raccoon city, your signature is getting ridiculous

Seriously, I have a 32” 4K Monitor and I can see ONE post because of your massive signature.

Look how much space your 4 signatures take, it’s just annoying if someone makes threads so much longer than they need to be.

Could this have been a PN? Yes.

Thanks for considering.

It's because you have a 4K monitor.

I have a 32" 1080P monitor and my signature looks fine.

I'll tweak my signature.

 

EDIT:

Now my signature will look similar to before if your monitor is 1080P (and your browser is at 125%), but if your monitor is 4K, my signature will take up less real estate.  :BEER:

It seems to be a matter of window width. On my 4K monitor with a full-width window the signature is huge. If I narrow the window to 1/3 of my screen the signature is really small. This is the case with your screenshot too, L4M4.

Take control of your browsing experience.

1. Install Ublock Origin in your browser
2. Right Click on the image element that you don’t want to see anymore and choose “Block Element”
3. Confirm that the right element is highlighted and push the “Create” button to filter the image
4. Never see the image again on that browser

Ublock Origin also blocks YouTube ads. The first thing I do on a new computer is install a non-default browser and then add Ublock Origin to it.

I thought that this might not just annoy me but also people who don’t use those plugins

Just opened a webpage in Edge to see if it looks different than Firefox – good god, how do people use the Internet without an AdBlocker? 40% of the screen-Real-Estate is taken up by distracting ads…

Oh nice! Yea Youtube Vanced is the only way I can stand using Youtube on my mobile device.

I believe there was some mild developer drama and Ublock Origin is actually the branch maintained by the original author. I don’t remember all the details but I switched to Ublock Origin after reading about it. Maybe it makes no difference at this point, I don’t know.

Adblock+ takes care of that image, right click on image and chose block element, Easy Peasy.

Yeah, but if you ever need to uninstall Adblock Plus, and sometimes you're forced to, you lose all of your customizations that you made.

It doesn't happen like that with uBlock Origin, which is why I quit using Adblock Plus.

I could be wrong, but I seem to remember something about Adblock Plus developers accepting money to whitelist individual ad-delivery URLs.

I still use an old CRT monitor on an old first gen 486 at a whopping 300mhz. Got 64 megs of ram though.

As you can see, I have way more important issues than someones signature. Wink

I still have a machine like that, but not as a primary machine, just one for messing around with older hardware. That thing is so far past its use by date, it’s filled with vulnerabilities that will never get patched out. I hope you don’t do anything important on that machine.

Must be a DX-12 300

Such a machine would not be able to render modern websites as modern browsers would not work on it, it would be a feat to get a modern Windows version on it. And if you do it will take forever to load anything. Plus the RAM required (virtual memory) will more than fill a HD from the time (if it still works)

I thought it stopped working with FF once that “Quantum” crap came out. “Incompatible”…

Okay, I tweaked my signature some more.

It will take up even less room on a 4K monitor now.

I was being sarcastic. Big Smile

No I don’t have any machines like that anymore. Though I do still have an old IBM laptop running Windows. 3.1 for workgroups. It still boots up as long as it is plugged in. Batteries shot craps years ago. I use to do a lot of writing and I would use that old thing and a version of Lotus I think it was. Back up all my work onto 3.5” disk. LOL Use to call up software companies to get a free “trial version” of their software on 3.5” disk, just so I could wipe the disk and use them for back ups.

I miss the good old days of bulletin board systems and modem squeals in the backround.

I don't really feel that way about high CRI.

It's just that so many people on BLF have posted such extreme positions on high (and low) CRI that I thought I'd make fun of the situation.

Also, it's a reference to the John Wick series.

In those movies, the Russian mafia did all of those things to John Wick, the protagonist.

Ah, i get it now.

A few years back people were complaining about my signature, it had a trunk full of flashlights (from Home Depot) and another flashlight related picture i don;t quite remember, seems the image quality was too high and people didn’t yet have single digit megabit internet (dialup 56K must have still been a popular thing in the mid 2010s).

Such is life Tired

Ugh, how I hate Chrome and all its derivatives. Guaranteed, like once a week I can’t even get to gmail/goggle/etc. because of “too many retries”, with a lame suggestion to clear my cookies.

I feel more like tossing my cookies every time I have to use it.

Don’t even get me started on Edge, though.
