Boot

This is the least I’ve ever received for Christmas, but who cares? I got exactly what I wanted.

1) A denim jacket. I’ve wanted one since ever.
2) A 1280×1024 LCD monitor w/TV tuner. This will be awesome.

I have a GeForce4 MX 440 with VGA out and S-Video out. This makes for only one monitor and one TV screen – the TV screen can be used as a second workspace – but this TV tuner takes S-Video. So what I’m thinking is that I can hook it up to my computer through S-Video.

Maybe someone can help me out with this – my question is, will the S-Video output be smooth at 1280×1024 if it goes straight from the computer to the monitor? Or will it have teh fuzziesz as if it’s a resized TV screen? If so, I can always use my new monitor as the main one (since it’s bigger than the one I currently have). I don’t NEED a second monitor, but when using Flash and running a whole bunch of other apps, things get cluttered.

Oh, and with this TV tuner my roommate won’t be looking at what I’m doing, but at Star Trek. I guess that’s my Christmas present to him – use of my new monitor. :P

Now, to make reservations for my party tomorrow. Scroll down my blog just a bit, we got lots of people RSVP’d!

    1. I lost a grand total of two leather jackets. Both were hand-me-downs from my dad, and one he didn’t even know I took/lost. :o
      So I’ll try my luck with denim. *looks around* Once I remember where I put it.
