What about multi-headed PCs?

I have 3x (1280x1024) displays plugged in a horizontal configuration.

I guess that makes me a 3840 x 1024 display user.

re: multi-headed

teehee. I think that falls under Other.

Wow, cool.

1024x768 maxed out :'(

Well at the moment I am stuck on my laptop, with a monitor max of 1024x768. Crying

Still better than the first laptop my dad got, win95 stuck at 800x600 (that brings back memories)

(then again I like it coz I am traveling a lot with it so need the portability in my system as a priority)

Makes me sad though being a student and I have 4 house mates with flat screen desktops ranging from 1280x1024 to 1600x1200.
Can't believe the best one £100 21" wide screen lcd monitor from ebay in perfect condition.

Then again I am thinking about making a nice gaming rig with the moneys I hope to get from finding a summer job, mmmm... a custom built linux box, still I could just dip into my student overdraft Wink

My latest LCD Monitor is 1680 x 1050. Absolutely love it.

re: Resolution

re:re: Resolution

Well, with these 57 year-old eyes, it was a priority.

Bang & Olufsen has collaborated with HiFiBerry to create the open source, $189 Beocreate 4 channel amplifier kit.

  • Best Web Browser
    When the Firefox team released Quantum in November 2017, they boasted it was "over twice as fast as Firefox from 6 months ago", and Linux Journal readers generally agreed, going as far as to name it their favorite web browser. A direct response to Google Chrome, Firefox Quantum also boasts decreased RAM usage and a more streamlined user interface.
  • Share Exactly What You See On-Screen With Firefox Screenshots
    A “screenshot” is created when you capture what’s on your computer screen, so you can save it as a reference, put it in a document, or send it as an image file for others to see exactly what you see.
  • What Happens when you Contribute, revisited
    I sat down to write a post about my students' experiences this term contributing to open source, and apparently I've written this before (and almost exactly a year ago to the day!) The thing about teaching is that it's cyclic, so you'll have to forgive me as I give a similar lecture here today. I'm teaching two classes on open source development right now, two sections in an introductory course, and another two in a follow-up intermediate course. The students are just starting to get some releases submitted, and I've been going through their blogs, pull requests, videos (apparently this generation likes making videos, which is something new for me), tweets, and the like. I learn a lot from my students, and I wanted to share some of what I'm seeing.
