Well where to start..haha
Living in California recently divorced raising my 17 almost 18 year old by my self she will go off to college next year and I will be leaving California and going home back home to Buffalo NY where I own a house there. Left Buffalo in 93 and Joined the USMC, loved it out here so I stayed now its time to go home !
Due to a work injury I have had 2 spinal surgeries and it seems this is as good as I will get so career change !!! Heading back to school at my age is SCARRY !! but i have the opportunity to do what I have always had a passion for, and by reading all of your posts on this subject it seems I'm in good company !!! Heading back to school to get my degree in computer science, already have a math tutor lined up LOL, like I said its been a while since I was last in school !!
Currently I have DTV and I think it is way to expensive especially for what I watch, so as Im getting my house ready I'm also finding solutions to save money and cut back. The DVR is key for me as I hate commercials unless its the Super Bowl, came across this and a few others and I liked the way it is set up to stream anywhere like my Slingbox.
I run a Mac Mini as a PLEX server and have a 65" 4k TV, Blue Ray player, Pioneer SC-75 9.2 channel with 4k pass thru, with airplay compatibility which I love by the way I can control music from anywhere as long as I'm on the network ! I run 2 460 watt self powered 12 " subs and 2 rti12 speakers and a center channel speaker sounds killer ! A total of 10 tb NAS one is 8 and the other is 2. I use the NAS to store all my media the PLEX server pulls it all from there. Cant forget the turntable LOL love the Vinyl !!! hahah
Before my injury I worked at a Nuclear Facility and during that time I also went to school and graduated from Le Cordon Bleu, so yeah I'm also a Chef. Other then that I won't bore you with any more details !! Just glad to have found what I was looking for and can't wait to implement all of your recommendations and watch it go !!!
