hi folks...just thought i'd drop in and say howdy do. howdy do! for the past few weeks i've been pressing my nose to the grindstone trying to clean up and organize my computer. it's really an unorganized, messy, eight year collection of files and quite a daunting task going through thousands upon thousands of files and hundreds of cd/dvd's but i'm making good progress. i've had to actually pull the plug on the internet so i could stay focused. i'm doing so well that i thought i'd come up for air and post something. here's an oldie i found.let me explain what's going on in the pic. this is my dual monitor setup in the corner of the basement. i've since replaced one of the screens with a wide screen. the time is 2:00, most likely AM. i sit here sideways with my feet propped up and my right arm on the desk. the mouse is elevated to reduce wrist strain. this works so well that i can sit for hours without moving. sometimes i just doze off for a half hour or so. i've had to learn to keep my hand off the mouse if i do fall asleep lest i click something i don't want to. the keyboard is in an awkward place but i couldn't type anyway so i got by with one finger hunt and peck. i've since found a stand for the mouse so i could move the keyboard directly underneath. my typing has improved somewhat. i use two fingers now. notice the be-boppa-rebop rhubarb pie.Posted Image

I thought I would post a pic of my main machine on my new desk. I also have 4 other desks in my room with 7 computers in total--3 laptops, 2 desktops, N810, and a netbook. My N10 is also on the desk to the left of the monitors.  I  also have 4 more security monitors besides the one in the pic but the others ones are color. There is not any crime here but it is nice to be big brother sometimes  :thumbsup: Posted Image

Posted Image Posted Image I'll bite, no pun intended.  My desktop showing Frank's desktop, complete with Chelsea my dog.  On the right is the Dell dual core running Gentoo Linux with a backup boot of Ubuntu 10.4 LTS (which never sees the light of day).  The black one on the left is "ibm_left" which is an IBM powerpc64.  It's a slow machine which is running Gentoo Linux, of course.  It actually runs better with no video card, but I have it hooked up to one anyways.  The monitor switches between them, but I rarely switch over to the IBM.  Typically, I just ssh to it.  I have both of them running boinc.

Updated shot:   I just got my new camera and got a third monitor a while back so I thought I would post another pic. Hopefully it may generate some more "real" desk shots. This is my main computer desk (I have 3 desks full of machines):Posted Image Posted Image

How's your desk looking Sue?@Josh: What's the power consumption of all this gear? :thumbup: Now serious... It sure looks very good. Now I wonder, I see a mouse and a trackball. What are you using the most Josh, any preference and why? I'm thinking about changing from mice to trackballs because all three of those creeping peeping fellas over at my desk are starting to wear out and need to be replaced soon.

I have no ideal how much power is being used. It is probably a lot considering I have 7 computers/laptops/mobile devices running at all times. As far as the trackball, I got one a few months ago and I am pretty happy with it. I find it is a lot easier to move across multiple monitors with a trackball instead of a mouse. A simple flip of my thumb and the cursor flies across the screens. So for me it seems to be a lot faster and efficient. The only gripe I have is that takes some getting used to using the trackball to select text. I originally got the ideal of using a trackball from Eric. He has been using one for years and said he found it easier to use. So I bought one.

Obviously you misunderstood when somebody told you to put in a window. :rolleyes:Side note: My boss had a P4 3.0GHz he was throwing away.  It used to be one of our work computers, but the company was upgrading.  Anyways, he decided to get a laptop for home and decided it was time to clean out the garage.  Fast forward to about two weeks ago.  My wife and I were browsing around Goodwill when I noticed A) a bowling ball that fit me perfectly for $6 and ;) a nice computer desk for $16.Long story short:My wife now has her own computer and desk on the other side of the home office.  I may try to piece together a panoramic later.
