Q: I have a brand new Mac Mini that I’m using with an older Apple Studio Display. I’m using the provided adapter and it seems to work fairly well, but… sometimes… there’s… some… itching. In a place where you don’t really want there to be any itching.
A: Oh. But it’s just an itching, not a burning?
Q: Well, sometimes there’s a burning. When… when I change resolutions.
A: I see. Is it possible that it’s just resolution chafing?
Q: Resolution chafing?
A: When resolutions rub against each other as a monitor’s resolutions are changed.
Q: Uh… I don’t think that’s it. It’s an itching… in my groin.
A: I… realize that. I’m just wondering if maybe you’re sitting really close to your monitor.
Q: Well… I do sit pretty close to it.
A: Are you… touching it?
Q: Um… parts of me.
A: Hmm. You know, I think this is where I refer you to a specialist.
Q: Oooh! A specialist! Yay!
Q: Uh, yes, I don’t have a Mac Mini and I have a newer Apple Cinema display, but I saw the previous question and I wondered… am I not supposed to be rubbing myself up against my 20-inch?
A: [snort] Heh-heh. Heh. Dude!
Q: What? I… oh! Ha-ha! I just… Ha!
A: You just said… ha-ha!
Q: Ha-ha! Ha! Ooooh, man! “Rubbing myself up against my 20-inch”! Ha-ha! Ooooooh!
A: Ha-ha! Ha!
Q: Whooo! No. No, really! Ha-ha! No. What I meant was…
A: Yeah, what did you mean! Ha-ha!
Q: Ahhh… What I meant was… ha-ha… should I not be humping my Apple 20-inch monitor. That’s what I meant.
A: It’s a Cinema Display, not a Studio Display, right?
A: Oh, yeah. You can rub yourself all over those babies. Have at it.
Q: Oh, great! Thanks!
Q: I’ve got a Sawtooth G4 with a tape drive backup system… but screw all that! Let’s talk about the Super Bowl, baby!
A: Yeah! Super Bowl Sunday! Alright!
Q: So who do you like?
A: Uh… I like… the, uh, blue guys!
Q: The… Patriots, you mean?
A: Right! The Patriots!
Q: By how many points?
A: Oh, uh, they’re going to take the green guys in the third period by, like, a million runs. No doubt.
Q: A million…
A: Um… baskets.
Q: Yeah. You don’t really know anything about football, do you.
A: No. Actually, I’m going to spend most of Sunday afternoon watching hot Latin chicks on Telemundo.
Q: Ah. Do you… speak Spanish?
A: Um… no. But that’s never affected my enjoyment before.
Q: Hmm. I guess there’s no reason it would.
