Weather: Fall is here for sure now. Leaves are falling and temps are dropping into the 30′s and 40′s at night. Oh, and the St. Louis Cardinals are playing in the World Series again!
Monitors: I was in panic mode this morning when I came into the office and one of the two monitors on my computer was dark. Normally I have seven or eight different windows open on my system most of the time (4 blogging, a couple of Excel, a browser, and Snagit [screen capture and editing software] and maybe something else). These are placed at various places over both screens and I can click on any to activate that one and work with it. So with one screen out I couldn’t access the windows on that monitor. So I rebooted and probably lost a couple things I didn’t save last night but the screen was still dark. I swapped out the cables to see if I could tell if it was the monitor or the graphic card in the computer. It was the monitor. I turned it off and on a couple of times and I was able to see a faint image for a moment when I turned it on for just a few seconds. So I did it a couple more times and the image stayed a bit longer and I was going to drag those windows to the working monitor so I could work with them there. But then the dark monitor started to brighten up and stayed on. So, I don’t know what the future holds for my system. I may be looking for a new display or two in the near future. As Rosanna Rosannadanna says, “It’s always something – if it ain’t one thing, it’s another.”
