For 2017 I still have a single screen and 1920x1080 resolution.

Ha! :D

On my laptop (which I'm using now), the resolution is a measly 1600x900 60hz. :( My desktop's monitor is 1920x1080 60hz though. But it's not the size that matters... it's how you use it. ;)

It will change in the new year because I plan to build a new computer and get the note 8 if there is nothing better out by then.

Is that your boat? Any chances of getting it afloat again?

Nothing changing for me - a 1920x1200 Cintiq at home and a laptop with a 1920x1080 screen for work and for my time in Germany :)

And a 32x32 sampling for the FFT madness I'm currently slipping into :-X

1366x768 still.

As to improvements, I think I'll try talking more to people. Maybe write a program.

1920x1080 still. I just got a BIG donation on my Allegro 5 game (Deluxe Pacman 2) of $3200 Canadian, so I am considering grabbing a new monitor, but as an extra to the one I already have. Never had a dual monitor setup but I think it could come in handy for developing.

Who in the bloody Hell donated $3200 to a pacman clone?! Congrats on that anyway!

My resolution remains at 2048x1152@60hz. I want too many things in different directions to get anything new! In any case, that's a decent resolution. I don't know how people survive on 1920x1080 for a computer monitor. I hate that so much. Well, I guess you do what you must.

What I want is to start playing CS:GO competitive, but for that I need a working mic. I'd also like to get the FPS up which means a video card, and I'd love surround sound precision which means a sound card... That's just my computer. Then I need motorcycle gear replacements and upgrades. And a few other high price items on my wish list... None of it I can afford.

Shortly I'll be getting a remote starter for my truck. Thanks to Miranda. That will be nice. :-*

Anyway, my actual resolution is to start waking up at 8 AM again everyday so that I have time before work to shower. I've been getting up at 8:40 or 9 for the past year which barely leaves me enough time to clean the snow off in the winter!

;D... honestly, I am with you, I don't know why someone would but... this is the SECOND time this same person has done this, he's from Chicago anyhow. The first time was $1250 US a couple years ago, and now $2500 US. The game is free so, they don't have to pay a penny, I only made it for my wife initially.

It certainly does inspire me to work on something else though! ;)

This also makes me love Americans even more. ;)

They're trying to get the money out of the US quickly before Trump gets it ;D

Bambams, isn't your resolution only barely higher than the resolution you said you can't stand?

2048 - 1920 = 128
1152 - 1080 = 72

I think that's enough of a difference to matter. I know you can definitely notice a significant visual difference.

2048 * 1152 / 1920 / 1080 = 1.137

So you get 14% more pixels!

Remember when resolutions like 640x480 and 800x600 were the norm? :)

Heck, I still remember when 640x400 was high res! :D

I ran 640x200 on my Amiga for years.

I NEED to build an old DOS system I think... with DJGPP and Allegro 4 (which I still have on here, along with some of my older Allegro+DOS games). Maybe I'll see what I can code for DOSBox. Could be fun.
