help my monitor is making my skin very dry!
    #3140432 - 09/15/04 09:02 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I have a 21" CRT monitor and i spend quit allot of time in front of it doing research, playing games and posting here and it dried out my face.

I know for sure its the monitor since when i work at my laptop for a few days my skin gets much better. When i sit in front of the regular one my skin cracks up like hell.

Any ideas what to do?

i'm telling you. your eyes are sapping moisture from your face so they don't shrivel up and roll out of their sockets.

Well, all it's doing is shooting millions and millions of electrons at your face all the time. Let's see.

You have a 21 inch monitor, so let's say you're running at
1280x1024 @ 75Hz. This should be a big number :smile:

1280x1024 = 1,310,720 pixels.

1,310,720 pixels @ 75Hz refresh rate = 98,304,000 electrons being shot directly at your face and into your eyes every second, for hours at a time =D

Thats what coming out of your monitor. LCDs = <3

the electrons excite phosphors which emit photons.

photon != electron

Well that makes more sense. Photons = not harmful. That many electrons every second would surely hurt you after a while.

At least my math was right.
