IT help, please?

Is it my imagination or is a green font against a black screen the worst combination for your eyes?

"For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, 'He has a demon.' The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, 'Here is a glutton and a drunkard..."

The first turn is the worst turn, between the left ear and the right one.

not yet...

that .Net stuff is just a fade. We'll keep our RS6000 with 32MB of RAM in production for another year...

we have some spare 3151 terminals if you like amber and black instead of green and black.

It's funny when your desktop has more computing power than a machine that a company spends a million dollars a year on just to keep it running

Yeah we went away from a GUI because supporting it was too costly and the GUI was limited. Now were back to hot keys and green screens. Ahhh, progress!
