Just wanted to say that we got a great deal on a new computer and LCD monitor this weekend....a friend is developing a computer business on the side and is quite the shark when it comes to hunting down good deals. Plus, he's a linux guy, so we no longer are dependent on Windows and the price was lower than it might otherwise be.
To test out the visual improvement with our new "machine", my first visit was this forum. I can't believe the difference the new flat panel monitor makes over the standard CRT we replaced. The new monitor is a 17" widescreen 1440x900 resolution by emachines. I'm sure it's not topnotch but it's beyond good enough for me. Talk about eye candy....everyone's creative works here look that much more alive and detailed....now it's going to take even more willpower to not check up with the gallery thread more than three times a day (that's my goal...three times and no more than three times.) Hah!
