Computer Monitor

I replaced my deceased monitor with a new state-of-the-art Acer B286HK high definition wide screen. It is a 28 inch diagonal UHD 4K2K type with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. That’s a lot of pixels!

The monitor is the lowest cost 4K monitor I could find on today’s market. I actually found it on sale at a local Micro Center computer store in Dallas at $120 less than I could find it on any of the internet suppliers. It was a limited time price so I had to act before the sale was over. I had three days remaining.

I am completely satisfied […] Continue reading » Computer Monitor

Ode to a Broken Window

Not just broken, it’s dead. It my 24 inch flat screen 244T Samsung monitor. Goodbye old tool, you served me well. One of the only electronic devices in my home office that survived the lightning strike on June 29, 2009. Seven more years isn’t too bad.

The monitor was born… err… made in January 2006 so it is just over 10 years old. It was one of the best in its day but as anything electronic, there have been a lot of technology improvements. But still it provided a first class picture for my needs for a decade. After all, it’s just […] Continue reading » Ode to a Broken Window

Magic of RSS

I may not have explained this. The column on the right of this page is titled “More Posts”. Located here are four other blog/websites where I express my thoughts and describe what I am doing. Ramblin’ Dan may look like it isn’t being attended but that lack of action usually indicates I am off publishing in these other areas.

Actually there are several more blog/websites I maintain that are not on this short list.

I only list the last five articles from each site I have posted here. The top item in each list is the most recent article for that site. These are RSS (Really Simple Syndication) […] Continue reading » Magic of RSS

Freedom Lessons from TEDEX

I have been doing some posting in the TEDEX forums. It seems no one is paying attention these days but there is no way I can tell for sure. Internet security issues require a totally private membership so it is hard for sincere new blood to contribute. TEDEX seems to be a closed society. That was and is not my intent.

Thankfully, real people still email me directly. The private correspondence would make good fodder for the forums or one of my blogs but I respect their privacy.

It is just too bad that my clean open TEDEX forums are pretty much a thing of the past. The […] Continue reading » Freedom Lessons from TEDEX
