Boise Only: Need A 20" CRT Monitor? Like For Your Computer Museum?

Okay, I'm kidding.  There are people who need any old working monitor for the crummy computer that they have in the garage, controlling their science experiment or Christmas lighting.  (You would be amazed at the stuff I have seen in the garages of HP employees.)  I have two 20" CRT monitor, one a Micron, one an HP.  Both work, at least 1024x768 resolution (maybe a bit higher, but I haven't tried them at a higher resolution).  If you live in the Boise area, I could hand one or both off at work.  I would be very happy to get $10 for each.  If I don't get a buyer in next few days, off they go to whatever thrift store doesn't shriek in terror when they see them coming.

Actually, a good large screen CRT is highly desirable to pharmaceutical researchers, and probably any researcher who needs stereo vision. There are a number of technologies that will only work with CRT.

For my previous company, I found a good, acceptable solution for LCD based stereo. But there are still researchers who can't abide by passive 3D stereo on LCD, and who much prefer CRT based solutions. There are a few non-passive LCD solutions, but they are bulky, awkward, and expensive.
