Lucky bastid! I don’t know if I’d be able to handle that much goodness. The question is, of course, are you running 1920x1440 on both, or are you running some sissy resolution like 1600x1200? ;)
Amen man. I’ve been using a dual-rig display since '01, and every time I get onto a computer with only one monitor, I feel as if a part of me, the part of me that is productive, has been impaled on a stake or something.
There just isn’t enough room on a 1024x768 desktop for 5 IE windows, 3 chat programs, outlook, a shitload of IMs, and Winamp. Throw photoshop on top of all that, and on anything but a dual-monitor rig, you’re fucked.
I use the same thing at work. I merge the two windows desktops together with synergy2 so that I don’t have to pull out the extra keyboard and mouse. I’m still waiting for a Mac OS X port of the client so that I can get rid of my Mac’s keyboard and mouse too. It would be awesome to see my mouse cursor float seemlessly between the three monitors on my desk.
Not nowadays. I haven’t had to disable my secondary display for a single game.
Might have something to do with how you set up the monitors. I’m not using nView or anything. Could be those utilities that tell windows to pop up in certain spots and so on screw things up. With the XP defaults, I’ve had no problems.
You must be playing boring games or something. Several of the awesome games that I play can’t deal with dual monitors because the mouse cursor doesn’t hit an “edge” on the right and doesn’t scroll the view correctly.
Well, I have a tendency to keep notepad open while doing my computing, which amounts to 24/7. By the time I do a reboot 14 or 20 days later, I’ll have a bunch of shit in the file and can’t remember what is important and what isn’t. So the packrat I am, I inevitably save those to my desktop, in the hopes that in the future, I’ll go back and extract the necessary info.
The file create date on FUCK.txt is…Tuesday, Aug 12, 2003. :D
I think I’ve stumbled across your homenode at some point. Ain’t e2 grand? I haven’t had a chance to node on there in ages. One of these days I’ll spit out 17 nodes in a few quick days so I can finally get my Ching! on.
