curved lines?

Some 16x9 widescreen LCD's stretch modes will exaggerate the horizontal stetch of a 4:3 source picture more closer to the sides. It makes 'talking heads' in the middle look normal somewhat compared to the normal even stretch.

Things usually end up in the dump for good reason...


but nice find - weird that there's no pincushion effect on the edges - it's like there's horizontal consistency but the scanlines have variable spacing depending on where on the screen they are.

Yes indeed and a guy who sold / ran a store you can imagine just how creative the little (and older) blighters were with their typing...Shy, they were not!!


On a sweeter note, I saw Tron in Canada back in the day and the next day we went to a big mall in Toronto and walked around the shops, in almost all the computer shops someone had typed "ACCESS PROJECT CLU" on the Vic20's etc :)


Made me smile so much then and even now..

Yes, no self test on the older machines, you got Memo Pad instead...a simply useless item if ever there was one :)


(waiting for someone to extol the virtues of it now) :)

oh okay... um sure...


It was used instead of a note on the fridge... the note on the fridge was never seen, but the note on the computer was 'always' seen..
