The old CRT monitor I've had since my old Performa (cira 1996/7) finally died today. It was showing signs of dying for the last couple of months but it finally kicked the bucket this afternoon. It's amazing the monitor lasted this long, I'm willing to bet the next monitor I'll buy won't last that long. Looks like I'm gonna have to take a trip down to the local computer store to fix this slight inconvenience. I'm glad I have the laptop to turn to when my computer is out of commission.
