ditching everything but the computer
I regularly concoct new plans for arranging the living spaces of my flat to allow for the varying numbers of adults and children it accomodates at various times. (Goodness. That sounds more bohemian than it actually is.) Today’s plan, which, you never know, might even be acted upon, not only involves switching the room functions around completely, but also requires chucking my TV, DVD player and my excuse for a stereo and replacing them all with a nice 20″ imac. With a bit of hacking it even appears I could probably set up a mac like a TiVo, so it’d record television broadcasts and let me record them, pause live broadcasts, all that. Even outside of the US. All this thanks to the open source project XMLTV. They don’t have Norwegian listings yet, though they have Danish ones, but someone’ll want to do this, soon, even in Norway.
That’d save space. And be so much cooler.
