The washing machine in my apartment building is disintegrating. The left rear corner is missing, so it now precariously balances on two feet, sometimes having the third remaining foot tap the floor. The machine sprung a leak at some point, and the one corner rusted to pieces. I'm not sure how quickly that happened. But, the thing worked just fine when I did laundry today. I expected it to skitter across the laundry room, but it behaved itself quite nicely.
It looks like Sony just came out with a 36" version of the TV I have been looking at getting. But, while the image appears to be a 16:9 display, the website seems convinced that it is a 4:3 display. The bigger TV seems to be less expensive than the smaller one. Weird. No sense in committing to getting it if I can't determine what sort of a thing the display actually is…
Still, I'm getting a bit concerned with weight. The 34" television is just over 200 lbs., while the 36" version is 230. Eep. I doubt I'd be comfortable moving either of those with any less than 3 people on hand.
Or maybe it just gives me an excuse to work out, har har.
My brain did not want to shut off last night. Maybe I'd had too much caffeine, or the Fair food I had for lunch was catching up with me. Somehow, I managed to combine self-pity for lacking a girlfriend with thought experiments regarding the behavior of photons speeding across an expanding universe.
Such is the life of a geek.Posted by mike at September 1, 2003 02:58 PM | Abode , TV | TrackBack
