new setup - Pochiyama

When Reki (my 5 year old G4 Power Mac) started to go (major issues with the main hard drive) Sarah had pity on me and said it was time to upgrade. If you look at what my old setup looked like, I was using two monitors (the 23" ACD and my 21" Cintiq). Rather than get an adapter for the ACD, i decided to simplify and go with a one monitor setup, just the cintiq. Since i do so much analog work (drawings) i actually need the space for reference sketches rather than another monitor full of distractions :P Note that none of this has bothered Momo in the slightest, as he sleeps curled up in his kitty bed.


One other addition you will see is the footrest, which has REALLY helped me get comfortable for longer periods of time. The fan is actually there to cool off the Cintiq. Sometimes, the surface can get kinda hot (esp. the lower right corner) and its nice to be able to turn a fan on it for a few min to cool it down.
