Byte: Why didn't I think of this before?

I was chatting earlier with my chum Neal, about his plans to hook up his Spectrum to his big screen LCD TV, when I suddenly had a bit of a brainstorm. My own LCD TV, all thirty-two inches of widescreen goodness of it, has a VGA port. And my laptop has a DVI port to hook up to an external monitor... I think you can see where this is going.

Now, since I happen to have bought a new monitor for my desktop PC in the last week or two, I had a spare VGA cable lurking around the house, plus a DVI-to-VGA dongle, which got made redundant, since I now use a DVI-only cable to hook up my PC to my monitor. So five minutes of fiddling later... and I've got my laptop hooked up to the TV and I'm playing WoW.
