Oops on t=227 ; mistakes like this happen.  It's the thought that counts.

It's cool this is still in use today.  The ST with mono monitor was perfect
for business uses in the 80s. Easy on the eyes 70hz and pretty crisp
resolution for the size.  (I.e.  equivalent to people who use 1080p with
24-27" monitor sizes).

Whenever I use an ST (or an Amiga) and it's been a while I always feel a
sense of guilt and worry about turning it off via power switch without
first "shutting down". Lol.
