The Handbrake

And then it was $100 less than the advertised price!

There is still the dilemma of what to do with the old one as it still works. It's so unlike you, isn't it Dear, to replace anything that still works. It was my suggestion that someone less fortunate may be able to put it to good use. However, you, my Dear, prefer to keep it 'just in case'. The compromise was to put it in the downstairs cupboard. I was rather sheepishly advised this afternoon that it won't fit. I honestly don't mind where you put it, Dear, as long as I don't have to wipe cockroach or skink dung off it. Fair enough?


I understand your dilemma well. When our old monitor crashed 6 months ago we dragged out a 'spare' one with a minuscule screen from the garage to replace it. We soon got used to it - and prided ourselves in having had the foresight to keep it. But then it began to flicker occasionally. So finally... 'goodbye old faithful and hello lovely widescreen'. We actually took the old one to the DUMP - even though it was still working. Very hard for people like us with a stringsaver mentality!

LCD televisions with screens between 40 inches and 46 inches to the range of products sold on Dell.com.

I've been struggling with getting the resolution correct and it would appear that our Intel graphics card can't emulate the optimum recommended 1600 x 1050 resolution of the screen which is doing odd things to some of the fonts although the xtra size easily compensates for that.
