To investigate the properties of c = 1 matter coupled to 2d-gravity we have performed large-scale simulations ot two copies of the Ising model on a dynamical lattice. We measure spin susceptibility and percolation critical exponents using finite-size scaling. We show explicity how algorithmic corrections are needed for a proper comparison with theoretical exponents. We also exhibit correlations, mediated by gravity, between the energy and magnetic properties of the two Ising species. The prospects for extending this work beyond c = 1 are dressed.
