New monitor

Last night, my monitor broke down. It's an old 17" CRT monitor (good enough for the things I do at home with my machine), and apparently age caught up with it. We have another (old) 17" CRT standing by, so I had planned to swap these two out.

But this morning I found a mail from our systems guy that there were 17" and 19" CRT monitors available to people who wanted them -- we have been getting LCD monitors in recent weeks. Coincidentally, I went to work by car because of the heavy rain. It was as if it was planned!

So now I am typing this using my new 19" CRT monitor. It's black. :)
