    Glad you got it fixed! Who says you can't mix tractors and computers?

    Brin,

    I'm surprised she doesn't like two screens open with the desktop extended onto the 2nd monitor. That way you can watch Swamp People on one screen and surf TBN on the other!

    But seriously, I have extended desktop across two monitors and I really like it. I have email, calendar and another application open on one screen and whatever I'm currently working on open on the big monitor. Makes for a lot less switching between applications. You might want to give it a try.

    I have that at home and at work. Works well. A co-worker has a 24" flatscreen which is about the size of 2 19" "regular" monitors and loves it.

    At work I have a dock that my laptop slides into. There're two 22" monitors for that. Very nice. Then I have a smaller laptop with a 2nd monitor for that. So, 4 monitors, lots of different things to keep an eye on and still a space to work.
