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.

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.

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

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.

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

(May 30 '10 at 17:15) tsilb tsilb's gravatar image

@Ang: The splice is in the middle of the desk so I'm inclined to think that's an artifact of the panorama.
