Indecision

That Dell 24" 4K monitor is currently on sale for $1019.  But the sale ends today.  But I've just been paid, so today is actually a good time for me to buy it.  But I still haven't decided whether I'd prefer the Dell or the (lower quality but more versatile) Samsung.

On the fifth hand, the last couple of times Dell have had this monitor on sale, the end of the sale was followed soon after by a permanent price cut.  (From $1699 to $1499 to $1199.)  So it may be selling for $999 soon anyway.

2 No, I dithered too long.

3 Laziness is a good way to make certain kinds of decisions.

I have a feature request:

When you transform a square-bracket IMG tag into an angle-bracket IMG tag, could you include width and height for them?

In IE when I have a post with a lot of images, the comment entry box placement and the buttons below them are placed before the images load, so they end up in the middle of the post on top of the images.

Clicking on the box moves it to the bottom, but the buttons stay where they were, no longer anywhere near the box.

The reason is that IE's rendering engine doesn't know how big the images are before they load, because you aren't telling them. If you include width and height fields, then the rendering engine will place everything properly even before the images load.

5 Let me look into that.  I can probably fix it without needing to put the image sizes in the HTML.  (That's possible too, but the facility to upload zip archives makes it tricky.)
