    I need to clarify part of the statement from my recent post being:-

    re "........despite getting "some flack" for the 15min diversion into and back out, by Maria whom I was taking shopping........."

    Maria has been quite Unwell recently, post having has major hand surgery. She has major allergies to pain relief Medication so 6weeks on she is drained from daily pain levels of 6 to 8 out of 10.

    We were just going shopping for food, and my unexpected diversion just made her remind me to pre-warn her before we go out, so she can be more prepared.

    She was NOT being BITCHY !!!!! She just expressed she wished I had pre-warned her as she was feeling very tied and just wanted to go Home to Grocery shop to home. After 18 years knowing her, there are still days I just mess up. Maria, I apologise.

    Heh, I dumped a lot of my CRT's a long time ago though i don't regret it, They were common as muck, Too big / Heavy and not worth a wet fart, Looking around i still have 8 CRT monitors which i keep but generally i use LCD's as it's much better for my poor vintage eyes. I wouldn't turn down a decent CRT though if i found one locally and cheap to keep or move on again.

    I believe this is a rebadged Philips 8833 monitor. A nice find

    Yes based on the 8833 it seem's, Could be a nice monitor to hang onto if it works, I have the Philips 8833 ll and it's a nice monitor.

    Amstrad CGA monitor for use with the Amstrad PC1640 / PC1512. I think
    Seem's to be a VGA, http://www.seasip.info/AmstradXT/hwcompat1.html
