The Machine Room is Back!
This is the recovered Machine Room from 2005. Please don't expect wonders. The look and feel of this site is nine years old, and so is its code. Some of the functionality has been recovered while the rest of the site is modernised and restructured. Watch this space!

Yet another unusually shaped chart. This one shows how graphics resolution has progressed over time. The reason for the graph's stability is that all graphics modes of all computers are shown here. Since most computers, even today, have low resolution graphics modes for backwards compatibility, games and what not, the average resolution ends up being more or less stable! Since graphics resolution is a two-dimensional quantity, this chart shows screen area in pixels.
