    Anyone in AKL area have a monitor calibration tool?

    My display is WAY off, and if I can borrow someone's calibrator that would be great. I'm having trouble lately while dev'ing the new version of APUG, I need to know my colors are correct. Thanks!

    Hehe...Someone's going to get slapped!

    p.s. - I have no tools for such a thing and am certainly not savvy enough to provide advice, just amused by the postings.

    They're only $200 for a good one, why not just buy one? Its something you'll need to use in the future to keep your screen calibrated anyway and is a cheap investment. I consider a calibrator to be the single most important thing to own if you're doing any kind of creative work on a computer, be it web design (as you want it for), illustration, graphic design, photo editing for scanned film or digital, etc. None of these things can be done successfully with a monitor that's not calibrated right.

    Yeah, you need to recalibrate at least once a month. Might as well just buy one.

    Yeah might have to bite the bullet and get one off ebay, NZ marks up electronics to no end. $200 on Ebay can be $600NZ local.
