My niece turned me on to a the little DVD player shown on top of my laptop, but the screen is so tiny (especially when the movies are wide screen) that it is hard for these old eyes to see. Of course reading glasses help, but still its pretty hard to see without getting close and also makes it real hard to get comfortable.) I had the 22 inch monitor that I brought down here from Plano, but using the desk top that goes with it is out of the question without running the generator. (500 watt power supply and then the overhead of the monitor on top of that.) Well I decided to see if I could use the monitor with the small DVD player and I could IF I had the right cable, but I don't. I searched around and found my USB DVD player and hooked it up to the laptop and I could watch movies like that, but the combination still drew more watts than I wanted it to so using it at night is out of the question. (unless its a windy night so the wind genny can handle the load) I'll see about getting the right cable to run the monitor off of the small portable DVD player and that will take care of that problem. The monitor was running off of the laptop in the picture below.
Waiting for the lightrail - It is very early but I was ready to leave the hostel. It was snowing earlier. Time to head south.
