    Please recommend a computer monitor

    I should add. Samsung calls their IPS panels PLS, but it's the same thing. Also, to be fair, the trend is for bigger monitors; I can personally see the need if you write code or edit videos or play games in which immersion is the no 1 # priority. But if you use your computer to browse webpages...

    Please recommend a computer monitor

    With your budget and your needs, I would look for an IPS panel and either look for a 1440p 24'' monitor or a 21''' 1080p monitor. Be careful to steer clear of gaming monitors. Do note that some companies have product lines specifically called business monitors which eschew the gamery stuff and...

    Formula 1 - 2021 - Chasing down Lewis?

    So the other day, the F1 youtube channel had a video with F1 drivers recounting their first F1 memories. Most of them were so young that their first memories come from the early oughts. That prompted me to think of my first memories as an old geezer. They are a bit older than the early oughts...

    I don’t understand how Bottas manages to look fat even though he really isn’t.

    Obviously it's too early to tell for this season, but OTOH you have him for a year trailing LeClerc who seems to be on par more or less with Sainz and even at the practice sessions I saw, he was running behind Stroll who is a privateer (not the worst one apparently, but still).

    Also, somewhat surprised Norris is doing better than Ricciardo and how close Sainz and LeClerc seem to be.

    Formula 1 - 2021 - Chasing down Lewis?

    I know what you meant. I was just joking. As far as the Hamilton hatred goes. I don't know to what degree there is Hamilton hatred and to what degree it's motivated by racism. Some impressions based on a few months of binging on youtube and netflix. Is the Hamilton the undisputed best driver...

    Did they take away his penthouse in Monaco? :) I dunno. Alex Albon shows how motivated you can become when you want to stop leaving with your mother and you really need to succeed in order to get your own place. :D

    Tompa Bay: Tom Tom Club

    I sure hope that Brady allowed a film crew to follow him around one of those seasons, so that we are able to watch the Last Dance: Brady Edition in 2042.

    Preparations for the Summer Olympics

    How about bring the Olympics home permanently? Though I have to add that I am concerned that if the Olympics came permanently to Greece, it will have some adverse, unintended consequences.

    Footy broadcasting - What do we have?

    It just dawned on me that the next step is for leagues to directly sell themselves. I mean, if NBC wants to sell the EPL through the internet, it can't be that difficult for the EPL to cut out the middleman and do it themselves. That's what the NBA is already doing. But then it goes back to the...

    Footy broadcasting - What do we have?

    Can I say something? I am so disoriented with all this movement of leagues and competitions in various channels that I don't know which is where; I am more of a casual viewer who will watch a game if it's on TV, but I don't have the time to say that I am going to watch this game on that date...

    NBC Sports Network shutting down, sports content headed to USA Network

    Soccer and F1 were enough and more than I watched on ESPN. I guess that's because I don't care for college football and I don't follow baseball anymore. To be fair I watch the NBA on ESPN. But sportscenter seems quaint now.
