Welcome to the family

Since a little over a week (since sunday 22-oct) we have a new little kitten called Anshu (Hindi for “touched by the sunlight”) in the house to play with Claudia-lee. They don’t get too well along yet but hopefully that will improve. Pictures will soon follow I guess… 🙂

We got  her from a shop where there were way too many animals packed into small cages 🙁 Anshu had an infection in her eye and wasn’t treated for anything nor really cared about… I guess a cheap “brandless” kitty in their eyes deserves less support than a 650€ persian cat :s She seems to be doing better, but is quite shy and it’s hard to catch her to give her medicine…. but I’m sure her situation will improve, and hopefully Anshu and CL can play together soon 🙂 🙂

A while ago I bought 2 Samsung TFT’s , which didn’t go without problems.

It’s been a while since I posted, but actually the day after said post, the second TFT turned up a dead pixel as well. So I went to exchange that one for a “kadobon” as well, and went to look for 2 nice new monitors, preferrably not Samsung. Alas, everything in that MediaMarkt ended up 40 EUR more expensive than before 🙁

I drove to another one (St. Pieters Leeuw -> Basilix) closeby and indeed, same pricing as in the other one a week back… but still way more expensive than the voucher I had in my pocket, except for Samtron and Samsung monitors. The Samtron had a Samsung panel and was cheaper (199 EUR/piece), so probably a B-panel … If I’m having problems with dead pixels why go for even less quality, eh? So in a risky move I bought 2 brand spanking new Samsung Syncmaster 920N’s … hoping they’d be OK.

Haha,  fat chance … secondary monitor had a dead pixel.It stayed black and was about 2-3 pixels from the right side… as I didn’t feel like going to MediaMarkt again for that and starting the exchange game all over again I decided to let it rest. In the meanwhile the pixel has come to life again, yay… 2 fully working monitors *knock on wood & fingers crossed*
