    I have a new(ish) laptop that I would like to connect to my old TV. The laptop has an HDMI port and the TV has RCA and SCART inputs. Now, from what I understand, my best option is to get an HDMI to RCA converter and plug an HDMI cable into my laptop and into one end of this converter, and an RCA cable into the other end of the converter and into my TV. Is this correct?

    I saw there are also cables with an HDMI plug on one end and the three red/white/yellow RCA plugs on the other. But I think I can't use one of these cables in this case because they don't "convert" the signal.

    I don't really know much about these things, so I'd like to hear some opinions from more tech-savvy people. Am I making any sense at all? Are there any other other options that may be better?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Yup that should be right. There are also HDMI to SCART converters as well. I've never used either before but I have a feeling that HDMI to SCART might be better than RCA. Maybe others can comment on this!

    Yup, problem is that older tvs only work with analog signals, so having an HDMI plug on one end and RCAs on the other doesn't convert the digital signal to analog at all, which is why the converter devices are needed.

    You got this!

    Thanks! I checked some prices on HDMI to SCART converters, but it seems they're generally about twice as expensive as HDMI to RCA converters (probably because they're better, I guess). Since this is just a small, simple "project" (and since I'm poor :P), I'd rather not spend too much on it, so I guess I'll just go with the HDMI to RCA option. I'm not someone who really cares all that much about high video quality anyway.

    Thanks for the input :)

    I was just talking to someone about this a few days ago. It depends on whether them not doing their job will result in you doing their work for them or not. In that case, someone, let's call her Judy, was doing absolutely nothing at a storefront type of job, and x amount of tasks needed to be done before closure, so my friend ended up doing most of the work while Judy did nothing.

    The solutions we came up with were three:
    1. Kindly suggest to Judy that they split the tasks equally each day
    2. My friend does only half of the work, leaves the rest to Judy, and lets her deal with the consequences when other employees or the manager finds half the work not done the next day
    3. Have a calm and collected chat with the manager and ask that they remind each employee to do their job without naming names

    I've been looking for a song for several months with no luck. The only lyrics I remember are "Jack we want you back" or something sounding similar. It was a very uptempo song that seemed jazzy.

    Was the term "facebook" used even a little bit before the site launched for anything? I'm watching a show and one of the characters mentions a "face book" which is a book with pictures and info on everyone at their school. And the episode this is in came out in 2000, 4 years before the site launched.

    Apparently that's where Zuckerberg even got the idea from.

    Huh, I really should have found that page. I would have thought it would have been mentioned in the article about Facebook on Wikipedia but I didn't see anything about it while skimming the page.

    my hard drive fell off a table and as a result it started making squeaky noises and eventually stopped working entirely.
    i've read online that this happens when its needle gets damaged and stops reading. now my question is: can i somehow replace its needle with another one? i can buy a 20 giga hdd and take it from it.
    the stuff on it are very very important to me, i have to recover it. i opened it up and it seems the discs are not damaged at all, so is there any hope?
