Gotta Spare Monitor?

Does anyone have an old working monitor lying around waiting to be taken to the dump or given away?

Tuxmachines could use a couple/few good displays. Mine started failing a while back and now most of them are shot.

I know it's not exactly cheap to ship old CRTs, but I don't mind them if you can swing it. In fact, I think I still prefer their "picture" to that of newer LCDs. But LCDs are great too.

If you have a good working monitor or two that you could donate to the cause and get listed on the Wall of Appreciation, please email me at tuxmachines at gmail for a shipping address.

Thank you so much,
Susan

Update: Tuxmachines could use a coupla new DVD burners and SATA hard drives as well.

Update 2: As shipping and such can sometimes be costly, if you'd rather send a donation specifically for hardware, you may do so and send a note specifying that it's for hardware:

  • Regulation can fix security, except you can't regulate security
    Every time I start a discussion about how we can solve some of our security problems it seems like the topics of professional organizations and regulation are where things end up. I think regulations and professional organizations can fix a lot of problems in an industry, I'm not sure they work for security. First let's talk about why regulation usually works, then, why it won't work for security.
