I finally got a table in the basement! 😁
I immediately took that opportunity to quickly set up one of my most prized posessions, my original CRT monitor from 1988 that I used on our first PC and up until at least 1996, so it has seen a lot of use :3
It's an EIZO Flexscan 8060S monitor.
...always been yellowed like that ever since it went into storage more than 20 years ago, it has since lived in the same closet through several moves as well, I now took it out to let it see the light again and just appreciate it, I thought I'd share ^^
I do not intend to clean it further than just removing dust, nor do I plan on retrobrighting it, this is my monitor and that's how it aged 😀
I also don't dare to plug it in yet, as it has sat unpowered for decades and I do not want to fry anything, I might try and take it apart some time to check the capacitors first.
but it being my original monitor is not the only reason why I treasure it so much, I may not have realized it back in the day, but it is also a really good and special monitor, it supports 15KHz-35KHz multiscan TTL and RGB, the original VGA plug converter is still attached to the cable, it was originally first used with an EGA card.
the keyboard I got on ebay a while ago, it is also the same keyboard model we had back then 😀
