Saving grace

I (finally) got my big-screen TV last week. I had hoped to have an over-the-air antenna attached to it so that I could watch HD without having to engage my evil Rogers cable. But it was not to be. I tried attaching one of my hard-drive docks to the USB port on the TV but it didn't recognize it. So today I bought a 64GB Lexar flash drive from FutureShop and it saw that just fine: The saving grace! It worked so well that I just ordered two more (128GB each) flash drives from Amazon. The second movie I watched was Lola rennt (1998), at a paltry 368 lines of resolution — but at least the subtitle file had been finely honed by yours truly. The picture shows a scene from the first movie that I watched.
