Comment make the extra monitors detachable (Score 1) 161

I travel on vacation with not only my laptop, but a usb displaylink monitor. https://www.asus.com/us/Monito... Most times I don't need to troubleshoot anything with the servers at work, but sometimes the extra real estate comes in handy. I wouldnt mind having a way of detaching an extra monitor for day to day use, that way im not lugging aroung the extra weight, but also be able to reattach it and carry around as part of the laptop, without lugging around a completely separate piece of equipment.

Comment Terminology (Score 3, Informative) 303

I used to work as a trader for a major wall street firm. Slight correction in the terminology. If you are bidding the stock you are a buyer, If you are offering the stock you are a seller, regardless if the price you want to buy/sell at is on the bid or ask. If the bid/ask is $1.00/$1.01 and you offer $1.01, you are offering to sell at $1.01, and become part of the offered volume at $1.01. I know, I know, I sound like a bit of a prick pointing out the nuances. But you'd be in for a world of trouble in a pit or on a phone order offering a ton of stock if you were a buyer.
