      Man, it was bad. The monitor was in a plastic bin, and was going down
      on the hand truck with two other bins. I lost my footing two steps from
      the bottom and the pile cascaded down. The monitor housing shattered
      and the CRT neck got whacked.

      It's very upsetting, doubly so because I can only blame myself. That
      monitor, and the 5160 it went with, was absolutely *pristine*. I really
      need to find another one.
