This week, my computer monitor decided to die. Well actually, it’s been trying to for a while, but finally decided to give up the ghost this week. I turned it on one day to discover that everything was now displayed in different shades of blue. For email, I can handle that, but there’s no way I could do most of the other tasks I usually do on the computer. . .like upgrading the software for my jewelry store. . .I needed to be able to see that everything was displaying correctly.
Well, one day, Stephen came home from work with a 19″ Dell monitor for me. The plant he was working at that day was just throwing it away – even though it works just fine! They gave him permission to take it home for me.
What an encouragement! It’s larger, has a higher resolution, and doesn’t make funny noises when you turn it on like my old one did. I love it! AND – it takes up less space on my desk, even though the screen is bigger than what I had. How neat is that?
Just for the record, my old monitor was also a Dell – I’ve had it for 10 years myself, and it was our family’s computer monitor before that. So it was really old. And the fact that it was moved back and forth from MI to FL 4 or 5 times when I was in college, back to MI when I graduated, then to SC when I married. . .and to IN and back after that. . .I think that old Dell monitor was a good monitor, don’t you? I told Stephen it sure makes me trust their products.
Just thought I’d share my bit of encouragement for the week!
