Yesterday I had one of those days where things keep going wrong.. mainly technical things holding me up etc.. to top it all, in the evening my 6yr old monitor decided to pack up so today I made a reluctant trip to PC world where I reluctantly spent money I couldn't afford. It wouldn't have been so bad if I didn't have to stand around waiting for 15 mins until I was informed the item I'd ordered was only left as a display item and 'Do you want us to box one up for you ?' Well, yes please I would... did it take 15 mins to ask me that ??

Oh well... at least I now got a 20 inch high res monitor instead of my Gameboy sized one I had previously, although it did serve me well smile.gif

P.S. The first thing I did when I got up this morning was stub my toe.. dry.gif

Sorry to hear your trouble with the monitor. On the other hand, monitor is IMO most important part of the computer system so its very good to upgrade. Also there is more workspace on the big monitors these days. I'm pretty sure I lost my "eyes" on one bad CRT monitor back in the days.

I agree with Bogdan - a good monitor can make a huge difference, I intend on getting a BIG one for myself soon enough biggrin.gif

Sorry you had to go through that mate sad.gif I know what it feels like. I bought a new laptop on the 6th of March and it crashed on the 25th of March smile.gif imagine how that felt. I called the dealer and I was mad as a bull, but it took 21 days for them to fix it.. I issued a complain to replace it but, no chance.. Well, at least now it's working smile.gif

funny enough i used to work for pc world fixing computers.. I left a week after techguys changed there name to KnowHow or should i say Don't KnowHow.. there customer care was set to improve with the name change and if they was wearing a KnowHow band, they will have had the KnowHow customer care training, just like i did.

From what i see here nothings changed in customer care, but just the name has.

Sorry you had been treated that way.... I'm glad i left smile.gif

Hey now! smile.gif After much soul searching I actually trimmed back my rig! I am using a 27 inch imac as my primary and my 42 inch HD set as a second head so just two! smile.gif

But I am still using three heads at the office. The more the merrier!

P.S. Congrats on your new monitor Ben!
