    good deal(s) for surge protector?

    Yup, I bought a Brickwall surge protector 9 years ago, it was $200 but I feel that it saved me a couple of times already. It is certainly not cheap that people are looking for, but I am protecting over $5k worth of equipment, I think $200 (235 now it looks like) is a worthy investment.

    Batman Arkham Asylum $0.99 at OnLive

    Get the microconsole. I hooked it up to the same HDTV and compare the visual quality of the HTPC and the resolution is noticeably higher. Thru the MC, it looks like the 360/PS3 game. But it also demands higher bandwidth (and have slightly more graphical hiccups).

    Lenovo Multimedia Remote w/ Keyboard $29.99
