That's the signpost up ahead

Speaking of the Twilight Zone a few questions down, from where came the New Year's Eve marathon tradition? I know SyFy (ugh) has it now, but I believe I remember watching it on WPIX way back when. That may have been 4th of July, though. Anyone know it's origins or what year it started?

I would like a schmoopy new years eve please

My partner and I want to make New Years Eve a special night. We're both in our 30's and the appeal of doing a rowdy alcohol soaked party blowout is wearing off, so instead we're aiming for classy and romantic, just the two of us. What should we do to make it feel more like a vacation rather than a staycation, and what should we do to make the night extra special? We're looking to maximize the romantic schmultz. [more inside]

How do I watch the ball drop without a TV?

I am throwing a small New Year's Eve party, and would like to be able to show the ball dropping in Times Square -- and optionally more of the programing around that moment -- despite not having a television signal into my home. I've a large LCD monitor (42"), a laptop with an HDMI input into said TV, a Windows PC, and an XBox 360. What's the best way to go about setting something up for my guests and I to watch?
