6 X ATI Sapphire Radeon 7000

6 x 7" 800x480 (can do 1600 x 1200)

:shock:

Holy cow, I want...

...what do you use them all for?

what any good geeks uses 3x2 monitor setup for....  porn

There all touch screen displays, they are used for GPS, sonar, range finder, communications control, WiFi/ satellite system control, audio control and a bunch of other stuff.

If you want a cheaper version (not touch screen) just mod some PSone screens as they are only about $10 used and buy some ATI Sapphire Radeon 7000’s as they are cheap PCI graphics cards ($20 each). If you use Linux you can have as many users as you do graphics cards using it at the same time, all with their own desktop.

That's a pretty nice setup, I've thought about using PSOne screens for ages but last I looked they weren't worth buying second hand since they were still fairly expensive (at least for something I was about to chop to pieces) but I might take another look in to that again.

I just looked them up and even brand new there only £30.

I have two pretty crappy 1280x1024 LCD monitors that I've had for years. I was going to buy a shiny new 24" 1920x1200 LCD but then it turned out that spending the money on prostitutes and drugs was more fun.

On another note it's almost exactly 4 months since I disappeared just before hilariously saying I was definitely going to the meetup in London, paying the deposit, buying a train ticket then completely forgetting about it since I hadn't been on the Hak5 IRC or forums for a while. Did I cost someone some money doing that? I'll paypal them the money if I did. How'd it go anyway?

Good to be back anyway (actually I'm kind of indifferent about it but I'm bored as hell, so meh), refreshed from my break from Hak5 and hopefully less of a fucking cunt, what the hell was wrong with me before? Reading some of my old posts it seems I was a complete dick. I think all the idiotic posts got to me.

I realise this post is almost completely off-topic but I wanted to write it somewhere and making a topic for this would be a bit narcissistic I think. Oh, and is IRC down or have I just forgotten the secret handshake?

Edit:

Heh, looking at the stats it appears I still have the 4th highest total time online after all these months. And these forums had only been up a few months too.

Heh, I just realised i have the fifth highest total time online... Looking at my post count of 284 285 I'm gonna guess I read a lot more than I thought I did.

I have two screens atm; my main screen is an Acer AL1922 19" LCD and the other is a Toshiba REGZA 26" LCD TV.

Im having problems getting my computer to use the Toshiba as a second screen, currently it only likes to act as either a dublicate screen, and/or an extended desktop which completely jacks up any screen that I try and maximize.

Any suggestions?
