  1. Why the fuck is my ass so sore today?

    What the fuck did I do yesterday?

      i warned you about having sleepovers with antman! you just wouldn't listen...

  2. Alright, change in plans.

    1440p would be nice because 1080p at 32 inches could look real blocky close up.  It has dual HDMI, displayport, and mini displayport, up to 75hz refresh rate, and just a whole lot more for less than 100 extra dollars.  The only issue is that the VESA mount isn't center, but this is over 2 pounds lighter than the ACER, so I don't see that being an issue with a monitor so light. 

     

    I am paying extra, so I may hold off on my SBC until mid month, but I'll see what I can do.

  5. I think that I found my monitor of choice for the wall mount. 

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0797M3SVG/ref=ox_sc_act_image_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

     

    Nice and big, is within the weight spec for the arm (the monitor is actually about 2 pounds lighter without the stand) matches the arm color (not really important but it's technically a plus) and has a 100x100 VESA mount right in the center (center mount is important for balance reasons, a lot of monitors this size has the mount on the bottom).

    I have a second GPU that has a VGA port as well, so I can hook this monitor up to my PC (especially handy since VGA is good when it comes to cable length, due to it being analog).

     

    Since I edited a status update with a picture that picture will show itself here as well.

     

    So have the VA IPS comparison.  VA left, IPS right.

  6. So, there's something that I would like to show that I have always felt with my VA panel. 

    20190629_100248.thumb.jpg.12c192e0890fa44a9e307cb632cce5e2.jpg

     

    Disgusting ghosting.  VAs are particularly bad with this due to the time that it takes for the LCD crystals to switch between on and off positions. 

     

    This is also a 144hz monitor, so let that sink in.

    For reference.

     

    And now.

    20190629_100333.thumb.jpg.6eacfe2b6f792f731f6661361dac1e48.jpg

     

    This is a 60hz IPS monitor.  While there is blurry motion, there is very little ghosting. 

    Now, don't take this as me saying that a 60hz IPS is better than a 144hz VA, the higher refresh rate VA is MUCH smoother, but that ghosting can make the screen look like it's covered in vaseline when doing quick camera movements.  While I love the contrast of VA, my next primary monitor probably won't be VA for this reason alone.  Hopefully we get better local dimming on IPS screens in the future. 

     

    EDIT: Just so it doesn't seem like I'm trashing VA too much, here's a shitty comparison pic.

     

    DSC_0006_resize.jpg

     

    Left is VA, right is IPS.  I think it's safe to say which one has better contrast. 

    1. _StrikE_

      _StrikE_

      Luckly for you IPS is now also capable of high refresh rates, so while i it costs a pretty penny, you can get a high refresh IPS panel monitor.

       

      Personally once i went IPS i could never use anthing else, also personally luckily i'm one of the few people who doesn't care about high refresh rates, and is still fine with it at 60-75Hz.

    2. Skanky Sylveon

      Skanky Sylveon

      @_StrikE_ High refresh IPS panels have existed long before high refresh VA panels existed.  High refresh VA is relatively new due to inherent ghosting limitations. 

       

      VA has 3x the contrast with IPS like colors with a slight hit to the viewing angle.  Due to that, they are seen in Samsung TVs a lot.  They are just slow monitors.

      @ARikozuM the first sunset I used manual settings with a tripod.

      Lowered the ISO, and slowed down the shutter speed along with a few more tweaks.  You can't get good night pics with a phone sensor without a shower shutter, but then you need a tripod.

    There, a bit higher, but the monitor that I'm getting is going to be a lot larger then that 7 inch joke of a monitor. 

     

    20190628_164536.thumb.jpg.a62e1d699776cb0853ecfcc276a02dc5.jpg

     

    I was going to ask which monitor arm everyone liked more, buuuut.

    20190628_164542.thumb.jpg.9f45a9a4c5abceb5dc828c426892d2fd.jpg

     

    The ends for the desk mounts are actually different from the wall mounts. 

    20190628_165623.thumb.jpg.8c8892933d72f5dbe76c98536083aa5f.jpg

     

    This is a rough approximation of my perspective, the mount is about 3 feet away, but that doesn't count the space that the monitor will take up in front of the arm.

     

    I am generally 2 1/2 feet away from my PC monitors, so the difference isn't terribly large.  This also doesn't stop me from getting a bed pillow chair thingy. 

     

    Also, the arm needs to be high enough so I can freely move my monitor out of the way if needed. 

     

    Next paycheck I'm going to get a monitor, I think that I'll go VA, I like the extra contrast of VA.

     

    Now whether to get an odroid n2, or h2.

  22. I just made a small modification to my keyboard. 

    20190626_093612.thumb.jpg.d6164929a15f0a46f2cb19cfaa230373.jpg

     

    I made the delete key red, since the delete key is normally on row 3, I can't use it unless I want that particular key to look shrunken. 

     

    While I have a few blanks, I think that visually distinguishing the delete key from everything else is kinda important due to what it does. 

    It matches the Miami theme well enough in my opinion (I have some blue blanks, but they don't match as well in my opinion).

  23. I would post this on tech news, but I don't think that this subject is appropriate. 

    https://kotaku.com/razer-brazil-cuts-ties-with-influencer-after-her-tweets-1835850900/amp

     

    I'll be frank, I don't agree with razer cutting ties with her.  I do find her reaction a bit extreme, but not unwarranted. 

    Although I do have to question if she thought that her comment about "riding the chat" could be implied in a sexual manner or not.  Sounds pretty sexual to me, but this is coming from the person who jokingly hits on everyone so perhaps I'm not the best judge in this situation. 

    1. DrMacintosh

      DrMacintosh

      From what I’ve seen, she just seems like a deplorable person that Razer just didn’t want associated with their brand.
