The goal of this blog is to have some fun with git and learn something along the way…
I had this small 7” screen lying around and in order to practice for this post.
I decided to create a nice frame for this monitor and have some fun…
Uhh no that is actually not completely true. I had this monitor lying around because I made a mistake while ordering on AliExpress. I actually thought that I had bought a 7” touchscreen. Result: No on the touch but yes on the screen :-)

This will be a multi-part blog about a hobby project I embarked upon.
The idea is to create my own portable monitor from an old laptop screen. I have an old Sony Vaio laptop with a 15” 1280x800 monitor.
The laptop does not work anymore but I know that the screen was fully functional.
So just for a fun project I decided to see if I can make it into a mobile monitor. It is still
an ongoing project and I will make it into a sequel as I go. It will be a journey for me as I have
never done something like this before. Actually when I started I didn’t even know if it could be done…

none of them had ever heard of these tools. Not even the Senior developers.
Well this is bad and needs to be fixed!

Often times we *ix users want to make a command easier when we type it often. To create a shell script for all of these simple things is just a bit overkill, but creating an alias does not always do what you want. Aliasses can’t take parameters without having a delimter… Here is how to get it do work.
If you could do it with more ease in a shell script is up to you to descide…
