Pearls

Pearl
Pearls of Wisdom

Pearls are the birthstone for the month of June. Pearls are associated with purity, honesty, and wisdom, as in the term “Pearls of wisdom.”

Pearls of Wisdom

That is a description of wise advice, concise pieces of sagacity that are metaphorically as precious as pearls. Originally, pearls of wisdom referred to bits of information or advice that the receiver truly found precious. Today, referring to information or advice one receives as pearls of wisdom is often, but not always, sarcastic, as the phrase is now considered a terrible cliché. The term pearls of wisdom dates back at least to the early 1800s.

Wisdom in Systems Engineering

Wisdom can take various forms of thinking. Strategic wisdom; system wisdom; decision wisdom; creative wisdom and so on. All these forms of wisdom can be utilised if they are organised to work together in a single, integrated solution.  This will get the best results, as all the effort will guide that wisdom to be used systematically to reach the same required goals.

Example of Toolsuite Errors

Sometimes when having more than one monitor connected you may see one of the following error messages.

Solutions

The following solutions can fix the problem without having to remove the monitors.

  1. Set the scaling of both monitors to 100%
  2. Restart your machine

Resolution

  1. Set the resolution of both monitors to be the same

Advanced scaling

  1. In Display settings click Advanced scaling settings
