    I'm getting used to the Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard that I bought a few hours ago. When I first used the keyboard, the gapless design got me making quite a lot of typos, but after a while, I stopped making almost all typos, and am appreciating the increased key travel and Windows-specific keys. It feels at home with a Windows computer...

    It's also very lightweight and is elevated slightly, unlike laptop keyboards, and I don't have to deal with a toasty keyboard, either. It's quite expensive, though, but I wasn't willing to risk an unknown brand.

    I think Microsoft and Logitech make nice hardware for normal use.

    I doubt I'll be able to cram a 1440p monitor on my desk anyway

    I can't use a glossy display at my desk because of reflections from the window. I've noticed that anti-reflective screen protectors wreck havoc on the display quality of screens with a PenTile matrix, as I've noticed with my Galaxy S.

    Pretty much the only games running acceptably well at that res = 2D games, browser games, and low-demand 3D games.

    I wonder why you went for a Yamakasi? Are monitors expensive at your place?

    The photo of the monitor from the bottom... wow.

    It's like a revelation.

    *just notices that he got a bit too excited and posted several VMs in a row*


    Hmm... The monitor was set up with dynamic contrast enabled out of the box, named "SmartContrast". For some reason I never noticed the backlight intensity changes, unlike the Samsung display I had with my now-dead desktop. Guess given time, even that becomes good and worthy of being left on.

    But still... *disables it*

    *sets up HDMI audio passthrough*

    *plugs in stereo speakers to the monitor's audio out*

    For a moment, when I pulled a black-to-white gradient on Paint.NET, I saw lots of steps.

    Zooming in reveals that the display is showing the difference between, well, pretty much every step, and that the display is displaying it as-is without dithering. All the ugly truths uncovered by a better monitor. This got verified when I went to monitor test sites. (Paint.NET is not capable of dithering gradients, unlike GIMP or Photoshop)

    Pretty much the only fault I have with the monitor is nitpicky - calibration is loaded using a separate program at boot, so the display uses the accurate colour profile after the computer boots completely, unlike how Windows "fixes" my MacBook Air's screen as soon as I log in.

    Seems like the HD3000 breaks no sweat in handling a 1080p desktop. Then again, anything these days won't.

    I've just done further testing, and I came up with zero dead or stuck pixels.

Your attitude isn't helping, I am not surprise you are from sydney, I am from Melbourne so be a bit more respectful with your words.
Yes, because Melbourne is clearly superior to Sydney and demands greater respect.

You made my day. Well, sort of.

Stilll on the way home from the shops, but the connection tour was great.

I met up with Eon-Rider there and we took on the various mini games that were part of the MotionPlus series. I've got to admit, the games were mostly great and intuitive, although the Virtua Tennis was really clumsy. Quite literally, the players occasionally trip over without warning. Maybe that was just me - Eon-Rider thrashed me. XD

I have to say the best games were the Fencing, which was a...

Okay, I want to start making blogs again, so Imma start with a Platinum Log, as it's holidays and nothing interesting is happening :D.

Beginning - Load from save in Canalave Gym

I entered the battle with Byron expecting it to be a tough battle, so I had my Magmortar sitting in the wings to roast his Steel Pokemon.

Well I went to a friend's the other morning, so I wasn't online yesterday.
Pretty awesome time, though. We (there were four of us) sat in a boat on their dam, for ages with coke and chips. We did a few other crazy things, like jumping of the roof into the pool and playing with fireworks.

Also watched a few movies: Tropic Thunder, Pineapple Express, Boogeyman 2 (lol, it's pathetic, considering it's supposed to be horror.)
Yeah, it was all good.

Uh, that was just to get your attention. If it did, post a comment saying so. :D

Um, it's raining, which is good - it keeps the weather cooler. (It was ~40% Yesterday.) Um, boring day at home. Yeah.

I might be going to a friend's place tomorrow, so that'll be interesting, although I won't be here. Hmmm. I might actually get a name change to my real name, if only it wasn't already taken by some noob with 3 posts and no activity since 2004.

Hmmm... I've achieved...
