Single Status Update
Well yesterday didn't exactly end on a high note. There was a bit of a storm outside and we lost power for a second. I have a surge protector on my computer, but apparently it was still enough to kill my second monitor (this thing's ancient and has been on its last leg for a long time now). It'll be odd working with just a single monitor again after having used two for so long, but I'll have another in by next week to replace it.
Maybe the day actually did end on a high note, since I've been meaning to get a better one for a while and finally found the motivation to do so.
Wanna know something else odd about that power surge? My brother has a tv that's gotta be from the dark ages, that thing's beyond ancient. It hasn't worked in a couple years, but after lastnight it does again for some reason.
Oh well, I won't question it.
I'm pretty sure that older devices are less power efficient, so when the power surge occurred, your brother's TV finally received enough of a power input to produce a useful output that was enough to make the TV work.
As for your second moniter, the power surge might have melted a fuse or something, so that's why it doesn't work.
