it's good to have a big TV
Well, we all love big TVs (except Don). During the 16 days trip in Tasmania, we had a TV set on most nights , only one night we had a TV larger than 20-inch. Laurent and I were watching TVs on tiny TVs most of the nights in Tasmania.
Although I never felt that a 40 or 52-inch TV is that big, after two weeks of tiny TV sets, the Sony Bravia LCD TV suddenly became very big. It was very enjoyable when watching Disney's Cars on Blu-ray (via Sony PlayStation 3). (to Don: Antony is poor, he does not have a Blu-ray player.). Perhaps open-source extremists won't consider 40- or 52-inch TV big, but it certainly big for Antony.
I also missed one episode of Prison Break, and my scheduled recording was screwed up due to the power cut in Sydney. I might get the episode from iTunes Store. Either I did not set it up properly or the design is simply. The main power backup device (1500VA UPS) I bought in April did not switch back up itself once the power is used up and the main power returns.
The smaller UPS I have (Belkin Surge Protector with Battery Backup, 600VA) did work well, it switched itself back on after the power returns. However, the Belkin one was only connected to my ADSL modem/router and Time Capsule.
(to Don: Antony is poor.).
