    On the scrounge for 19"+ CRTs

    Cheeky one this, but worth a try... I'll be having a look on Freecycle as well... Trying to get a media suite up and running on a shoestring - does anyone in the Derby/Notts area have any old (working) 19"+ CRT monitors sat about taking up storage space they'd like to dispose of in my direction? ops:

    Looking for 3 or 4 if the ICT gods are smiling.

    Personally I have a 21" flat CRT monitor what used to be a hard of sight PC in the University I went to which I'm looking to get rid of.

    Problem is, i'm in Norfolk.

    We could sponsor you to walk there with it. For charity mate.

    There's an idea... Hmmm, might be easier to suggest coming to pick it up.

    It weighs probably just over a ton!!

    ROFL. If it's anything like my old 19" Sony Trinitron CRT then it probably does.

    ROFL. I put my back out once carrying one of those f&*%$ up a flight of stairs. And yes, I was carrying it properly.

    Re: On the scrounge for 19"+ CRTs

    With many thanks to KateM for taking time out from her evening to help me out, and one more monitor from Freecycle, I now have 3 very nice CRT's up and running and a roomful of happy kids/teacher. I also have backache. Whoever decided to put the media suite upstairs then request 21" CRT's should have had to carry them for me :P

    Thanks Kate!
