Jeff Atwood: "put a hard cap the level of replies that you allow. ... we did allow, in essence, one level of threading. There are questions and answers, yes, but underneath each of those, in smaller type, are the comments." I don't consider Stack Exchange Questions, Answers, and Comments to be levels in the same way threaded systems allow Comments of Comments. The presentation and interaction is similar, but the logic is different. It's not simply a hard depth limit. Each entity at each "level" is a different type of thing. This blog post allows only flat discussions: Comments of Articles. And the way I see it Stack Exchange allows only flat discussions too. Comments of Questions and Comments of Answers. It just feels different because multiple commented entities are displayed on a single page. As far as readability and etiquette, I like to start a comment with a quote snippet if it will aid understanding.

angusm wins!
I notice that motherboard has got VGA, DVI, and HDMI video ports. Can you use all three simultaneously to extend a Windows desktop to three monitors?

AMD says: "To enable support for more than 2 monitors, 'active' DisplayPort adapters/dongles are required (or monitors with direct DisplayPort connectivity must be used)." ATI Eyefinity Validated Dongles

When I first heard of Eyefinity, I was excited that card makers were finally taking triple monitor setups seriously. But, then I learned of the DisplayPort nonsense. Newegg seems to sell only one DisplayPort monitor. It's $185 more than a comparable monitor without DisplayPort! So that's $555 more to get three matching monitors. The $110 DisplayPort-to-DVI active converter hassle seems to negate the benefits of simplicity and cost-savings that I'd hoped to achieve with an eyefinity card.

Jeff, I think you've said before that you use 2048 x 1152 pixel resolution monitors. Is that correct?

Josh, I always do that. I always mess up some mundane detail.
