When technology goes kablooey...

Hi all my blog-mates....

My PC monitor quit on me and I'm trying to get another one I can live with.  My original monitor was a 19" flat screen that was more-or-less square; I'm from the old school so that suited me just fine. 

Got a new one from Best Buy yesterday - 23" wide-screen - couldn't stand it after an hour, everything was so BIG so I took it back this morning.

Got another one - 18.5" wide screen - can't stand it , can't get it adjusted and it's too small anyway so I'll have to take it back on Monday.  Today is Caribbean celebration day which means some streets are closed, AND they're repaving some roads in my area, so nothing is gonna make me go back out there today ... not in this traffic.

This time I'll try a 21" - I'm told the stores only carry those wide-screen monsters so I'll have to try and adjust the settings and live with it.

So til then, I'll be offline - thank goodness Best Buy dropped their ridiculous restocking fee.  Have a great weekend.



  1. Wish I lived closer to you. I have a flat screen (square) from my Gateway computer that I had to put down a few months ago. Its a 20 inch I think. My new computer is a touch screen and it's 23 inch wide screen. It took some getting used to but now I like it.

  2. I had purchased a small 19" TV for my guest bedroom and then my monitor died. The TV can double as a monitor and it is working great. It was an adjustment to see the wide screen, but now my year old lap top has the same shape so a square one looks funny to me now.

  3. Isn't it funny how we get used to certain shapes/sizes...and then technology messes with it!! Dang it!
