Recommended modern models:
X220 - 12", 768p, cheap and light

I'm opening up a new one because the current (now old) one is about to die.

What should I do about my current monitor situation? Should I buy an old HP LP2475W monitor to match my second monitor? An anon said to buy a used 30" 2560x1600 monitor off eBay, but they are a bit pricey and not a lot of them are being sold at a good price.

France is an example to us all

From the 2018 school year France is banning smartphones at primary schools and secondary schools.
Personally I agree with France. A child under the age of 18 has no need or use in owning a smartphone.
Parents should give kids a basic phone (pic related) incase of emergancies.

People are complaining that the law would be hard to impletment.
I say bullshit to that. People are lazy and unwilling to put in the effort.
As a school make the following rules
> 1st time caught with a smartphone 100 Euro fine
> 2nd time time caught with a smartphone it get's confiscated
> 3rd time caught with a smartphone child gets a month of detention (which is not sitting around on your ass, but hard labor; like cleaning the school)
> 4th time caught with a smartphone suspension for 1 week

When I was at school (early 2000s) the school made it clear.
Mobile phones are not allowed in school, if you bring one to school and it get's stolen, tough luck it's your own fault.

>Thanks to BitsBeTripping, we now know just how good the new TITAN V is at mining cryptocurrency and its truly a beast. They put the new TITAN V through its paces, with a huge 77MH/s mining Ethereum when overclocked and just 213W of power consumed. Considering AMD's newish Radeon RX Vega 64 can be pushed up to around 43MH/s and with much more power consumption, the TITAN V is a freaking compute beast.
