home beta still a bit closed / today

Sony has sent out an update concerning the Qore subscribers gaining access to the Home Closed Beta. Only subscribers will get access, not anyone who who downloads the issue. “As an update to the PLAYSTATION(R)3 News email sent on Friday, October 24th, the special invitation to PlayStation(R)Home’s closed beta is available only to Qore annual subscribers who purchased subscriptions by 10/29. Qore Episode 06 purchasers will not be eligible for the special PlayStation(R)Home beta invitation at this time. We apologize for the miscommunication.” 😦

I awoke in the morning.. and got on Home Beta. No one was online. Well, barely anyone. I got depressed over a Home friend deleting me and went (virtual) bowling for a bit. Once I shut it off, I had to reboot the PC to get the internet connection working again (grrrr).. then had to reboot the living room DVR to get it working again (grrrrrrrr). So annoying. 😦 My dad returned home from dialysis while all this was imploding.. then I watched Saturday’s TMNT Back To The Sewer (not bad..). Next, we watched Ellen.. then I got online for a bit.

I returned to the living room a little bit later and watched the first five episodes of Family Guy: Volume 6 (lol, not only are these episodes now uncensored.. they’re also seem to be extended.. cooool 🙂 each of these episodes had a “original televised version” option in its special features, so “play episode” plays the extended & uncensored version.. one was about 2 minutes longer, for example), followed by Monday’s Power Rangers Jungle Fury (ew @ watching the premiere version with annoying “brand new” logo and blech closing credits.. I usually DVR and VHS the less-cluttered 11PM version, without those things.. but that wasn’t one this or next week 😦 ..episode was pretty ew too, for the most part).

I then got back on Home Beta. They were doing some kind of Halloween party with costumes.. and the most Home avatars I had ever seen in one place. It was cool. But I chose to turn it off early soon after I heard that our CBS was turned back on. It had been off all month, forcing me to download all the shows instead.. and missing my dad’s preferred local news and some other shows. The cable company refused to pay up to carry the affiliate. No mention of who caved. Hope it was the cable company (who supply my $42/month cable internet). Asses..

We had some supper, then I got online to news-gather.. I finished up by 8PM, then we watched Pushing Daisies (pretty good.. those two undercover as Chinese waitresses was kinda hot :p), Old Christine (lol.. so good to start watching CBS shows on the DVR again.. rather than downloading and having to wait longer), CSI NY (last week’s episode, DVRed tonight’s episode.. haha real dolls :p) and last night’s The Mentalist (this is most likely my favorite of the new series.. that deal with crimes.. that aren’t science fiction-related.. great show, nonetheless :p). And then I returned to my room for the night.. like always.. damnit..

For $42/month, they better offer “free home networking”. At least, that’s what I recall a commercial once saying. I should look into it. It’s starting to get annoying switching the modem from the PC to the PS3. Interrupting torrents and downloads, switching the cables back and forth multiple times a day. *looks @ prices on website* Oh.. nevermind then.. At first, I thought I’d have no problems since the PC and PS3 connect into separate ports in the modem.. but nope.. :/

See ya..
