    I might spend part of the time hooking up my surround speakers. I used to have a 5.0 setup when I lived up north, but the main room down here in Florida doesn't lend itself to a surround setup without wires running all over the place. I've been living with a 3.0 setup now for a couple of years. So I need to investigate other options. Assuming I'm successful, that would mean pulling out some nifty surround-reference-type DVDs and Blu-rays and giving the sound system a whirl. I'll undoubtedly spend part of the time on the computer, marveling at the hometheaterforum.com page which will likely say something like "We're moving" or "Under Construction" or here's our Facebook and Twitter address for updates. And I'll undoubtedly hit refresh a number of times on those aforementioned Twitter pages (I'm not a Facebook guy and won't go there.) And I might take advantage of Spring Training Baseball down here in Florida. Harry

    I will be on vacation in Florida during that time, so it won't affect me at all.

    I will be sitting and staring at my computer screen, my conscience wracked, daydreaming of stealing Mike Knapp's spot on The Price Is Right.

    I'll spend the time working on my sky-blue1964 Cadillac DeVille convertible. Seems to have had a run in with a bus.

    I will be crawling into a fetal position and sucking my thumb until this horror is over.

    I'll just be thankful that the change is happening over the weekend, when I actually have interesting things to do. Had the move happened during the week, I might have had to.... work... while I was at work .

    I'll probably spend more time on the photography forums, and wishing I was a better photographer. I'm sure I'll catch a movie or two also, from Netflix, while anxious about HTF getting back online. :) Good luck surviving the time off everyone! Eat well, and drink plenty of liquids...............

    I'll be in Arizona, in my shorts and tee shirt, with a cold microbrew in my hand, watching spring training baseball. If I can't be online at HTF, I'll just have to be satisfied with this.

    I'll be watching the Blu-ray of Lawrence of Arabia twelve times in a row, and smiling each time I see Robert A. Harris' name in the credits.

    I'll be watching Action/Adventure/Crime/Mystery films from my collection or playing board games (Catan, Carcassonne, Labyrinth, or Seeland) with the grandkids while my computer, undergoing heavy withdrawal pains, refreshes the HTF page automatically every 30 seconds. :)

    I will be sitting in front of my computer monitor, finger poised on the mouse, and wailing, until my beloved HTF is back on line.

    I guess I will be giving the Penn theatre in Wilmington another chance to entertain me. As I had a not too good a time when I went to see "Zero Dark Thirty". I have a reantry ticket. The picture was shown in the wrong aspect before I reported it. Only one Management person was working. I felt sorry for her, trying to run the booth and deal with complaints. The Imax was down also. Should always be at lease two managers on when they also have to run the booth.
