It's whisper quiet, sometimes when I walk away for more than five minutes and the screens go dark, I can't tell if it still on or if it went to sleep!<br><br>

No. it's a 20 and a 15 inch monitor, but close enough. <br><br>

I have one too, DM. Can't really justify an LCD, although I lust after one. Of course, I do a lot of lusting, period <br><br> Alas, poor Yorick. -- Hamlet

Nice! So are you going to MacWorld? Maybe a meet? I'm going to pester everyone on the west coast until you agree. And maybe folks all over. rman? MacGiz? Trog? Too bad Snag is scarce. Who else is in California or thereabouts?<br><br>[color:red]... all things share the same breath - the beast, the tree, the man ... the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports. -Chief Seattle, Duwamish</font color=red>

If I were to get one, it'd have to be the top of the line.<br><br>And I can more easily afford top of the line CRT than top of the line LCD right now..<br><br>

Lori, you just know me too well. <br><br>i do *plan* on cleaning up, but i am guessing that it'll take some company (read: guests who don't know us that well -- close friends already know what to expect ) to get me into action.<br><br>i could certainly learn a thing or thousand from Ruben. <br><br>[color:blue] -sean</font color=blue>

The software that came with the scanner was not up to date, so I had to go to the Canon web site to get the current drivers.<br><br>

That would be super. Would you still come if I poke a little fun at your future governor? As we make plans we will post them.<br><br>
