Re: Name a good tablet for reading comic book scans

1080p will be just low enough resolution to be annoying things will look okay but you'll have to keep zooming in a bit for text legibility.

Re: Name a good tablet for reading comic book scans

Seems theres loads of cheap standard 1080p screen devices around, which makes sense as its HDTV resolution. I had a quick look for Linx ones, since my 1010b served me well

Re: Name a good tablet for reading comic book scans

I paid for ComicRack, it was way ahead of the competition at the time. I never bothered trying anything else since then.

Re: Name a good tablet for reading comic book scans

I'd be worried about breaking something if I accidentally sat on a 14". I use ComicRack for my Android tablet. Incidentally, while my tablet is only 10", the resolution is 1200 x 1920. I still have to zoom in to read, as a full page at that res just isn't quite clear enough for the text (even with m...

Re: Arcade Imperfect... coming soon from Golem Books!

We're in the middle of refurbing our house and I'm supposed to be getting rid of stuff, but I ordered this yesterday. Been putting it off, but the previous books are so good I really don't want to miss it.

Re: Name a good tablet for reading comic book scans

If it's just for reading comics as a primary function, spec isn't too important, with the exception of screen being as high a res as possible.

Apparently SS has become a big seller on Amazon.
German WW2 memorabilia has always been popular, they had the coolest uniforms.

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

The Serpent episode 1. It must get a lot better, as that was dull but so many people are raving about it.

Re: Jet set Willy Online

It's made me sad to realise Ovine quietly slipped away, I have so many good memories from them.

You could try PMing some of the team:
AndyH
Smila

Not an Ovine game, but Smila did the graphics, I found my Armalyte remake when I was moving stuff out for the builders this week.

Re: The Star Wars thread

All they needed to do, if anything, was put out a statement saying they aren't aligned with nor condone all of the views expressed by their actors. Gina Carano is not Cara Dune. That's the thing about actors, they don't present themselves on screen, they're other people. We're not tuning in to see G...

Re: The MARVEL film and TV universe

Wandavision is good when Wanda and Vision aren't in it. The first three episodes are good as replicas of shows of the era, but not as a modern show. Those 3 could have been condensed into the first half hour of episode 1 tbh, with the opening of 4 tagged on to make it interesting. All of the good st...
