you typed '+univbe' in altavista or similar and it gave you unipower?
impressive searching there. try www.scitechsoft.com because it's been renamed
display doctor for the past 3 or 4 versions now.

it also disables itself after 21 days :) possibly they want you to register
it or something? ;)

i've never heard any of these claims about speeding up duke nukem, unipower
was surely the power management module for doing the 'green' functions of
your monitor and nothing to do with speeding things up.

the newest version is 5.3a.
