He works in a healthcare-related field.

33 days is a lot! Them's good benefits.  A few years ago I calculated that I took off 54 days in one year.  I was literally on vacation 1 day a week for the whole year. It felt great.  All about that work/life balance.

On that note, I leave for South East Asia in 5 days.  Haven't been in like a year and a half. Pretty eggcited.

I made out with a substitute teacher in my classroom during my prep. I now have to go back to teaching kids about World War 2 in 5 minutes.

In retrospect that was a bad idea to do at work in case this girl's turns out crazy.

Finally worked out in itunes how to get unassigned albums assigned to an artist.

Now all my Shakira is in one place, phew.

what do you mean by unassigned? you mean the album artist field wasn’t filled in?

I just wish I could figure out how to make itunes display the album artwork of a song when I click on it like it used to. not the crappy new-ish version which just displays all the artwork all the time.

On some older albums the artist, writer etc fields are mixed up, or they just have 'mixed' or 'various' so it gets dumped in Compilations.

Next to see if I can upload my own images for artist, artwork etc.

well that's to do with the bad ID3 tags of the files you're adding to itunes. are you burning CDs, or what?

modifying all of those fields is a trivial task on itunes.

you can add whatever album artwork you like; no artist-wide artwork though, as far as i know. i think it pulls those from apple music/store.

just select all the songs in an album and go into the info. there's an option to find album artwork (using apple store) or to add your own manually (from your local machine). it's one of the most basic features of any tag editor.

Well, I just remembered the existence of this website after 14 years or so. Sad to see that it's gone!

Kind of mad thinking about how long it's been since a Battlefield title could keep my attention for as long.

I think he ordered a 900Hz Chinese gaming monitor instead.

i do. i'll dump a bunch of thoughts about it in the tech open thread.

the ultrawide benQ monitor has paid for itself just in terms of an office work-horse, really. the 'eye care' features have been way more of a benefit to me than the uber-leet gaming 100hz/freesync/latency stuff. the way it auto-adjusts the brightness and colour profile using the front-facing light sensor is *mwah*. i'm considering getting benq's attachable desk lamp for it, as well.

Think how much fun it was doing 8 hour days on Pro-E with first generation LCDs.
God that was shit.

The colour selection and rendering seemed designed to give people epilepsy.

haha. i don't think the colours on this monitor are as good as the 24 dell IPS i've given to my other half. the same-size dell IPS in ultra-wide was nearer £1000 and had no concessions to 'gaming' like high refresh rate. but i'm happy with this benq panel. the overall quality seems very high. it seems as though if you throw enough money at a monitor, you can get a decent chef's selection of features that combines the best of IPS/VA/TN panel.

this my first ever screen that is technically a 'WQHD' panel. it's not entirely clear to me what that is, other than the latest and greatest thing in consumer monitors (OLED notwithstanding). it looks good, even though for most of my working day it's on about 15% brightness.

tl;dr just a fancy name for resolution.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphics_ … resolution and in less detail on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Display_resolution

There are so many of them to account for that the continued use of these letter strings as classification seems a little bullheaded. I stopped using them after SVGA because I thought they were losing their descriptive power.

maybe i’m citing the wrong acronym. i was under the impression that this screen is a hybrid type somewhere between an IPS and a TN panel.

I mean as far as terms like WQHD is concerned (when you said you weren't clear what that was), which is something apart from LCD panel types.

screen resolution marketing gibberish wrote:

SVGA was like 800 x 600 but the name stuck with consumers and they were referring to it while shopping some time after 800 x 600 was supplanted by higher resolutions like 1024 x 768 (XGA) and even to 1920 x 1080 (FHD).

WQHD (aka QHD, 1440p): 2560 x 1440, 16:9 aspect ratio
WQHD+ (aka others): 3840 x 1600, 12:5 aspect ratio

One of the ones in between those two:

QHD (aka QHD+, others): 3200 x 1800, 16:9 aspect ratio
Ugh.

As an aside, I had a TN (I think it was) 1920 x 1200 screen for the longest time. I'm sure it said "WUXGA" somewhere on the box.
