I have this monitor and I still encounter Python code that I have to scroll horizontally for.

Honestly, be careful of neck injuries.

I went to a specialist physiotherapist. One of the top in my state. She was adamant that if you're using a multi monitor setup, that the main monitor be DIRECTLY in front of you, with the secondary one off to the side. This was to stop you always looking at a partial angle.

Better to spend most of your time looking directly straight, and looking over to one side regularly, than to always be looking on an angle.

That monitor is like it was designed to destroy your body.

Just be careful. It catches up width you. (Boom tish)

Really great advice!

I actually find that having the ultrawide has been better for my neck as I use the centre of it as a 16:9 coding area with two 8:9 sides for docs, browser etc. I move my neck less and only my eyes. It’s awesome!

Windows 11, and windows 10 with powertoys installed, support window snap areas. You can easily snap a window to the middle.

After using it for a year it’s impossible to work a wide monitor without it.

I've been using one full time for about five years now without issue. Even kind of like having to move around a little

Serious case of tennis judge neck.

I pity you - everyone should have access to hard tabs in their editor.

[-] [email protected] 14 points 2 months ago

I think you mean hard liquor.

[-] [email protected] 7 points 2 months ago

Hard liquor is a good substitute if you lack access to hard tabs.

It's time for a triple monitor setup then.

I'll need to motorize my chair so I can scroll myself over to the rightmost widescreen monitor.

[-] Agent641 11 points 2 months ago

Just motorise the whole monitor so it slides to the left as you type. When you press enter, it snaps back to the right and makes a loud 'ding'.

Make the monitor adjust to your eye position, not the vice versa.

That ain't pep. That ain't black, isort, flake8 goodness.

Just delete it it does nothing of value, install those extensions as commit reqs and they'll fix it on push lol

[-] [email protected] 2 points 2 months ago

Seeing un-blacked python code is like finding out someone doesn't wash their hands. Literally what the fuck

I'll die on the hill that 120 is a much more sane line length than 80. It's the one of two pep guidelines I always ignore. It isn't the 70s anymore

[-] TunaCowboy 5 points 2 months ago

You don't have to die on any hill, you can just set it to whatever you want.

100 gang (but not for python, just let black defaults do its thing)

God damn, perhaps you need one of these ultrawide large format displays that are used for advertising lol
