Good bye back breaker

It is 2006 and Iโ€™ve finally made the jump from a CRT monitor to a LCD monitor. I bought a ViewSonic VX922. Itโ€™s pretty sweet. Obviously you immediately notice the space youโ€™re saving. I find the picture bright and colours crisp. Iโ€™ve played a few games and noticed no ghosting at allโ€ฆ with a 2ms refresh time itโ€™s not surprising. Apparently CRTs are no longer being manufacturedโ€ฆ Huh. Anyway, so far very happy with the monitor.

I got MYSQL working on my home web serverโ€ฆ the new installer is wonderfulโ€ฆ you get MYSQL up and running in minutes. Iโ€™ve already got a table set up and Iโ€™m reading data with PHP. Ahh joy.

Looked like Brampton was going to get hammer with a huge storm this eveningโ€ฆ but it simply blew throughโ€ฆ odd.
