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?

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 

Be well,

You rock. That's why Blockbuster's offering you one month of Blockbuster Total 
Access, No Cost.
