Here’s what I played last week:

  • Elite Dangerous: Horizons (PC)
  • Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition (Tabletop)

Short list this week…and even shorter play times! But that’s okay because building computers is fun!

Most of my free time over the last week as been building a media server to run Plex. When that was done, the rest of my free time and 99% of my CPU power was spent ripping seasons of Parks and Rec that we have on DVD.

The reason for the server is two fold:

  1. Most of what we’re putting on there is available through Netflix or Hulu which eats up our data cap but we have it on DVD too…which leads to reason 2
  2. We’re too lazy to swap discs out so we would stream and eat up our data cap

Now that there’s a good bit on content on the server, I won’t shotgun ripping like I did this weekend. I think The West Wing is a good “next choice” for ripping. But it’ll probably be the Simpsons seasons we have.
