Out of the Blue

I've been having trouble with one of the monitors in my dual-monitor setup for a while: I spent some time on the phone recently with a tech support guy who helped confirm that the monitor's flaky behavior in resuming from power-saving mode was because it was going bad, probably one of those capacitors that cause us so much joy and pain. This morning I couldn't get the bad monitor to come on, and for a while had switched everything to one monitor, but I tried it again in a bit and coaxed into coming on, though the writing is clearly on the wall here. I'm not really eager to go further over the hardware budget, but the brief period working in a single monitor shows me how badly I have spoiled myself with the 3840x1200 pixels of screen real estate I use, and it would be quite an adjustment going back, and it's only a matter of time before this thing stops working altogether, so I have to start planning for that.
