I bought a 30 inch screen

Sunday, June 29th, 2008

I should blog about this now, while the imprint is fresh in my head.

1. I am moving from a laptop to a Samsung 30 inch lcd

2. It is big, huge, the way you use the computer will change.

3. Moving from a laptop, you have to get an external keyboard, get one you like.  I’m typing this on my father’s iMac keyboard right now, it sucks.

4.  Bump up your mouse acceleration,  A mouse is necessary with this size screen, forget a trackpad, and even a mouse is innadequate.

5.  Window management on OS X is severely lacking.  I really want to get stumpwm working.

So far I like it.
