Keith - I wondered if anyone would make a comment about my new work computer set-up. I've thought about posting a picture of it, with one of my un-resized pictures spread across the two monitors. The neat thing about it is that a 30 x 42 inch drawing shown on justone monitor is pretty legible without zooming in at all.

I was curious so I went to Dell's website yesterday - the monitor had a $1100 price tag on it (it's come down, it had been over $1400).

No you mustn't!

It wouldn't be safe. Just imagine the envy it would generate. All that pent-up raw emotion; well, who knows what kind of damage that could do. :-)

When considering your picture size for posting you also have to consider the board's software itself. Space is wasted on margins and column widths. The "Author" column is too wide if you ask me. It has to be more than 25% of the available column space. That's space that could be used for the "Post" column.
some of that is because of the 200dpi avatars. mines 150 but i think i'll cut it down to 100..

Well, I was using a 19" Xerox monitor. I got the standard format, as the widescreen ones weren't very high, and didn't look right for photos.

Then I discovered a program called MaxiVista, which enables you to use a laptop as a second screen. So I tried the demo and liked it, so bought the program - very rare for me. So I had the photos on the 19" and the menus etc on the laptop screen.

Then today, I decided that I needed a post Christmas treat, so I have bought a 24" widescreen monitor.

It really is awesome, the size difference. 1920 x 1200.

Works real well with Guild Wars as well!!!

On this pc at my parents' house I use a 19 inch CRT at 1280x1024


At my apartment in Gent (where I study) I have my 20 inch TFT at 1440x1050, great for watching movies


On neither I have to scroll to view an 800 pixel high image. 900px is pushing it...

It all depends where I am.

At home -crt 19" - 1280x1024 or the laptop lcd 1280x800
At work - dual monitor 2 x 19" lcd 1280x1024

have been thinking on getting something larger for home but that's just thinking.
