I've been trying to keep up today, more than all week. But yeah, I think you're right.

Needs more cowbell.

I can't tell whether it's less active or not.
I could take Sean Connery in a fight... I could definitely take him.

I'd vote, but I never vote in public polls.

Actually I've just been busy getting my new TV set up and running Plex and Hulu.

Hulu support is pretty buggy and I haven't gotten it working yet. I can browse TV shows but anytime I try to play a video I get an "unsupported content" message. I'm sure there's some mundane setting I'm missing but most of the Google hits I'm getting when searching for answers are either the initial release of Plex for AppleTV or people discussing whether or not Hulu will come to AppleTV.

Pandora support is pretty lame, too, I much prefer how Boxee does Pandora.

So it turns out that the way taxes are done now, instead of getting the taxes back that were taken from my pay; if you make more then $5 a year, then you owe the country. I owe $200 this time around

I got an episode of Running Wilde to play last night, but nothing else, and my queue doesn't come up. The way it works is the Plex Media Server (running on my Mini) transcodes the Hulu feed and streams it to the AppleTV. Plex was pushing about 130% my Mini (2.0C2D, 4GB) to watch the show. Quality was less than normal but it played smoothly.

Been busy profiting from the good weather. Bad news is that the beer/charcoal/red meat budget has gone up.

I checked the last of the options, even though today is actually a Sunday.

No, this place is not a ghost town today. Everything is simply moving faster than the speed of light so you can't actually see it.
Been inclined to wander... off the beaten track.
That's where there's thunder... and the wind shouts back.
