Life Before Google?

How would I have known how to make this?
This is a device to fix the television screen by degaussing the mask.
Huh? Why on earth do you need this?
This is what you need when your child, the one I have mentioned before, decides to stick magnets on your television screen and ruins the picture quality, making all the colors off. This means Jeff is wearing a green shirt, Murray is all stripy, and this is simply NOT ACCEPTABLE to a two year old, who feels the need to voice her displeasure loudly and continuously until your ears bleed.
The thing that keeps this child alive is that you just know that someone somewhere on the internet has written about the exact same thing.
And when you search and find people selling expensive products to fix this problem you know that someone somewhere must have figured out an alternate solution.
And that someone somewhere will have written a web page about it.
Then instead of strangling said child, you can mentally compose a blog entry about it. Because if you can fix it, then it is humorous.
And it’s educational. “Gather ’round my children here is your science lesson for the week. Don’t say I never let you do cool science experiments.”
Read this if you are interested in a full technical explanation.
