Can you put the monitor in front of the keyboard aka next to the pc how it should be and the tv on the right... PLEASE. This is making me very restless
That wallpaper looks migraine inducing... Are you not kicking stuff under the desk as well or are you short?
I like your screen-less calculator
When I went tenkeyless recently, I found, sometimes with my job, it is useful to have a keypad.
Microsoft one, cost about £25 I think, bluetooth. It's decent.
look how posh this thing is I've just found, and has a screen for the calc!
Temporarily re-locating my "working area" to the lounge, instead of being in the same room as my gaming PC...
I want to try having a working area somewhere that's just for work and university assignments, it needs to be a space that I do not share with my gaming PC, retro console, etc. I'm aware that the ergonomics of using a dining table & chair as a work desk absolutely stink, but this is just a trial for a couple of days to see how well it works out. There are just too many distractions in my regular "cave" upstairs, I just need some mental separation between "this is a place for fun things" and "this is a place for Getting Stuff Done".
We never use the dining table anyway.
Byron, the distractions are inside you
Trust me, I know!
But I’m trying to give myself the best possible chance of success. Lately I have done nothing productive in work (that is not hyperbole), and I’m incredibly far behind with university assignments. If this helps me focus and get something done… great. If it doesn’t… well, that’s fine, all I’ve lost is a couple of hours re-arranging some furniture. Even then it’s not a total waste: the room feels a lot more spacious and I always find it satisfying as hell to re-arrange furniture
In my experience it buys you a temporary reprieve, which is probably worth it?
I got a bit of a copper thing going on at the moment.
Keycaps: PBT Copper designed by Fatboycarney
Deskmat: Copper designed by Fatboycarney
Cable: Made it myself... colour matched Cerakote with genuine copper sleeving.
Office is finally set up the way I wanted (though I need to hoover, the carpet's covered in bits of packing material.)
Main desk is set up pretty much the way it was back at the old office, but I can look out of a window now instead of staring at a wall. The workbench behind me has a wireless keyboard and mouse plus my old monitor, connected to the same desktop - the idea is I can set up the book scanner on there and leave it up without taking up space on the main desk.
That looks worryingly grown-up.
's alright, these are the shelves at the back...
Jealous of all that space! I had a tidy over the weekend, so my box room isn't actually a bomb site for once.
Made myself some new speaker stands
Much better looking.
Yes, the posters have slipped in the frames - don't @ me, I know damnit: I need some better frames.
@Byron C the posters have slipped in their frames.
or a little tiny, tiny bit of blu-tac
