The Pros and (Mostly) Cons of Upgrading to a 4K Monitor

I'm in the process of getting back into photography which will mean a new camera, more on that in a later post. But the first step for me was a new computer, one with the horsepower to handle a modern day camera and its RAW files. Along with the computer comes a new 4K monitor. 4K is great for media consumption, right? Your characters on your favorite show or movie really look detailed and realistic. Scenery looks wonderful. Everything looks great, right? Wrong. You know what doesn't look great? That photo I took in 2012 that I thought was sharp but is very much not. I transferred over my past catalogs of photos over to Lightroom Classic and eagerly began opening up some of my favorite photos. At first I was happy with how the colors looked and how the scene was composed. Then I noticed it was a little soft. Well I had just gotten a new contacts prescription so that must be it.

Big Week Ahead

So, in case you're not a Sharks fan, the Sharks have made the playoffs. Again. We're also Pacific Division and Conference champs. Also, again.

I hope the HTML line of DannyHeatly, Joe Thornton, and Patrick Marleau come out ready to play, and Nabokov shakes off that disappointing Olympics. So, until the outcome of Wednesday the beard that's been growing since Saturday stays. It's status will depend on the Sharks performance; a good game with a loss will require some analysis, a win keeps the beard, and a loss means out comes the razor. Game 1 is Wednesday, and though I sound cynical, I'm excited; I want to believe!
Drupalcon is set to start this week, though the meat of the conference starts next week. Looking forward to meeting other Drupalers, learning some new stuff, seeing what Drupal 7 has to offer, and just hanging out with other Drupal Geeks. Hanging out with a Yelp Elitist as we tour some SF eateries this weekend. Some might be an understatement, but I'm glad it's a walking tour. Good times ahead!
