When I started programming I used a 14" flickering tv display to program on.
I later got epilepsi (propbably due to the 14" display) and got some glasses.
Recently I bought a 19" tft and I the picture quality is way better than
on my previous 17" which was expensive.  Now I find it really hard to do 
programming on a regular CRT display, because the S-O-S signal outputted
from my eyes.

Take care of those eyeballs :-)
