Detailed information

Widescreen LCD Monitor

The w2408h is a 24" LCD Widescreen Monitor from HP.  1920 x 1200 resolution, 60Hz refresh rate, 2000:1 contrast ratio, 5ms response time (on-off), with VGA and HDMI support (HDCP-compliant), built-in speakers.  The double-hinge base allows tilt and height adjustment of the screen for best viewing angle.  You can also rotate the screen to portrait mode.  Plus 2 USB ports.

The slightly older model is w2408.  The technical specifications appear to be the same, except for (1) input supports for VGA and DVI-D (HDCP-compliant too); and (2) a lower contrast ratio of 1000:1.

Manual for TWiT Cottage Etiquette

Dane Golden has sent Dick a TWiT Cottage Welcome Pack, with clear instructions for etiquette at the TWiT Cottage.  Call Leo Mr Laporte; never get closer to him than 3 feet; don't sit higher than him; always reach for the bill; no eye contact; never turn your back on Leo - leave the room facing him bowing and scraping.  Look humble.

GizWizLive Available for Download?

William Lawrence goes back to the old episodes, starting with Episode 1, and it keeps getting better.  He is delighted to hear that Dick will be appearing on TWiTLive on 20 June but is horified to learn that he will be away on a beach without internet access.  Will there be a download for GizWizLive, the gadget event of the millennium?  Leo thinks he might be able to record the show.
