Should I try another wireless speaker system?

Just found an email, that Radio Shack has the HomePlug speaker transmitters in stock again.

It was because it was out of stock, that I started thinking of skipping the process and see about saving up for a Yamaha YSP-1000.

But, I'm a long way off from reaching that goal...and the HomePlug stuff is relatively cheaper....of course, that assumes that it'll work.

The lack of good sound is really impairing my HT enjoyment...and has impacted my NetFlix subscription...in that there hasn't been any activity on my account since I've moved....

Hmmm..... :??:

Guess, it was a false notification....their site still shows it as out of stock. >:-(

Good-bye Lingo

Well, this morning I saw the monthly charge from Vonage hit my card....and it occurred to me that it was time to hurry up and cancel my Lingo account.

I plan to cancel both eventually....but Lingo first....because all I ever get weird calls that must be from exempt telemarketers that don't understand that asking to speak to someone who doesn't exist....when they get my voicemail and then asking again, and then saying they are sorry and good bye....isn't very useful.

They should just not call at all. (or perhaps leave a meaningful message.)

Otherwise, my call volume on the line has been dropping for a long time...the main reason I had it was that Western Europe is part of its 'local' calling area....but my cousin in London is moving to California. And, even then I have only called a few times....mainly use our gmail accounts to keep in touch.

So, I cancelled it. And, it wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it would be.

Wonder how it'll go when I decide that it is time to drop Vonage. |-|

I want to give blood

And, there's a blood drive coming up next week at the University :D

However, I just called 1-800-GIVE-LIFE, twice....and both time they connected me to Massachusetts, which won't schedule appointments for Manhattan, KS. And, I have never been able to schedule appointments using their website.

For Manhattan, KS...the drives never show up, so I can't even try. And, back when I was in Dublin, OH....I would schedule, and then they would later email me that the drive has been cancelled and so has my appointment. But, later I'll find out that the drive still took place. And, if they hadn't told me not to show up...I could've given blood. :**:

But, now that classes are in session....I suspect it'll be much harder to just walk in to give blood during my lunch break....it already took a long time when I gave blood the last time.

What am I to do? :??:

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
