Confessions of a tech scavenger

The 50-inch TV in my basement is top of the line. The best that Hitachi had to offer in 1996. It was 12 years old when I found it next to the dumpster behind an audio/video store. The colors didn't line up right any more, but a visit to a friend who fixes such TVs and about $150 later, it works great.
