(edit) that's 2400x1920 in portrait mode, or 4h x 3.2 w
I use two 24" 1920x1200 screens in portrait mode side by side. That gets me 1900x2400 viewable with a vertical bar down the center. They are IPS panels so the viewing angle is fine in that orientation.
Putting the two monitors side-by-side in landscape or mixed was not going to happen at my desk so this was just sort of a happy discovery. With the nearly square aspect, it fits into the corner where the old CRT used to put it's backside and I still get lots-o-dots to look at.
I usually end up working with 4 windows tiled equally across the two panels, or a document maximized on one side while working on the other.
I spent entirely too much time scaling and cropping an antique world map with the side-by-side globes to perfectly span the two screens with the fold lost in the vertical bar. If nothing else it is a real attention-getter.
Si. OH WOW
Imagine he was in an accident and rendered unconscious with his car still powering the jamming device. Assume it was a single car accident, no need to be cruel to others. Anyhow, nobody can call for help and nobody thinks to switch off the ignition in his vehicle which is clearly not running. If it jammed first responders communication equipment too, all the better. He could enjoy a nice long wait for an ambulance.
It sits there in standby waiting for print jobs that almost never come, then with a wheeze the top fan blows out the accumulated dust, the lights dim briefly and I get my printout like it was 1999.
No shatter. It's spun carbon fiber. You end up with a big bowl of carbon spaghetti.
No room for disk brake on the front as the motor is a massively oversized hub. The goal is to put a disk brake on the rear and a heavy-duty cantilever on the front.
Until I can justify the price of the battery pack I want, it doesn't matter anyway.
Based on a steel mountain bike frame, it's decidedly INelegant and heavy, but super-effective on a commute that rarely exceeds 20 MPH by car.
I got a solid 7 years out of a 36V 10AH NiMH battery pack before it croaked. Now it is resting in the basement until I decide to re-power it with some flavor of lithium.
In the original post I asked if the Golden Island machinery motor was any good. Neither the motor nor the controller gave me a day's trouble though the original wire was too thin.
I also asked about lead-acid batteries. They were garbage. Too heavy and the power faded below a useful level long before they were considered discharged. I got a good deal on an NiMH pack and was very pleased with it overall.
I have since lashed up a 48V test pack and really enjoyed the power it gives. The original controller seems to work fine at 48V, the capacitors are all rated 60v.
The best thing I did was add a Watts-UP meter so I can keep an eye on remaining capacity and monitor power flow.
The most alarming thing about the bike is the brakes which are marginally adequate for the combined weight of bike and rider. They need to be upgraded before I hit the road again.
Frankly, I thought I'd never be able to play 4K video on my system.
Windows Media Player is completely unable to handle it and YouTube@4K is jerky at best, even with all the tweaks in Chrome turned on.
I am running a Radeon HD7700, Seiki SE50UY04 and a Core 2 Quad with Windows 7 x64 and the latest Catalyst and VLC.
Once I turned on hardware decoding in VLC it played flawlessly. I can stream YouTube videos to VLC but I can't get them to send 4K yet.
Finally some 4K content for my Seiki. Normally I just use it as a computer display. VLC has experimental support for hardware accelerated decoding which is absolutely necessary to play back 4K video.
It looks great, nice work folks.
That's the problem with randomness, you can never be sure.
but it is a 36" Proton CRT with native 720p and 1080i. Lovely picture but it weighs around 250 lbs and wedged so thoroughly into the entertainment center that I might need to cut it out.
It came standard with 512k but could be upgraded to 640k by inserting individual DIP RAM chips into sockets on the motherboard.
Of course the 1000TL had DOS 3.1 and Deskmate in ROM so you could decide to count that as well.
I had Hayden's Stimulating Simulations and a big pile of magazines to copy programs out of. That's pretty much like ROM.
You underestimate my next battery pack. It will be in the neighborhood of $800 when you add in the battery management board and quick charger. I have some lead acid on it now for testing the controller at 48 volts but that is impractical for real use.
