Default OT: Monitor size


For the last month I've had my tower downstairs on the dining room table. I
had to add a USB hub PCI card, plus we went broadband wireless. I was using
our old 17" monitor that we got with our first computer. (My regular monitor
is a 19".)

Well, we're giving the old computer to a friend so I needed the table to do
some work on it. I finally took my system upstairs. (I had promised Keith
I'd do it last Sunday but that just didn't happen.) This is the first I've
seen the net on my bigger screen. I forgot how **BIG** it is.

Sigh - life is good!

Yeah, JoAnn, that old adage about stereo systems (buy the best speakers you can afford because that's where you interface with the system) applies just as much to computers:

Buy the best monitor, keyboard, and mouse you can afford, because that is what you see, hear, and touch all day long.

I don't use my PC much (mostly moving over to Macs now), but the old monitor was way too bulky. So I bought a cheapie (and I do mean cheapie) 17" LCD monitor for the PC. It looks OK by itself, but when placed next to my PowerBook laptop, it has this horrid green cast that no amount of adjusting can get rid of. Ick. Maybe I should point it out my window on Halloween. Give the kids a good scare.

Ray, my parents always told me little green men came from Mars.
Did you?

I don't think so. You see, I was very young when I was born, I don't fully remember the event. Let
me grab of couple of Duracell sandwiches and I'll get back to you, for now my eyes aren't glowing
enough and I can't read my screen anymore...

LOL !

Ray, living close to a nuclear plant makes you glow in the dark, Duracell sandwiches don't.

LOL too!

Oh no it doesn't! I live about half way between two nuclear power plants.
One of them is the now famous Three Mile Island. I do NOT glow in the dark.
(We don't talk about the mutant veggies though.)
