My work is getting rid of some 17″ vga-only monitors. Most still work I believe. They will end up as landfill /recycling and I was going to ask my boss if they could be donated to an appropriate not-for-profit organisation..ie us!
Before I go to the trouble I was wondering how many of you would have projects that could use one?
The parallax propeller works really well with these older VGA monitors. They are a nice little microcontroller that is relatively easy to program and has an onboard VGA graphics driver, nothing fancy but they are good info displays. I would be happy to find a home for 2 or 3. Could store a few more for 12 months as well.
