    That should be 2560x1600. It seems that my monitor no longer wants to use native resolution via DisplayPort...All I did was mount it on a desk arm!

    I was going to replace it when I eventually upgraded my GPU, but I wasn't planning to do that for another 6 months at least!

    It goes garbled af

    I've tried three different DisplayPort cables (one of which I've been using for ages), all DP GPU ports, and a Type-C to DisplayPort cable from my work laptop (which I was also using earlier...).

    Right now I have two connected, but it makes no difference whether I have one or two connected.

    This monitor is already pretty old TBH and occasionally it would show a garbled image - I'd have to turn it off and then back on again in order to clear up the picture. I think it's just dying a slow death tbh.

    How about if you connect via something other than DP? Same issue?

    Yep! But the CPU seems to be stable at the moment... unless I do something CPU intensive...

    Only the DisplayPort connector supports the full native resolution of the screen. The DVI ports appear to be dual link, but internally they're only wired for single link (and I've tested them in the past). HDMI works just peachy, it's what I'm using now, but it only supports a maximum of 1920*1200. I haven't tested any other inputs, but I assume they're probably OK (up to their maximum supported resolution).

    so had the appointment 7 HOURS ROUND TRAVEL TIME - an hour waiting at the hospital - a 5minute bloody appointment that could have been done on a zoom call. only to be told yeah there's nothing we can do its not serious enough to require surgery because of where the disk is bulging. and the best we can do is prescribe you diazepam. for when your back goes again.

    Awwww man this really bugs me, my partner has a heart condition and frequently we've been to appointments taking the entire day for a 2-3 minute long appointment. It seems like such an inefficient use of resources that could be done over the phone.

    The worst one was when we got an appointment letter, left early to make more of the day in Bristol but got stuck in traffic for 5 hours the way up.

    When we finally got there the doctor toddled in 15 minutes late chewing his sandwich and asked what we wanted... YOU INVITED US!!

    "Oh right... well I won't take up anymore of your day, you'll probably like to have a chilled afternoon, we'll get you back in 6 months for a review"


    for me:

    Someone I don't know asked me for a favour at work, I suspected they'd do a lot of the heavy lifting because of said favour but nope. Arranging to meet them and they're like "Yeah if you could come to me I'm sat in (super vague location) I'm running late today so can't come to you, on your way could you also (stuff I'm not responsible for)"

    *immediately stops replying to emails*

    XLOOKUP is amaze. Cheerio to the majority of INDEX / MATCH shenanigans!

    Actually quite liking a lot of the new functions in Excel. FILTER and SORT are great.

    That would be ideal for this kind of scenario. Shame I'm on office pro 19.
