How did I get here? Like Carol Haynes, I think it was through a link in the Fred Langa Newsletter. Never did like him, ya know.... ;)

After I got here, I found I could not get away..... I've about seven months of work to do on our property and at least four months of work to do on the house..........nothing is happening because I can't get away from this site! :o

Actually, I only wish I could spend more time here. The posts are both informative and fun. I really like forums where the members have a sense of humor, as well as knowing what they are talking about.

I  see I'm having a tad of a problem with 'quotes' today.

To clarify:

Mouser, I like that idea. Have you made your side monitor the '#1' monitor to do this? Or did you drag your icons, etc. from your main monitor to the side one?

ultramon isn't the only program that does this, but i use it as well.  it is very useful to have a different taskbar on each monitor.  i don't use any of the other fancy features of ultramon.

i also put the main taskbar with startmenu and system tray on a side monitor (not the central one).

Hello everyone, this is my third post since I registered in 2008 - hate to rush into things, ya know.....

Both my wife and I are running two monitors each. Hers are wide screen and of the same size. SyncMaster 2243 (22" diag.)

My setup is a tad different in that my main monitor (directly in front of me) is a 19" diag, SyncMaster 915n, and my secondary monitor (to the right of the main monitor and angled towards me) is a 17" diag, SyncMaster  710n.

Both monitors are set at 32bit color, 1280x1024 resolution, and 75Hz refresh rate and set as extended displays. They are being driven by a Sapphire HD 3850 Graphics Card w/512 MB GDDR3 memory.

We are both using the Ultramon program which puts the taskbar at the bottom of both monitors. It is set so that only the programs running on a particular monitor are shown on its taskbar. We like Ultramon, by the way, because it puts an additional command button at the top of the open programs that you can click and automatically move it to the other browser. No more dragging from one monitor to the other.

Right now my monitors are position about an arms length from me and around 9.5 inches from the desktop to the bottom of the monitors. I expect to be making some changes that will lower the monitors several inches and allow me to pull them closer when desired.

I'm not a gamer but have purchased and used pretty much everything else Stardock offers. I've been doing this for years and have used their products on many machines and numerous reinstalls. I've never had a single problem with redownloading, reinstalling, serial numbers, or any other similar type of difficulty with Stardock. Their support and the ease of using and re-using their products, as far as I'm concerned, is unsurpassed.  :Thmbsup:

Never thought I'd find a thread about typing to be interesting. Hey, is this a great forum, or what?

While I've spent years producing proposals, doing 'tech' writing, and numerous other word intensive activities, I've never learned touch typing. Were I to start over again, I believe touch typing and speed reading would rate high on my 'to do lists'.

I fully agree with johnk (reply # 37) in that learning how to spell, punctuate, and the basic rules of grammar are of much greater importance. Reading comprehension should fit in there somewhere, as well.

Beyond that I feel that touch typing, along with 10 key, should prove to be well worthwhile to anyone wanting to advance in life.
