Just bought 2 new flatscreen monitors and now don't know what to do with the old, standard ones. Both 17". Noone wants them but they still work!

Seems a shame to just take them to the tip!! :ohwell

Turn them into an attractive fish tank, to impress your friends and family:

I thought the same, I had a 21 inch Compaq monitor in perfect working order but when I went down the tip there were about 5 cages full of em'.

You could try these guys http://www.freecycle.org/ but I reckon 95% of the stuff people offer are monitors.

I liked my idea better. Giving it away means you are causing electron beams to be fired at some other victim's face.

Throw them off the top of a tall building.

You may get lucky and hit someone aswell.

Hope so, or I've got a 19" flat screen pikey hooked up to my PC

Well they're both in abundance around council estates.

Have you noticed the number of old CRT monitors that appear to be floating round people's lounges in Gloucester when the cameras go in? Bet they've been up in the loft getting them all down!
