I just wanted to pop in and say that the title text is a reference to 'A wrinkle in Time' my Madeleine L'Engle.

Re: 1012: "Wrong Superhero"

It's fairly obvious to me that the third superhero is Adamology.
Sounds very similar to Etymology to me, and it would literally be the study of Adam, the first man created in Genesis.

I agree, if you know what you're doing, you can remove all the hardware and put it into a small case to use as a personal media computer connected to your television.
You can use it for general downloading, as well as watching movies/tv/netflix or listening to music.
