What I was getting at, GEM, is that NEW 17" monitors like that are on sale at the Expo Center this weekend for 47 bux. It doesn't make sense to ship something of that age, bulk and weight to florida because the difference in price of shipping and a new one is so small it'd be better to get a new one. The chances of something like that getting damaged in transit by rough handling these days is high. Actually, send it UPS and hope it does get damaged. They automatically insure things for up tp 200 bux and that would make a handsome down payment on a new LCD monitor. Personally, I wouldn't own, and don't have anymore, CRT Monitors.
BTW: I don't care what you do with it, GEM, and gave it to you, that and the hard disk, for you to do what you want with them and am glad you got some usage out of them before their retirement.
I've got so much computer stuff I don't use anymore, hardware and software, George, that I'm going to park a Backhoe outside the window and dump bucketfuls into the hungry shovel for easy transit to the dumpster. I just turned to my right and am looking 6 big plastic boxes full of stuff that's making a b-line right out the window as soon as the weather warms up a little. If they only made laptops as powerful as desktops, I'd use them exclusvely but their hard drives are so small and slow and are too expensive for what they deliver.
I've fot a nice AMD 1100 with "the motherboard of it's time" [think it'll do raid] in a nice max tower case that will be first to go after I find out if the powersupply can be used in the new colored acrylic case i've ordered.
I've got tons of older memory just laying around. pre-PC-100 or even maybe a few PC-100 and/or PC-133 sticks that are obsolete because of DDR memory.
I've got a laser printer that was a real workhorse before I got the HP-4050. It's big and heavy by today's standards, but it earned its keep and is now taking up valuable realestate. The next time I clean out this PC shack, that one's headed for the dumpster too.
Always with an even keel.
