Mina left right after dinner this evening. We hope she'll decide to attend Duke, but know she'll do whatever's in her best interest.
We left our tv off this evening and enjoyed the silence. I suppose it's not that difficult to leave it off, as MythTv frees us from the binds of the broadcasting networks by allowing us to watch what we want when we want and even where we want for free! So, as we sit here in front of our sleeping television, we know that the computer in the other room is working very hard to save CSI:Miami (and other things) to the hard disk for viewing whenever we please.
Either way, the peace and quiet has allowed me to have some engaging chats with friends over the internet and I do truely feel like it's thus far been a beneficial experience.
