Re: Windows 11 and Multimonitor Issue

I never could figure out why - and sometimes it did just work as expected. Of course, I'm also running Windows 11 Pro, and it does things weirdly to begin with.

Re: Hurricane Ian

Re: Windows 11 and Multimonitor Issue

Ahh, sorry, I assumed it was a personal device, not a managed device. Then, yes, you're stuck with doing it only for your own login - which is all that really matters, eh? FWIW - I fought with this for almost a year as I slowly transitioned from my pair of old 1080p monitors to having a triplet of 4...

Re: blog: 90 sunsets

so now I must do the equivalent sunrise experiment to be certain :) Naturally. And I hope that you've instilled enough curiosity and creativity in your kids that they, too, are eager to run another set of experiments and find out the real values. How cool or uncool are temperatures before sunrise i...
