The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions. Or if you must, use the Back Room[^] - but enter at your own risk.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen. For those discussions where you wish to be a little more frank, use the Soapbox[^]
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.

The unbelievable story of the ape that played chess against a computer in 1950 and triggered it's nuclear war program which calculated that all people will die and later on thought that defeat is not an option and therefore did not launch the nukes while everybody else was cheering and if you still read this far you see that this doesnt make sense movie.
I previously reported (The Lounge[^]) that the Win10 Anniversary Edition update makes my i7, 8GB laptop with touchscreen running Intel graphics flicker like crazy. Today, it has literally turned entirely black for 15 seconds or more before it finally re-draws. It's terrible.
I started thinking about refresh rates, screen resolution and the rest and started screwing with the settings in the graphics options.
I'm normally at 1366 x 768 but I decided to switch it. It does seem like a lower resolution makes it not happen as much. That started me thinking.
when I go to Custom Resolutions it warns me that being at some resolution not expected by the manufacturer could cause my screen and/or graphics hw to have a shortened life.
I know that pushing a monitor to refresh at abnormal speeds might be bad. But my point now is this...
...Doesn't allthis flickering mean that the drivers are doing bad things to my h/w too?
And doesn't that mean that Microsoft would have some responsibility in the shortened life of my h/w?
I suppose Satya Nadella will be calling me at any moment?
Weird, it was just the other way around for me. Ever since I got windows 10 ( August 2015 ) ,my second monitor (driven by an intel 4600) was acting up: after every reboot I had to disable/enable it using device manager to get it to show anything.
Since the Anniversary update it starts up okay now after a reboot.
I guess microsoft is aiming for divine status but we could do with a bit less of the mysterious ways stuff.
There is nothing wrong with your computer. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. We fruggin PWN you!
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
That lambo was slow off the starting line. I believe the driver must've been asleep.
