To be honest, I'm not sure why people use windows for games. You can get an xbox one x for $500 which is great value.. no bugs, plays great games, I bet faster to get gaming than a PC. Most monitors have two HDMI inputs now.

Then if you're doing high power computation you're probably looking at unix.

Then if you want a decent office PC for work I'd use linux in most cases (no OS based adverts, more power over setting the system up how you want it.. more stable once set up, less space on HD, certainly more productive).

I used to miss Excel VBA macros, but I don't really use macros in my current work. Can't comment on apple as too expensive for what you get and you're really restricted in having to buy into apple and nothing else.

Maybe windows machine is best for watching YouTube videos, though I guess most people do this on their Android phone now.

That's news to me, but not surprising. Do they also have a button for switching between them?

My ancient Asus monitors have VGA and DVI inputs. Primary connected to the computer's VGA port & secondary to HDMI via an HDMI to DVI convertor cable. No input switching capability that I know of, though. Maybe they'd just prioritize one input if both are being fed active signals.

yes but is it hotter in the summer or the city ? suffice it to say i was always asked if i walked to school or carried my lunch but these days if you walk 20 miles barefoot and in the snow, you'd have to be Clark Kent walking back to his fortress of solitude after a binge on red krytponite juice. am i right? 😱

MUDD: I lied.

NORMAN: But...

KIRK: He lied. Everything Harry tells you is a lie. Remember that. Everything Harry tells you is a lie.

MUDD: Now listen to this carefully, Norman: I am lying.

Putting that into a perspective, you are trapped in a room that has one door. There are two buttons and two men, one man next to each button. One button opens the door and the other blows you to smithereens. You are allowed to ask only one of the men only one question. One of the men always tells the truth and the other always tells lies.

How do you get out of the room without being blown up?

Ask either, "If I ask him (point to the other) if his button will blow me up, what would he answer?" If he answers, "No" then he's next to the good button.

The way I answer it is to ask either one, "if you were the other person, which button would you choose?", then take the opposite one.
