About a month ago I moved into a new apartment and during the move my desk had to be sacrificed in the move. So for the past month I didn't use my computer for much else then watching videos, since it was set up on a coffee table 16 inches off the floor. This last saturday my sister found me a desk at an estate sale, which made me happy to get back on my desktop. Since I had been using my tablet thinkpad to color ever since I moved I was happy to get back to my big processor to handle higher res stuff. So I got the desk in saturday night and was happy until this morning when my monitor decided to have some surge protector circuit fail making it shut off every 20-30 seconds. I went to meet a friend at his shop to get a new monitor, but wasn't able to get in. so I have decided to try to hook up my TV as a monitor. the only problem with that is I need an adaptor or a different monitor cable. Unfortunately I don't have either here and need to retrieve them in the morning.
Update: Cables and adaptor retrieved but video signal is un-useable. So tomorrow i plan to head to my friends shop to pick up a monitor.
