... annoying. Anyone know how to get rid of this message? :(
@OP: Surely it's not so bad, yes?
Lol. Seems somewhat noisy ...
I could see it taking up a large part of your screen if you have a smaller one. Not everyone has 1080p screens :/.
What are you using, a Commodore 64?
I'm using a machine I built myself with a 1080p screen, a $180 keyboard a decent mouse, and a $100 headset. But I'm a gamer. And not everybody in the world is a gamer. Until about 4 months ago, I was using a 1360x768 18.5" screen, and that's fairly large for the monitors you get with an OEM PC. It would take up a not negligible amount of screen space on that. Even more if you have a smaller screen, such as a laptop or something.
I'm on a laptop right now and it takes up one line. But I guess if you are easily annoyed there's not much to do.
If I may inquire, what features accompany a keyboard that costs $180? Must be pretty snazzy.
I pulled out my 14" laptop, and it takes up a decent amount. I can live with it. But it would take up more on, say, a netbook's screen (11"). I can see how it would be frustrating to have a decent amount of your screen taken away from you - not something I'm worried about, but I could see it.
How good do you have to be to play the Sicilian
