I think I'll trade mine in for non destructive Sugar Gliders. That or a Mogwai. If I want another, I can make him after Midnight.As much as they aggravate me, I love my babies. I care about them more than stuff. I know the cat didn't mean to knock it over. He was trying to climb over it. Good thing I had the messed up backup monitor for the time being. The lines on it are annoying but at least it's not shattered and flashing with a big crack. Although, it did look like an art piece somewhat. I'm looking in to wall mounts now.
I can't even eat feedlot beef anymore. I have to go with local / regional grass fed. It's like a treat because I can't afford it like it was on the McDonald's menu. More like when I want just the killer Burger.Speaking of beef, I've heard there is a shortage or will be one due to meat factories getting hacked. Although, I heard that some of the hackers who put ransomware on multiple systems got paid entirely in Bitcoin and the FBI hacked them and took their bitcoin away. I think there is a dispute now bc they didn't give the Bitcoin back to the companies that paid the ransom. We'll see if they get it back or not. FBI might consider it asset forfeiture and keep it.
Here are the desk mount arms I've used. Looks like they are on sale for $47.97 and I've been really happy with them. If your looking at something different just make sure you don't pay much more than that because those have been rock solid for a number of years for me and 3 other people I've installed them for.Nice! I'm still working on my plans for the desk, and I may need to figure out how to add a 2nd compartment for a serger. FB marketplace had a serger + 2 drawers full of thread + 3 how-to books for $75. Sergers cost well over $300 from what I've seen when I shopped around. If it works it might be worth it. But, I will see if the seller answers.
Meanwhile, cats knocked over my monitor and busted it.

I got the 3-yr protection plan from samsclub so I'm going to take it back in with a printout of the receipt (can't seem to find the original receipt)- plus they can look it up to see I got the protection plan. I'm using another monitor that was just past the warranty when it developed vertical lines on the screen. If I split my windows and have them on opposite sides of the line, it works ok. Monitor was designed to have split screen.
I think I will get an articulating wall mount for my monitor so I don't have to worry about the little a-holes knocking it over again. also considered making a base for it and bolting it down somewhow.
We had a friend who took in a number of stray cats. She developed a vision problem which turned out to be due to parasites from the cats.Regarding cats: they're great, I love them almost as much as dogs, but toxoplasmosis is very real, especially if your house ain't very clean and you're not in great health. "Crazy cat lady" is a cute bumper sticker only until it's a legit parasitic disease.
