About two weeks ago I asked your advice on some hardware, mainly two new monitors and a docking station.
You guys gave me some very good tips and recommendations and after taking everything into consideration... I did the complete opposite
Funny thing with the monitors, they're 2560 x 1440 and Windows recommends changing font sizes to 125%.
I agree that 100% is a bit small, but at 125% some text got blurry.
The solution is to choose a custom scale and set it at... 125%!
Works like a charm, everything's crispy clear
I've used that tactic
Customer calls: "Sander, there's a bug in the software."
Me: "Really? I can't imagine our software has any defects..." while quickly doing an update.
Customer: "Yeah really, if I do... Huh, it works now, but it didn't a minute ago!"
Me: "Seems like you've really lost it this time..."
Customer: "Did you just do an update!?"
Me: "You can't prove that "
Those are a good resolution. I like having 1440 lines. I have 1200 at work and it's pretty good but I have 1440 at home. I would probably have gone for the 27s at that resolution just to get the text bigger, although they are twice the price. I would also have looked for some that are cheaper than Dells.

Dell regular price are always to high so they can have big sale as the 200 rebate currently in the US.
I don't remember the last sale price I saw but is has probably close to AUD$450.00. Still higher than the US price even with taxes excluded but a good price for that monitor. I have the previous model (U2515D) at home and it great. Thinking about getting one for work as I miss having Visual Studio on a QHD resolution.
This is happening on two separate dev boxes. Both W10, latest version of VS2017. Both are laptops, but on one, wired keyboard and wireless mouse, the other one is just the built in keyboard and touchpad.
So, definitely not specific to the machine. It's definitely VS, as the stuttering goes away after a few seconds.
I had the same problem with VS2015. Thinking about this, it's tough problem for MS developers. Program registers global mouse hook, so callback function is called on every mouse event. When the program breaks in the debugger and mouse moves, our callback is called, and everything is stuck.
I think that Windows finally detects problematic function in the hook chain and kicks it off, but this is only my guess.
huh, it's been a long time but I don't recall having that issue 12 or 13 years ago in VS2003 when hooking the mouse and keyboard.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
