Comment Re:bitcoin is money, that's its only function (Score 0) 149

Farts are not a commodity, *farts have no intrinsic value*, which means that outside of their use as money they have no other uses. They are used to transfer, store, account for stinkiness. It is as pure money as it gets, however because it has no intrinsic value at all (it cannot be used for anything outside of stinking, nobody needs it for anything but for its quality of being money) its ability to store value is questionable.

so there came 800x600 (IBM later called that XGA) and then a succession of "Super VGA" "standards" (as in the joke, there are so many of them) all with different resolutions higher than 800x600, and some supporting wide aspect ratios.

You have that backwards. SVGA was 800x600. The XGA standards start at 1024x768 and go up from there.
