Yes, it's nice having a big screen.  There's still a heck of a lot of people on 1024 and even a few on 800 x 600.  Like all things as technology gets cheaper we move on, but there is a significant enough amount of 1024 users so I had to do something...

Even odder, I saw from the logs that someone was even using IE 2...

A lot of recommendations are directly proportional to the monitor size...NOT the memory or speed of a graphics card. Those things are mainly for pixels color and speed not text.

Also as one's eyes get older the larger resolution with the "tiny" text becomes horridly readable without glasses. If my father had his way he'd be using 640 X 480 on his widescreen Dell!!  Actually he could but then his icons would become huge and it would throw all the rest in a kilter!

Mav / Freddy, I'm still using my "OLD" Viewsonic 19" CRT. Sure, it takes up half of my desk but it STILL works and it has a great picture for doing graphics like with 3D and design apps whereas the LCD's are somewhat lacking in that area. That's why you won't usually see them in a CAD environment where detail / accuracy counts.

Perhaps one day...I'll turn this beast on and it'll go POW!!...blank screen!! 'Till then...well...you know...1280 X 1024.

In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!
