Weekend household chores in the digital age

* Install Tiger on Mac Mini. painless.
* Rip latest CD purchases.
* Update ipods
* Install and tune surround sound system in game room
* download last 5 alias episodes using bitcomet. (lest you think i am a rampant pirate — i pay directv for satellite service, i pay comcast for hdtv service, we’ve purchased alias seasons 1, 2, and 3 on dvd. i am paying to watch alias every freakin’ way the industry will let me pay, so i don’t need to hear any crap about my downloads. give me a legal way to pay for HD alias downloads and I’ll pay for that too.)

Someone from 100 years ago would find my chore list to be incomprehensible.
