Re: filmscanners: Still Having Trouble with Win2K

Larry: At the risk of asking you a question you may have already answered,
since I know you know very well which end of a computer is up, nevertheless,
the one thing that occurs to me is the color temp that you have the monitors
set for... could your new Dells somehow be overriding the color temp you have
them set for when you do your color calibration? Are they perhaps going into a
monitor profile different from the one you are creating? Just a thought from a
pre-espresso brain on Sunday morning after the "wonderful" time change...
