I just noticed that Turner Classic Movies will be showing a letterbox transfer of "Exodus" tonight, at 8:00pm Eastern Standard Time:

Look for Randy Stankey's frame of the refugees on the ship "Exodus".

Also, when you watch "Exodus" in the letterbox format, think how great a 70mm print looked on a 30x66 foot screen in 1960 , and question why it can't be done for today's big movies.

If only I had a television! Mine's busted and I'm not about to pay the prices some of those guys charge.

I'm pretty sure I know what's wrong with it. I figure I'll take a crack at it myself someday when I get time.

Definetly watch out for the capaciter. Make sure you are using tools with rubber insulators on them.

It only takes one "sting" from the anode lead of a CRT to remember to discharge it for the rest of your life.

I always clipped a lead to the chassis ground after discharging it, so any residual charge wouldn't zap me while working around it.

A bit of rubber insulation won't always stop 20 kilovolts.

Oh, Yeah! I've had some fun with those things back when I was at Vo-Tech. There's a water pipe in the lab that has about 9,000,000 burn marks on it from being used to ground out picture tubes, etc.

What I think the problem is (thanks to some advice from Bruce McGee) is a loose solder joint.

The vertical oscillator circuit goes dead and causes the picture to collapse into one thin, white line that goes horizontally cross the screen.

I really don't think it'll be too difficult to fix. (Assuming one takes his time and works with due care.) It's just that I might be home 2-3 days per week. I just don't have the time or inclination to fix the thing, much less sit down and watch it once I DO get it fixed.

Honestly, I don' t miss TV all that much anyway. I get most of my news from the newspaper and off the computer. Otherwise, I turn on NPR when I'm driving in the car. After you stop watching TV for about a month the addiction wears off and you really lose a lot of interest in watching.

I used to watch hours upon hours of TV growing up. Now that i'm in the 2nd half of my twenties, i find myself watching less and less. However, I also listen to AM talk radio more and more. is this a sign?
