I hear Thomas say "Wow, that's bright."


I look over and there's a VERY bright blue line at the bottom of his screen. THEN I smell the unmistakable odor of the Magic Blue Smoke escaping.


One very dead monitor.


I took it to UNI to recycle (and paid $10, sigh).



And then bought myself this spiffy new LCD monitor. (Thomas gets my old CRT.)


This... this is nice. Why didn't I get one of these before?

Oh man I've had that happen. It sucks! But then it was an 8yr old CRT.

The new one's a spiffy 19" SAmsung Syncmaster 906BW. Me like verrrry much!!!

(And also doesn't weigh a fricken TON like the old one did.)

I love flatscreens, but I hate cleaning crayon off of them. Which is why most of mine are still CRTs.

You didn't get a LCD monitor before because you are a great Mother.
You buy new stuff for your son and not yourself. If you could have
made a LCD monitor on a sewing machine you would have done so. I can
picture it now a lace up whale bone computer monitor.
