    Default New toys!

    My two CRT monitors have officially been retired. Their replacements came in the mail today.

    Here's my new setup:



    I'm VERY happy.

    The monitors set me back $500 ($460 once I send in the mail-in rebates). As for the rest of the system... I've kind of built it in pieces, upgrading one part at a time over the past 5 years. I have no idea how much the current configuration cost.

    Er... I think you're seriously underestimating what a qualified job makes

    I only teach 60% time, but I think my pay is based on a 25 - 30k salary for a full time position. I'm not doing it for a whole year, though. I started at the beginning of the winter trimester (after Thanksgiving). Next fall, I'm off to graduate school.

    Hmm... undertimation. You mean underestimaton?
    And yes, a full-blown teaching job around here (I didn't realize Blake was only doing part-time) is about 80 000 CAD a year.
