How do I plug in my cintiq when there's a moniter using the VGA?

As far as I can see, the only output I have for my cintiq is VGA - My computer doesn't seem to have an hdmi port. Is has two ports above my VGA, [link] and I have no idea what they're for, but so far as I can tell, it's the only thing I can use. So how do I hook up my cintiq (24 HD) to my computer if there's already a monitor plugged in?

it looks like you have an dvi with a vga adapter on it now. Then going up an HDMI then a display port. Not sure what kind of card is installed in you computer, when you find out you'll know what the ports are...I can't really tell for sure from the picture.

don't use vga (can't play blu rays over it, and it won't look as good) you just need an adapter for display port to hdmi

Sure you can play blu-rays over vga. VLC media player plays blurays the same no matter what monitor you have.

Also if you have a regular midprice LCD screen it looks just about the same whether you use vga or hdmi.

Blu ray encryption was cracked like two weeks after its announcement or something. I don't believe in laws that tell me what I can't do with my own hardware, or how I'm allowed to play a disc I've paid for.

Civil disobedience is the duty of every citizen when laws are used to oppress people in the name of corporate profits.

it's also one's duty to pay people for their work :nod:
which you seem to be doing being that you paid for your disc and hardware.
(the laws exist because of outright pirates) :ahoy:

No, the laws exist to protect the interests of the few against the rights of many. Corporations that have become fat, lazy and complacent want to keep their ancient business model alive artificially, so they lobby for laws that oppress citizens to protect their own interests.

Sharing of information is a fundamental right. If "piracy" hurts your business, then you're doing business wrong. It has been proven many times that filesharing causes no measurable loss to rightsholders. But that's not the reason for the "anti-piracy laws", the real reason for them is that the traditional gatekeepers are afraid of the internet. They want to cripple the internet with horrible draconian censorship laws to protect their own interests, because they're scared of becoming irrelevant. They're scared that people and artists will notice how unnecessary they are, and that they will lose business.

See, they want to keep their middleman role where they make money from other people's efforts. They hate the idea that anyone can self-publish and crowdsource funds on the internet, without paying them, the middlemen. That's what the laws are really about, that's what the copyright mafia tries to accomplish. They want a crippled internet which they can control, they want back the power they had before the internet when they could control who got to publish music, movies or books. The whole "piracy hurts artists" thing is just an excuse.
