The Monitor lost this battle

The monitor on my main computer decided to transform itself into a giant paperweight this evening. The computer itself worked OK, and I could access its stuff via my other, linked computer; but no picture on the main screen.

So, we took an old monitor off my tertiary computer -- the one we only use for accessing old DOS programs -- and I am up and running again, though my picture is now extremely cramped.

What I need to do is load everything I really use onto my secondary computer and make it my primary box, especially since my current primary is getting old and cranky. But that means I need to find some disks for things like Corel WP that I've got around here somewhere.

This really sucks beef jerky. I don't have time for this.
