Plain Jane display. No transparency or anything else.
This particular machine is a Pentium 120 with 32Mb ram and a built in low end video adapter.
On a separate heads up and change of topic, has anyone received some weird message from `EDickey "at" teletrol.com` where he/she claims to have installed something called spamender and I must reply to the message to be able to send him/her messages?
Irrespective of the explanation that reads ....
"In an effort to eliminate unsolicited e-mail, I have installed SpamEnder. You must REPLY to this e-mail, without modifying the subject line, so that SpamEnder will release your original message to my Inbox. Upon my approval, future e-mails you send to me will be released automatically. If you do not REPLY to this e-mail, SpamEnder will block all future e-mails from this address and will not give you another opportunity to reply."
.... I'm not going to reply to it. To me it looks like some very clever and seriously absolute social engineering trick.
Besides, I've never sent Everett anything.
