I am fairly new at welding so I just came here for some advice.So I have this welding machine.It only has a knob to make amperage higher and lower. I use 2.5mm electrodes,the metal i tried welding on to was also about 2.5mm thick.I cleaned it and tried and at first i got a lot of sticking,so i amped it up to the electrode recommended setting of 70, and it was sticking like a motherfucker, so i got it higher to about 80 and then beyond. I started getting a bit of a splatter and the arc was really hard to make upon contact.
My general questions are:
-Is getting an arc the first time you make contact just a thing of practice and i have to do 1000 more welds or is the machine here problematic?
And how can i improve a weld that looks too bulgey, i will show in a picture below but its just a small "hill" its not flattened like i see at a normal weld.

I need help with this.
I have this 8 years old desktop computer (¬¬ i cant afford a new one ¬¬) and recently i bought this 18.5 inches LG LED monitor, 19M35A, with a resolution of 1366x768. I have a GeForce 7300GT (i know, i know, its prehistoric). The monitor has a standar VGA connection.
My problem is that the "screen area" for programs is too small. The start menu almost cover the entire screen ¬¬. I work with graphic design, mapping and CAD software so i need more "screen area" for maximizing the software.
My question: Am I doing something wrong? Or this is the best "screen size" i can get with this resolution (1366x768)? If i upgrade to windows 10 (if i can...) can i get a bigger screen size? Or i need a bigger monitor? Or i have to return to windows XP for a "bigger screen"?

I love crafting, and I am planning on making a sculpture out of paper mache using paper, obviously. Ill seal it, prime it and paint it after. I've done this sort of thing before, like for shitty school projects, but never this big. It will be a life size woman-deity. I need to know about your experiences, thoughts and, most importantly, what is the best way to make the STRONGEST paper mache recipe I can?
