Home Office (Early 2006)

Here is the new setup: flickr.com/photos/garrettmurray/1781918892/

Now that I'm working from home, this is where I do it every day. It's also where we podcast (which explains the acoustic foam on the walls).

    What combo ikea desk is that? I love it.. I want to buy the same setup and file cabinet.. I'm so picky but I found the perfect desk.

    Also how much was that chair?

    Not my workspace, but my desk at home. Updated version here.

    @Callander: It's actually just a custom configuration I made from various available pieces. It's a long table top and a short one, connected by an adjustable support beam, with T legs on both sides.

    If you have an IKEA near you, you'll see what I mean when you go into the desk section--you can just build your own desk from various components.

    @Garrett: yeah, I adored the keyboards... just hated how fast they broke. My current one is a wireless Logitech (S530 Mac), and frankly, it's dreamy.

    And I'll take a snap of my space when I finally get around to clearing off all the bills and empty iced tea bottles. (Speaking of... have you tried irish breakfast tea? as opposed to the english brekky tea.)

    I see no microphone! What on earth?

    I still say it's creepy that a picture of your desk has garnered over 1600 views. You should move.

    @elliotcable: The microphones are on stands behind the camera. I'll take another shot soon with the office in podcast mode.

    @smadden: Yeah, I agree.

  8. elliottcable 86 months ago | reply

    Sounds like a plan. Maybe a shot of the big red button you use to switch it from one mode to the other would be cool too!

    It's like ok, time for the podcast. *BLEEP* *whiiiirrrrr as things move around* *creak* *CRACK* Ok, there we go. Ready to record, sir!

    @ladiesmam417: The stand is from Griffin Technology--it's the Elevator stand (the second gen iCurve).
