Had to buy a new bluray player, because of course everything breaks down at the same time... Okay, admittedly I bought most of my electronics when I moved back here 10 years ago, so they're about the same age. :) And hey, this time I found a player that's region-free, so now I'm able to watch my Spartacus blurays for the first time, yay! (My old player was only region-free for dvds, which I didn't know when I bought the box set.)
My bank account sure is glad I didn't get to go to NZ this year!
