    I found out today that I was nominated and chosen as the Employee of the Quarter at the company I work for. I've worked there 4 months now as one of the network administrators, and so it's a big deal to me that I was chosen for the first full quarter I've been there! :D

    The actual award was a bonus check, so I'm going to celebrate by buying my first LCD monitor! :D I've wanted one for a couple of years but have patiently waited for prices to drop. I'm getting this one from TigerDirect for $329.99, which is actually cheaper than NewEgg. I know, most everyone here loves the Dell Ultrasharp, but that's more than I want to spend.

    The specs:
    19" Hyundai ImageQuest L90D+
    Silver (to match the G5 ;))
    700:1 Contrast
    DVI
    8ms Response Time (reportedly)
    and it swivels! -- not sure how often I'll use that though :yowch:

    Congrats man! The LCD panel should be a nice gift to yourself. :)
    Ah, I cringe at the thought of using a CRT screen for extended periods of time. Haven't had to do that for about 3 years now. ;p

    Thanks everyone! :D

    Yeah, I've got a 19" KDS CRT now. Nice monitor, but it is white, huge and heavy! :dead:

    I'm not even sure how EoY works. Is it usually the pick of the quarterly winners?

    could be I'm not sure how your company works, or who you work for, for that matter.

    But if you are a top employee, for typically 2 quarters you have a good chance.


    maybe they offset it with a yuear end bonus?
    lotsa factors for good employees.
