FIRE!

Well, almost. A cow-orker came running into my office, rather excited, telling me, "You have to see this, hurry!"

I maneuver around the desk in my cramped office, and as I approach the door, I notice this buzzing noise. As I get closer to the guy's office, it's getting louder and louder. He points to one of his monitors, which is doing it's impression of one of those plasma globes, making a loud buzzing noise. I notice smoke coming out of the back, so I advise him to turn it off. A minute or so later, he turns it on again, "just to check", and it immediately starts buzzing and sparking and smoking again, so he quickly turns it off and unplugs it. It's about then I start to smell the smoke. Strong, gagging, overpowering.

Yeah, I think that monitor is dead!

I got authorization and a blank check and headed over to Fry's and picked up a new Samsung 20.1" LCD monitor. Man, that thing is sweet! I'm jealous now.

What if your monitor catches fire as well?

Maybe you could keep the new one and let them use the one you had at your desk :)? hehe.
