I actually went to the back of the desk and completely removed the monitor cable, then reattached and secured it with duct tape. It may be too early to say, but I /think/ this has eliminated the flicker.
yet more proof that the force is just like duct tape.
It has a light side, and a dark side (tho both are greyish so we don't know where one begins and the other ends! BUT START DOWN THE DARK SIDE AND YOU WILL HAVE MIGRAINS!) and holds the universe together.
