Small, High-Resolution LCD Monitors?

KatTran yes (370 comments)

You are already killing your desk space now with a 17" CRT. Any flat panel you get will give you so much more space than the CRT.

You have learned the dirty little secret of flat panel monitors; 19" monitors are the same as 17" monitors, but with bigger pixels. It is sad that this extends into the wide screen monitors as well, because a 19" wide is only 1440 x 900.

So, buy a 20" wide monitor. The Dell one does 1680 x 1050. I know it will take way less depth than the CRT, and I'm guessing that it will actually be smaller in all dimensions than the current monitor you have.

Herschel Space Telescope Opens For the First Time

KatTran Re:it is not the "largest evel launched into space (84 comments)

It is actually the largest telescope every launched into space. It has a larger mirror than Hubble. It is also true that it is the largest infrared telescope launched into space, but then a square is also a rectangle.

Perfecting a Tron Game

KatTran Re:!freeware (63 comments)

It is released under the GPL version 2, which last time I checked is pretty much the definition of "free software". It is a free as in speech, free as in beer, and free as in free software free.

Clicking on the "About" or "Download" pages on http://www.armagetronad.net/ will clearly show you that it is free.

Free! Free I say!

Is There a Linux Client Solution for Exchange 2007?

KatTran OpenChange (385 comments)

OpenChange is an open source MAPI client that supports all versions of Exchange up to and including 2007, it is native MAPI and thus does everything you would expect an Exchange client to do, and it does it a reasonable speed.


There is already an Evolution plug-in that will be mainlined into GNOME 2.24. However, you can currently get it for Fedora 10 and other platforms.

The current Evolution plug-in uses OWA web page scrapping and is really lame, and it most likely broke from web interface changes in 2007.
