Apparently, splurging is good for your health. So what are you waiting for? Go buy that new HDTV or whatever you've been pining for. I just picked up some Edgeport USB to serial adapters off of eBay - hardly a luxury so I guess this doesn't count. I have been resisting the call of the HDTV mainly because I'm trying to keep our electricity usage under the 300% of baseline threshold, at which the rates increase significantly. We're not that far under it and an HDTV would push us over for sure.
