I'm currently watching House in HD widescreen on one monitor while typing this on the other. I think this qualifies me as a technogeek in at least some small measure.
And yes, it does look better in HD. I'm trying to figure out if the fat guy is an incredibly good makeup job or if he's actually that fat. I'm thinking the second one because of the way he moves... if that's makeup, both the actor and the makeup team deserve serious awards.
The reason I'm watching TV is because Mom called to jabber for an hour so I have yet to do any work.
