Rack mount seems to be going extinct these days, and everything we have

Not too many tube types left here Mike, mostly lcd stuff as the tubes
fade away into the sunset. Even in computer monitors there at the
station I think lcd's handily outnumber the tube stuff. But here on
this linux box, my old 17" NEC 5FG finally turned up its toes over on
the firewall box, so that was good excuse to move the one on this box
over there, and go get a 19" incher for this box, tube of course, and
flat too, half the price ($150 at Office Max, StarLogic brand if that
means anything, chinese of course) and a much finer dot pitch, I run at
1600x1200x32 bit and have for years. I'm still burning the phenolic
stink out of it & its 3 months old already.
