New Monitor

January 24, 2007 – 7:21 pm | by Bill

I recently added another new monitor to my setup. My friend recently sold his desktop computer and bought an Asus G1 (Nice gaming laptop!), so he was selling his 20″ widescreen LCD. I bought it from him for a reasonable price, and I’ve uploaded pictures of my desk, here and here. The monitor is a Benq FP202W.
I managed to find a software package called UltraMon, which has many features for dual-screen monitors. The one that I am using it for primarily, is to stretch one wallpaper over both of my monitors. I downloaded a bunch of wallpapers off of deviantArt, and have configured UltraMon. It’s working great!

I rarely, if ever, install custom screensavers. However, I did find a couple that looked cool, and did not contain spyware!. I can’t remember what they are called though, but they can span over both monitors, which I told them to.

In a post a few weeks ago, I mentioned that I was going to install FreeNAS on my spare computer, and use it as a backup/media server. I have not done this yet, I have been preoccupied with School and work. I’ve been thinking about installing FreeNAS to play around with for a few days, and then eventually install CentOS 4.4 and use it as a sandbox server for updates, etc (as well as backup/media server) that I do not want to deploy on the dedicated server.
