What are them blue lights for?

(May 30 '10 at 06:56) connbruce connbruce's gravatar image

(1) for "geek appeal"; (2) to see what's on and under the desk. I have since moved them up to the ceiling so I can see pretty much everything in the dark.

tslib, 1st I will say I think that is an awesome setup and i'm jealous. However, your post is not a question, which this site is supposed to be for. Something like this is better posted over at geeks.pirillo.com as a discussion. Just a friendly observation.

(May 31 '10 at 18:08) MikeInVa MikeInVa's gravatar image

OK, that's a fair explaination, which is all I asked for. Thanks.

tsilb, there is a runtime error that pops up whenever I try the link. I suggest looking into that.

(Jun 22 '10 at 18:49) chadt4 chadt4's gravatar image

Fixed one possible reason, try again.

There was a bug in the way it detects whether you're a spider or not.

hey tsilb how much did you spend totally on you desk( lighting, desk, controll, and etc) and where did you buy all of it at.

(Jul 09 '10 at 14:12) hoffro hoffro's gravatar image

No idea, I've aggregated it all over the years. Desks: $600 (three corner desks with the corners removed), American Furniture Warehouse; lighting & remotes $80, Xoxide; computers homemade via Newegg parts (I dunno, like two grand?)

(Jul 13 '10 at 15:03) tsilb tsilb's gravatar image

That's allot of monitors. lol

(Jul 13 '10 at 15:11) sulljason sulljason's gravatar image

(Jul 13 '10 at 15:15) sulljason sulljason's gravatar image

Personally I find all them monitors pointless and a waste of money. On the other hand, if you have use for all of them then of course it awesome!

@nirmalpatel97: No, I have real computers. With parts of my choosing. Computers which allow me to have real productivity which makes real money. I write .NET software, which doesn't run on Macs except through Parallels or Boot Camp; and who wants to spend all day rebooting and virtualizing? I could go on, but I think I've made my point.

(Feb 13 '11 at 17:52) Madison Tries Madison%20Tries's gravatar image

@Chris - Indeed. It appears the latest OSQA update broke a bunch of img and a tags that were added via HTML. Now they work in preview but not in post page; and the Markdown tags show up in post page but not in preview. I don't see any way to make them work in both right now.

Fixed so they work in post page. Also, updated the pic. Thanks.

@ dazowen

Those are Asus 22" widescreen monitors. The specific model number is VW224U.

I picked them up a few years ago when they were $220 each. They've dropped to around $165 since then.

Click the picture button. In the popup, paste the URL to the photo. Which means you'll need to upload the photo somewhere first.

It is good to have windows in my room and behind my computers. Btw, its not a PC, the monitor on the right is just an external monitor that is linked up to my 13' Macbook :) But I have looking a bigger external monitor!

... Chris's doesn't count in this context as I've not seen a high-quality shot of his screens up close. What language(s) do you code in? I'm totally unfamiliar with Mac coding.

2 phones ??? lol what for? do you try to call yourself?

(Jul 13 '10 at 15:27) JoshR JoshR's gravatar image

I have 2 lines so I can call my self if needed :) I also have 3 routers so I can segment my wired from my wireless network. This is to improve network safety for my other wireless network that I use for when people come over. (3 routers makes it easy to separate the LAN's and prevent systems from seeing each other if there on the 2 separate LAN's Though not visible in the image, there is a printer behind the 2 routers on the desk and on top of that printer is another netgear router.

The linksys connects to the ONT for internet, the 2 verizon fios router has it's dhcp and a few other things disabled so I can connect a ethernet cable directly from it's lan port to a lan port (verizon uses the internet in rder to stream ondemand content as well as data for the wigets and the guide. (this allows those boxes to have internet with out me having to use their crappy router for anything else)

the router on top of the printer connects to the linksys and my main computers connect to that (it also had a built in gigabit switch) the second router on the desk is usually off but I turn it on to connect other peoples computers either wired or wirelessly
