New Monitor!!

It finally came! On Friday I ordered a LG 1950SQ 19" LCD monitor. I was expecting it to take a couple of more days but the Purolator gods smiled upon me and I had it today. It is glorious. Here's the nerd specs:

19", 1280x1024 resolution, 8ms, 700:1 contrast, 0.264mm

Its so sharp and amazing. I watched the car chase scene from iRobot and I couldn't see any ghosting and it looked... amazing. Ok, ok, I need a thesarus.

I've also got a cool hardware mod for you. I put a lexan window in the top of a hard drive. Here is a picture but you'll have to wait for google to verify the video before I put that up.

It looks like there is dirt on the inside but thats just what is on the lexan on the outside. There is some silicone smeared on the inside but I don't care. I did this to see if I could do it not as a beauty contest. I am a little concerned as to how long it will last as it was having SMART errors before I modded it. O well.

Here is your link of the day. I totally agree with the authors #1 pick.
