Ditto. I also tape a piece of paper with monitor info and specs onto
the tops of each monitor. I keep hitting problems when I try to use way
old stuff with new linux releases, so I end up hacking a bit fairly
often. Kinda interesting that a lot of the times I can google on the FCC
ID on various stuff to get the specs I need on no-name or dummy-name
devices. I also keep a tech-notebook on things I've done for future
reference. It's been way handy - might be one of the first things I'd
grab if the house caught fire.
