comment Easy way of engaging non-programmers (i.e. designers) into using version control?
@Renesis: OK, the other people may overwrite my work, using VC or not using it. But with git they'd need to say --force and even if they mindless do it, I'll be warned and never lose my version. While git stores each commit as a whole, it usually uses less space than svn, since it compresses each commit based on any data it already has. This works often quite well also for binary files, for example I have about 1 MB *.doc files and their whole history takes only 360 kB.

You're quite wrong, e.g.: Overwriting - this in not a problem of version control, on the opposite, it helps you to detect it. VC systems store only changed lines for text files. - False for git.

comment How to use multiple monitors effectivelly
I know that it doesn't close it... but I'm not sure, if it'd be better placed there. There similar questions here and there, too. IMHO, the splitting of SE is a very bad idea, especially because of such border cases.

@Slomojo Given 3 similar (but different) questions here, it's quite improbable. @jmort253 I don't think it belongs there. I don't see any reason for closing, just let me get the answer and then close it. @qstarin I'm quite sure, I'll buy a second one soon, it's pretty convincing what the people say here.

My question wasn't meant to add any value (1). The primary purpose of a question is to get an answer. I'm really interested in that answer, that's why I asked. If the answer is important for anybody else.... I can't know, can you? Actually, I don't even care, that's my question, and if a judge thinks, it's not good enough, so it should be removed... after I get my answer. (1) That's not selfish, that's what question are for.

I'm surely stubborn, too. If the alignment of the mousepad was of any importance, somebody would surely ask. There are many questions concerning chairs here and on superuser. Why not?. I mean, do you really want me to look for a forum called multiple.monitor.programmers.stackexchange.com? What's the reason for restricting to standard questions?

Yes, the vertical place is a scarce resource on my monitor and with more of them in the standard arrangement it gets much worse, of course relatively.

@John I've never tried. My problem is that turning my head is just like switching desktops. I'm looking for a way to see more at the same time.

You didn't, but I did. My introduction may be understood as subjective as I don't really get the advantages. However, the question itself (I mean the sentence with the question mark) is about an alternative setup, and strictly objective, IMHO.

@Jonathan You're right. None of the other questions concerning monitors does, at least as far I saw. Productivity of programming is a good topic on programmers, isn't it?

@ChrisF: There's nothing subjective in the question - I'm actually asking if somebody's using a different arrangement. The only subjective part is the introduction.

I'm very sure, I'd often type and while meaning &. So this is even more error-prone. If somebody really thinks something like this could be useful, so they should provide unambiguous names like bitand and booland or whatever. Using plain and leads to as many errors as using = for assignment did.

comment Is obtrusive JavaScript ever ok?
OK, so I can only say... html+js is a plague (broken implementations ignoring strange standards) and I'd minimize the effort just as Thomas Stock wrote. Try to make it work perfect in the chosen browser (and don't choose IE6 :D) a and to be bearable in others. Instead of working around all problems spend your time on functionality.

You should kindly tell us WTF "obtrusive JS" means to avoid the misunderstanding. You've been already asked to do it (upvoted 7 times)!
