Last CRT Gone

As part of a push to “refresh” the capabilities of Waldorf, I recently replaced its aging 17-inch Compaq CRT monitor with a new 17-inch Samsung SyncMaster 720N LCD monitor. The Compaq it replaces is a massive monitor, so the switch to a flat panel is a definite improvement in desk space utilization.

Waldorf is currently my mother’s computer, although I still consider it part of my “family” of computers. When I first built Waldorf, I built it entirely out of used parts, and intended for it to be a secondary computer to Fozzie. Fozzie is still my primary computer, but now that Waldorf is my mother’s primary computer, I’d like to try and update some of the hardware components. I’ll focus first with the most pressing needs — like this monitor.
