There are no more monitors in the 8CM1515/1CM135/Commie 108X category
being made. There are no more tube monitors beong made except for some
big chinese knockoffs, I'm looking at a 19" right now. A used one from
the pawn shop maybe, or an svga monitor and Roy's adaptor would be
another suggestion. I'm using that solution on my coco3 myself.
People having trouble with vz bouncing email to me should add the word
'online' between the 'verizon', and the dot which bypasses vz's
stupid bounce rules. I do use spamassassin too. :-)
