Yes, since then I've added windows, buttons, a file selector and a clock...

Oh woe, I don't want to throw it all away. But I'll never get a 1.0 release out the door if I keep faffing around with the PS/2 mouse driver...

I hope the code is clean and simple, as someone on the OSDev forums was recommending it as a study guide! :-)

Thanks for the changes guys. Been offline since Thursday so just spotted I have a full screen width again!

Oh wow! It's eye-strainingly impressive. :shock:

Does that background make anyone else's monitor look all shimmery?

Not mine but my wooden desktop seems to developing a dent in it from where my head keeps hitting it ;-)

Then put a mini-trampoline between your head and the table. You don't damage the table and your head bounces back effortlessly ;)

I think that might well cause whiplash, but towy's used to that :D

I get the shimmer thing. How did he do that? It hearkens back to my Atari 800 days. :)

Are you folks using CRT monitors? It looks fine (well, ugly, but without any weird effects) here on my LCD screens.

Does this produce a similar effect?

Nope, it's a flat panel LCD and yes, that image's background causes it too.

Hmm, interesting, I just dragged the image onto my other monitor and it doesn't shimmer there. :? The only difference between the two is that one is size, one is 18", the other 17", but both a re displaying 1280x1024 @60Hz.

Hmm, just checked in Nvidia settings and it turns out they are not both running at 60Hz, only the 17" one is...

Hah! KDE Display reckons they're running at 50Hz :roll:

Well, I'm not going to mess around with it now, that will have to wait for the weekend.

Also flat-panel on Dell notebook. Yep. I, too, get the flick on the other image.

Unlike Pokemon, though, I don't picture it causing any seizures.

Any chance the rss feeds and wiki block sit below the main menu?
I think, therefore I compile
