Catch-159.60

I'm ordering a 19'' LCD monitor. This 19'' CRT is taking up my whole computer table. I'll give it to my mother whos POS 19'' is on the fritz. Viewsonic. Wall-mountable, even. Word.

And I got my Texas license plates (christ, you need two in this state). Cost me $160 in cash. I got tx inspection for lunch and forgot to tell the guy not to remove my new LA inspection sticker (oops). To pay by check for the registration (which I'm only getting so I can get a TX drivers license to save my hassle of skipping work to take my motorcycle test in Lake Charles) you need a _TX drivers license_... I should have signed my name Major Major Major Major. Looks like carrying that hundred dollar bill in my wallet finally paid off.

Can I have the CRT? This little crappy 15" isn't cutting it for me anymore...

Besides... I want to be running WinXP at 16x12, if you know what I mean.

Re:
I'm giving this one to her to save her from having to buy a brand-new 19". If I gave it to you she'd be in the hole for a couple hundred.

But I'll ask her if she still wants it; if she has already bought one, then okay we'll talk.


I thought you were using your laptop screen, anyway. You'd lug a 49.5-pound CRT around just for the resolution?

*chuckles and shakes his head* No... I meant for my desktop...

But then again, I would be the coolest geek in a coffeeshop if I did that...

Re:
Then you could set up a big 5.1 stack and maybe a scanner/printer and a big tower on the side.

As long as you kept ordering their $5 starbucks I bet they wouldn't say anything.
