I guess /diy/ isn't a slow board anymore since my last thread was pruned already.
While learning how to solder, I went ahead and build this tin-can TV antenna as an alternative for my trusty 2-year old coat-hanger antenna, and while it works (I was surprised) and I gained some channels, I also lost others, so for now I am going back to the coat-hanger wonder since I can adjust the tuning while I can't do the same with the new one (unless I built some sort of stand for it).
I might just put it on a pole I have sitting outside. As you can see from the pic, there is a ton of trees preventing a clear line of sight to where most transmitters are in my area.
Can the anon that previously posted his outdoor coat-hanger-inspired antenna? I was too late to save the image but it looked sturdy.

So i have two different 21 inch monitors, a Vizio and an HP. Anyways, I want to convert them into a dual monitor setup, but both monitors have a very large and obtrusive external border. I've tore both of them apart and have the barebones LCD w/ the mobo and all. I want to now use these as dual monitors, but i have two predicaments.
First, i need to construct some type of external case for me to mount the monitors. Ive though of just using a piece of plywood and simply making holes to screw into the back of the monitor.
And next, are there any optimal dual monitor mounts that actually allow for these type of barebones monitors? Or is my best bet going with something in my price range once I get some type of backing on the monitors?
