Help me /g/.

I have been looking at monitors for days and cannot make my fucking mind up. I have a 970 meme card, no interested in 4k.

I currently have a flatron W2361v which is finally dying.
Was looking at:

Dear /g/, I'm in need of help. Are any of you familiar with making themes for Windows 8/8.1? I want to get the Windows Vista taskbar background on my install, but maintain the default Aero theme for the rest of the OS. I just like the taskbar of Vista, is all.

No one has made a theme like that, so I'm stuck with trying to take pieces of already made themes like Vista VS and replace the images in the stock Aero theme. I've run into a problem:

I have yet to find a reliable theme editor. Be it Windows Style Builder, or simply using Resource Hacker/Restorator. Style Builder is not completely supported on 8.1 so some taskbar properties are missing, which leads to problem #2, so I end up with pic related. No one has written up a guide on where common image locations are in resource editors either, so if I were to look for that spot (and the systray) in an editor, I would have no idea where it is located out of thousands of entries.

Can anyone help me? I just need to figure out what image to replace here.

So from the destruction of one of the main sources of communication between people, people became more genuine with the people they knew. Like friends would genuine be friends instead of glorified acquaintances. There would be no "oh, I would love to talk with them again it's just I never have the time...(even though I could just type in a few words on this media site by just clicking on their name)". Instead people who want to keep in touch with people will actually have to take work in making an effort, no excuses, more honesty.

 >> Anonymous Sat Nov 28 06:07:06 2015 >>51571656True. As a master student myself I'm not forced to use LaTeX, but it really does make my life easier here. I can't speak for other universities of course.

 >> Anonymous Sat Nov 28 06:09:26 2015 >>51571658That's true, but for *years* before I got into my PhD program I kept coming back to LaTeX thinking that "this time it'll click" and every time I looked around online the guides took the same tone of "don't learn, just download this or that template and avoid digging around underneath the surface". That was incredibly frustrating, and some of the syntactic stuff seems inconsistent, frustrating, and certainly outdated. As an example, you can bold text by saying{\textbf hello}OR by doing {\bf hello}which is just fucking insane. I know that the latter is deprecated, but being confused about a new markup language that seems as weird as LaTeX and then discovering all these weird gotcha issues doesn't endear the language to a new learner.I think in the end it was the citation management that got me to give up trying to make sense of it, and once I stopped trying it proved to be in my best interest. I know there are citation managers for Word and whatnot, but nothing is as convenient as my ever-growing .bib file with all the conference papers, journal articles, books, and web pages I've ever found worth referencing.

The reason I'm so fucking mad at Latex is because, despite being nice and all, it can be very obscure as to why stuff isn't working and the log files aren't of any help. For example, I'm writing my thesis and I'm using the natbib package to manage my citations.In pic related you can see that the citations are in place correctly, but they're not compressed or separated by commas. \usepackage[sort&compress,comma,numbers,super]{natbib}This is how I'm calling the package. There is NO indication what so ever why this doesn't work and it makes me wanna pull my hair out.

How much does contrast ratio and GTG response time mean?
I am in need of a new screen because the current one is passing away slowly.
Have been eyeing this beauty. Asus VS248HR. It's 180$. I know right, >TN panel But every time I am to check screens, they are either out of my budget or don't have what I would wish for. IPS screens have slow response times. How much does response time matter? If they have high one, the contrast ratio and light emission is shit (like 200 cd/m^2). If I get a screen with good emission, contrast and response, it's TN panel. Which has shit colours. 300$ (or €) is limes superior in my budget. 24" is the biggest I could handle, so these are harsh boundaries. Which screen should I pick up? (It should have a DVI connection. I know DisplayPort is out of my league.)

 >> Anonymous Sat Nov 28 06:07:12 2015 >>51571393Lower response times means more blur on very fast moving scenes. Anything 4ms or less work well at 60Hz. Doesn't matter for desktop usage or work.Higher contrast ratio means deeper blacks.Generally, nobody uses more than 200 cd/m^2 unless they're in a super bright room. 350 cd/m^2 feel like looking at bright concrete on a sunny summer day.Unless you're playing a lot of fast paced games, you should try to look at VA panels. If you're gaming, it has to be a display with a kind of adaptive sync (G-sync or Freesync). The tech is just too good to pass. DVI or DP doesn't matter. Most modern screens support DP, and most modern GPUs have a least a DP output. It's the superior choice, while DVI is a legacy connector.
