    Every time I try to run a search, my results are skewed. Please help.

    Maybe my chair is just broken.

    Stick a folded piece of paper under your monitor, sheesh [​IMG]

    Kids these days, everything bothers them.

    Until you've seen a CRT with tilted pincusion keystone nonlinear distortion and a color shift and had to work on one, you ain't seen nothing.


    I miss those de-Gauss buttons on monitors [​IMG]

    Veho, I once magneted a friend's monitor when I was younger to show him how cool it was.
    Then I found out his monitor had no degauss.

    I had a problem with my monitor as well ( a 22" HP w2207h ).
    I was recommended by somebody to turn down the brightness because the default one was too bright and would hurt my eyes, so I did.
    But by turning it down about 50%, my eyes were actually struggling to read web pages, and I was getting tired and full of headache in a matter of half an hour, let alone long playing session at Bioshok 2 !
    So one day I decided to turn it up again, and my eyes stop to hurt almost immediately, as the improved contrast ( especially the familiar black text on white background ) was somehow easier on my eyes.
    I suspect that in the long run it wouldn't be very healthy for my eyes, but hey, a lot of things in life aren't healty but we can't leave without it !
