Windows XP on a Zenith Data Systems phosphorus orange screen in 2002.

Background: During college I found this monitor on the side of the road. It's really small, maybe a 10" screen, so it fit nicely under my TV for a second display. Made recording TV shows to WMV much easier.

Sweet, huh?

Na, it's all good. I only kept it for around a year, then I put it back out on the same curb, and someone else ganked it.

I think I'm missing something.

Can someone explain what's so hilarious about this? To me it just looks like he connected his PC to some old yellow coloured display.

:confused:

how did you interface the monitor to your video card? i can't imagine it had a VGA plug.
Actually, it was RCA in, like a TV. NTSC computer monitor. ^__^ Interlaced and everything.
