Default fun factoid for the day

ok, maybe not so much fun. a 21" Intergraph CRT monitor, which incidently weights approximately 65lbs will just barely fit in the passenger side seat of a 2001 Miata if turned to lie upon its side.

<-- just won an auction this morning. $7.00 for a 21" monitor.

michigan, and oakland county surplus, and/or retired inventory online auctions.

I'm not even sure it works yet. but for $7.00 I'm not too worried about it.

by the way, if you check out the other auctions there for oakland county monitors - those cornerstone models are trouble - they were purchased for the county's friend of the court document imaging system/conversion and are reportedly very picky about which video cards they work with. (or so I've been told by a tech in the "cage" at Oakland County's IT Shop)

Nice. I'm already afraid that this thing is going to be overkill for the desk at home. But, I'm still using a 15" Sony Vivitron circa 1998 on the home box. Oh, and my drive was shorter :tonka: I work about 2 miles from the materials management building, and had a meeting over there late this morning anyway. :)

I've got a brand new 16" HP CRT monitor sitting in a closet at home.
.. it just came with my new computer and I already had a 19" flatscreen.

bad news. it's worth somewhat less than $7.00
