*ptooey*  That was the sound of me spitting out shoe leather.

I would very much like to know how that came to pass, and what vid h/w
you're running - mostly so that I can mark it down as Something I'll
Never Buy.  (No offense intended.)

Seriously, that's unique - can't say I've seen anything like that since 24
bit capable video hardware went on the market.  (Is this on a rig built
for gaming?)

Let me know when your ear regains its original physiognomy.
