A Flickering Daze

The company has an in-house Learning Centre which houses a Computer Lab for training purposes. Yesterday, several colleagues and I started a 3-day course on Digital Signal Processing (DSP). I'm not going to write about how difficult and confusing it is because my boss might just read it and realize that I'm either incompetent or lying (or both!).

Unsurprisingly, the computers in the Lab are really old and discarded models. Performance is one issue, but a major headache (literally) are the CRT monitors. Since changing to LCD displays years ago, I've been unable to withstand the flickering on CRT monitors. It drives me nuts and gives me headaches! Plus, the lights are dimmed in the lab so I have to face a glaring, under-refreshed, low-resolution screen!

Arrgh! My eyes! My eyes!

People huddled over small flickering monitors in a dark room. Sounds like some kind of illegal establishment.
