This...well, I've always sort of done well, although doing music and figuring stuff out on my own has really begun to show over time. Eventually it makes you a bit precocious. I think I'm a somewhat decent example of that considering what happened earlier in the thread where basically everybody thought I was 20+ years old when I was 12-13 at the time.
The thing though is that either people debezel it (basically strip it down to the bare panel and DVI connector and PCB), use the money they save to buy a decent stand, or they just love it due to the fact that it's inexpensive or doesn't have a horribly done AG coating on the surface. Dell had a problem with that with the 2011 Ultrasharp monitors IIRC.
I do prefer you more well known monitors over Korean ones though. You can find them for a good price on the Dell Outlet for Ultrasharps.
I want to learn how to pick locks. Adafruit does have a wallet kit. The kit itself is basically this metal punch-out card with tools and the card itself is the size of a credit card.
Good video on a channel I just discovered today.
