I did buy a core i5 used PC in a garage sale over a month ago for 20 bucks. It has no HD, needs special monitor cable
so this is in the backburner*.

Jailbreaking the tablet is also too geeky for me at this point. Rather just sketch more.

I was feeling quite low few days ago. Got bugs in new place already, others dumping junk outsides, so have to clean and get this place treated by exterminator. So to help my mood, I got a few DVDs from a local thrift shop for a buck each, mostly cartoons and watched Simpson`s, family guy etc., Each DVD is a buck. The old iMac I have works perfect for this. One episode helps me a lot to gain fresh positive perspective. At this rate, few months to a few years down the road I might get another old PC when I am ready for it. Will be offline tho.

I also got an old RCA CD player, the sound is very good, but the radio works very poorly, even local AM station that is strong and popular sounds like an ICBM missile launched from Russia Nuclear Submarine to my Apt. At 10 bucks this is ok, will use it as long as it lasts.

If a tablet PC can be connected to external monitor then this is quite helpful.

Here the Library network is very good, one can borrow upto 15 books including 10 DVDs at a time.
There is also free net at library. When the Government supports offline life, then it is priceless.

I tried to connect my Tablet PC to my TV via USB cable and it failed. The TV doesn`t get signal from the Tablet.
