Look into the ppc machines. They’re more foss than the inspiron dev edition.

At least in general design.

So I ended up returning my second monitor. Just couldn’t get it to fit well no matter how I arrange stuff. Got my new keyboard, which helped free up a little space. Had my T420 set up to the left, but I was barely using it so I put it away. Added a little desk fan because it gets super hot. Ran my SD card reader beneath the case to free up mouse space. Got a Blue Yeticaster bundle.

Still trying to figure out the best way to form the Yeti. It works fine, but it looks kinda weird to me.

Also trying to find a different wallpaper. I only have a few that are 4K and none of them are feeling good at the moment.

I love that case… It’s absolutely nothing special, but damn, I love that case…

Ya I do too. Not too flashy. Relatively cheap. Super modular. Only downside is cable management, but you can keep it pretty tidy as long as you don’t fill it up with drives.

See I misspell or misuse stuff initially all the time. your vs you’re. Then I re read it 5 minutes later and bam right in my face. Have to edit it, as to not look like I am illiterate.

I was referring to your love of Windows.

I, too, love see through objects.

I just get frustrated when I write something that is utterly wrong. I point out my mistakes all the bloody time. It has nothing to do with what you posted. I am always hard on my self, because I minored in English. I don’t really practice my minor as I majored in computer science. So I focus more on that sort of stuff and not actually the books I want to eventually write. I started a book in college but nothing came of it. Stopped when I graduated.

Did you try it in portrait mode?

Ya, it was just too large. Too much head movement required.

I’ll probably get a 22" or something some time and put it in portrait mode. But it’s not really a priority.

Sorta got my home workstation setup. I need to get a real keyboard. Probably from WASD. I have a WX 2100 for my GPU, but I think I want to go for a higher end model to support two more monitors.

The monitors are a 43" 4K Dell (P4317Q), and two 27" 1440p Asus (PB277Q)

Ryzen 5 2600, Radeon WX2100, 16GBs of Kingston Fury, 512GB Adata M.2, ASRock B450, Fractal Design Define Nano, all Noctua fans with a Noctua U12S.

And of course, Linux. Fedora to be exact.
