RE: [fhctech] Re: where do you go on Familiyl search.org to check temple ordinances?
- You don't necessarily have to shell out big bucks for a card that supports
two monitors- in many cases you can use multiple single-monitor cards that
you may already have laying around (or in an older computer). Currently I'm
running 3 displays from one dual-port AGP and one single-port PCI card, and
I've previously had up to 5 video cards installed at a time. I've been
using this handle little feature since Win98, and I completely agree that
it's *much* easier doing many things, genealogy included. There's a
Microsoft KB article for those who haven't tried before.
