I don't watch TV much, if ever, nowadays, but when I was a kid I did. I have very fond memories of Ultraman and H.R. Pufnstuf and The Muppet Show and The Smothers Brothers, among others. I watched Land of the Lost (ssss! sleestacks!), Lost in Space, The Electric Company and Sesame Street and Zoom, and I was totally in love with Michael Landon and Bill Bixby. And I am totally dating myself with this paragraph, aren't I? Hrm. Oh well, too late now. Anyway, I don't remember a damn thing about Zoom except for learning how to speak Ubbi Dubbi.
Can't read this next paragraph? Copy and paste it into the Ubbi Dubbi Translator!

If YOU have an online journal and work a lot on the computer (maintaining websites, editing various projects, reading/writing on blogs), and your HUSBAND has a photoblog and works a lot on the computer (editing photos, reading/writing on forums, etc.) and YOUR CHILDREN are getting online journals and, well...playing a lot on the computer, how many computers do you think your household needs? Two is beginning to feel like it's not enough. I can remember when people who had televisions in every room were considered a bit over-the-top or rich, whichever. Now, having more than one television is not at all unusual. Is one computer each what we are heading for?
