Thank Rick! How do I check my pc's native resolution?
P.S. - I'm in Stratford so yeah - lets meet up!
going out with a buddy today looking for a snowy owl,and possibly a bald eagle area and deer
Hey Will. To check PC's resolution capabilities: From memory you use Windows. Just go into Control Panel and (depending on version of Windows), "Adjust Screen Resolution" in the Display section. (Just type resolution into the search bar of Control Panel if you can't see it straight off.) It will show you what it is currently set to and give you the option of changing to another resolution. The Native Res is the one that has Recommended alongside it. Well that relates to the monitor I think, but it will list ALL the resolutions your Graphics Card is capable of. SO you just have to check that it is capable of outputting a Resolution that Matches the Native Resolution of the Monitor you intend to purchase.
Good luck with stalking Birds today .... with that Ice Storm passing through! My Mother-in-law and my Sis-i-l both live in Guelph and have power outage and Trees down. We are going down there 26-27th. Oh, BTW, I knew you were in Stratford and I've just changed my location from Collingwood to Meaford.
Almost 2 weeks ago, I went out with my buddy from Wasaga Beach in search of Snowy Owls. He knows a great place where they are regularly sighted. Well, we did get to see a few but only one in good light and the other two it was almost dark and driving with full headlights on. These couple of images, I just uploaded to Flickr only to show you. They are merely souvenir shots and NOT good technical shots.

As a side note. To get these photos, I was driving my Toyota Matrix and we were on rural lanes that had a good covering of snow and some ice. Two days later, and more snow had fallen, my friend went back out on his own in his Toyota Echo and on the first lane he went (where my shot in the field was accessed from), his Toyota Echo bellied out .... He spent 3 hours, on his own laying in the snow, digging all the snow out from under it so he could get the wheels down onto ground for traction. He was soaking wet and freezing cold. Pride wouldn't let him use his cell to call his wife because her last words to him were ... Don't get stuck!" to which he replied fatefully, "I've never gotten stuck in all my 64 years!" ..... Bahahaha
Now those laneways are part of the Ski-doo trails :
