all the oil to the top. Now you are splattering this crap all over your car or truck. Not to mention the rocks are sticking to your tires and throwing them everywhere. Now after a month of wear the road is now worse than it was before they decided to “fix” it. I don’t know what they were thinking. Whoever decided that this was a good idea has evidently never driven on one of these roads. They did the same thing to CR78 here just a half a mile from my house. A matter of fact they have done it three times since I’ve been here, last year and a half, and each time it only gets worse and worse. Idiots……
