I thought there was nothing to report - the internet still worked, my phone made calls.

But this morning the oldest of my three monitors started playing up - disconnecting from source A and scanning A & B for a signal. Eventually finds A, but then wigs out again a few minutes later. After an hour of - swear word laden - trying to diagnose a cause, it decided that no signals actually existed so a blank scn=reen was in order.
Cables all fine, video out signals all fine - the monitor had failed somewhere, though Windows still thinks it exists. Then that died as well, so it's new monitor time.

Just finished squeezing a 32" LG (3840x2160) into the space a 27" Samsung (1920X1080) used to occupy and boy does it look bigger. (And GTA V looks way better at higher res as well!)
