Seeing Double

Today I started work for the summer. All went well and I’m especially pleased not to have to be doing any formal logic/grammar/etc for a long while! After I got home I mowed the lawn (which was looking more like a meadow before hand) and then had tea. After that I had a play with setting up a dual screen system on my Linux box. It was actually surprisingly easy and only simple modifications were needed to the “Screen” section of my xorg.conf file as below:

Option “TwinView” “true”
Option “TwinViewOrientation” “RightOf”
Option “MetaModes” “1024×768,1024×768”

N.B. This will only work for newer Nvidia graphics cards (using the official drivers), different options will be needed for other makes.

Dual Screen

I also picked up my new sunglasses at lunchtime, even though they were only cheap (as far as prescription ones go anyway) I’m pretty pleased with them. Apparently I look like ‘Agent Smith‘ in them, I’m not convinced though, my glasses aren’t nearly as cool as his!
