I hate technology

Spent two hours trying to persuade my laptop to talk to my monitor in its native resolution. As the only graphics connector on the laptop is VGA, and the laptop didn't seem to recognise that the monitor could even handle 1680x1050, let alone that it was the native resolution, this was less than useful. I eventually managed to talk it into it, with the help of Powerstrip, which has a godawful interface, but with a bit of tinkering was able to persuade Windows to work with it.

The next laptop is going to have either DVI or HDMI output.
