Well, now that the DTV Transition deadline has moved, you don't have to rush out and do this this weekend. However, once your old analog TV becomes obsolete (since you didn't get a converter box and they're as hard to come by as the newest Elmo toy on Black Friday) you can convert the whole TV into something quite useful.
Ulnplggd.com has published instructions for how to convert your old TV into either an aquarium or terrarium. The instructions even show you how to use the on/off switch to power the light in the fish tank.
Give it a try and let us know how it works out. I'll bet it's even more realistic than HD. --Leslie Shapiro
