ok anons when I'm rich I will start new production of CRTs. Also send me some cash to bet on stock options if I make it big and win 100 million you will all get a free sample of the first batch of CRTs.
really though, what would it take to produce one?
the control circuitry would not be easy but it's the most simple part. the hard part is the actual coils and the picture tube, how would one even start?
I'd stick with 7, you'll probably have problems installing but once you're past that it's pretty much smooth sailing. Get your updates and then remove the telemetry ones, etc.
this is pretty much the best way to go on slow boards. Imagine having a computer club with only 20 people and monthly meetings, then at every meeting booking 15 different rooms, one for a specific topic. It won't work unless your club has daily meetings and 100+ people. You'd just have a single room in which multiple conversations can still occur, yet fosters more interaction overall.
