2022 Here We Come!

I’m back in the swing of it all, with my shiny new, curved, 32″ monitor.

These things have to be seen in action to be believed. The actual curve of the monitor took some getting used to, just because it’s visually unfamiliar, but once I did .. wow!

What a difference it makes to the far left and right of any images/print/video I’m looking at. I don’t have anywhere near the same feeling of eyestrain that I did with my flat screen … and this thing is 12cm (5″ bigger!)… sheer decadent indulgence, for the price of an average indulgence … I’m a happy camper!

This picture really doesn't do it justice, but you get the, ahem, picture. :)

I still haven’t been able to find an adaptor for my old monitor at a price I’m prepared to pay, to even be able to find out whether the problem was with the adaptor or the monitor. So, for now Old Faithful is back in her box, and off to the storage unit she will go.

I had wanted to do a couple of posts videos and pictures about the wave after wave, after wave, of snowstorms followed by rain/ice storms we’ve had recently, but it seems that the modern world refuses to even to speak to my old computer which runs on Windows 7 … c’est la vie.

So I decided I’d just post a few of my favourite photos from the bunch of ’em … and unless something impressive happens, I’ll keep the rain/snow/mud slushiness currently surrounding us to meself.

I hope 2022 has been kind to you thus far, but I also hope you’ve got your seatbelt fastened … just in case.

    That was the snow of my childhood! That’s how winters were when I was young. Now they are gray, brown and green. And I am so not complaining!

  10. The world has gone mad. It’s 4Β°C here in sunny California right now. Good thing I haven’t been out of the building in weeks due to omicron, but this is ridiculous. We left New Jersey to avoid cold!

    My monitor isn’t quite as big as yours, and isn’t curved, but it’s amazing to have such a ginormous screen compared to the laptop. Enjoy!

    Well, here’s the warm-up: In Adelaide, Australia, yesterday was 40C, and today is 38C. We’re wearing almost nothing when necessary, nothing at other times.

    Your pictures were cooling, and I put them in front of the fan.

  14. Gorgeous pictures (even though living with that snow is no picnic!) We’re getting yet another atmospheric river right now. Our snow is just a lingering memory.

    My monitor is so old it curved the other way. The words cathode rays come to mind…

  17. Nice monitor and great pictures. I purchased a curved television and it’s the best investment I have ever made, simply stunning. Have a great day.

    Wow…just wow, Widds!?! Those pics are incredible, especially the ice crystals inside, and the ice flows. I mean, I know you love snow and all that, and I know Canada is big on snow, but is this even close to normal?
    Oh and I’m drooling over your new monitor. I’m imagining myself playing one of my games on it…. -cough-
    Btw what is the pic featured /on/ the monitor? It looks like a combination mansion and hobbit house rolled into one.

    Happy 2022 to you! Way to go on getting on it! Your new monitor looks amazing. For the ice on the inside of your windows, do you have single or double paned glass? I’ve not seen ice build up inside like that. Very curious.
