Summary – Ever wonder what my workplace at blog-central looks like? Right – I didn’t think so. I’m a hardware & software fanatic and here’s part of my proof. 😉
Here is where I spend way too much of my time
Two laptop computers (#1 Win 8.1 and #4 Win 7)
Each has an external monitor (largest, #3, is 30″)
For a total of four screens
A single keyboard (#5) and mouse (#6) used for both PC’s
As shown by red X‘s, laptop keyboards|touchpads aren’t used
The result is one powerful virtual computer
Each PC runs UltraMon for external monitor control options
Each PC runs Synergy
Synergy enables one KB & mouse to serve both computers
Even to the point of copying and pasting
Contents of one PC’s screen to the other
(via each PC’s clipboard)
When the mouse is dragged to the far right
It eventually stops at the right edge of #4’s screen
From here, moving it left
Moves the cursor across all four screens
Stopping at the left edge of #1
Keyboard works on the screen where the cursor is
Synergy makes this collection a single virtual entity
Software – duplicate & unique programs on each PC
Storage – about 15 TB of which 12 is networked (#8)
Over nearly 300K images + multiple backups add up
There’s an UPS (#7) to keep power glitches from causing problems
Even more stuff – printers, external drives, etc. – not shown
Is all of this necessary?
You’d think all of this “stuff” would result in better posts
Just doing my bit to help the economy 😉
