    Default Two Questions.

    Two things

    1. For Mozilla (running 2.0.0.4) is there an addon or something that allows multiple homepages? I want that when I open mozilla instead of just one homepage, tabs pop up with each of my different ones so I don't have to go and manually open every site I visit daily.

    2. Looking to buy a new TV, has to be under 1000 USD, between 32 and 40 inches, HD (preferably 1080p), at least 1600:1 contrast ratio, and NOT be DLP or rear projection.. Help?


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    1. can't help you here. I've got maxthon
    2. You could always try dumpster diving in a rich neighborhood. They throw out lots of neat stuff. Even if it isn't a 32 in HDtv, I'm sure you'll find something interesting. Or you could try a used computer shop. There are a couple near me that sell all kinds of used or refurbished tv's, monitors, computers and the like.

    Just google your first question. Google always has the answers. For your second question I don't know.

    1. It's built into Firefox (I assume you mean that, as Mozilla 2 doesn't exist far as I know XD ). Just goto preferences and under the home page option place a semi-colon between each address.

    2. Fuck of I know. I've always been partial to Sharp and Toshiba, myself. They don't have the raw performance of Sony, but they break a hell of a lot less.

    $1000 for a 1080p is pushing it too far. You are just asking for poor color reproduction and washed out color and panels that can't display the colour gamut as most others do.
    Push your budget to $1300 and get this one:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16889234002

    All the guys at hardware forums are raving about it.

    Avoid any 1080p displays that are less than 37" because the resolution (1920x1080 at 60Hz) would be too high for a display of that size.

    Finally, found my Consumer's *cough*Re*hack*po*wheeze*rt*cough*... It's sorta your lucky day, they just reviewed HD TVs in May, but yeah, looking at this your SOL and JWF (shit out of luck and jolly well fucked).

    That Westinghouse that Jyuu posted is "a notable value" and rated (from Excellent, to Very Good, to Good, to Fair, to Poor) as being Very Good in HD picture quality, Good in DVD picture quality, Good in Standard picture quality, Very Good in Sound Quality, Good in Remote function, and Very Good in Menu ease. No tuner support, but has 2 Component inputs and 1 HDMI input (2 DVIs also).

    For 1080p, the next step up in LCD tvs (don't like projection... blasphemy) is a Toshiba 42LX196 Cinema Series which is Excellent, Very Good, Very Good, Good, Excellent, and Fair (in respect to the order used for the Westinghouse review). Has support for ATSC, QAM, and CableCard with it's built-in tuner, and has 2 component inputs, and 2 HDMI inputs. Price tag is... $2300. XO

    If price is firm and 1080p isn't nessisary, I can throw out some more makes and models.

    I talked to my mom, shes willing to drop the 1080p (like i told her in the first place) but shes unwilling to go above $1000

    and please tell me I'm doing this wrong.

    Multiple homepages in firefox.... sorry, you use pipes in between addresses. My bad.

    " | " << A pipe

    TVs... hum...for $1000 and under...

    Olevia 532H (32-inch LCD):
    900$
    HD Picture: Very Good
    DVD Picture: Very Good
    Standard Def Picture: Very Good
    Sound Quality: Good
    Remote: Excellent
    Menu: Fair
    Features: ATSC and QAM Digital Tuner support, 1 component video input, 1 HDMI input

    Toshiba TheaterWide HD 32HL66 (32-inch LCD):
    1000$
    HD Picture: Excellent
    DVD Picture: Very Good
    Standard Def Picture: Good
    Sound: Good
    Remote: Excellent
    Menu: Fair
    Features: ATSC and QAM digital tuner support, 2 component video inputs, 1 HDMI input

    Toshiba TheaterWide HD 26HL66 (26-inch LCD):
    800$
    HD Picture: Excellent
    DVD Picture: Very Good
    Standard Def Picture: Very Good
    Sound: Very Good
    Remote: Excellent
    Menu: Fair
    Features: ATSC and QAM digital tuner support, 2 component video inputs, 1 HDMI input

    That's pretty much it. There is an 800$ 32-inch Magnavox that faired ok, but it's worth it to drop the extra 100/200 bucks on the Toshiba or Olivia. Only other option is an 37-inch Poloriod for $1000, but it's quite shitty performance wise.

    ^Thansk as well. Comes in handy when you want to put stoptazmo as your homepage and demonoid as well.

    Stoptazmo is pretty useless as a homepage though.
