    Was at my bosses new company today, located in a railway arch outside London
    Bridge, and as each train clears the arch roof, and the rumbling subsides,
    the blue cloured screen goes green, then red, purple and back to blue, takes
    about 7 seconds each time. Very trippy, but could this 'magnetic pulsing
    swirly thing' cause any damage to the monitor ?

    "So, Mr Slumpy you *really* are the perpetual comedian, aren't you ?" I
    threw back my head and roared with laughter as Paul - xxx continued:
    They are bog-standard 14" monitors running a crappy despatch program that
    uses a pale blue background and dark blue text and border that changes
    colour when the trains have passed. And I was told it was to do with some
    magnetic swirly thing that followed each train.

    Heheheh, degaussing them regularly might help, but if it's a _'real_
    'magnetic pulsing swirly thing' then it maybe that there's bugger all you
    can do .. :(

    Personally I reckon 'magnetic pulsing swirly thing's are a much over-rated
    phenomenon .. but then, I know diddly squat about them .. ;)
