I told you it was lame. > Last time I did that, I just had wires dangling from the connector. I left them in place after I was done and then wondered why I kept losing data. Couldn't be the wires shorting out or anything. ObHack The terminal I am using uses a poor little 6502 that has to drag a bitmap around with it. Screen updates are done when the processor has free time. This causes a nasty 'slink' or 'wave' when scrolling. I changed the display driver so that if there was no other work to do it would move the bitmap for LF's instead of making it redraw all of the characters, which takes alot longer.
