It's our member Mat! I just added the link to the list under "Appliction-specific" in the left column on the site :)

How did you sniff your way to that page, btw? ;)

P.S thanks for the flowers.

Check out these HUGE clickable images embedded / linked on Mat’s
recent contribution!
Well, of course I was happy when I could switch with my 2MB PDS graphiccard in my PM 6100 that is attached to the G3 upgradecard to 1024 x 768. But for serious work I stopped working in this resolutions when I got my Umax Pulsar in 2000. What are you guys working on your Mac OS 9 (okok I know the thread)?!  ;D

To be serious; I did this screnshots from my TI Powerbook at a 2nd monitor (to not have to show you  my private desktop items and not have to change something). I was stunned, as it was the first time that I used such a huge 2nd resolution at the TI and it works flawlessly with 1 x 1280 x 854 plus 1920 x 1200 at the 2nd external display (which is mine btw) at the one internal graphiccard.  No difference noticable compared to my ATI 9200 128 MB or my 3dfx VooDoo 5500 or the GeForce4 Ti I am using in the desktop Macs.

Well understood Mat. Nobody wants to see your “private” desktop items…
just as no one need be exposed to my own “bizzaro” desktop file & folder
naming conventions.

But why “Papierkorb”… instead of “Mülleimer”? (Laughing here.) ;D
And shouldn’t the icon itself be tagged or colored green under OS 9?

Yet seriously now… wonderfully composed and extremely well written.
Reminded me so much of my old pre-press days & all those all-nighters
afterwards as a freelancer. How could anyone ever have existed before
without a second attached monitor for tool palettes?

Very well done indeed, Mat!

This was a good read. :) Thanks for writing this. As a non-DTP guy, I found this very educational and powerful.

Something like QuickWindow 2.1.2 to cycle back and forth with the many windows? :)

forumcredibility increased -> check
forcing IBM to create e600 compatibility at Power 9 -> pending
forcing Apple to release Mac OS 9 as Open Source -> planning phase

I never got used to this palett monitors. Tried it hard, and of course it made something possible in the past, but with the first 21" monitor I gave up, Sometimes I am using my old Eizo FlexScan S1931 as portrait monitor to get better impressions about pages before printing them or to read really long texts online.

For me, it became oh so easy... simply mousing extreme right to choose another tool
without adding any additional keystrokes or the "flash" of another window opening
to toggle back and forth between different screens. Saved time & keystrokes.

And my eyes! ;)

Also... with my head moving back and forth between the monitors (normally 3-4 feet apart)
I had to move my head slightly and change focus a little (which is better than that fixed
focus normally frowned upon by extended use) for "our" eyes. 8)
