I was in Rochester, NY, visiting with the in-laws recently,
when my father-in-law asked me if I could set up "one of those
black boxes" for him. He hasn't ripped a CD in his life, but
the ability to listen to a Farsi radio station on the house
stereo (on a different floor and _wing_ of an ~1820s building)
is the KillerApp.

I wasn't going to get one shipped in time, so I found the folks
at HouseDigital (myhousedigital.com) and drove over [the other
group in Rochester wasn't as helpful]. They were extremely
nice, hung out with me for a while discussing the relative
merits of the slim vs. Sonos, and offered to help with any
post-installation issues.

I returned to home base, downloaded the Windows server for the
first time, and fired it up.

Insert 60 minute distraction here while also fiddling with the
Powerline adaptors for the first time. Got them working after
agreeing not to use the powerstrips.

I was surprised at how 'kind' the Windows installation was and
the SB3 picked up right away. Awesome. It's always nice to
have something work right out of the box. During our attempt to
run things wirelessly, I used the SB3 as a wireless detector as
I walked around while watching the Signal Strength indicator
(20' makes all the difference, as we know).

So, just a 'thanks' to Slim and a plug for the friendly folks at
HouseDigital.
