“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
– Albert Einstein
I know my HP laptop’s screen is unreliable and that the slightest change in viewing angle results in a shift in contrast and yet, out of laziness, I keep trying to edit photos on it anyway. I had been using an image that I knew was underexposed as my laptop background in the idea that if I’m viewing the screen correctly, the image will look underexposed. While this works, I have to be seated at my desk with my chair at a certain height. etc. etc. etc. It was just dumb and isn’t a good substitute for a decent screen. With my ADD, I kept forgetting that I needed to adjust the angle of the screen or that I needed to be sitting at my desk for it to work properly. I could just use my crt monitor hooked to the vga out and be done with it, but I carry the laptop all over the house as it has taken over the roll of tv and entertainment in our house. That being the case, I think it’s time for a desktop. Let’s hope Santa is in a giving mood this yr.
