Funny i should see this mail today, i was just remisining about my old Sun
Widescreen CRT i think it was one of there...
I was huge, very heavy and worked rather well keeping my flat warm (its not
wasted energy if you do not have any other form of heating ;) I took it to
the recycling centre when I guess was a PSU issue stopped it working, it
has been developing green horizontal lines too.
With that one one side and the "standard" Sun 20" on the other my desk took
quite some shoring up. it was quite amasing though, wish I had pictures.
Yours jabbering on,
