It’s unfortunate, but my 21.5’’ 1080p Samsung monitor just turned black while it was running and I was cleaning some dust off it with a dry tissue (does that make any sense?). Since I don’t have a spare monitor lying around, or any computer other than my mobile phone I am feeling somewhat crippled until I get a replacement.
This seems to emphasize the need for hardware redundancy or fallback devices. My mobile is not properly set up to act as emergency desktop replacement.
So, please don’t expect me to be very active until I can resolve this issue. Also. I’m definitely trying to stay relaxed during this inconvenient situation
Edit : Seems the monitor itself is not damaged. I suspect the HDMI cable to be kaput. Can they actually break that easily?
Edit2: On second thought, it’s probably actually the monitor. These things do tend to get old and unreliable. So, I need a new one. I dislike maintenance expenses like these.
