No problem, I'm on the PowerMac list as well to cover my PPC unit, as
well as the Max and UK ones.  No rush in upgrading, I've not mastered
the Mac OS I have yet!

iCab, that rings a bell, but not relating to Macs for some reason - I
really must get one on my desk permanently.

Interestingly enough, I've now tracked down the manual for my monitor -
just needed to search on "Apple Mulitple Scan 15" instead of "Apple
Multiscan 15", it makes all the difference!  I haven't got it working
with my LC475 for some reason - may be the way I have my converters set,
I'll have to check tomorrow.  Now I've tested the screens properly I'm
wondering why I bothered - one has some burn in (although not really
noticable if you have a patterned background) and the other seems to go
a bit yellow towards the right side (although otherwise it's pretty
crisp).  I may have to ditch them and use a VGA screen instead - not
that that's a major issue, I need the space!
