Off topic monitor question

WRH
Happy holidays everyone!
I know this is off topic but this is a pretty sharp group...

Santa will be bringing me a new wide format monitor which
has lots of room to display windows side by side. The
thought occured to me however that it would be even nicer to
have two independent desktops side by side. Is this or
something like it possible with Windows XP?
(There is support in XP for multiple monitors but not,
as far as I know, multiple display streams to one monitor)

Given the choice, I would never work without multiple monitors again. While
I'm working on an XP Pro machine I don't use any of its support for multiple
monitors as I would presume XP to provide the "Notepad Edition" as compared
to features that would be provided with vendor provided software supported
on the video card.

Hello all; I apologize for being slightly off topic, but I have great respect for the knowledge in this group. I am about to begin developing a .NET application where reliability (i.e., uptime/availability) is important. It is going to be a distributed Windows app, which will be controlling some hardware devices. A nice parallel would be the "Smart Home", where a computer controls various items within a house - lighting, TV, heat,...

I am having some strange thread synchronization problems that require me to better understand the intricacies of Monitor.Wait/Pulse. I have 3 threads. Thread 1 does a Monitor.Wait in a SyncLock block protecting a resource. Thread 2 and 3 also have a SyncLock block protecting the same resource and after executing some code in their blocks they both do a Monitor.Pulse to hand of the locked resource back to thread 1. While thread 1 has...

Monitor::Enter and Monitor::Exit must be called in pairs. Is there a way to determine if Monitor::Exit has been called so that it does not get called a second time? The psuedocode below illustrates a situation I would like to implement. Essentially there are 2 monitors and the first monitor can be released in 2 different locations. This sample codes uses a booleen variable to make certain the first monitor is not released twice. My...

Hi, Below is a hacked up version of an example I found on MSDN. My only change was to add a third thread and some Sleeps. That's where my question(s) comes in. In the original it seems to work because Thread1 waits on Thread2 and vice versa, although I can't quite see how. Disabling Thread3 and leaving the sleep in works fine, processing is nicely throttled. Activating Thread3 and we enter a world of pain. I don't understand what the...

Dear Members, I have a problem in the concepts of Monit.Enter and Monitor.Exit (Before everything I should say that I know how to solve this problem by using Monitor.Wait and I do not need a solution. But this question sticks to my head as a conceptual problem) Suppose there are two threads T1, T2 running concurrently:

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
