Our monitor was making funny noises and doing strange things, I expected it to shoot flames or explode at any given time this morning. It is at least 6 years old so we have gotten good use out if it. It's about 2 feet square, was made long before flat screens.
Off to Futureshop. Home again with a 20 inch flat wide screen monitor, a new scanner(because our other one was kicking the bucket and was about 8 years old), and a pile of Cannon photo paper because it was buy one and get one free.
I cannot believe how much room we have on the desk with the flat screen. More room for crap on my desk.
