Right now, how are you reading the 50+ Forum?

Right now, how are you reading (and posting?) to the 50+ Forum?

I am sitting in my recliner watching TV (Dancing with the Stars) with my wife in the family room with a laptop on wifi on my lap.

How about you?

Left to right.

Okay. At my desk in the living room, Thunderbird e-mail in the left monitor, and Firefox in the right one (Dual-monitor rig).

Yow!

And the rear tire just blew. Had trouble seating that one. I guess I'll investigate.

Laptop? Wi-fi? Sounds like cutting-edge stuff. I've got cat-5 (or6?) cable all the way around the perimeter of the room to the desktop PC. Looking at an LCD monitor, but it's small and cheap.
I have to look over my shoulder at the TV.

Sitting in my recliner in the living room, reading BF on the laptop I bought last weekend, wife in the kitchen, daughter studying at the kitchen table, dog asleep on the floor. TV is only connected to a DVD player, and now with the laptop I can watch DVDs on that.

At the laptop in the living/office/bike storage room. TV is off as it is much of the time, lately.

Darn. One of my studded snows too. There was a funky spot on the bead. It wouldn't seat at all on the front rim, but it seemed to seat all right on the back one. Had trouble seating it last year too, but it went all winter. This year, 4.05 miles. Guess I'll be shopping for another one tomorrow.

And I'm here to tell you, 700x38mm at 65 PSI makes a heluva bang. My ears are still ringing.

I started going so long between times, that I couldn't remember how long it had been. I started keeping a log of how often I watched it. When it got to six months, I listed the thing on Craigslist. That was March of 2004. No TV since.

Thank heavens McCarthyism is over with. I would likely be brought up on charges of being un-American. No car, no TV, no cell phone, no credit cards, no air conditioning, don't eat at fast food restaurants...

Sitting at the desk in my front room while drinking cabernet and listening to Enya's Shepard Moon and Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon on the CD player through 1970's-era concert sized speakers.

Strange how those two albums, even though they're made 30 years apart, sound so compatible; maybe its the wine?

In the front bedroom, which is not a bedroom at all, anymore. My wife is grading papers and listening to TV (not sure what show) in the living room. The cat has been fed and has wandered off for the night.

In my office in my house, in my undies. The ones with the holes in 'em. Good thing you can't see me through the monitor!
