Last night our TV gave up the ghost. When we turn it on, it makes an ugly discordant buzzing noise. It's likely that the transformer's busted (the TV used to whine for a while after it was switched off). Looking at reviews, it seems that people tend to be dissatisfied with this model, and that about 9 or 10 months on a refurb is better than some have gotten.

I don't know yet whether we're going to try to get it repaired, replace it, or just go without DDR and other assorted video games until summer when I'm earning again. Certainly, we're going to do a bit more research next time.

As a student, you have to take what you can get (IIRC, you got that TV from a sketchy pawn shop, no?)

I have recently picked up some independent consulting work, which given the crazy rates I can charge for consulting will likely be buying me an LCD HDTV and a nice sound system. I'll have to find a good home for the 24" flatscreen CRT at that point.

You have no idea. For this kind of short-term emergency work ("Head office fired our entire IT staff and we need to completely rebuild our Active Directory nodes") it starts at $200/hr and goes *up* from there.
