you talkin shit about 1680x1050? I’ll smack a bitch

It’s shit when it’s paired witha shitty TN panel from almost 10 years ago and compared to more modern 1080p IPS displays.

Nicely proportioned. Crown molding bonus. Good work.

What do you do with that bucket?

Not tidy and not a nice photo, but it’ll do.


Nothing. I don’t really have anything to display so it’s mostly random crap filling space. I’m going to re-do the crown molding once all the snows melt. It was my first time cutting crown molding and it looks like poop upclose.

It does it’s job for being second screen that displays chats and stuff

It somewhat did. But my eyes are thanking me. Fonts are so much crisper, colors don’t suck. Plus, the annoying buzzing is now gone.

What buzzing?

It was either the integrated PSU or the module for regulating the brightness that started buzzing about a week ago to the point where it gave me a headache after some time.

But trust me, that TN panel was utter shit, regardless of what I paid 9 years ago.

Rearranged and cleaned my office out today… Much to my wifes surprise lol

Before ( bearing in mind this is after a year of being the household dumping ground)

And the glorious after shots… Cause everyone always feels better afterwards, even if they didnt do the cleaning lol

Curtains go up tomorrow… but for now ive had enough, its time to work on the RC…

Just giving him a hard time. He’s 1337 pro pure Unix FreeBSD, not the broken, corrupt Linux OS


Your words, not mine. But yes all 7 computing devices in this picture run a BSD or BSD-derived OS (including the camera itself).


:wink: I can be your translator, fret not.

If I didn’t need GoToMeeting and Ring Central all of my computing devices would be running FreeBSD/DragonflyBSD


New desk, new me.

I put it this way just temporarily. I’m worried some day I’ll not be paying attention and kick one of the DP cables and screw up my GPU. Once my monitor arms come in I’m going to make the left one vertical and scoot stuff over and then hopefully I can fit the case on top of my desk, otherwise I might be saving up for a new case.

I love the idea for the cable management, but it really only works if your case is on top of your desk. Then you can keep all the cables tucked into the net, but since everything has to go down to reach the case, it doesn’t work. Once I get my case on top of the desk, I’ll be able to keep everything tucked away. I want to mount a power strip to the bottom so the only cable showing would be the cable for the power strip.

The holes on top help keep the cables very tidy on the desk though, which also kinda keeps them from getting jumbled up under the desk because they’re pretty much held in place.


I thought it was time to share my workspace. This is actually at work. I’ll probably add my Home Setup later. 3 1080p Screen running of a Fujitsu Laptop. It’s a tad old (4th Gen i7), but has 16G of RAM and a 250G 950 Evo. So it’s plenty fast. Currently running Fedora 29.
I added the mousemat this week and got provided the Logitech Set (K800 and MX Master). Until now i used my own Logitech MX Ergo and a MX Board that you might be able to spot in the background. I must say, for not being mechanical, the K800 is a really decent board. And not quite as loud/annoying for my co-workers. I’m undecided on the mouse. Having used a trackball for over a year, i’m not sure if mousing is for me. The MX Master is excelent though. But no software or remapability on Linux sucks.
Other than that, i’m really happy with the workspace my employer provides to me!


Your desk is very clean compared to the other persons’.
