The monitor on my work computer died. I now have a temporary replacement while we get mine fixed/replaced.|
Lord, I had forgotten how much I loathe CRTs.
This one is refreshing at about 65 hz and the flicker makes me want to hurl. So four workdays before the big deployment of my product, I'm spending time trying to drop the screen resolution on my monitor so it'll refresh faster. Isn't it always the way?
Update! I have gotten it to behave. I think the linux gremlins disapprove of these fancy newfangled graphical tools for setting system properties. They wanted me to edit the config file by hand before they'd let it work properly.
