If I buy an item for $100 cash and I buy the same item on credit card for $95 (minus the 5% cash back…I have GAINED, they have LOST $5 (or whatever the banks % is) if I had paid cash.
The math is fairly simple…even for you.
Yeah, it is simple, which is why it’s strange you don’t seem to understand it. I’ll let you read this part again:

Pay $1000 cash or pay on credit?, pay on credit and settle it up immediately and get 2-5% back or points you can cash in…only the stupid and financially dumb pay with cash.
The bank still makes money on every transaction, the merchant pays the network a processing fee that’s, surprise surprise, a few percent higher than your cash back. Your master plan is really just you being puppeted by your FI to jedi business owners out of money which in turn means they raise their prices by about how much they have to pay in processing fees meaning you’re still paying more in the long run, but marginally less so than people who actually pay with their own money.
I’m not even saying it’s not the correct thing to do, but you thinking you’re beating the bank with this scheme is fucking retarded.

2021-04-19 at 2:09 PM UTC in Queen Elizabeth II death poolHey everyone! Look at me! The jedis really like me and they know I’m such a well trained goy that I’ll always pay money back to them when they give it to me!
If you work really really really hard like me, you too may be able to raise you “ability to be safely exploited by bankers” level

I've been using yabai (for OSX) recently and it's pretty good. Admittedly I've never used i3 for long enough for it to really sink into muscle memory, and I won't claim yabai is better (because I don't think I can fairly judge i3), but given the constraints with working with the OSX windowing system it's pretty amazing what's possible. I also really appreciate the approach of "yababi is a binary you call, rig up your own keybinds with skhdrc". The separation of window management and the entrypoints to window management feels very unix-y in an elegant way.

2021-04-18 at 2:29 AM UTC in What OS is most comfortable to you?I’ve used OSX at every programming job I’ve had and just got used to it, use it for personal stuff too, so it’s definitely what I’m most “comfortable” with in terms of an every day driver. Servers have always been some flavor of linux, I usually go for Debian but honestly you could switch the distro out under me for any of the popular options and as long as it has my vimrc it would be a while before I realized anything had changed.
Nix looks cool though, it’s the one distro that has enough of a “thing” that I’d spend time trying something new. Linux package management kinda sux in light what modern language package managers can do these days. NPM is a shitshow of the highest caliber but one thing it got right is that “system” libraries are stupid, disk space is cheap as dirt, and any sane person would happily trade some page sharing to be able to have two versions of glibc on the system and the universe not imploding as a result.
I’m so far behind on Debian updates for NiS I don’t think I have an upgrade path anymore. I think I’m going to take a weekend at some point and ditch Debian and my shitty ssh script for nix and nixops. Try it out in “production” and see if it really delivers what it promises.

I haven't changed my narrative on the 4k,8k thing..the human eye can discern up to 12k..JUST THE FACTS MA'AM. (and possibly beyond depending on the display size as mentioned).
Edited to add the important quotation marks and comma.

A pixel could be 100ft square so the 20ft comment is redundant.
Fine, if you want to be a pedantic cunt then sure, at 20 ft even a standard sized (let’s say anything under 30”) VGA monitor will have sufficient resolution that a higher pixel density won’t be perceptible to the human eye.
The irony here is you’re actually trying to make the same general point I was.

Originally posted by Jiggaboo_Johnson Also not true…pixels have no defined size…if said shitty montior had a screen size of 1/3rd of a mile then you'd easily see each individual pixel from 20ft away.
THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK/TYPE!
resolution is just the density of pixels..not the size of them. you could have a 1080P monitor the size of the moon with each pixel the size of a large city.
Never said that pixels have a universal fixed size, just like I never said resolution of a monitor changes with respect to your distance from it. Try pulling your head out of your ass and reading for a change.
The point remains: if you want to model the human eye as a digital camera (which for reasons already mentioned is retarded) then the maximum pixel density of a display that’s perceptible to a camera depends on the amount of the cameras’ field that’s occupied by the display. Aka the distance to the display.

Originally posted by Jiggaboo_Johnson The resolution doesn't change regardless of your field of view…two entirely different things.
Yes, the resolution doesn’t change but the amount of your visual field it occupies does. Like you can’t make out individual pixels on even shitty vga monitors from 20 feet away. The distance from your face to the screen directly impacts whether or not higher pixel density would be perceptible or not.

Not sure how you assign a digital resolution to human sight, but even if you assume the human eye is a 40 MP camera (which is dumb since human visual acuity is wildly different across the visual field, e.g. very low in the periphery) it’s obvious that how much digital resolution is perceptible depends on the distance from your eye to the screen. A monitor doesn’t occupy your full visual field (and you wouldn’t want it to).
Re: op, I’d definitely go with the pair of 4ks, you already have to shell out a good chunk of change for a rig that’s going to run games at 4K smoothly, not even sure much supports 8k at this point. And having a second monitor is nice. I didn’t bother with one for my gaming computer but my work/hobby work is a pair of 4ks and a loud display and I’m thinking of adding a third because I hate having to shuffle windows around with a passion.
2021-04-14 at 1:27 AM UTC in Scientists warn to avoid JoggersOscar Grant thing was pretty fucked up. I mean sure, maybe it was an honest mistake, gun and taser are close together, but like if you hit someone with your car when speeding that’s still at least manslaughter. I’m fully willing to believe it’s not racially motivated but shit, in that case I care even more about having cops who can pull out the right thing before shooting at me or anyone else.
