      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Inverting your monitor image

Recommended Posts

Someone once posted a method of inverting a computer monitor image so that it appears you are inside the monitor, looking out. Anyone know how to do that?

 

Mind you, I am not looking for the suggestion of Ctrl+Alt+arrows to spin the image.

why would you want to do that?

 

Because I am a bit of a bastard when it comes to practical jokes.

 

This was done to me once and, once I got over the shock, it was pretty funny. Everything on the screen was functional, but appeared as if you were inside the monitor looking out through the screen.

Webcam image overlaid under the screen images? I dunno, never heard of it before.

 

It's not a webcam overlay. The screen appears as if you were inside your monitor, looking out. Words are backwards, left is right, right is left.

 

Except, it all still works.

 

Somebody has to know about this. It can't have been all the hallucinogens I did as a youth.

Hi,

 

It will vary machine to machine as it's usually controlled by the display softare. It's not on all PCs. It is used when you are using a projector to the back of a screen rather than the front. As this is not common any more, the option may not exist.

Assuming you are using a PC rather than a Mac, if you right click on the desktop you should get a menu item allowing you to modify the screen properties.

On mine, I have an "NVIDIA Control Panel". My current version allows a bunch of display options including portrat/landscape and inverting.

 

Good luck.

Not what he meant, but man what a cool idea. Why hasnt someone done that? It would be seriously mindblowing to come back from the pub and have an inverted image + looking thru the screen image at the view of the webcam.
