Yepper, Zane. In fact, I have one of 'em. Haven't plugged it in to see
what's up, but I have one. Actually came in a skid of computers
from a Mo auction after they closed down a facility. Fairly plain
beige box with batwings on it.

BTW, and completely OT, but I finally have the Mac/Paris rig up
and running with THREE 1710AV monitors, and it's a thing of
beauty. I also am installing a separate but complementary app on
my 8500 that will use two monitors, both 14" Trini's, for a total of 5
plus the one on the wintel box.
