You know, it might be a bright green line. I haven't powered it up in
years. The only reason I didn't pitch it is because it IS a genuine IBM
monitor (the 5151), and I didn't want to seperate it from its PC... which
I wanted to keep because it was the first "IBM PC".

I am fairly sure it is vertical. I remember when it started to die, I did
the Mac Plus analog board fix for it (whack it on the side), and that
would bring it back for a bit. Finally it just stopped coming back, and
stayed as a bright line.

Humm... maybe in November I will pull it out and see if I can get it
running. (I have too much work to do this month to get to the fun stuff).
