I have 2 19" monitors and a Matrox G400 Max card with dual-display under
Win2K. I do graphics work on this machine. In an application like
Photoshop, I set up my canvas on one monitor and all of my floating palletes
in the other. With a monitor dedicated to just my tools, I can expand them
as much as I need to, which comes in very handy for the Layer and Navigator
I can also run an app in one window and watch DVD's in the other. Very
convenient. The problem with the Matrox G400 is that it's not a very robust
card. But for affordable dual-monitor support, you can't beat it.

In gnuplot pre-3.6 (patchlevel 194, sigh) I specified a 'using 0:(1./$7)'
in a 'plot' command. Unfortunately, the first few rows of column 7 in the
file were zero, rendering the expression undefined. Gnuplot discards this
"value" in the plot, BUT it does not increase the row count. Thus, if I
overlay a second file with any entry being non-zero, the x-axis seems to be
displaced between the two plots.
I consider this behavior more than just confusing. If this behavior is
intended, please let gnuplot 3.6 issue a warning or something to tell the
user what happened!
Any action appreciated,
