My new desk...

...or at least what I did to my usual desk at the weekend...

marypcb and I both went dual monitor at the weekend, thanks to codepope having a little bit of a clear out. So now I have a pair of 17" LCD monitors, hooked up to a pair of Radeon graphic cards. Using XP's built in tools, they're actually a single desktop, so I can have research in one screen, while I write in the other. Or Dreamweaver in one and a live site view in the other. Or email and a Friends view in one, while I read news, do CiX and chat on Trillian in the other.

Bolting the panels onto the stand was, err, non-trivial. But it works. I now need to get it adjusted just the way I want.

Well you get the picture. Just think of it as superfluous technology in action...




A desk

The eagle-eyed will spot the Lego and the cunningly hidden Cthulu, as well as various left over ID badges from clients and conferences.

Re: Welcome to the club
I've got a couple of 19in monitors attached to my PC, but as I really don't make that much use of the facility one of the monitors is going to be used on another machine I'm in the process of assembling.

So what are you excavating under the hills then?

very cool!
If I used anything other than a laptop, I'd want dual monitors. :-)

*sigh*
not both of us; I have to get my graphics card fixed, which means being without a PC until it comes back and I can't afford to do that, so I have one working screen and one that's turned off. Simon's machine looks nice though.

All fixed now. And both our colour temperatures are evened out...
