re: [advice needed] Using a huge distant monitor VIEW POST


I tried this for a bit, using a ChromeCast to edit code from my couch on the living room TV.

I had a hell of a time with it. I probably need new glasses (and a better TV), but I found it slowed me way way down. I already use keyboard-based code navigation which helped somewhat but any mouse-based operation was tricky to get right at a per-character level and I kept having to squint/zoom/get up and look at the TV just to know where I was.

Huge productivity drain for mild eye strain relief - and even that I'm not so sure was really significant. I was still staring at a screen that I found hard to read -it was just further away.

Of course, your mileage may very.


Thanks a million for the elaborate response!
