Taking Decent Photos of your CRT TV Screen

Recently I was prompted to try taking photos of the TV which currently serves as a monitor for my XT, because reasons (which may be made clearer in the future if I'm not lazy and/or distracted by other things).  After much trial and error, I think my current results provide an accurate representation of what's actually visible on the screen.

Finished migrating this blog from Blogspot/Blogger to my own domain.  Instead of a bloated, plodding, XHTML/JS-driven piece of crap hosted on a restrictive external service -- this is now a self-hosted, static site delivered straight to you without the need of a database or any client/server-side scripting (thanks go to Hugo for making it easy).  This means I get to control my own content, and you get a much leaner and meaner site. ...
