AMD Multi-Display Tech Has Problems, Potential

xxuserxx Re:Neat idea but not that useful (138 comments)

The guys spending the cash for a 5800 series + are the same who will spend the same on 3 monitors. The hardware industry is driven by the enthusiast already. Is the mainstream who gets our scraps.

AMD Multi-Display Tech Has Problems, Potential

xxuserxx Re:Whatever (138 comments)

You obviously have not played a racing simulator in tripple screen. There are tricks to reducing bezel size and multiple monitor vendors are reducing bezel size as they are cathing on to tripple head. The bezels tend to not be noticable with you are immersed in a game. Some guys who are hard core just remove the monitor casing to get them even thinner.

AMD Multi-Display Tech Has Problems, Potential

xxuserxx Re:Hell Yes (138 comments)

3 1920x1080 monitors in a proper tripple head setup will net you a resolution of 5760x 1080 good luck getting that on a TV.

AMD Multi-Display Tech Has Problems, Potential

xxuserxx Re:Gaps between monitors (138 comments)

The same way you can drive your real car with blind spots. With tripple head your resolution is not stretched it's increased. So you still see everything the same on the center screen but you get more now with the side monitors. There are tricks to reduce the bezel such as lining up the monitors to hide the bezel of the sides. Also once in the game the bezels tend to be ignored. I forget they are there.

Steve Jobs Publishes Some "Thoughts On Flash"

xxuserxx My problem with Apple. (944 comments)

If Apple did not use the OSI model and developed their own proprietary protocols then I would not care about what they are doing. But I think its pretty crappy that Steve will use layers 1-4 like everyone else but then he locks down 5-7 on his OS's. He simply uses open standards only when they suit his own purposes.

CompTIA Reneges, Reconsiders on Lifetime Certifications

xxuserxx Re:Im sick of comp sci asshats telling me a+ is cr (245 comments)

Thats awesome. So what your saying is go to college so you can sit on your ass? I enjoy working because I do it on my own terms. I make an awsome salary for a 28 year old and I have never paid a single dollar for tuition. When my client made me an offer to come on board full time I only had 2 demands. My pay raises and I 100% run the network the way I see fit.

CompTIA Reneges, Reconsiders on Lifetime Certifications

xxuserxx Re:More examples of why certs are useless (245 comments)

Depends on where you work. I expect my helpdesk guys to be able to troubleshoot a wide range of issues from DNS outage to an ethernet connection on the wrong VLAN. While I dont expect them to "fix" the issue, identification on network problems can help them develop their skills. I do train my guys a lot on company time.

xxuserxx Re:Microsoft had this same problem (245 comments)

I dont need a class to keep up with current hardware when I read PC perspective / hardOCP every day. Certs are not geared for geeks they are geared for non tech people who want to try geek work.

xxuserxx Certs that teach OSI/TCP model. (245 comments)

I will give a nod to Cisco certs as atleast they make you study the OSI/TCP models in depth with really gives anyone in programming / IT a solid foundation to build off. But I know that stuff already.

xxuserxx Like this cert ever mattered anyway. (245 comments)

Certs are a joke. Im a highscool dropout, never taken any certs but I do pretty damned well. When I used to work for a consulting firm and we would get fresh college grads with plenty of certs but a lot of them just didnt have what it takes to make it in consulting. Now I am the the Sysadmin for a very well known private company and still consult on my off time through word of mouth from my previous clients. I specialize in Microsoft and Cisco. I do switching, routing and VOIP specifically call manager. Certs are a joke I have been doing this stuff since I was 14 kiss my ass you corporate mongers.

How does your IT department manage CD/DVD's?

xxuserxx xxuserxx writes  |  more than 4 years ago

xxuserxx writes "We have a dedicated storage cabinet that holds most of our software. Over the years this has become a bit out of controll and we are looking for a new soution. I looked on a few of our vendors websites but did not find anything that would meet our requirements. I am looking for an electronic storage device that will store the disks and keep a database as well. Is there anything like that out there? I am looking for somthing in the 1000 + CD/DVD range."
