Well, last night I turned my monitor off just as I’ve done for years. This morning when I started things up, no monitor. Dead. I tried everything I could think of to get it to work. I tried unplugging the power, holding the power on button while plugging in the power. Nothing. It is an older monitor, so I’ve been sort of expecting it to die. So I go down to Best Buy, one of my favorite stores, and pick up a new monitor. Not just any monitor though. It’s a 25in. HP IPS LED monitor. Damn, this is sweet. Picture is better, and of course bigger than the 22in. that I had before. It was also $60 off and that helped too.
I got the monitors switched, and started the computer. A few things flash, and then the picture comes up. Boy, talk about pretty. And it’s so big. I’m seeing little things that I don’t remember seeing before. It’s nice and I’m pleased. This one is definitely a keeper.
It’s about time that I get back into the swing of things. I’ve been away for far too long. It wasn’t about lack of interest, but getting things back to normal after last years fiasco. I’m feeling pretty good now, and raring to go. I need to do a lot of updating to this machine and am going to start that soon. I’m going to update the OS as what I’m running right now is getting a bit long in the tooth. After that I’ll update the blog software and go from there. Hopefully that will put the spring back into my step and I’ll start blogging again.
