This morning, my monitor finally crapped the bed. It had been acting wiggy for the past month and finally suffled off the mortal coil. It's gone to the big Philco factory in the sky.
As a result, I made a Christmas Eve trip to the local Staples and picked up a nifty 18.5 inch wide screen as a replacement. Viewing this blog with my old monitor, I had determined that about the maximum width of images and embedded video was around 620 pixels. Images/videos wider than that resulted in the picture being cropped off on the right hand side. No problem.. I just made sure to keep images no wider than 620 pixels.
This monitor, though, will let me view much wider images and videos - which will look great to me, but crappy to anyone not using a wide format monitor. I'm going to try and remember to keep the same width restrictions to my images... but in case I forget and something looks odd to you, just drop me a line or leave a comment and I'll correct it.
