A positive Dub-Tee-Eff from Reddit.

 

Comments from the poster:

 

”It's not very aesthetic, I just like having a lot of uninterrupted screen workspace without being constrained to windows being in fixed subareas like with other 3+ monitor setups I've seen. I'm generally a minimalist hence the floor setup so was almost going to call it that, but not sure that label would be fair seeing as it's, well, dual 75" 4K TVs...”

 

“People keep asking about specs but it's really not very exciting, driving dual 4K displays for general computing use-cases does not require much grunt at all. I repurposed my old gaming PC from a long time ago to be this HTPC, it's just an i7 4790 and a GTX 970 and they are not working hard at all to run both at 60hz.”

 

Re: left screen, “It's just a regular VESA TV stand, I just mounted the brackets on the TV sideways.”

 

”Productivity is through the roof. Even when noodling about on small side projects I find you so quickly end up with so much things open that you're constantly flipping between, so to have multiple terminals, text editors, reference documentation, version control, etc, immediately accessible is, honestly, life changing.”

2Degrees have recently been advocating, and advertising, that people should spend less time on their devices and interact and be more sociable with the people around them, so......

 

........they've created an app for it.🤦‍♂️

 





I've joined a carpenters course.  Haven't made anything yet....we've only just begun.

For comparison, the Apollo program cost about 97c per mm (in 2020 NZ$).

Lineal.  If the road is 30 odd metres wide on average and the $46 was per square mm then the total cost would have been $37,500,000,000,000🤑.

Yeah but who? 

 

The penalties that the companies holding up the completion of the project were levied are eye-watering.

So about the same as the current estimate for the Petone to Ngauranga cycleway then.

Given that he has survived 3 assassination attempts, it was a smart move to get some appearance-altering cosmetic surgery. Not so smart to show it on TV news though.
