Cleaning a Few Things Up

Many months ago, Dave McCarty gave me a cassette tape from a band named "Enormous Richard" (don't think about that too long) and asked me to transcribe it to CD. I finished it this morning, in time to take to his New Year's Eve party tonight. Dave's SO, Helen, is unlikely to forgive me for this, since I have this nasty feeling that Enormous Richard's Almanac is going to be set for continuous play during the party...

Nice Picture

I returned the USB to Serial adapter to CompUSA, since it didn't work with the software that I had. While I was there, I picked up a dual-head video card that would support my Samsung 213T monitor at 1600x1200 resolution via a digital connection. Wow, that's nice!

I also discovered that the reason that my Samsung 913T on the other head looked crappy was because the Gamma was set to a stupidly bright setting which might look ok in the store, but which washed out all of the blacks. That's also nice.
