I'm not such a tech-head after all

Since my tv watching had dived to nil even before I gave my tv away, I hadn't paid any attention to changes in the broadcast industry, so I had no idea that the entire country is going to completely switch from analog to digital broadcasting in on February 17, 2009.

Well that will open a whole new can of worms. What will people in trailer parks do? (Watch tv as usual, of course, as they've spent what would normally be housing income on 52" HDTV-ready plasma screens hooked up to satellite dishes.)

I do actually intend to buy a new tv at some point. I suppose the need to be "digital ready" will guide my decision, though will the digital tvs of today still be viable two years from now? You know how things are in the world of high tech toys.

But that's far in the future, and I may just decide to keep on opting out. Right now I have a million books to find places for. And I still have to unpack a thousand boxes. Once I would simply have used them as the furniture I didn't have, but now I actually have furniture, so the boxes are just in the way.

Don't worry, he's just chopping broccoli.
