    Some older monitors are good. Probably the more high end ones though. Some of the older cheaper ones can be a bit rubbish.

    When I posted that screenshot a few months ago, it was the first time I had got one of those blackmail spams. Now, several months later, I've had so many of them that they are starting to get boring.
