Out of the Blue

I mentioned the BlueTower was being rewired last week, and this is now complete. Our DirecTV service had started breaking up, and it turned out this was because some trees had grown tall enough to interfere with the satellite signal, and since we refused to allow them to attach the dish to our brand-new roof, we needed a new television provider. We now are using an actual cable for our cable TV, as well as for Internet and telephone, and everything seems to be working properly at the moment, so we'll see how this goes. I do have to say that my first impressions of Cablevision's online DVR are that it's utterly horrible, and depending on my options for dealing with this, I may end up getting a TiVo.

R.I.P.: Actress Lauren Bacall dies at 89. Song tributes. Bertie Higgins: "We had it all. Just like Bogie and Bacall. Starring in our old late, late show. Sailing away to Key Largo." And the Clash: "I thought I saw Lauren Bacall. I thought I saw Lauren Bacall. I swear! Hey fellas, Lauren Bacall!"
