    Really? I could have sworn I said it was ugly.
    If you're referring to that other thread, maybe
    you didn't see the little smiley face... I usually
    use those when I'm not being serious, or when
    I'm being sarcastic. Sarcasm is almost impossible
    to detect in text alone.

    sorry dude, but my mom could write a better site than that. I would run circles around you.
    Don't apologize. I like your mom.

    Everybody always wants to be the best at
    everything. Go for the Glory, Ober5861! Go for
    the praise!!! You deserve it...


    By the way, you were able to read the "under
    contruction until sometime in 2001" statement, right?

    Well, i have a voodoo3 and a 17inch monitor, so i use 800x600. I think that any larger makes the text to small, and that smaller looks blocky. I also perfer 800x600 in gameing too. If i had a larger monitor i would probably want something larger.

    I run my computer at 800X600 I can push it to 1024 X 768 but then I have the alsome color chooses of 256 colors and 256 colors and 256 colors. So I just keep it at 800X 600 using High Color (16 bit). If I reduce to 640 X480 I can use True Color (24 bit), but the screen is way to small.

    I have a 17 inch monitor so i find 1024x768 the best resolution to work with...

    I am going to buy a 19in monitor soon and then i will run at 1280x1024
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!

    At work I use 1280 x 1024, with a 100Hz V-refresh (vertical refresh is more important then the resolution. Before, I had a 17" Sony, which worked "only" with 85 Hz V-ref, and, after 8 hours of work, my eyes burned, now, I've got no problems! ).

    I think, a Sony Trinitron 21" its worth it ;).
