Used to have 3 dfiferent monitors, ended up selling my philips 27'' monitor to a friends friend lol.

 

Still got the same 2 monitors now and no third monitor.

 

Gotta find out how to hang the pc below my desktop table and perhaps one day i can get a third monitor..

 

or upgrade to ultrawide one day.

From a glance at the thumbnail, I was wondering if that was Nick or something. But if the the Nick we know of is Nick Light, Clarence would be Nick Superduty.

Ok people... STOP READING BOOKS BEFORE BED! It's actually bad for you (in a way), your brain associates reading with sleep, this means if you read at any other time (like say you take the bus/train or even driving to a new place needing to read the signs - tho this is not very likely, unless you are exhausted at which time maybe you shouldn't be driving anyways) you might feel tired after doing so, compromising your ability to function to the best of your abilities! Reading before bed is while a good thing to tell your body it's bed time, so is going in for a shower brushing teeth and doing an actual nightly routine, reading a book before work will stimulate your brain far more than reading at night, trust me if you are that kind of person who likes reading don't read before bed... If you don't do any sort of reading outside of night time, by all means it's a great easy cheap way (actual books not estuff), but seriously try reading in the morning and find better habits for night time... Making your brain active while you sleep isn't needed lol... I used to read books before going to bed then stopped, I now enjoy the books more than reading before going to sleep. I get it for kids, but it's a habit that doesn't need to exist, kids should enjoy the books not associate them with sleep.

Knowing a few accountants, firms are great but they don't always pay the best. He likely join LMG for the steady work equal or better pay and maybe better benefits or closer to home. Working for a firm can also lead to significant overtime (or very large companies for that mater) esp at years and months/quarter ends, this leaves minimal time for his other clients, so by working for one place even if a little less, keeping his side clients could mean more money in the end with less stress etc.

Personally I've gone triple, and I can agree I won't go back, but equally I don't understand the hate Linus has towards the 24" esp for a triple setup... If you want dual go bigger if you want single go insane, but want triple? Don't go higher than 27 imo esp if you're not going high pixel count, when I set mine up I became even more confused as to why Linus would mock a 24" triple for home use. I'll take detail over size any day as a gamer.

 

I'm guessing you owned 2 same sized monitors and the "oddball" 27"

Did you really just type up that whole paragraph emphatically telling people to stop reading before bed and the best concrete reasoning you could come up with is that it "might" make people feel tired afterward? What even was the point of all this? Just let the guys enjoy their reading time with their kids.

I like how the Intel part was the quickest bit of this extreme tech upgrade. Just pop in a new laptop, replace monitors (wiring instructions sold separately), and you're good to go! 🙂 Am I the only one amazed that Linus didn't break anything in this video, btw? No one's bed, no one's parts, nothing. He had that look at that speaker setup though, like "Oh crap, what'd I break now?" though. 😄

With accounting its extremely helpful to be able to view all the documents you require simultaneously instead of flipping back and forth - saves time especially with data entry, alleviates frustration, allows you to figure out problems faster. Running VMs won't really help with that.

 

Clarence was top notch. More Clarence pls.

Pretty sure Virtual desktops aren't VMs since the whole thing is swapping quickly between programs as though the desktop itself was a tab in your browser.

It's not. It helps me relax and slow my mind. I can read otherwise just fine.

People say watching TV right before bed is bad, but I usually have Netflix or Disney+ running on my tablet when I'm in bed. It's sometimes hard to go to sleep without it. Books though? Used to, but not anymore.

The point is to have multiple screens' worth of information laid out before you, so you don't have to Alt+Tab between different windows (or virtual desktops) that all compete over the same pixels.
