DispcalGUI is a GUI front end for ArgyllCMS dipcal. Hence the name.
DispcalGUI was written by Florian_Hoch
I wrote ArgyllCMS.

Right. I knew it was a front end and that you were different people, which is why I thought it was strange when you said 'dispcal is part of argyll'. I thought that when people said "dispcal" it was shorthand for "dispcalGUI". I downloaded dispcalGUI because I wanted a fast way to get a profile out to see if it was Xrite's software causing my MacBook issue or not, so I hadn't really learned how argyll itself worked yet. (To be honest, I'm probably going to stick with argyll in the future now that I've seen it, it gives me a lot more control).

But anyway, name confusion aside, I'm still wondering if there's a set of best practices when dealing with old monitors, or if I should just pick something that looks good and call it a day.

it has a certain smooth-brained appeal
