Oh I only had 3 CRTs. That setup was a monstrosity enough. The 6 panel setup was all lcd.

That room was a few degrees warm though...

>I'm going the other way. Aside from spreadsheets, I find I use less and less screen.

I've been multi-monitor since about 2002 when I had big CRTs on stands that looked like small oil derricks. My last office at home in the old house had 6 monitors. So, this i actually a downgrade from what I'm used to for overall coverage.

Since I'm no longer working production, I don't need all of that space and separate monitors. This is a much cleaner look in the office and currently fits my workload well. feel like I could always use more space (6 wasn't enough) but this works.

I am in lust with this monitor. Dell 38" widescreen with a slight curve. 3840x1600 is just about perfect for me at this size. Absolutely beautiful screen that is well calibrated from the factory, the slightest amount of anti glare coating. Only complaints I've read are about weak-ish black level which affects me none.

I've been using one in the home office since August. Just ordered another to upgrade the 34" lil brother to this model at the main office. There's a coupon on the page for another 50 off. I opted for free shipping and they sent it 2day anyway.

Came to post that. It seems they are cherry picking the numbers, going by this:

https://www.finder.com/car-loan-statistics

Since 2010 we've increased a million accounts behind 90 days, but we've grown about 30 million accounts total. So, overall it was about 8% of total loans then and the new loans are less than 4%, bringing the overall to around 6.5 currently.

Seems about right to me?

SC has some good experience here. Misleading headline:

https://www.wspa.com/news/sc-town-seized-135-for-each-person-from-traffic-stops-1/1772612990

Small town, they collected 50k from 50 stops. Only 3 of these resulted in conviction. The headline number represents forfeiture per resident of the town based on 50k.

Glad you have been carrying on the tradition! And rocksteady as ever. I feel if I had more time and your drive, I'd be hercules inside 6 mos.

I didn't make it in Friday, had to stay home for an install. But, I'm hitting 3 times this week, hell or high water.

Pretty sweet setup there. We just have the list building stuff mainly for shopping and she loves it. We've been doing the grocery delivery/subscription thing, she checked out several of the bigger providers and settled on one so that makes the grocery list easier.

Hah that's pretty cool actually.

What do you get the most use of that you've done so far?

« on: February 09, 2019, 08:38:58 PM »
Clickfunnels is like the landing page/email setup. Stripe is payment processing only. Gravity forms is a pretty common WP plugin for forms and sometimes ecomm processing. I don't know what "Paid memberships pro" is but is sounds like a wp plugin.

I'm not sure what this statement is saying without knowing more about the setup or the question at hand.

This, so much. I have exactly 0 energy and effort to find something and when I do, I'm locked.

>In short, you just tell people what they said --whether they said it or not.

Any distant enough examples you can share?

Somewhat related, I recently read a book on body language by and ex FBI examiner. Pretty interesting stuff on signals people send whether they know it and try to repress them or not.
