I'm working on an online form that people will use to reserve our auditorium. The printed form I'm working from contains this advice:

"If you bring your own laptop to use with our system the resolution must be set at 1024x768 and 60mhz."

Isn't that funny?

I'd hate to see the electricity bill.

Am I the only nerd who gets it?

Nah, this nerd gets it too--unfortunately, probably better than anyone else. I'm not wondering about the electricity bill, but trying to figure out how you could watch the thing... being that SLOW :-)

(he said "m" not "M"--yea, i'm a dork :P )

60 mHz = 6 Hz? That would be hard on the eyes.

No, that's not right. That would be .06 Hz, or one refresh every 17 seconds.

Right?

Exactly... gotta remember your metrics :-)

60 MHz = 60000 Hz
60 Hz
60 dHz = 6 Hz
60 cHz = .6 Hz
60 mHz = .06 Hz
