For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
As usual I've received several well informed and useful off-line responses to a
query; this time it's apropos multiple monitors running off a DOS box with Win
'95. Unfortunately the emailer here (Lotus cc: Mail) has, overnight, decided
not to read my archived messages. When this is resolved I will post a summary.
From memory most people said that upgrading to Win 98 makes contiguous screens
possible as it is an in-built capability. Someone else suggested that a
particular card will make it possible on Win 95. Sorry I can't attribute these
comments or give fuller details at the moment.
In the interim thanks to those kind souls who posted to me/the list and I'll
back when I've got access to my mail files.
