New system is sitting next to the old system and is functioning. I sat there and watched 3 Inuyasha dvds with some good headphones while hubby was doing his thing on the puter. I like listening to the Japanese voice tracks...and as I play around with the language, I discover interesting things like just how often InuYasha uses "temee" which you wouldn't necessarily realize from the English. Video and audio from the near gear is much, much better than the little dinky portable TV I was using.
Now the fun part comes...transferring data.
