Anyone know what I can do with extra monitors? I've checked with a local medical recycling program here in Madison, but have a surplus and won't take anymore. Not looking to profit...just want to give them to a good home rather than throwing them away.

Any suggestions for how to deal with an unsupportive spouse?
