Those monitors like great. Whats the resolution you run them at? They do look good side by side.
I've been stuffing about fine tuning them all morning. I've never had LCD monitors before. They look *awesome* now.
It's 3x19" LCDs @ 1280x1024. The middle one is connected to a KVM along with my mouse and keyboard. But it's basically 3 monitors on one computer (except when I use the KVM to switch to another computer, whereupon the two side monitors remain on my main workstation TRIMAXIAN, but the middle one moves with the KVM selection).
Does main workstation TRIMAXIAN have three video cards or does it have some tricky video card that supports three monitors? When you are coding do you have three monitors filled with code in front you. Like three different modules of code in view a once to save paging backwards and forwards all the time?
I'll post some pictures later today, or later in the week to explain how I lay out my windows while programming. But, in short, I have EditPlus on my left monitor, along with the VS.NET Class View and Property Window, Macro Explorer, etc. On the very far left is my start bar, I have this docked to the left of the screen, not the bottom as is standard. That way, my applications stack 'down' rather than 'across'. I tend to have anywhere from 20 to 40 windows open at a time (actually, I don't close applications until I start running out of HWNDs). It's better to stack down, in my view, because you can read the full title of the window. So, where was I, left window EditPlus, middle window VS.NET instances (I tend to have a few VS.NET solutions open at the same time) and on the right monitor I have my VS.NET Output, Call Stack, Watches, etc at the bottom of the screen, and I tend to have a few Windows Explorer windows there (say 5 to 10) and I use TortoiseSVN from them. I also tend to have Notepad open on the right, but this varies, sometimes it's in the middle. Generally Internet Explorer / Firefox runs on the right monitor, so I can code and build from VS.NET in the middle monitor and then in IE on the right monitor I can just press F5 to see my latest changes. I have SDK doco open pretty much all the time, although I often open this on my other machine, which does have a 'fancy' graphics card, with a 'clone' output, that I route through to two monitors..
Man, this is getting complicated...
To answer part of your question, there are four graphics cards in TRIMAXIAN. One is the onboard-AGP card, which has been disabled and is not used, another is a replacement AGP card which drives the middle monitor, the other two are PCI graphics cards, and they drive the two 'wing' monitors. So it's one card per monitor on TRIMAXIAN, nothing fancy.
I have 5 KVMs, 12 monitors, 15 computers, 5 routers, 2 firewalls, 5 isolated network segments... it's too tricky explain in 15 seconds or less... :P
It kicks some serious butt though! :)
The answer to your question about how my code is open is 'no'. In VS.NET I just work with one file on the screen at a time.
However, I tend to edit files with a combination of notepad, editplus, query analyser, enterprise manager, and vs.net, so I do often have three windows full of 'code'. For example I might have some XML or XSLT being edited in EditPlus on the left, and some C# open in VS.NET in the middle, and some DDL or MDX in notepad on the right, with some SQL in query analyzer on the left and some consoles in the middle running batch files from EditPlus on the left being checked into subversion via tortoise in explorer on the right.. etc. :)
