On Tuesday, August 19th from 12:45PM to 2PM at the Ypsilanti Senior Center, US Representative John Dingell and Brian Danza, Special Assistant from the US Department of Commerce / NTIA, will be giving a presentation on the upcoming transition for television signals going from analong to digital this coming February.
On February 17, 2009, analog televisions not connected to a converter will stop functioning as they will not be able to receive digital signals. The Federal government is providing $40 coupons that may be used towards the purchase of digital converter boxes. Each household is entitled to one coupon.
I would encourage everyone who is in the area tomorrow afternoon to take advantage of this opportunity.
As part of our preparation for the Heritage Festival Guitar Hero contest mentioned ad nauseum on these pages, we purchased one of those new-fangled digital televisions. Had the Representative mentioned something, we would have been more than happy to bring it out for the event and do a little Guitar Hero to warm up the crowd.
I’m just saying.
And you know, it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world to have this Friday either.
Just think it over. Guitar Hero goes with everything — even Mexican food.
