Hi. My computer monitor died last week. The screen goes black a minute or two after being turned on, then stays black until I flip it off and on.
I’ve borrowed my girlfriend’s monitor, but it’s old and decrepit and pretty much ready to disintegrate. Basically the contrast is permanently set to ‘burnt out’, so staring at it for more than a minute is like staring into the sun. Actually it’s kind of like “Pitch Black”, the Vin Diesel movie where everything is just bleached out.
I can barely see what I’m typing right now, and this is black font on white background. The worst thing, however, are the photos. I have a lot of photos from the past couple of weeks, and I have no idea of their quality. That drives me freaking nuts.
I’ve found a decent yet cheap monitor at our local Staples, so now I just have to wait until I have the cash.
Until then I’ll be taking a little break from Salted. I have picked up my notebook again, and I have a decent pen, so I am still writing about this stuff.
Thanks for offering me whatever patience you have left.
