I've calibrated it to match the other screen as much as i could. The only thing that bothers me is the lack of height adjustability. But i'll just the guys at the plant to make me a steel pedestal.

There's also the way the black background image (like the one where it says Quick Reply at the bottom) isn't wide enough now. :(

EDIT: here she is:

^ Do you have N on your computer as well? I don't so I got a new D-Link G router and it's awesome. My Netgear used to cut off so much, D-Link doesn't miss a beat. :thumbsup:

^ I hate you, soo much. I broke my shift eye and my bike has been in the shops for over two months, as they cant find the right part :S I suppose I should consider giving the bike a little less punishment.


In other news, I got woken up this morning by the brown delivery people and delivered me my best morning surprise ever.

I still want to know how you got that for free.
Well, a friend, just had a sudden inflow of money. Him being the sensible type, didnt spend it, but rather invested it in me, for my good future :) I do intend to pay it back though.

Replaced my three-year old clacky keyboard with a Wave:











The only thing I don't like about it is the noisy spacebar, but oh well.

^ I've been wanting the Wave for so long but I hate how only the Wave keyboard/mouse combo is wireless. Do you find the waviness awkward to type on?

No, it's completely natural to me. Why don't you just get the wired keyboard like me?

My first blind-purchase on Blu-Ray, but then considering all the Academy Awards it won and recommendations from my friends, I'm not really worried.

I never understood that movie. Just the whole premise is so off-putting.

It's hard to explain, but I need a wireless keyboard. I currently have a wired keyboard on a keyboard drawer in my desk, but I hate it and want something to put on my desk, and in that case it would have to be wireless as I hate clutter.

No, it's completely natural to me. Why don't you just get the wired keyboard like me?

I went to see it with a friend who is a bit of a movie buff and he hated it too. It's a bit of an abstract movie without much of a storyline... I guess you should look at it like you look at movies like Kill Bill. I thought it was pretty good, but nowhere near the hype it's gotten.

Woo! *High Fives* Wave Club.

I don't think the spacebar is noisy. Maybe you are hitting it too hard(?)

Shawn: I love the waviness! It was awkward at first from a flat keyboard, but you get used to it very quickly. Go out and get one now! I bought the wireless one but don't use the mouse (I don't think its very good - I have a MX1000)
