Re Hogging the Television

"....hearing stories of younger users hogging the family television with their latest and greatest software creations."

Lovely to hear, but I reduce such problems by running a Pi 4x4 behind both of our TV's (kitchen and lounge) and politely moving aside when live TV is in demand and just quietly carry on doing what I was doing by VNCing into the Pi from my Chromebook.

Super flexible, maintains domestic harmony and leaves my desktop PC quietly gathering dust [quiet as it's mostly 'off' these days].

And, btw, running the /root partition from a USB3 240GB SSD makes it even more able to sideline my PC ;-)

Cheers Eben...
