11:30 am - Born in the Garden State  
I did the cutting in for the first coat of paint last night. The problem now is that the manufacturer recommends waiting four hours between coats, so I can really only do one coat per evening. This is gonna take forever.

Rather than sitting there watching the paint dry, I went down to the basement and started some seedlings (cantaloupes, parsley, basil, and six varieties of tomatoes). I have this little space-age mini-greenhouse that my mother gave me for Christmas a year or two ago. Very easy to use, no muss, no fuss. Now it's sitting on top of the furnace, where I imagine the seeds are just germinating their little endosperms out.

It's another sunny day out, albeit a bit on the cold side. I need to go shopping for a new lawn mower, and perhaps a small tiller/cultivator of some sort. I also need to get a shed of some kind to store all this stuff in.
Current Mood: overly energetic

DXM, been meaning to ask you, have you ever had one of those Extra Innings-type packages on your cable tv (the one that gives you access to tons of other game broadcasts on certain channels, there's one for football called Sunday Ticket and one for hockey called Centre Ice), and if so, now that you have MLB.tv, which would you recommend?

I've never done one of the cable packages. I didn't even do NESN until the Sox shoved it down Cox's throat. I did get the MLB Gameday Audio package, so I can listen to the radio broadcast on pretty much any game I want on my computer, and since they archive the games, I can listen to late Dodger games the next morning. It's certainly worth the $15. The only downside I've noticed is that there's about a minute delay from real time, so it's impossible to sync the sound with a TV picture (if available), and it's even a couple of pitches behind the Gameday service, so following along with that runs the risk of momentary spoilers.

There's also the MLB.TV streaming games, but I'd doubt I'd ever do that. I bought a couple of classic games, and the resolution is only 320x240, so it's a really tiny picture.

Thanks. A buddy of mine got the streaming mlb.tv and that is about half the price of the Extra Innings package, so I was wondering how good it was.
