where do you get “nice large‟ moniters? I use a c.43cm at home
and a c.30cm at work, and would love to have a larger one (esp.
if I could see on it a readable A4-sized image with "adequate"
screen area left over). such monitors exist, the Blit I used
to use had one, but it cost c.7000 USD!
TV-wise, there's an issue that monitor pixels are square(-ish),
whilst TV's (esp. NTSC?) are rectangular. this can obviously be
compensated for --- e.g., I do watch the odd DVD on my monitor
at home (mplayer(1) is great!) without any apparent video/visual
problems --- but its one of those niggles which, I am lead to
understand, is Makes Things Difficult™.
