I don't really watch television either except maybe a little bit on the weekends, plus the other television is 65 inches, so why this burning desire for a flat screen to replace the 37" I'll never know. Since it apparently takes up the same amount of space there doesn't seem to be much point to getting one anyway. I think I'm over it. Until I walk into a store and see those beautiful flat panel television screens... Back myself to reality, for Eric, if everything is useful to someone seems the landfills wouldn't be overflowing. It would be nice if it was, would solve a lot of problems. I think a really good industry which was all the rage around 2003 and got forgotten about is thermal depolymerization, or converting finished products back into their constituent oil and other parts. Whatever happened to that anyway? Ursula Stange <Ursula@xxxxxxxxxx> wrote: Nothing to be sorry about. I forgot to mention that she doesn't watch TV and will shortly be making more money than I ever did. I'm interested in your story of struggle, though. I broke down and bought one of those nifty large, flat monitors. It's lovely. Along with a new computer (I only ever had hand-me-downs before), I can have so much stuff open it's ludicrous (and probably counter-productive). Right now, I have 6 Firefox's open (some with twenty tabs), one PowerPoint, 3 Excel sheets (grades, don't you know...), this Thunderbird mailbox, and three Word docs. The only quibble I have with the screen is that all that hulking space the back of the old monitor used to take is now useless as I still need the monitor pulled up to the front of the shelf it's on. Annoys me unreasonably. Be well, Ursula --------------------------------- You rock. That's why Blockbuster's offering you one month of Blockbuster Total Access, No Cost.
