Finally, a class was cancelled at CSUS. It's been 2/3 of an entire semester with 5 classes and only 1 cancelled so far. When I was going to ARC, I could look forward to several missed classes per semester :). Oh well, I got to go to work for an extra two hours and made some extra money.
While I was at work, I bought a motherboard and a processor (AMD XP 1800+) with my employee discount for the PVR box (mentioned below). I got home and assembled it using the case from my old computer. So far I haven't turned it on yet because of the shelf (mentioned below) made it hard to plug in cables, so I'm waiting to get some more free time and run it in the other room.
