Post-Purim Ponderings

I had planned to update my journal last night, but LJ wasn't working. Go fig.
Karen got back Monday. Yay! Monica came into town and hung out for a bit. She also delivered this spiffy much-larger monitor for my viewing pleasure. Woo hoo!
Yesterday we picked ourselves up and went over to Harold & Becky's for their annual Purim seudah (banquet). We got there early to set up, which meant that we got first crack at the fine collection of liquor (mostly single-malt scotch). Much fun and amazement was had, due to this year's special guests: a bagpiper and a haggis. Kosher haggis!?! Yes, it's true. Karen had to leave early, sadly, due to needing to check on her dad's animals and head to her Tuesday night class. There was too much food, and I was plenty tired due to overeating and liquor-indulging. I stayed to help clean up for a while, but when our hosts were asleep I figured it was safe to bug out myself. I came back here and had a relaxing and nonproductive evening watching an online chat about magazine publishing. (Okay, so it wasn't that exciting, but I enjoyed myself.)
And now I need to be off to work, so I bid you all to have an excellent day!

Glad to hear it's working fine. I always get nervous when I have to transport electronics without the original packaging. (Not that this happens much, but still...)

Re: monitor
Everything seems fine. It also has a quick return from sleep mode, which my last two monitors lacked...I hated having to wait 10 seconds to see the screen. This one blinks on almost instantaneously. Woo hoo! 8^) -Happy Seth

Re: monitor
Yeah, my new one is slower with that; I got so used to the fast recovery time that I forgot that it's not the norm. :-)

I guess technically that monitor probably came with a manual; if you think this is at all relevant let me know and I'll look for it. I doubt it said anything we don't both already know, though. Maybe it mentioned this feature, which you've discovered on your own. Hardware manuals tend to have a high "well, duh!" factor, in my experience, coupled with an absence of information that would actually be news. :-)

Re: monitor
It's probably not relevant. If I have any burning questions, I shall contact you for technical support. 8^) Don't think it's likely, tho. Hearty thanks once more! I am very pleased.
