OK Guys, I got some big troubles. My laptop monitor went out. The new laptops use a light bulb to light the screen. It's called truebright. They can't fix it until Tuesday.
OK, you think RVing is tough, try using a computer with no display. How am I doing?
I sent my output to our 65 inch TV. Took some doing but I had a picture but it was way off the screen. You just don't know how hard computing is with the left hand side of the screen off in no mans land where you can't see it. I finally worked every option on the computer and the TV and have a normal screen.
I will be limited in keeping up with you guys until the middle of the week. Don't post any real important stuff.
I saw the shifting comments and will be back on them when I get back to normal.
Here's picture of what my screen looks like now.

John - That's interesting that the new laptops use a light bulb. I just bought a Sony Vaio that has a very bright screen (Sony calls it XBRITE technology), so I'm assuming it's similar to yours. Do you know if those bulbs are user-replaceable? If so, maybe we should be carrying spares. Good luck. - Dave

Dave,
Don't know yet until they do the replacement under warranty. The hardest part will be getting into the location within the laptop location. I'll ask. Big Bad John & Runaround Sue
