I’ve been toying with dock placement on my two desktops for the past few days and have discovered that even with very similar set-ups, I’ve ended up with very different Dock placements.
At home, I have two flat panels (20″, 17″). The larger panel is straight in front of me with the smaller being on my left. In this set-up, the Dock has gravitated to the left side of the smaller panel.
At work, I have one flat panel (17″) and a tube (21″). The flat panel is much easier to read than the tube, so it’s become my main window. The tube is on the RIGHT and, thinking my home set-up would work here, I put my Dock on the right side of the tube.
It took about ten minutes of usage to total annoy me. Because of the curvature of the tube, my Dock looks like it’s off in the horizon. Multiple monitor adjustments showed no improvement, so now it’s on the left side of the flat panel… which I kind’a dig.
The question is: where’s your dock? and why?
This will be my first and last Survivor post. I was literally yelling at the TV last night during the premiere of Survivor All-stars and I need to vent. Some of these folks are, supposedly, the best Survivors in past shows, but, on the show, it’s DAY #4 and NO ONE HAS STARTED A FUCKING FIRE.
Anyone who has watched Survivor in the past know that in the initial days, one of the first challenges is getting fire to boil water and cook food. Invariably, they get fire from a challenge or from tribal council. ONE WOULD THINK that former contestants who were invited back to the show would spend an afternoon or so figuring out how in the world to start a fire… maybe practice a few times? Learn the ins and outs?
No. No fire. All-stars? Idiots.
