• Antenna rotor for my RF PRO 1B magnetic loop antenna.
  • LX-5 / Linnaeum, subwoofer under desk in corner.
  • LX-5 / Linnaeum, subwoofer under desk in corner.
  • One of my monitors died, so the security monitor is temporarily here; I'll be moving this over the stereo on the left when I replace the monitor.
  • 26 VFO's for my SDR software
  • Keyboard garages conveniently under this monitor. I pull it out to type.
  • This is my current audio system -- 100 w/rms/ch. It's a moderately high-end Yamaha. Sounds awesome.
  • Fairies...
  • Wacom tablet stylus
  • Wacom tablet. I only get it out if I need it.
  • My SDR software
  • Tuning knob for SDR software
  • MIDI control surface which serves as "the knobs" for my SDR software -- I like me some knobs.
  • Captain Kirk and R2-D2. Because it's funny.
  • I built the desk, Deb routed the trim and did the finish work. The room is 12x12, and the desk is 8x12x8. It's supported at 45º to the wall, so there are no supports to kick or run into.
  • This is finished OSB, so I can mount anything I like on it securely. I *despise* drywall.
  • Overhead bookshelves -- this room used to be our library. We've become pretty much all-e-book, and our physical library has moved to the basement.
  • Lots of room off to the left... a good four feet after the stereo... haven't decided what to do with it yet, exactly. Have a lamp there now.
  • Custom shelf for the monitors
  • All the lower monitors, USB, keyboard, etc feed through the wall behind this monitor
  • All the upper monitors and audio feed through the wall behind this monitor
  • USB hub
  • Know what fits perfectly on this warm surface?

    A pizza. :)
  • Cookies.

    Specifically, Reeses-infused chocolate chip cookies.

New digs, new desk

Newer Older

I've moved from my old digs, in the process gaining a lot of open, comfy space. The computers are now behind the wall there, so fan and drive noise is entirely gone (was actually very loud with my previous setup... those Dell machines may be fast, but they're loud); I can walk behind the wall and have direct access to the Macpro or either of the linux servers quite easily.

The desk goes 2 ft left at the inside corner there where the Yamaha stereo fits, and extends 6 feet to the right, 8 feet in total. From the corner, I have six more feet before it turns into Deb's desk — we each got 1/2 the space, which works really well.

The Macpro normally drives six monitors, but (I guess) I broke one when moving, it wouldn't power up -- so what you see here is five Macpro displays and one of the security monitors. That'll change after a while.

To the right of my desk is a 3 foot by 4 foot tall shelf, on top of which I have my camera bag; the shelf holds various things I like to have handy. Deb's arrangement is similar, but she has a six-foot shelf, and has also slid a filing cabinet under the desk. The only things under my desk are a guitar amp, which rolls out on wheels, and the 12" subwoofer for my Macpro/Yamaha audio system.

The west wall has the door to the room, and the freshwater through-wall fish tank. It's very pleasant having the fishies in the office! I've also hung up a couple of guitars so that I can jam out whenever I'm so motivated. I use Logic Pro and Flying Haggis on the Macpro, and there's a Fender Twin under the desk, too.

I expect this will change a bit over the next months, I'll re-post as it evolves.
