Then this morning I had an extra 15 minutes before work, so I unhooked the shitty monitor, took it away, then unhooked the monitor from the computer in my room, brought it out here, and hooked it up.
W00t, I'm a geek.
But now I have a working computer. Which is handy.
AND TONIGHT!!!! POWERBOOK TIME!!!! Isn't it pretty?
One problem. Maybe this monitor is just old, but everything is rather blurry. I tried switching the resolution to something bigger, but I personally can't stand that huge of a screen. So I dunno.
Oh, and per suggestion of Linz, I'm buying my mother a present. Something really nice. I don't know what yet...but I might venture to the Amish Furniture Shoppe.
