First, the bad (and it's not all terrible or anything, but... well, you'll see)
Devotees of the Cold War will remember the Domino Theory.
I had a shining example of that this morning that resulted in my computer desk overturning and my monitor going bang on the floor.
And my coffee press.
On a tile floor (like most all floors in Costa Rica).
The press is smashed.
The monitor, which is LCD, still "works", but approximately 1/3 of it is ... no more. A nice diagonal from the top right of the screen to the bottom center -- and everything to the right of that diagonal is blank.
Which makes it tough to do ... a lot of computer things.
Like edit and post a photo of the smashed coffee press. Which is why there isn't an accompanying photo for this post.
Oh, and the good news is, I can still use the monitor enough to write this post.
So, anyone know where the best place in Costa Rica is to find both a coffee press and LCD monitor cheap?
