even if you play games on 1080i ... 720p looks the same.

That's good to know. After we got the 720p system, I thought we'd made a mistake for not getting the higher end system.

One thing I could kick myself for it not waiting until today/tomorrow to buy it. Even though it wasn't on sale this weekend, it is TAX free this weekend in SC. I never had heard of that before. Usually they only do that on the back to school weekend. Ugh.

Be sure to read the fine line on no tax. It does not cover anything that is not considered education use, at least in Jackson, TN that is the way it is read. :)

That's the rules for the back to school sale too, but this weekend I believe it's ALL items. It was meant to boost sales I think, and was a first. Perhaps a one time only deal.

I believe it even applied to automobiles, quite a savings if one purchased a new car.

I was wondering when you were going to get around to that...LOL
Everytime I started watching it, Clemson would go ahead and I'd leave. When I'd come back, it would be tied. I finally decided that I'd better turn it off before the end of the game so SC would have a chance.

For a while there I was thinking, "Oh god this is going to end up like Florida, Auburn, Arkansas, or Tenn and we'll loose by less than a touchdown." Florida last week killed me loosing by a point.

But I have to admit... beating Clemson in Death Valley makes it oh so sweet (as said above, LOL). We should have won by a lot larger margin. I could shoot that big defensive back who could have scored a TD, but got fancy and decided to trot slow before he got in the endzone. Ball got nocked out of his hands and went through the end zone resulting in a touchback. That'd have put us up by 10. Argh. Had we lost I've have PO'd.

I don't know what they did with Blake Mitchell a few weeks back, but whoever this new guy is that looks like him... WOW.

Now it's time to go bowling. And in the mean time pray Spurrier doesn't like Miami. LOL. I can't believe they fired Coker after ONE bad year. What a bunch of morons.
