~# █  Who says a 1983 TV is garbage? (full article)

I was about to throw out my first 13" colour TV that I had when I was a young'n. I couldn't quite let go, and decided that I should chop it up and revive it to something that could be used today. I then put a Micro-ITX PC inside, complete with everything that you'd need.
