I have two skylights right above my computer. Every day, for about 6 hours of the day, the glare from the sun shoots directly on my computer. I can't do ANYTHING on it, and when I can I have to suffer through horrible glare

1. Is the sun going to harm my plasma screen?

2. Are there any "skylight blinds or curtains" and if so, where can i get them? (keep in mind I'm Canadian)

I think you mean LCD... never seen a plasma computer monitor...

I used to just tack up cloth over the skylight at a place I once lived...

use thick curtain cloth, folded twice or more, that keeps the light out better than anything else. You can use sticking tape to keep them in place, or if there are nails around, then hammer them in place.

Yeah LCD. And I'll have to try that. The way it works is they are about 2 feet into the ceiling (if that makes sense)

They are deeper than the ceiling, inbedded in the wall.

But yeah.

the easiest possible solution seems like it would be moving the computer/monitor, but I'm sure if that was possible you would have done so.
