Storm, your avatar shows fine on my (CRT-)monitor too, and it's got a brightness ratio of 60% (from its maximum 100 %). I don't think it has anything to do with the video card though, this site isn't that hard on 3d-acceleration or that sort of thing. 8)

I think it's just my screen that's too dark. It's a really old screen :-\ I'm on another computer now, and everything looks just fine  ;D

I suppose you could just get a new monitor, Storm... I got my 17" flat-screen Samsung SyncMaster 753df CRT for something like $250 USD, and it's pretty nice. The only annoying part is that it occasionally "forgets" my refresh rate setting when I first boot up, but at least that's quickly fixed. (Plus I'm not sure it's not just my computer being a pest, as opposed to the driver.)

Unless you meant that *you* now have a new computer, as opposed to simply temporarily using someone else's, in which case never mind. ;)

Peace & Luv, Liz

WOW! I didn't notice it when I first read your message, but now I was looking at the screen... and it's also a 17" Samsung SyncMaster! it's 753dfx though ;) Of course, it's not MY screen... I'm still using someone else's computer  :P

Heh. Er, that's because after I posted my message, I realized I had really intended it to be sort of a "My monitor rules, if you want to get a new CRT, try the same model." sentiment. I then realized that sentiment would probably work a lot better if I actually put in my monitor model. ::) So I edited it, and you must have initially read it before it was edited. Oops.

One of these days I want to get an LCD, and I'll probably stick with Samsung. I probably will only get a 15" one, though. Getting stuff to actually be readable without squinting was annoying enough with 1024x728... I'd have to crank stuff ridiculously in a higher res. Plus, even as small as LCDs tend to be, I don't have *that* much room on my desk.

Peace & Luv, Liz

I ordered a 17 inch LCD monitor together with my new pc but that's still on backorder. I know you can buy 17 inch LCD's in shops everywhere, but I don't trust them. Also, my current 17 inch CRT monitor, CTX-brand, dates from the same period as this pc, 1998, and it's still working fine. The reason why I'm moving to LCD is because I want a bigger monitor but my pc desk is not 'deep' enough to put it at a sufficiently long range. Even this 17" CRT-monitor is actually a bit too close to me/my eyes.

Give me something!

By something, i mean something good, like a TEAMSTER shirt, or a mango, or a marker pen.  Not a kick in the teeth.
