Comment: Ah Tucows... (Score 3, Insightful) 65

Ah...Tucows...
Download anything from them and it will be loaded with extra adware with a very tricky sequence of clicks to not install any of it. Yes, this even means not agreeing what looks like a license agreement, but is actually an offer to install crap.

I'd probably take even Comcast over them.

Comment: Aspect ratio (Score 1) 567

by Dwedit (#48573661) Attached to: The Case For Flipping Your Monitor From Landscape to Portrait

Portrait displays were great when monitors were still 4:3 aspect ratio rather than 16:9. You could get a desktop width of 1024, and be just like a standard monitor, except much taller. You can even see entire pages in your word processor. But if you rotate a 16:9 monitor, it just looks absurdly tall and hard to deal with.
