Hardware & Reviews / Re: Monitors are not recognised...can you help?

Well, I've had all sorts of components fail;  and the support is absolute rubbish without exception.  They all get to sent back to Asia somewhere, and you have to wait months for a replacement - which is simply not an option with a computer. 
I thin it'd be high time we started complaining to the authorities en masse; they need to force an instant replacement on the shops, on items under warranty.  Let them deal with many months of wait. 

Not to mention, deferring warranty to the manufacturer is probably illegal, too.

Eye candy  is nice, but this is the bit that makes me think I'll never buy it.  I've done this enough times already.

...But Rockstar's mission design hasn't changed

Red Dead 2's rigid mission design uses the open world as little more than a stage for the same missions we've been playing in Rockstar games since Grand Theft Auto 3. Head to the map marker, ride and talk with someone to another map marker, shoot people, chase someone, and ride to the final map marker, chatting all the way. Any misstep within the bounds of the mission design means trying again. Don't take a shortcut, don't alert the guard, don't think up your own solution to any problem—ignore the massive, gorgeous sandbox or try again.

Haha yeah but this one monitor cost more than double than my 3x27s, so to go triple with this would be beyond my budget and no GPU in the world would be able to max it out anyway  :o

Hm...if I remember correctly Marty was using 3x 4k monitors...but it definitely needs a beefy GPU or three :).

Wrt the image, Russ; you did insert an image, but the image source is not an image...the URL it points to redirects to a html page.
This is the what you have added:
Code: [Select]
<img src="https://photos.app.goo.gl/duf93JNRyXVtExj19" alt="" class="bbc_img">
I can recommend imgur for sharing images; it does give you the actual image source.

That made me thinking of this old guy, who has a brilliant voice.   

I've read somewhere that you can't run servers - again - so team matches are a bit of a problem.   Is that so?

Thanks for the streaming site Bird, but I don't really listen to that much music anymore :'(. I still have my CD collection and have xferred a lot of it to USB sticks to listen to in the car but that is about it. I am very much old school and still have my Connoisseur turntable with Grace G707 tonearm from the 70s, which I still use on the odd occasion.

I applaud that.  I'm just a lazy old fart and I can't be bothered; otherwise I'd certainly rebuild my black disk collection, too :)

I have bought the CD but have yet to listen :).
Thumbs up mate!

Btw if you don't want to buy CDs but like to listen into various music - with reasonable quality - I can recommend Tidal. 
They've got proper hifi quality going (uncompressed stream), and a pretty wide variety.   

Costs about as much as a CD per month, which isn't that much, IMO.

For me it was great as my CD collection stayed behind, and I could find most of it on Tidal - and more.

Oops sorry, didn't really look to see if deals were any good. I got f1 2019 with my formula wheel, tried it a couple times and it's shite

I didn't look much either, it's only that Dirt2 title caught my eye. :)   I've played Motorsport Manager, btw.  It's fun on mobile, but the desktop is just a blown-up mobile app IMO.

LOL Dirt2 $47 @ 60% off?  Yeah right.  I'm not *that* gullible.
It's $34 @ 60% off on steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/690790/DiRT_Rally_20/

Still not sure if I should buy it...

Codemasters are really becoming the Codewreckers...The garbage they produce is astonishing.  Buggy code with utterly shit interfaces.   Altho AC has one of the worst interfaces in the known universe, so there.

Howdy, mate.   
You are serious about your baby factory...no.7!

Well, on behalf of all the homos not coming around, hi!
I was hoping Brit would drop by at least, as he does occasionally (he still may at some point).

The fact is; the original guys have gone off in every direction, pretty much.   XGN is held up by the sim racing sections nowadays - as you might have seen.

Well, I strongly recommend The Wall, then.  It'll be worth frying another set of speakers! 
You don't even need to be drunk.  But it's best if you listen to it as one, not just 'songs' off it, IMO.
