Bah Retina is so 2012.

Lets look to 2013 and

4K!

Of course Ultra HD TVs will set you back about 20K and content is rather expensive as well (streamed it could max many data caps in just a few showings).

But think about the ability to count individual nose hairs on a 84" tv from 30 feet away.

Or if we could game at that resolution we could melt a hole in the floor (CHina Syndrome Anyone?)

And by the time we save up enough money to buy a 4K system 8K or 24K or something newer will be out.

Oh well. If only content on Cable/Satelite was not a majority of 480 or 1080i we might be able to adopt better resolutions but until then I have to concure....


Retina is the only resolution currently we should discuss.

As a professional, you, are your one and only asset. Without integrity you are worthless, but with it, you are priceless.

So this guy, Tony Pisculli at hawaiishakes.org, created a spreadsheet for writers to develop more consistent writing habits. It's awesome. I found it on Mur Lafferty's site murverse.com. Because I love messing with spreadsheets, I thought I'd create a version. And now I'm sharing it with you. Put in your word count each day. Target is at least 250. The more days in a row you go, the higher your score for the month. It's pretty cool.
