tried fixing it by futzing around with pixel format in CCC, re-calibrating ClearType settings (couldn't tell a difference between one choice and the next), changing stuff in the menus...
the display has a ton of settings... backlight, brightness, HDMI color range, content type, color enhancement, C.A.T.S. (tempted to enable just due to acronym but it makes the display very dark), and some more stuff I'm forgetting
yeah, I'm tempted to get a new monitor so I don't hate using my desktop for coding and reading/writing documents... I don't mind it for gaming at all because fonts matter less than graphics there, but it's bad for MS Word and web browsing especially
the main problems I have with the original Surface Pro are the limited disk space and the impossibility of using the type cover on any orientation other than on a flat desk... the 2 and 3 are supposed to fix those issues
I doubt they improved on the display very much. I mean, how could they?! it's already gorgeous
don't try to improve on perfection. just make the internals better
I wonder how small that 156 MB CSV file would be XZ'ed
it can probably say "OK, now there are 67358 successive values of length 6 with a "," delimiter, and the values are:" to save repeated commas
or "there are 67358 successive values of length (y = 3x^7 + 4x^6 + 2x^5 + x^4 + 17x^3 + 8x^2 + 3x) with a "," delimiter, and the values are:"
long chains of polynomials (long enough to be precise, but not long enough to be longer to describe than the actual data) are used to describe non-linear repeated occurrences of symbols in advanced compression formats like LZMA.
(incidentally, one app I'm writing now uses a button in a WebBrowser control, because... I was using the WebBrowser control to display some HTML/CSS-formatted text, and they wanted a button in that page, and overlaying a WinForms button is even uglier... urgh)
(it's tied into the rest of the app through JS & ObjectForScripting & COM
@Mokubai I mean rendering of products. Some look real but some look like they are computerized which is not good when it comes to selling it on eCommerce website. Customer can tell right away that it's not real and was computer-rendered and this impression is something sellers try to avoid.
In 2012, a news report by Vincent Verweij for Dutch broadcaster Katholieke Radio Omroep revealed that the contents of at least 16,000 Iomega hard drives were publicly available on the internet, due to the drives being sold with their password security systems disabled by default.
Among those affected were KLM, ING Group and Ballast Nedam, who all had sensitive and confidential material leaked in this manner. Parent company EMC Corporation refused to comment, but Brian Gruttadauria, a spokesman for Iomega USA, acknowledged the failure and said future models (starting February 2013) would come with password security enabled by default, and clearer instruction to users about the risks of unsecured data.
