I wasn't there five minutes, when I found myself handing over my credit card to buy a refurbished HP 21" Trinitron monitor. I mean, it was a steal! It was $139 plus tax, and the guy didn't even hit me with a credit card surcharge. A couple more minutes later, I was wheeling a cart with my precious on it up the ramp and out to the parking lot. Sigh...
I did get a hard drive, a 30GB Maxtor 7200 rpm for $63, from the same guy I get all my drives from. Plus I picked up some assorted doodads, but no software and no scanner. Restraint R Us.
The monitor is huge. Speedy currently has a very nice 19" ViewSonic short-back monitor, but that's the machine that's on my big desk, so I might put the new monitor there for the time being, where there's enough room for it. Flash does need a new monitor, as one of the color guns in the picture tubes keeps clicking in and out, but since right now it's on a really narrow desk, the big monitor won't fit.
What I'll do eventually, is throw the DVD drive and an ATI All-in-Wonder video card into Flash, put Flash and the big monitor in the back room, and use it as the world's most expensive television, now with internet access and games!
