I don’t know about computers… but I know I had a TV in a bedroom once about 1 m away from the bed. Although it was not plugged in, after sleeping next to it for a few hours it had a slight glow, clearly visible with the lights turned off.

My conclusion, Matt was rather trying to say it’s unhealthy for your equuipment, and you might end up having to upgrade soon! :D

that glow is just Phosphor though, which is harmless. The phosphor is just to make the picture seem brighter when it is switched on.

Harmless for us, but that TV man… I could feel the pain! :D

LMAO.

Off topic years ago, I heard a burglar stole a persons 33inch CRT Toshiba TV in the UK. As he got it thru the window ( god knows How ) he slipped, pulled his back and dropped the TV on his foot.

He later sued the homeowner, for personal injury ! ( not sure on the outcome )

I cleaned my office yesterday. I took some pics to upload here, but only then did I realize how much I used shadows and perspective to “hide” stuff from every day viewing. Needless to say – my office looks way to cluttered in a 4K pixel image! Will try again in 6 months to a year ;)
Try a 80×80 pixel image. :D

That only marginally helps

Still looks like Bust Buy, Staples and Radio Shack went to war and my office was the battle field!

Hello friends ,
After all of this conversation about the non-sideEffectness (yes, a new word) of electronical devices , I decided to build a bed for myself from ComputerParts , and my pillow will be the panel of a CRT. :shocked:

To me everything looks fine so far but the bread crumb on the keyboard and the coffee stain on the left display. Apart from that it’s a great workspace.

Yours is 80×54. You should have uploaded a 80×80 pic than we could see much more. :D
