TV has its use

I thought I'd get rid of my old TV! Until I realised a TV is a monitor. I sometimes do computer work at home, on my laptop, and doing that I always miss the set-up I have at work, with two monitors. So I sourced a cable, and plugged the TV into the laptop. And it works! I now know why the TV was cheap; the image quality is not particularly high. I never noticed when it still was a TV. But well, it does a job! You can have more windows open without things getting in each other's way. And it's a logical step after repurposing a phone as a stereo! I'm happy with this set-up. What else can I use for something it wasn't intended for?
