world o' stuff [Aug. 31st, 2006|09:21 pm]

[Current Mood |excitedexcited]

As djedi mentioned, our stuff is here! I'm sitting in a chair now, which is very exciting!

Anyway, I took some time while the movers were hauling in our stuff to put up pictures from our move.

We bought an S-Video cable today. On the package, it says

For hook-up of a DVD player with an S-Video connection; carries video signal over two discreet paths

So, the misspelling of "discrete" is pretty funny in and of itself. But what does it mean, even without the misspelling? "Discrete" is the opposite of "continuous" (right?), so...what? It carries a signal over one path...anyway, I'm confused.

The first definition of "discrete" in the several dictionaries pretty much synonymizes the word to "separate" so I think they're ok there. Comes from the latin "to separate" too :).
