I spent a while setting up the DVD recorder, only to realize that it only records in composite or S-video. I knew that when I bought it, but forgot. It'll still be just as useful for my purposes, but unless I'm streaming the video and capturing at the same time, it's not going to be any better than the old method.
I discovered that the .hack games I bought yesterday are actually part of a completely different series from the one I had. There's a bonus for playing both, but I need to get the rest of each. Some of those games are really expensive on Amazon, even used. I plan to make a joke about that in the upcoming project I mentioned a few paragraphs up. I just wanted to have something to tie the whole entry together. I want to get back to work on it before The Cleveland Show is over.
