Can I have permission to get rid of my TV? Answered
+ It's analog, with a 13" (no, really, 13 inches diagonally) screen. + I haven't plugged it in since I moved a year ago: I rely on Hulu and Netflix on my (bigger-screened) iMac. + If I really wanted to watch broadcast TV in the future, I could get a TV-tuner-thingo for the iMac (for perhaps not too much more than the cost of a digital-to-analog converter). + My apartment is sub-dinky, and I need to get rid of anything extraneous. + The thrift store down the street is actually taking donations of crt-based analog TV's for free (i.e., no disposal charge). So, what's stopping me? ...I'm not sure: - Some nagging fear that I'm forgetting some vitally important function that only a 1996-model Toshiba Shrimpscreen can perform? - Or maybe just a perception that it'd be Un-American not to have a TV set somewhere in the house? I think I just need someone to say "Oh, fer the love of Pete - just give the darned thing the old heave-ho already" - anyone out there willing to oblige?
