    Shop sweet shop-UPDATE

    Well, you can't hide from me now , I took my old broken screen Samsung Q1 Ultra and hooked 'er up to a monitor, added a mouse and a pc2 > usb adapter for the keyboard{fat fingers and tiny keys don't go well together lol}, dug out an old tv and I now have just about all the comforts one could ask for. Family Woodworking and the Detroit Lions, how could it get much better than that!

    Now if I can only get the Mrs. to open her e-mails/messages on a regular basis, I might never have to leave the shop 'cepting for showers & fluid control

    That's why I'm trying to train Jo Ann into opening her messages more frequently

    Cool, great setup. You know u can get spare lcd displays for your Samsung Ultra. Check out ebay for that kind of thing. They usually pretty easy to replace . Gets u mobile.

    Great setup. I'd never heard of the Q1 before. Looks like very workable shop computer.
