Meh. I consider size a downside to actual quality on LCDs. Even at those narrow viewing angles the colours are becoming washed out.

What about 4K OLED?

What it is?
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

What about 4K OLED?

I've been waiting over almost a decade for OLED monitors to finally hit the market, so I'm interested in those, but I have no interest in 4K (and none of this curved fad garbage). There's currently very little content for 4K, and I wouldn't want to run a PC full time at that res with current hardware and software, nor would I run at non-native res on a fixed resolution panel. But real black would be nice instead of the terrible way LCD handles it.



No, I've noticed, I just didn't know what your excuse was. Do you have regular job hours?
Thankfully I do not.

What do you do for your dollary-doos?
Data entry. Boring as shit but I get a lot of freedom regarding hours. I do a bit from home aswell.

Could be worse. Where abouts do you live anyway?

Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

Newcastle.

One of the few NSW people on the forum (not sure if there are any others actually). How far are you from Toronto? (there's a place here called Toronto guys, I'm not that shit at geography). I have some family living there.

A few thousand kilometres? Canada is pretty far. :neverusethis:

About 40 or 50 minutes maybe, I'm not sure I've never actually been there.

I've never actually been there myself, our family always visits here instead. Not sure there's anything of note there, unless you're looking to meet my extended family. :neverusethis:

And I missed Dr. DTVT by a few days - he was heading out of town (for a meetup with Nick and King no less), just as I was heading into his neck of the woods.

If Reaper would only tell me when he comes into town, I could scratch him off the list too.

The sex was great as well

I have not, in fact, met jingle.  Or many others.  Although I would love too.

I met rumborak and a host of other older members (who are largely inactive here now) at the DTF meetup in New York on April 1, 2006 (before the RCMH show).  In addition, it is my understanding that several people who are still active were there also, but we didn't meet - it was a large gathering, and I was still fairly new to DTF.

I also met vtgrad at the local showing of Live at Luna Park.  And I met DrDTVT in my city on my birthday a few years ago (he happened to be travelling through, so we met for lunch).
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Geez man, why do you have to be such a downer?  You asked "Has anyone here met another DTFer in reality ?"

I post a picture in the pic thread everytime I meetup with someone, as do a lot of others.  I know you've been in the pic thread.  It would seem logical that you know the answer to the question you asked.  So my response of "not sure if serious" (through a very common and widely used gif) is putting you in your place how? 

Your question was not worded to ask "which members have met other members?" if that's what you intended.

But whatever... take it as me putting you in your place.

oh look. a new chat thread
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces
