14s are fine for just writing. We had to kick and scream and bring in
outside design business from other academic depts to raise the money to buy
two 20" Mirror screens (one of which died yesterday and is en route to
Minnesota). A big screen is *essential* for graphic design and page layout
and any boss who tells you otherwise is a cheap SOB.

You think the government is bad, try a university (it's all the more ironic
that USC held a $100,000+ black-tie bash last night to kick off a big
fundraising campaign, and distributed thousands of $3-each brochures
designed by an expensive outside agency that are the ugliest damn things.
Yet try to suggest upgrading our ca. 1991 Quadras to Powermacs, and all of
a sudden "there's no money"). Grrrr.

Incidentally, we got our monitors from DTP Direct for about $1100 each.
What a deal!
