How are those Deck keyboards?

I like it a lot, don't "need" the glowy keys, but they are definitely a plus since they match my PC scheme. The construction of it is unsurpassed, everything seems like it was built to last to the next millennium, great quality. As far as feel goes, it's different than any other keyboard and very comfortable/quiet. One of my favorite features is the fact that the windows key is at the top right of the board.

basically, deck = awesome.

It's my "modification" made last night. I added a 120mm fan, the one I had kicking around was an LED fan. I'm thinking of cutting the lights as it is a little too bright.

A few years ago I made this mockup of how I wanted my setup when they get around to making reasonably sized and durable OLED flex panels:



Your idea actually achieves the effect with off the shelf kit, so I'm just going to have to clone it.

That looks way too curved. You want the focal point to be your head, not the keyboard.

I would so do this if it didn't totally gently caress up cleartype. It's too bad they don't make monitors with the pixel's orientation rotated by 90 degrees. If you wanted to use the monitor in landscape mode for gaming or watching movies, the sub pixel orientation wouldnt affect the image quality.

Trusty old Fujitsu Siemen AmiloD, hooked up to an even older Aiwa stereo through an ill conceived minidisc accessory that provides audio through USB.

The only desk that would fit in my room is a TV stand from ikea with legs bolted on, thus I have to have the mouse on a separate level to the laptop. The second monitor is a new addition, waiting on a male-male vga cable through the letterbox.

I got the mount from dell a couple years ago. They still sell it

http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/...19&sku=A0455578

I think thats the same price I got it for too. I don't find the monitor to be too far back but then again I really only use that computer for playing videogames.

The arm can swing out forward though, but because of the way it articulates, if I extended it all the way I'd either have to shift the mount over to be more centered on the desk or look at the screen at an angle. Does that make an sense?

It's a pretty decent mount. The only thing I'd fault it on is how the last portion of the arm, which is connected to the monitor doesn't lock into place. And thats the part that rotates between portrait and landscape. So if I knock my desk the entire thing begins to slump down at a weird angle.

Just for reference, its holding up a Dell 2005WP

My desk at the campus computer store I work at. Some of you may ask, but rubbersoul, why do you need two monitors? Well I will tell you, the one on the right is hooked to my MacBook which doesn't suck, and the one on the left is an old display we had sitting around hooked up to a rev. A craptacular Mac Mini the bastard child of Steve Jobs and Jeff Goldblum that runs windows better than OS X, which now runs the Digg swarm screensaver and plays movies/makes invoices when I sell things.

Multiple monitors is key to doing not much work.

It's an architect thing... they all write that way. I think it's some sort of standard or they have to take classes in school for it. I'm not complaining, it does look good and it's easy to read.

I can't even read my own handwriting unless I've written at 4 or 6 point "font". That's why I type everything, it's faster and more readable.

Yeah, all you need to take is a basic intro to drafting (non-cad) course. The first thing they teach you is how to write in the blocky architect-style font. I should start using it more often.

Oh yeah, even though I'm sure there isn't much interest, I am a GIS Analyst for a Land/Energy company and having dual monitors makes my job 50 times easier.

No, I made it. I just took an old printer cart cabinet I liked, drilled bolt holes and added a finished desktop to it and a vesa arm mount. I used to have this massive desk that I just ended up using to stack crap and wanted something easier to move. The wiring and the UPS is mounted inside of the cabinet.
