no problem with my other Acer X193W monitor.

What's a couple of pixels between friends.
Get some Dulux Trade paint which still comes in oil based versions, though I agree that water based paint is very much more common now than it used to be, even outdoor paint. However, it is not emulsion paint, and does not work like emulsion paint. Try some quick drying versions (ie water based) of Weathershield outdoor paint and you may be surprised.Nuke wrote:Ram wrote:lok1950 wrote:Back online and yeah that should be 1920x1080.

That would be 3840 pixels actually.
To the original point, claims that something is "environmentally friendly" has become a factor that I now react against like a Pavlov dog to a buzzer before an electric shock. It can mean that it is flimsy (uses less plastic), won't last long (it can be "recycled"), limp wristed (saves power), or made of sh~t (I've seen that literally).
I was shocked when I went to buy paint recently to find that it has become "environmentally friendly" - it is now hard to find anything except emulsion paint. You are meant to use emulsion paint (touted as "odourless") even outside and on wood (raises the grain) and metal (rusts). The only oil paint that I could find (labelled "weather resistant") seems regarded as "industrial" and only available in basic colours (white, black, bright red/blue/green) - as opposed to a thousand variants of magnolia in the emusions. Even these remaining oil paints are of crippled functionality (Google for moans about this). Maybe exterior emusion paint is passable in the warmer drier parts of the EU (where peeling paint has always seemed part of the ambience) but not in the damp cold place I live.
I have even seen wood burning stoves touted as "green" - apparently because of the connection with trees. But to chop down trees - the very icon of the green movement - burn them as fuel, and then claim it is environmentally friendly, surely takes the biscuit.
