1280X1024 is natural for a 21 inch monitor.

1280*800. Does that make me wierd?

On a side note, I just figured out how to make my screen rotate the image, but I'm not sure why I'd ever want to do that.

I get to do 1920 x 1200 at work, and 1280x1024 at home.

My Boss just got a 30" lcd that does 2560x1600...like he needs that much resolution

I run 1024X768 that is as big as my HP flat panel can run. Plus everything is just the right size this way. I like the 1024X768 its big enough to read but is small enough to save on space.
