Well I am angry. I decided I was going to setup to get broadcast TV, I go to get the converter, well a HDTV (small one, open box) was only $20 more, so I get it. The TV is fine but I go to hook up the antenna that the apartment building ran, only to[…]

Question, when I stopped doing political posts, I kind of started letting the site slide, should I continue trying not to do political posts, or shoudl I say forget it and just post political stuff if the fancy hits me.
