Got a new tv

15 Jun

And my Bruins JUST WON THE CUP!! A massive 22 inch…it made Tim Thomas look as big as a Star Wars figure..uses 49 watts at 1.9 amps..little sips at the battery bank. YEAH!  I had to watch the finals on something bigger than the 5 inch black and white. YEAH!

    I used to have a CRT for the computer, that just about dimmed all the lights in the house when it fired up. LCDs are great, and the prices have really become reasonable nowadays.

    Someday my old TV will die and I can get a shiny new one. I rarely watch the thing, but it comforts me to know it is sitting there, it’s sole purpose in life to entertain me. Heh.

      hehe..yeah CRTs are not good for sipping power..they have more of a beer-funnel approach. Our 32inch blew last fall..We watched movies on it mostly and I didn’t think I would miss it..then the Bruins decided it was thier time to win and I got the TV on a day my will was weak. Cost $189 and since it is under 200 for $40 more I got a 4 year replacement deal so if there are any issues they just give me another one. A* is always falling asleep with the lights on but with the TV she now puts it on for 1/2 hour sleep mode so it goes off as she falls asleep and I don’t have to patrol the lights as much..It basically uses the same amount of energy as 2 7watt light bulbs when they are on. This is a slippy slope because now I might go get the Wii out of storage too..trouble.
