I wrote too soon.
Just when I was "praising" the other monitor for "behaving" itself the past two years.
As though in attempt to mock me, this obedient monitor of mine fizzles out in a flash tonight. Looks like I'm going to get acquainted with the ViewSonic service staff even more.
Is it mere coincidence? That this happened so quickly in a space of a week? Just when I decided to reverse the roles of the monitors by swapping the program windows I usually place on each side?
One has to wonder.
