Double Your Fun with DoubleSight

Ianoo Re:2560x1024 fractal wallpapers (344 comments)

Your CRTs should be set at 1280x960, not 1280x1024. All computer CRT screens are 4:3 aspect ratio, which corresponds with 800x600, 1024x768 and 1600x1200, but not 1280x1024, which is actually 5:4.

This means that the pixels on your CRT won't be square, leading to the screen appearing stretched horizontally.

With an LCD, the resolution is factory set, so a 1280x1024 screen will actually be physically 5:4, and so the pixels will still be square.

Not all of us display our e-mail addresses and not everyone wants to use e-mail to contact random people from Slashdot. I guess Journal comments is about as close as it gets.
