    well isn’t this ironic. I attempted to make a co-worker who felt guilty a big 50lbs crt was sitting on my desk. stated he was going to get me a new monitor, obviously a flat panel lcd.

    thursday evening for no particular purpose I brought this huge monitor I had in the basement up. apparently it weighs 92.3lbs. lugged it out to my car. obviously this was going to increase the guilt and get that new monitor quicker.

    it’s a Sony GDM-FW900. 24″ flat screen CRT that has a massive max resolution of 2048×1536 .. wasted all of thursday attempting to calibrate this spectical from 2002. could not for the life of me find the correct drivers for win 7 x64 .. had to figure things out otherwise I wouldn’t have one upped anyone with a horrid looking display on this expensive monitor from the past.
