9 Ways To Calibrate Your Monitor

What you see may be what you get, but it's not necessarily what everyone else gets. I was reminded of this when I bought a gaming monitor. I'd originally intended to get a 4K monitor of some kind, but I decided to go for speed over size. The one I did get can render my games at a brisk 144hz, and my games have never looked better.

The query string in the DOM has always been a bit awkward, why there isn't a standard method of parsing it is beyond me. The normal route most people follow is to convert it in to a simple array of Key/Value pairs. This allows you to then access the values of the query string using the array accessor syntax. //domain.com/index.html?key=value var value = querystring_array['key']; Still a little clumsy isn't it? Wouldn't it be great to be able to just retrieve the value from a normal JavaScript/JSON object?...
