Years ago, before my husband and I moved to this neighborhood and both started working in the hospital my husband worked in the computer trade as a technician.
He worked for a fairly large company that sold computer related equiptment – huge orders of systems and associated peripherals, would go through their warehouse. Sometimes there was something wrong with the equipment and it either didn’t end up being shipped or it was returned by their clients.
The company often threw out the returned equipment. Not always, yes they’d return it to the manufacture most of the time but for some reason it was too much bother to send some of it back.
Well that’s how Chris and I ended up getting two viewsonic monitors. One is in use in our upstairs computer room. It’s a big 20 inch monitor. It had fallen and it’s got a crack across the top. It’s screen needs a lot of tinkering to get it to align properly but once you’ve put the time into it the monitor works great.
The second monitor is one of the first Viewsonic LCD monitors. As far as we know it’s in perfect working condition. Unfortunately it’s always been missing it’s cord so we’ve never been able to plug it in and use it.
I’d love to find a place that sold possibly obscure computer and monitor accessories as I might be able to find the right cord at one of these places.
Interesting how we got some nice freebies though isn’t it?
