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.

Pyramid of monitors

I ran across this photo while looking through some folders. This workstation is from 2013. Hard to believe that was 2 years ago!

Dual monitors at Drip City

Finally found the USB extension and I am now able to have dual monitors at coffee shops!

Today I tested this out at Drip City coffee and other that draining my battery faster (duh, powered off USB) it worked out perfect! Not a full replacement for my 6 monitor house setup but great for on the go and working from coffee shops.

The monitor is an AOC. It works fine but I would like to replace it with a couple Lenovos which are much higher quality, smaller form factor, and full HD.
