        It doesn't help if i watch it on my 15 inch laptop... Even on 24 inch screen it is very hard to see.

    This was really helpful! I was wondering how you decide when to use $HIP and when you use $PDG_DIR. I can't get $PDG_DIR to work in many nodes, but the help page recommends using it over $HIP.
