I got a ransom demand because someone said they tapped my laptop and taped me doing something awful. I suppose idiots would pay that.


Seeing as I don't do anything awful, that wouldn't be a concern for me.

It probably doesn't matter seeing as I don't cover the one on my phone, but yeah.

How many display screens do you use
I use 2 but thinking about getting another display screen
My office desk at home is big enough to hold 3 screens
I currently run 9 different software programs and keep 3 web pages open and 3 reference documents open daily on my job

While 1 to 2 was a revelation that I could not undo, going from 2 to 3 has been kinda underwhelming.

There's a few times I've had a genuine appreciation for it (gaming aside). Video editing is one, where I have a number of folders and programs open and engaged and find alt+tabbing cumbersome. Pretty much any sort of graphic design type stuff like that or projects that require a number of apps or pages and most commands are of the point and click variety as opposed to key commands.

But other than that thin slice of my life, the majority of my 3rd screen is used for no other reason than I have it. Other than gaming (and often even when doing that) it only holds a Pandora app or pirated sports, something I could just as easily accomplish with an am/fm radio.

If YOU see a benefit, then I don't see why not, especially if you already have another TV laying around you can use without the financial output. Just know it gets HOT in that room with all 3 going lol. Oh, and make sure your GPU is up to the task. I don't mean graphically, but that it has 3 outputs. My old GTX660, for example, only had an HDMI and a Display port. Can't 3screen that no matter how light the load.
Be bold and risk defeat, or be cautious and encourage it.

I just cannot figure this one out. I am making a baseball stat spreadsheet for sports betting. A kindle book if it goes well. The problem is that after I copy and paste the "base" sheet to a new tab for a new team. When I cut and paste the new data in it corrupts most of my formulas and I get a "!REF" where cell addresses should be.

All I am doing is copying from baseball-reference.com to "staging" cells, then scrubbing the things I do not need, then a cut and past of 162 vertical cells. Why would this corrupt a formula?

It is not a ton of extra work, but 1/2 hour per team adds up.

If you just want the text, highlight it then put it into Word?

I can't figure out how to highlight on this machine. no mouse. it does one of those tiny square pads though.
When I use chrome the cut and paste commands don't seem to be turned on.

I think my Word app expired

Can't help on the no highlight. Sometimes you gotta feel for the bottom of the "square" where the mouse buttons should be. A pet peeve of mine. Had to hunt for one with actual buttons.

If you do not have Office you can download OpenOffice for free. If you can use Office you can figure out OpenOffice.
