My Workspace

Friday, September 16, 2005 at 7:10 pm | Comments off

I know a "show your workspace" meme went around a couple of months ago, but since I never got into the fun, I decided I'd post mine now:

My workspace

Photo doesn't really do it justice, but those are dual Dell 20.1" flat panel LCD screens. We're talking screen real estate, baby.

You can also view a larger resolution photo with notes stating what everything is on Flickr.

Go ahead, post a link in the comments to your workspace. I'd love to see it.

Wow. I hate you.

Not really, just a little jealous. Of course, I'm a sophomore in college with just about no income. Looking for the occasional web design gig, but with no time to actually work on it. Quite sucky, really.

Though, I am enjoying the beaches of Daytona Beach, Florida.

Need a partner? ;)

The Room/Office. Its pretty nice; 8 foot built in table with 19in flat panel display. I really love my uncluttered work area ;o).

wow, Martin, I wish I could keep my desk/workarea nearly that clean. I'm so much more productive when I clean my desk, but it always seems to pile back up within a week.
Any tips?

What I found is if I just take a few minutes every night before I go to bed to tidy up my books/papers it seems to work best. Usually the longer I wait the less inclined I am to cleaning it the next day.

Wow ryan, NICE desk, I only got 1 17" LG LCD monitor, a 160Gb HD, a Celeron D 2.4Ghz(soon getting Athlon 64 X2 or Penitum D, and it is home built) and a 512Mb MP3 Player. Totally jealous of the dual 20.1" monitors, and my desk is not nearly as clean, but I guess mine is pretty good for a 14 year old webdesigner, and I bought it all myself.

Although, my mouse pad does top yours, I got a CSS mouse pad thats pretty "sick"!

Hey, I started this meme a long time ago... I doubt this is the same one carried over. It'd be cool if it was, though.

Man, I want your workspace. Although, having three monitors and not being able to do quality gaming on either one of them has got to be disappointing :P

Nice monitors, I recently got one exactly the same as them. Only one I'm afraid but it's enough for me, I just upgraded from a 15" LCD so I've now had to get used to not maximising every window and instead making extensive use of the "Tile Windows Vertically" feature, especially useful for MSN convos.

I play games on mine though, Doom 3 at 1600x1200 at night with the lights off in 5.1 surround sound, now that's what I'm talkin' 'bout!

Since I don't actually have a blog any more, I'll give a quick link to my workspace here if you don't mind. It's not tidy and I'm not gonna tidy it any time soon, I'm off to Uni in about a week anyway so most of the stuff will come with me.

Talk about a room of one's own. I am afraid to show my husband because he will be very jealous! We have four computers in our tiny SF apartment, but your set up has us beat---nice.

Wow, I love your edit option when you post a comment. It eliminates writer's remorse in instant gratification cyberspace. Very clever.

Nice workspace, it reminds me a lot of mine.

If you ever get fed up of swapping between two sets of mice & keyboards when switching from your PC / Mac, I would recommend you try out Synergy.

Install the Synergy daemon on your PC, the Synergy client on your Mac and as long as they are networked together you'll be able to control your Mac through your PCs mouse & keyboard as if it were an another screen.
