What is your sceen size and internet connection?
« on: June 25, 2010, 09:29:37 AM »
Interested to know as I would like to propose that the picture width be increased to 1024 pixels. Photography is my hobby and I have some tutorials that I would like to post and it would be nice if the pictures appeared in full rather than thumb nails.

So my screen is on a lap top and is 1200 wide by 800 heigh and I have a broadband connection that is pretty fast.

I find it mistifying that in this age of information, some people still deny the scientific history of our existence.

Uhmmmmmm.............
I have DSL..... 100mpbs, at least that's what it says anyway.
Monitor is uhmm..... big enough?  I think I bought a 19" for this computer, I know I did for hubby's but my monitor is more rectangular... might be a 21"  Too much bigger and I get motion sick while typing  :blush:

We have a broadband connection at home, and I have a 23.1" widescreen monitor - I think the resolution is 1920 x 1080.

Cheers. It's looking like 1024 wide for pictures will not be an issue. Need a few more before we can call it a quorum.

Rez is always as high as I can get it, at work though it only goes up to two 1280x1024 displays. Internet is always high speed.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

I have a 9" pink baby Acer. I connect where I can in malls and coffee shops.

I've got three computers at home.
- the latest 27" iMac (running under OS-X Snow Leopard and Windows 7).
- a three year's old Sony Vaio, with a 15" screen (running under Windows XP)
- a 7 year old Fujitsu Siemens PC with a 17" screen (running under Ubuntu 10).

I surf the Internet at home with a 16,000 kBits DSL Connection.
The universe never did make sense; I suspect it was built on government contract.

MacMini attached to a Samsung 52" TV. Resolution is highest... 1440 I think.

Also check the interwebs on my iPod Touch.
