it should work:
though some say there is more ghosting than a 3d LCD.
also, the changelog of the nvidia vision driver on jan 2010 has "Fixed a bug that prevented CRT users from using 3D Vision. The Setup Wizard should now properly detect CRTs if it properly reports its timing to the operating system.", so the problems in the forum link above should be gone.
i don't have 3d myself, just giving links to info.

my second samsung also started acting odd after 2 years (the power LED turned off and on for many minutes and later hours before the monitor started working, so i had to keep the monitors on all the time if i didn't want to wait. it also made a slight buzzing noise).

my viewsonic is still working, but i dont know if its a coincidence that both my samsungs failed after two years (within 4 months of each other).

For the record I used a Mandrake/KDE combo for 4 months. It was a nightmare of epic proportions. ... it will never, ever be user friendly

Mandrake? is that even still alive? have you ever tried ubuntu? try it out and let us know how more user friendly it can be.

as for gaming, yeah, i have a feeling it may never catch up until opengl gets easier to develop games with; and opengl seems to be concentrating on the non-gaming 3D scene nowadays. plus anyone who has an ati card is basically screwed with wine; nvidia is the only way to having some games running.

1. Mother's fury as Google shows 3-year-old son naked in garden Jul 1, 2010, 01:07 rocketpcguy
what a stupid bitch. Google had this image online:
even if the face was visible, it's so low quality it could be any kid on the block. But thanks to his stupid mother, she takes the time to tell everyone his full name, and then provides a clearer picture of him to a newspaper so the whole internet sees and archives it. Now everyone in the world will be talking about her naked son, and when the boy grows up, google searches for his name will invariably bring this up.

if she just kept quiet about it, no one would give a damn, and we wouldn't even know his name.

i got a huge super wide monitor (26"), and its very difficult to glance at the author's name while reading the post. its like watching a tennis match. its tempting to stop reading the names, but i miss knowing if blue/ant/nin/bat/seph/etc wrote the post. most forums have the name on the left.
i miss my older monitor when browse this site.

the situation is a bit like Wowbagger, Sepharo and Amillennialist in a murder scene. There is a bloody knife with fingerprints of a known mass murderer, shoeprints of the shoe that the murderer is is known to wear, and bits of possible DNA evidence. Wowbagger and Sepharo are convinced that, although they can't be 100% sure, it's likely that it's that mass murderer. Amillennialist argues that they aren't 100% sure, and it's impossible to observe the incident, and no one can observe it, ever. But there is a story written by a man in his book who claims a woman who sinned by lying in the phone will result in a supernatural being going through the walls and killing the person, and carrying the soul upwards to be judged. Amillennialist says this story has to be true for sure because the other stuff the man wrote sounds plausible.

Also, Amillennialist, you say "we observe Life arise only from Life and Life's programs", then I am asking you again, who created the complexity that is the christian God?
You are not necessarily wrong to question the scientific facts, but if you do so then you must think Christianity is garbage. You'd have to be at most a deist, but instead you believe every word this bible tells you, contradicting everything that you say about needing observable evidence and just making you look foolish.

Amillennialist: i think all bibles may be different if you think my interpretation doesn't match the bible. Otherwise please explain why my interpretation which you quoted as wrong is incorrect:

a nice garden
"Now the LORD God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed. And the LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food."

a talking snake which god invented
"Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman"

encouraged her to eat
""You will not surely die," the serpent said to the woman. "For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."

She convinces adam to eat
"She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it"

God . . .getting suspicious
"Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden. But the LORD God called to the man, "Where are you?" 0 He answered, "I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid." And he said, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?""

God gets pissed
"So the LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, "Cursed are you above all the livestock and all the wild animals!
And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel." "

God punishes . . . all females (even those who never heard of this incident?) with the pain of childbirth and other things
To the woman he said,
"I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children."

and cursed adam (or just the ground?) too
"To Adam he said, "Because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, 'You must not eat of it,' "Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life."

so, please explain where I got it wrong.
