I think for the holidays I will investigate and . I will have to learn about multicast. Perhaps I can learn to stream movie files to a smartv tv. I should be able to at least discover what sort of devices are listening on my network.

A person made a really nice intro to using Org Mode for life planning :) Most other intros I've seen aren't about tasks or are too coupled with a person's particular workflows (and implicit power usage) so I really appreciate this series' clarity :D
