This last week has been irritating for me. #1) My surround sound has issues. I noticed the other day that after my one year-old son pulled out the power wire in the back of the sub that there are TOYS inside the sub. You've GOT to be kidding me, right? So, I opened it up and took about 3 handfulls of toys out. I have a unit that is an all-in-one, type thing. The amp is in the subwoofer itself. The dvd player is a seperate unit that is dependant on the subwoofer. It has no audio out - it's all in the connection between the sub and player. Well, once it gets to a certain volume level where the amp needs to force more power for a loud sound in a movie or something, it shuts down. *sigh* I LOVE the sound that came out of my system. It rocked the house. *sigh again* #2) My two year old decided to put a penny into the front slot of my mac mini. As I tried to get the penny out with tweasers, it slipped in all the way. My wife actually flipped it over where the slot was facing down, slipped the tweasers in the front loader and was able to get the penny out. Let's just say for the 1st ten minutes, I was furious! #3) My 1 year old son decides to play around with the little flip door in front of the tv that has some a/v jacks, buttons for settings and stuff, breaks the plastic door off. Now the buttons are all exposed for him to play with - jack the picture, sound, settings all up. *sigh* So, now, when my wife and I want to watch a movie, it has to be done on the mac mini in the bedroom. On a 17" CRT monitor No surround sound It's not like I'm a big movie buff anyway. The only ones I buy are the ones that the kids like, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Adam Sandlers, X-Men series, Batman series, Matrix Series. I don't buy very many, but it's the point of the whole thing. I have told my wife that I came to the conclusion that I just can't have anything nice until the kids are out of the house. (17 years to go) I am going to run to best buy today and purchase a cheapy dvd player, just to get us through till I can get my surround sound repaired (maybe).
