Re: [BCAB] Paul David severe computer problems. Joseph Paton 15 Dec 2012 00:29 GMT

Hi,
When space has to be considered, Now Monitors can be  so much
smaller, take up less footprint lighter than they were in the past,
it might be pheasible to mound one fairly high up on a wall, on a
propper adjustable mounting, well certainly above head height.

Then  you've only got the hassle of locating somebody with the
patience to read the screen for you.

How about a weazel?

Only joking.
