Nah, I'm just trying to figure out the Mac "culture". I want to get
my currently unused workstation monitor on the G3 and poke around a
I ran across a web page giving the hookup and resolutions for the
Monitor ID pins on the display connector. I can take it from there.
I'll poke around the recycling place for interesting widgets
pertaining to Macs, but I don't intend to spend too much time on
