Matrox Geekitude

April 21, 2009

In my “Box ‘O Junk” I’d been holding onto a 10-year-old, 4mb Matrox Millennium PCI video card. It was just too good to throw away, and I’d use it someday.

“Someday” actually came.  Our LAN administrator needed to build a new server rack control desk, with three monitors to manage two racks.  An extra video card was needed, and that old card was on the HCL.  It works great.  The three monitors share common space and you’d never guess that there’s 7 years difference between the two video cards that control them. 

But referring to it as a “classic video card”, well that was just overly geeky.  At least I didn’t say it in Klingon.

    I “loved” Matrox cards … they were expensive enough to increase my commissions when I was in sales.  But not as costly as Artist cards.  Ahh, those were the days.  :-)
