Thanks Microsoft!


Thanks Microsoft!

So my monitor from the GDC Keynote arrived today. WOO!

Yes, J. Allard from MS came out and spoke to everyone about what MS WANTS to do - they don't have anything done yet, but they want us to all commit to it. And to prove how much we should love MS, they gave away $1 million dollars in HD TV's. That's marketing muscle. :)

So, I can't complain too much, since I won. I recieved it today and set it up. Wow, it's big.

And yes, that's City of Heroes on the screen. :) I mean, I HAD to test it out... right?

If you find you're having headaches from using that big and clear a screen -- do let us know, we might be willing to take it off your hands and give you a nice 19" flat screen crt.

Thank so much. I'm touched at your concern for my well-being. ;)

I have had to move the thing to the back of the desk in order to not feel like I was in the front row of a movie theater... but other than that, so far I'm doing fine. :)

That's actually what I found when I bought the 19" in 2001... I ended up letting Douglas talk me out of it because it really was too big for my desk -- I couldn't get it back far enough... with a none crt - you have less of a depth issue.

Anyway -- I just wanted you to know that your health was important to many people and we'd do what we could to help :)

Wow. What's the resolution on that thing?
