    Well, I got it and while the stand I bought with it was damaged in shipping and I have to wait on new parts, it's on the floor and working well anyway--looks great on componant DVD--tho I needa ndw DVD player as mine won't send Closed Captioning to any TV--and while SD on DISH isn't great, it's ok from my sofa.

    I'm a happy camper!

    Very nice! My cat, Gus, weighs in at a smooth 21#s (not a typo). Yell at him and he'll rip your lungs out!

    Heh. Slightly loves me--he'd never hurt me.

    Anyone else encounter a DVD player that won't send Closed Captioning to certain TVs? I tried a different DVD player, and it worked fine.

    As both a cat and dog owner, I swear that this is true. OK , I know that nobody "owns" a cat. :)

    As seen in a dog's diary:

    8am - Oh Boy! Dog food! My favorite!
    9am - Oh Boy! A car ride! My favorite
    10am - Oh Boy! A walk! My favorite!
    11am - Oh Boy! A car ride! My favorite!
    Noon - Oh Boy! The kids! My favorite!
    1pm - Oh Boy! The yard! My favorite!
    3pm - Oh Boy! The kids! My favorite!
    4pm - Oh Boy! Dog food! My favorite!
    5pm - Oh Boy! Mom! My favorite!
    7pm - Oh Boy! Playing ball! My favorite!
    9pm - Oh Boy! Sleeping in master's bed! My favorite!

    As seen in a cat's diary:

    Day 783 of my captivity...
    My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling
    objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while I am forced to eat dry
    cereal. The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of escape, and the
    mild satisfaction I get from ruining the occasional piece of furniture.

    Tomorrow I may eat another house plant. Today my attempt to kill
    My captors by weaving around their feet while they were walking
    Almost succeeded -- must try this at the top of the stairs.

    In an attempt to disgust and repulse these vile oppressors, I
    once again induced myself to vomit on their favorite chair -- must try
    this on their bed.

    Decapitated a mouse and brought them the headless body, in an
    Attempt to make them aware of what I am capable of, and to try to strike
    fear into their hearts. They only cooed and condescended about what a good
    little cat I was. Hmmm, not working according to plan.

    There was some sort of gathering of their accomplices. I was
    Placed in solitary throughout the event. However, I could hear the
    noise and smell the food. More importantly I overheard that my confinement
    was due to MY power of "allergies." Must learn what this is and how
    to use it to my advantage.

    I am convinced the other captives are flunkies and maybe
    snitches. The dog is routinely released and seems more than happy to
    return. He is obviously a half-wit. The bird on the other hand has got to be
    an informant, and speaks with them regularly. I am certain he
    reports my every move. Due to his current placement in the metal room, his
    safety is assured.

    But I can wait, it is only a matter of time...
