    Yeah, EGA was largely irrelevant. Hercules was thankfully just before my time, and it was VGA that pushed CGA out of all the machines I had access to. Mind, the high-res VGA mode (640x480x4) was just a slightly higher resolution version of EGA’s top mode.

Come to think of it, “Reader Service Number X” is also something I haven’t seen jammed together in a very long time. Man, you make me feel old.
