Alright, so I've regained some desire from long ago... Tweaking my desktop and theme a bit, to fit 'me'

First, here is a pic of my desk about a week or so ago (got some major upgrades shipping in and some received, will update);

Here is a current pic of the desktop i've thrown together today;

Now to explain how that's custom or why its quite plain is; I like things clean and its very personal to me. Desktop explained below;
Carpe Diem - Seize the Day = This is tattooed on my right fore arm.
Carpe Noctem- Seize the Night = This is tattooed on my left fore arm.
EN4CER . . . Just one of my online aliases :-)

Now the Rain Meter is still a work in progress, but will get there and update once I am there. On top of this, I use Dexpot so it's really like I have 5 desktops in total, allowing me to REALLY sort out my running programs and stay un cluttered.


Now, what do you use?

As you can tell, I only have a cell phone. >.>

The desk I put together myself because of size restraints. 2 27" screens. (wish I had room for a third)
Anasi Keyboard and Naga Epic mouse, generic mouse pad.
A shit ton of stuff on the desk, and that's my sidekick at the bottom.

I dont like 1 monitor setups anymore, haha too accustomed to 2+. My laptop is setup with 2 here and at work, my desktops all have 3 and my entertainment center has 2 big screens in bedroom - 1 for movie/show and the other for monitoring security camera's - skype/aim and for outlook monitoring.

anyway, what do you do with all these monitors? How do you use them, cause i never used them, i used once to connect tv with the computer + a monitor. and a projector + monitor. Never used monitor-monitor.

One will be for researching or browsing, another for all things media (shows, music, so forth) and the other for coding, working, remotely connecting... thats just one example. It all really depends on what I am doing.

Yeah, I could never go back to one monitor.

More examples would be like when you're learning something new, you have have the tutorial open in one and program in another, Or in my case of cad, I can have the ortho open in one to reference to when I draw the iso or spool. I imagine it's great for artists too. And when you do web programming you can have the code open in one and the browser in another.

the third one is a bit over the top, helpful? yes, but two monitors is the best. I use the 3rd one for my XBox when I decide to play console and its almost alwas just used for media or gaming.
