Computer woes
I have spent the morning crawling round under my desk and my husband's desk, battling dust bunnies and connecting and reconnecting computer monitors.

My monitor, which had been slightly stripy in the top left corner for a couple of days, died this morning. First I tried to use the one from G's second computer, but after untangling the cables from his set-up and hauling it upstairs, it turned out the connectors were different. I am therefore currently borrowing the monitor off his main computer while he's out enjoying the sunshine having a long walk. I have ordered a new monitor, but now all my plans to work in the garden have to be put on hold while I push on with as much important work as possible before he wants his monitor back later. I'm hoping Ye Ancient Laptop will cope with social online stuff, but if I'm quieter than usual, you know why.

Sounds like a frustrating morning! At least it went quickly rather than leaving you living with something sub-par for months?

It might have been nice to have a little more warning than the top left-hand corner going a bit blurred and stripy for a day or two. I could have bought a new one in a bit less of a panic, but I've had a text claiming that the new monitor (identical to the old one) will be delivered tomorrow. I live in hope!

I hope you can get a new monitor soon, it is so hard to share these computers!
