Ugh..my TV just died this afternoon. I was watching it, and heard a short "squee" sound, and the picture collapsed to the lower-left half of the screen, about an inch wide. Must have lost something with the deflection coils.

Was vaguely hoping it would die, so I'd have an excuse to buy a nice new hi-def box, but was thinking in terms of maybe around christmas, when I was guessing the Samsung I'd been eyeing at Best Buy would be maybe under $1000. Be careful what you wish for I guess...

And it had to go just when the Tour de France was starting. I missed it last year when it went to OLN, but was psyched because they added that channel to our cable lineup last winter. Got to see the prologue this morning, LA sure didn't waste any time taking charge of the race.
