The most hated part of a computer(if you’re old like me)

Do you remember this?:

monitorThis old type monitor filter is something I dug out of a pile of stuff we keep around.I haven’t seen one of those for twenty years.When I was young I used to hate mine. Small monitors+low resolution+monitor filter= one dark picture. I wonder if they were even effective or really needed. Were the old CRT monitors so radioactive they needed those nylon mesh monstrosities? If so, why weren’t they included in the package when you bought your monitor? You had to buy and install one yourself. Sometimes they fell down. Maybe it was just a gadget to rake in some more money. Anyway, you can count on Marjon archives to bring in old memories.:-)
