Well, you do realize that a TV is just a monitor, right? It's pretty versatile since you can watch DVD's on it, play video games and when all else fails you can do this.

I've got the monitor for watching DVDs and playing on consoles, but I don't have the digital box thingie that delivers TV-channels. Anyway, sports, yeah, I guess it'd be good for that. I like the Olympics but don't really care for the rest. I secretly enjoy if Finland loses to Sweden in ice hockey, at least it shuts up the hockey maniacs. The last time Finland won it was nothing but NONSTOP HOCKEYMANIA for a year. It drove me nuts.

TV does feel very primitive, the commercials are the main reason I very very rarely watch it at all, as far as I'm concerned it's only used to displaying my games and movies.

Why the hell do they do this, he was clearly just folding his arms for the photo, why the fuck do they have to photoshop arms in!?

It's even got a Lens Flare!

Photoshop win, everyone!

TV totally sucks. The few good shows are better on DVD anyway since you can watch them in chunks or at your leisure and without commercials.

I concur, TV totally blows. There are a few good channels here (like arte which do not have commercials), tho.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

I've been playing the new Tales of Monkey Island by Telltale games and even when I'm a hardcore MI fan (thus pretty critical about any remakes and new versions of the ip) I must admit that I kinda like it! So far only thing that has bothered me is some of the artistic choises for the characters and I can't understand why all Telltale games are so lowpoly but all in all, it sounds and looks and feels really Monkey Islandish.

Pff, TV. I haven't had any channels on mine since I moved here, a year and a half ago. The only thing I can say I really miss is accidently zapping past Simpsons reruns when I'm bored, and ye olde Discovery Channel. But of course, I'd stumble on both while trying to waste time, so the only thing they really do is help people waste time. I don't know, I'm kinda glad I can't do that anymore.

I'm less happy about my 360 still being broken, meaning I haven't even used said TV for many months...

does anyone know corel painter very well? I'm painting using pure black but on the canvas it's not pure black. it ends up reading about 28,28,28 even though painter says 0,0,0. but when i save as JPG it ends up as pure black. why does it look lighter on canvas?

Sounds like something wonky is happening with your gamma settings. I don't have a copy of Painter handy, but somewhere in the menus there is a wizard that lets you set up your color preferences.
