    There are 10 types of people in this world, those who cringed when reading the beginning of this sentence and those who salivated to how superior they are for understanding something as simple as binary.

    7. It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.
    40. There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.*

    Yeah, but on the bright side those "Dumb Consoles" don't (or maybe can't?) display the infamous "blue screen of death".

    Mine 1280 X 1024.

    I use 1280 by 960 at 85Hz because anything bigger and I'd have to fiddle around with font sizes and such. However, my monitor can do 1600 by 1200 at 85Hz if I ever choose to do so.

    1400x1050 on my laptop
    1600x1200 on my desktop

    I was curious why this poll did not include any higher resolutions after 1280x

    Here's a theory - screen resolution multiplied by programmer skill is a constant
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
