I just got home from work. I work at a retail store, and it was chaos. Bread, batteries, and water were scarce, and people sure bought a lot of chicken in preparation for a storm that could potentially knock out power... Anyways, we're expected to get a good 30 inches of snow in my area, which is supposed to be in the heart of the storm. A state of emergency has already been declared for midnight, meaning no cars on the road.
I'm hunkering down. I've got my Vita and 3DS charged up, I still have A Song of Ice and Fire books to read, and a stack of this month's comics to read too so I've got plenty to do. If I somehow lose power, which I doubt since I rarely do in storms, you'll know why I might not be appearing for a small stretch of time.
That they're pulling a Crisis on Infinite Earths and basically smashing their universes into each other to form one singular universe. I don't know how that'll work considering a new universe forms for every major or minor event in Marvel Comics but whatever. They can no longer trash-talk DC for the New 52 and they can no longer scoff at the rumors and fans that were thinking that they were gonna reboot the universe. Because they are.
So for whatever reason, the color white is excruciatingly bright on my TV, but only when I'm playing video games. For a darker game that doesn't use much white, it's practically unnoticeable, but if I'm playing with, say, my Wii, it's almost unbearable trying to see things. And it's only with the color white and only when I'm playing a game. The picture for regular viewing is fine.
I actually had a problem just like this with my older TV but I managed to fix it when I changed the voltage settings on my converter box, which I was using because the TV I had at the time didn't have any outputs for game consoles or DVD players.
Any ideas what might be happening and how to fix it? And before you say it, no, it doesn't help changing the brightness, it only makes the entire picture look more dim.
I'd like to give a warm happy birthday greeting to one of our most revered members: A Mr. bolingerjhon. Though some of you may not have heard of him, he performs a very powerful service to us Denizens by helping us compare car rental rates. Ah, I remember when he joined back in October 2010. He was a man of few words. None, in fact. But it says a lot about a man's character that he can be so important with no posts to his name. He's been an integral part of our community for years now, even if he hasn't been around since October 2010.
So I raise a glass to you bolingerjhon. You are truly missed around here....
