Dual Monitors - A Beautiful Thing

People have different ideas about what's beautiful I guess. And among things one would place in that category, there would be different kinds of beauty. For me, a beautiful thing is the experience of using dual monitors for one computer. I've had the capability for awhile; my 4-year-old Dell has a video card can handle 2 monitors, but for one reason or another I hadn't made use of it for years. Then I got some inspiration. I had a spare 19-inch CRT laying around, so I said, Why not?

I plunked the CRT down on my desk (had to make some room for it first), hooked it up, configured my graphics settings and presto change-o! Now I've got twice the screen area and I'll never go back (if I can help it). If any of you have the appropriate video card and a spare monitor, I urge you to give it a go. You won't regret it. If you need help, drop me a line. I'll be glad to help, for a small fee!
