I think, therefore I am. I am, therefore I sail

Finally, a standing desk on the boat!

I have had standing desks for years. In fact, I recently posted a photo I found of the standing desk I had at our Lake City house. When we moved onto the boat I was bummed that there was no area that was both compact and out of the way enough for a standing desk. A couple weeks ago I accidentally ran across the solution!

What I have set up now is a monitor mount with a tray on the arm instead of a monitor. It has been working great! The only major issue I have run across is the monitor height. Because I am using the built in laptop monitor I am looking down, which hurts the upper back after a while. Thinking now about getting a small external monitor to mount similarly above the laptop.

Lake City Desk – final

For some reason people often ask what my desk looks like. I even have an entire category dedicated just to desk photos. Unfortunately I had not had a picture of the final desk I had in the Lake City house, which was one of my favorites. I found one! This is my desk circa Jan 13, 2016.

It is a standing desk, built from a (musical) keyboard stand and a bass guitar case. It was rather enjoyable to use.

Workstation throwback

Just ran across this photo of a desk from years gone by. This was my workstation when I was working at Freshmuse as the Director of Engineering in 2012.

Desk with a view

Now that I am married I am again a landlubber :'(. The upside is that I can setup my full office space again. I have wanted a true standing desk for a couple years. I have been experimenting with the concept using a musical keyboard stand and my bass guitar case. So far I am really digging it. And being able to look out at my 1965 VW Bus is an added bonus.

Last days at Microsoft

This photo harkens back to late 2012 when I worked at Microsoft Open Technologies Inc. In the final days of my tenure there I had dismantled my workstation and dropped down to the MacBook Air and my trusty iPad 1st gen as an external monitor.
