Hmm. It looks like at some point during the night, one of my CRTs has died. The magic smoke hasn't escaped (which is a Good Thing), but it refuses to show any signs of being switched on. I'm slightly peeved as it's the nice Trinitron tube that's died, but then again I do also have a 17" HP hooked up to this computer, so it's no more than annoying.

That's a bit of a shame. Go on, use it as a reason to go dual 19inch TFT's.....

Unfortuantly, dual 19" TFTs require a large amount of that strange substance known as "money", of which I don't think I have enough spare to splash out for. Especially given that I'll want something good quality to replace it.

I appreciate it's just rained, but have you considered somewhere like Pevensey skip for a new monitor? On a wednesday they can even be delivered free of charge. Which makes the whole things free, assuming you can work out the problem and solve it. You won't get anything that's all that good, but you'll get what you pay for
