Comment 30" (Score 2) 375

My favorite is a 30" 2560x1600. The vertical pixel count is very nice. The Koreans can deliver these at a reasonable price. If you have money you can get them for about 1K in a nice IPS flavor.

I don't like the 27" 2560's because the dot pitch is marginal for my below average eyesight.

And I have yet to find a 1920 x 1200 27".

Right now I am using a cheap pair of 27" 1920 x 1080, but I am definitely going to at least one 30" 2560x1600 in the next couple of months.

There is some logic to the use of these materials.

After all most of the life in aquatic environments is on or near the surface. The most important ecologies are the salt marshes and the top 200 meters or so of the ocean (epipelalogic zone) which is sunlit. It is where all the action is. 90% of life is found in this top layer. It is where the most complex and presumably vulnerable life forms are found.

So submerging the oil potentially reduces the harm that a spill may cause.

> there have been instances of Monsanto claiming that farmers who simply have their seeds in their field, even through natural spreading, owe them a fee

Really? Every case like this I've dug into involved some action by the farmer to collect and select seed.

So I'd be interested if you have a concrete example.

Well, you have two data points. The existence of all sorts of software designed to take advantage of information easily available on the internet, and a 'feeling' that programmers possess some special moral character. The answer to this conflict is obvious.

The idea that programmers have some special moral character is nonsense.
