Twice the fun!!!

I was sat using my laptop, and juggling applications as I like to 'massively multitask', then I suddenly realised. I had another monitor sat in the same room, and my laptop was capable of 'DualView'. I plugged him in and voila, twice the screen real estate. It makes so much difference, as I'm regularly using two applications at once, photoshop/dreamweaver, dreamweaver/FireFox, FireFox/FireFox. I think I may even have to invest in a cheap TFT screen for when I go back to uni. Having two screens saves so much time, and is so natural.

Other notes:

  • Yes, viral for MathSoc.
  • Photoshop and Dreamweaver are just the best, yes they cost a fortune, but they're so worth it. Photoshop allows me to get my ideas direct from my head onto screen, and everyday I find a little more of its power. Dreamweaver has become little more than a text editor for me, but its feature set is second to none, other programs seem to have lots of gradients on their menus etc. But with Dreamweaver, if it doesn't do something you want it to, you just write some javascript to change how the program works, its genius!
  • I'd prefer it if the start bar split across screens, that'd be far more intuitive.

  1. I reckon they don't split the start bar, in case you don't line your monitors up properly….

    Anyway, I keep on thinking of doing that with my desktop, but it would require a new graphics card, as my current one can only do a single output. But then it is a pretty meaty graphics card at the mo' I'm not sure if I could afford one similar that supports dual screening… oh well.. having two computers and two monitors would be greedy
