my bad.  on looking closer i see that 20" dell has hd15 as well as

" The real trick is replicating most Forth functions in the TGX+
" firmware to be able to reprogram the clock of the RAMDAC to
" non-supported values (the chip itself is quite versatile, the function
" used to program it isn't), and then figure out which combinations of
" the various parameters will allow the monitor to sync (porch, sync
" pulse, etc.). Modern monitor are _not_ tolerant :-(

that i would be interested in.  i have another old machine with a pair
of tgx+ and i would love to have a really-big desktop on it.  do you
have details on what you did and how you did it?
