... and from the other end of the spectrum ... My first DVD was 'True Lies' - I had to buy one to make sure the DVD drive on my new PC worked. That was almost 2 years ago ... and it's still the only DVD I own. I don't watch much TV. RonL. (Who hasn't even had cable since 'the man' turned off my free cable about 6 years ago. I've got a TV with 'rabbit ears' now - <with Jack-in-the-Box balls on the ends to improve commercial reception>. ;-) Gosh - just remembered - when I *did* have cable, I didn't even have a TV! [I had a 15" color NEC monitor and a TV tuner box (with remote!) -- the tuner had absolutely no brand name on it whatsoever - which I always found vaguely disconcerting. My son was not amused. Bad Dad! But it would let him play his Sega.] I've got a Sony PS1 that mostly sits and gathers dust until my son comes down to play it.) -----Original Message----- From: spinhead [mailto:evolt at spinhead.com] My first DVD was 'The Princess Bride.' Standing there in Costco, it just didn't seem to matter that I had no DVD player at the time. It called my name, and I answered. So now, if you count all my son's game systems and various PCs, we've got five DVD players. It's a sickness, and it has to stop.
