Ceci n'est pas une personne.

(no subject)

The new TV is here and it is glorious!

We got it set up last night, and I have to say, digital broadcast is pretty damn awesome. More channels, higher res., and the pictures is a lot cleaner.

And one nice bonus, my old rabbit ear antenna with uhf loop works great for receiving digital.

As for more channels, I used to get 7, I now get about 20, sadly about a third of them are bible thumper channels. I think my favorite is channel 7.2, which is a CBS channel, but they just play shows I loved as a kid, The A-Team, Magnum P.I., Airwolf, Simon & Simon, etc. All retro all the time. Plus Fox has a 24hr weather channel (13.2), which is a plus. Also there is a station that so far only plays auto racing. I'm hoping they have coverage of the Dakar Rally.

I still need to get the TV mounted about the fireplace, but that's next paycheck.
