Fill My Eyes With That Double Vision

From what I’ve heard, once you go dual, you never go back. I’ll let you know–I’m experimenting with dual 19-inch LCD monitors. Surprisingly, it was a PITA to install, because apparently my PC’s ATI videocard, which is designed to simultaneously pump out both VGA and DVI video–and hence allowing two monitors–apparently had a defective DVI output. But now that I’ve replaced the card, and have both monitors working, it seems like it should improve workflow with recording programs such as Cakewalk Sonar, and video programs like Adobe Premiere Pro. Not to mention experimenting with rotating the monitor 90 degrees for Word documents.

Besides, it looks bitchin’ cool to boot. Maybe I’ll add a third!
