It happened

My Monitor fried!

It happened just like I feared. I was online this AM cruising my favorite blogs and had just written ONE comment when ZAP! the screen went black except for this bright thin white line down the middle of the screen which shrunk down to a brilliant white pinpoint smack-dab in the middle of the screen when and with a POP!, it went out to black.

I can't swing over $200.00 buckaroos for a new monitor right now. What to do? Recycle.
I had kept the old Win 98 hardware for which we replaced the entire set up when we had to purchase the new XP edition after our last tower did the Fry/Pop dance.

So, I'm able to at least blog a bit but my eyes are going nuts here. The screen is much smaller than I had become used to and it is concave ... or is that convex?

Anyway ... I have a treat coming up in the next couple of weeks. Sooner if I can swing it.
But I can't say anything yet because it is a work in progress.
I can say, I'm nervous, excited and honored to be involved.

It will be a blog post . A special blog post. And I'm tres excited! *grin*

Hope you have a wonderful Monday everyone!

I am so sorry to hear about your friend monitor! At least you have a replacement, but I can understand how it would be hard on the eyes. Computers have come a long way in almost ten years. At least you had warning. :) I also have warning that the important fan in my tower is on the verging of going. While I have been told I am not in any necessary rush to fix it, the noise it makes is motivation in itself....

Sorry about your monitor and the adjustment you have to do with the old one. MOdern technologies just keeps spoiling us.

I can't wait to hear about your exciting news.

Have a good Monday.

Eww, sorry to hear your monitor gave the death dirge. I am glad you can still blog, though!
Can't wait to "hear" your suprise.
