Small, High-Resolution LCD Monitors? 370

An anonymous reader writes "I'm a veteran user of an old 17" Dell Trinitron CRT monitor. I run it at 1400x1050 with an 80Hz refresh rate — about as high as it goes before it'll go out of the monitor's scan range. More recently I've been looking to finally upgrade to an LCD monitor but found that, for the most part, every 17" monitor on the market runs natively at 1280x1024, as does every 19" monitor — I have to go for a 20" to go higher. Now yes, I know I'm complaining about just 120 pixels horizontal and 26 pixels vertical, but my laptop's 15" display runs natively at 1400x1050. Is there any standalone monitor on the market that'll natively do higher than 1280x1024 without killing my desk space?"

Comment This is happening to me.. (Score 1) 502

For the last couple of weeks certain pages have been behaving exactly like this for me (Sadly, I am a comcast customer, there is no other option in my building). Specifically, the ESPN "Scoreboard" pages usually timeout 2 or 3 times before they actually load up. These pages likely generate a lot of AJAX requests for each game on this page, so that would create quite a few TCP connections...

Submission + - Buring seawater claims light up the web (

An anonymous reader writes: Claims that seawater can burn when zapped by radio waves are sweeping the web. New Scientist is reporting that John Kanzius, an inventor in the US, discovered the phenomenon by accident while developing a cancer treatment based on radio waves. The thinking is that the radio waves somehow weaken the bonds in seawater causing it to dissociate and that the burning is the result of hydrogen being given off. Kanzius speculates that it will be possible to run a car engine in this way. Presuming all this is correct, the big unanswered question is whether the phenomenon produces more energy than it eats up.

Submission + - Warfighters Use Wikis, Military Mashups & Web (

jg21 writes: Forget Wikipedia; according to this article the military and intelligence technology communities have now spawned Intellipedia, used by individuals with appropriate clearances from the 16 agencies of the United States intelligence community. Even more intriguingly, Web 2.0-style mashups are being used to develop integrated battlespace management and situational awareness systems and that the Defense Intelligence Agency has deployed a suite of 13 different commercial metadata extraction and tagging services in order to inject greater semantic meaning into its data. War, in other words, is going Web 3.0.
