Well, when you start going there, I too can say I've been looking at
the 42" jobs. For the living room! Heh, I really need something I can
plug a laptop into, to watch movies and hulu and so on, on occassion.
(We cut the cable years ago.) The TV we look at every now and then was
bought in 1982.

Heheheh... Good gawd, what a waste of time, huh? Screeching flemoids!

Yeah, they just don't make 'em the way they used to. <vbg>

Have you tried running at 120 dpi or higher?

I never see people use them like that. I suppose if you had a huge one
at high-res, it'd do, but it's still lacking for much besides watching
movies IMO. For SxS docs, I prefer having the 8:3 ratio offered by two
standard ratio units. :-)

I guess I could do that, but I prefer not to
get into unnecessary customizing. And I
imagine there'd be the odd program that
ends up having snipped button text and such.
