Let's see how the image-resizer is feeling today:





Hooray! Click-to-embiggen kind of works! (It's still being downscaled somewhat, but is embiggenable to not-quite-original size.)

Trying to figure out if I can possibly cram more monitors into this specific workstation:

What are the atomic numbers supposed to correspond to? Year of first album (best guess)?

It's fun to read it and get enraged, then see something that makes it okay (If Bon Jovi is metal then Infectious Grooves should count! Oh hey, there's Suicidal Tendencies, never mind). Where the hell is Megadeth, oh, there you are, in good company no less.

Makes me wonder who some of these are if I like the others in their groups (an unfortunate nomenclature that means something entirely different in bands and science (and even music for that matter (matter, HA)))

Okay, apparently this chart is awesome as nerdgasm sauce. I'd have organized it differently to stay true to the idea that the farther right and down you go, the denser the element/metal. But I'd have never attempted to compile such a thing, so no complaints.

Not metal, but more metal than some:
Thanks for sharing!

Not more monitors, but more working area: https://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-43...hd-led-monitor


Get a few of them bad boys and go to town. And as an added bonus, you can see it comes with "Breaking News" pre-installed.

We have lots of multiview processors (you can see eleven of them in that photo, doing 3x3 and 4x4 splits), and also more than a few 4k monitors.

The problem comes in that you regardless of resolution, there is a practical limit as to how small you can make a display before the capability of the human eye to perceive it becomes a limiting factor.



Yeah, I know, the LG linked to is 43". Those just won't physically fit into this space, while accommodating the two monitors at center-middle and center-bottom, which are color calibrated SDI-native displays.

Joe, you won the "ultimate geek" contest years ago. Why are you still showing off?

It feels like my job, where my desk computer doesn't work, so I just go work in the conference room..

My father worked there. He used to go to the swimming pool at the athletics center in the nearby town where most of the workers lived before this happened. The place has since become a ghost town that shows what the cities will look like after humans are no longer there.

Haha. Not trying to prove anything, I just sometimes become conscious of the fact that I get to totally nerd-out for a living, and that's kinda cool.

(Other times, such as today, it's frustrating as hell, if all of the walls in hell are papered with printouts of badly-formatted XML.)

Not my transmitter room, but oh, so much glycol:



You may be a badass TV station when your transmitter's cooling pumps consume nearly as much power as the mean-average transmitter.
