Comment: Sourcing a CRT SDTV (Score 1) 163

[Emulation problems] may all have solutions, but none are as simple or practical as plugging the actual hardware into a CRT SDTV that just works and looks great.

Sourcing a CRT SDTV with A/V inputs in good condition and making a place for it in your home might not necessarily be practical. Many CRT SDTVs that I see at garage sales and charity shops have only an RF input, introducing noise and requiring an RF modulator at additional cost for fifth-generation and later consoles.

Will I need to buy a car to get a job?

To get one? Probably not

I understand that the first interview is conducted over the phone or Skype (I have both) and the second in person. Do candidates commonly ride Greyhound to and from this second interview? Or should candidates expect to endure the sexual overtones of U.S. airport security theater such as Rapiscan and enhanced patdowns?

Admittedly in some big cities you wouldn't need one as much, but locations vary

Currently I use a bicycle in a (probably different) midwestern town to commute to and from the office where I work as a web application programmer.

Skirts below full length became very popular in England during WWII [as] a sign that you were doing your bit for the war effort

That explains it. Thank you.

I was taught that one ought to cover oneself from the shoulders down to at least the knees.

By whom and according to what logic.

At least Mormonism and Islam teach this minimum standard of modesty in order to ensure that the shape of one's privates remains covered so as to divert attention from sex. I guess knees covered by modest shorts (not Daisy Dukes though) are fine.

She shouldn't have worn that short skirt.

I agree that it's not a justification for sexual assault, but still: Why do women wear skirts that leave the knees bare? I was taught that one ought to cover oneself from the shoulders down to at least the knees.
