Thanks very much - that's astounding! Unfortunately I'm finding the ARM7500 
model too unstable (I never tried it on my old machine so I don't know 
whether it's down to the change of venue) - things keep falling over until 
eventually the Task icon disappears and I can't even quit cleanly with 
Ctrl-Shift-F12. But I'm happy with 32k colours and an amazingly big work 
area in ARM610!

I can't use the 'Menu' area on the new touch-sensitive mouse (though a 
normal buttoned mouse works fine) - there may be an OS setting on the Mac 
that I've not worked out yet.

(I just saw the note about using 1440 instead of 1470 - in fact, 1470 worked 
fine but I've changed the definition anyway!)

Thanks again,
