One of the underlying foundations of Cyberpunk Librarian is working high tech and low budget. And when you’re working for a government organization, you can’t just throw stuff out. It has to be properly surplussed, handled, catalogued, and so on. Or you can just hold on to the old stuff, which is what a lot of organizations do.
That’s fine, but wouldn’t it be nice to give life to that old stuff? For instance, we’ve had a bunch of monitors just sitting around doing nothing. They’re not broken, they’ve just been replaced because the new systems came with monitors as part of the package. So we’ll take them in for spares, or dual monitor setups, or whatever. However so many of them just sit on a shelf and do nothing.
And now these six monitors have some new life, new use, and we’ll get more out of them. After all, they weren’t free. So why not use them?
