Since I managed to get an improvement in quality on the LCD using the DVI port on the Radeon, I decided to try setting up my old Dell Ultrascan 15" monitor on the VGA port.

With some very simple tweaking, got X running both heads sensibly. Starting GNOME also 'just worked' without any setup or reconfiguration. I'm very impressed.

I now have an IRC window open on the Dell, whilst the LCD handles other applications. Its going to take some getting used to.



I've had a home on the web for more years than I care to remember, and a few kind souls persuade me it's worth persisting with keeping it updated. This current incarnation of the site is centred around the blog posts which began back in 1999 as 'the daylog' and continued through my travels and tribulations during the following years.

I don't get out and about nearly as much these days, but I do try to record significant events and trips for posterity. You may also have arrived here by following the trail to my former music blog Songs Heard On Fast Trains. That content is preserved here too.
