Kelvin walked in yesterday and asked when was a good time to set up my new flat screen monitor. I was dumbfounded. Flat screen? For me? But I didn't ask for that? So confused. Anyway, turns out everyone in the building is getting them for whatever reason. He came and installed it while I was in my Dance Fitness class. Sadly, my first impressions are not good. Text looks more pixel-y and thinner and not as easy to read. Images seem fine, but since my computer is still primarily a word processor on steroids, not having text visually comfortable is a problem. Plus, it comes on a stand that doesn't allow up and down movement, and it sits atop my laptop docking station and is way too high. Harumph. I've got to be the only girl I know who would complain about getting a shiny new flat screen monitor, but really, my monitor is my window to my computer, and it's got to do a really good job at reproducing what I would see if I printed something or if I posted it to the web where others would see it. Plus, my docking station is the same footprint on my desk as my old monitor, so the new one's smaller footprint doesn't win anything for me. Can I have my old monster CRT back? Oh well. I'm sure I'll get used to this eventually.
