Dear people who change the resolution at work:
LCD monitors have one resolution. That is all. It is not debatable. There is no judgement call, no opinion, no possibility of misunderstanding. LCD panels have one fixed resolution. Yes, they will sync up at lower resolutions (and sometimes higher, which must be seen to be believed). But they will look like crap at anything but their native resolution or an even divisor thereof. So, a panel of 1600×1200 resolution could look decent at 800×600. But, a panel with resolution of 1280×1024 will not look good at 1152×864, no matter how much you may wish it to be so.
Thank you for not being a tool.
