As long as there are more than 2 people on a forum, there will be disputes and thats part of the fun.
Some folks buy their kids a Maybach, or and let them eat fries in the Lambo..
Others dont' let people fart in their car (I know one person that had this rule)..
So a person's values converge on things in life.
For me - its "manage the weaknesses immediately, then enjoy".
So for new things, part of my excitement is reading up on its weaknesses and then remediating them. It's a man-machine thing, and also its how I get to know and take care of the new thing - be it an old Benz, Kitchen Aid mixer, phone, and now a 59" plasma..
So for our case ( and 2 kids ) - lets see - replace a CRT brick with a large sensitive fragile $1000+ plate of thin glass. Then expect the kids ( and any of their visiting friends ) to not make a mistake around it.
First thing my 2.5yo hopping jumping little boy said is "ipad - ipad" and went and touched it - the plaz was out of the box what - 5 minutes??
And he has appmates - you know - those cars that are put ON the surface and scraped around the ipad that has much stronger glass.
Just like somegeek, doing the plexiglas thing - until then I unfolded the base of the box and tucked in the TV last night - duct taped the cardboard to the TV.
So last summer at a brother-in-law's, kids were playing swords with the vacuum cleaner tubes - they went upstairs to the playroom that has a large Bravia.. I went up a few minutes later - a kid was banging on the Bravia with the tube - I assume enjoying all the flickering rainbow colors that were on the screen.
Then my brother recently lost one to a kid with a wiimote.
Its a no brainer for me. I don't care if the PQ is affected, I still want a P after 3 years..
