||I like a good picture and decent sound when watching movies, but I am not a perfectionist, not having that discerning of an eye or that discerning of an ear, but I do prefer DVDs over streaming, and Blu-ray discs (when available) over DVDs. But my 50-in HD TV is good enough to replace trips to the theater.
|Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):
||Active and volunteer in my church.
I watch too much TV, lots of DVDs and streams from Netflix. My tastes are nuts-and-bolts science fiction and creature features; golden age broadway musicals; almost-slapstick comedies)
|What I do for a living:
||Retired March 2011. I had worked 30 years at the local community college, last 20 years in their IT department, maintaining administrative software (mostly applying updates from the vendor and maintaining a document library of vendor documentation).
