    It connects to our two cell phones over Bluetooth and makes them accessible throughout the rest of the handsets in the house due to very poor T-Mobile signal in the house.
  • A box of "Scribble" note paper used primarily to hold our two cell phones near the window and next to the Uniden ELBT 595 system (to left) while they're plugged into the MacPro over USB to charge.

    They connect to the ELBT 595 over Bluetooth which is a workaround for poor T-Mobile coverage

    The house is wired for GigE in every room, but also has 802.11g
  • Behind here is an Apple Airport 802.11g, one of three on my network configured for WDS
  • My neighbor has one of my Apple Airport Express 802.11g stations configured as a WDS remote, thus extending the signal rather well around our homes.

    (he's also got his own service)
  • Plastic covers for the carpet from Costco. Our chairs (not pictured) have wheels, which don't work well on carpet.
  • Reflected light :)

My Home Office III

Newer Older

This is my home office. I work from here daily, except when I'm traveling.

We moved here in May (2007) and it's taken me a while to get things put together and cleaned up.

Quite a step up from my previous office which was considerably smaller and more cramped.

Not pictured here is the Optra S PS laser printer, Canon IP4300 photo printer, a couple of Gigabit Ethernet switches and an Apple Airport 802.11g, one of several I've deployed in this house and my neighbor's in a WDS roaming configuration.

    Nice, Very Nice. Can I ask where you got your desk/desk pieces and furniture pieces from in the office area?

  5. TranceMist 69 months ago | reply

    @Deptacon - The teak furniture is from Sun Cabinet made in Thailand. They were purchased from multiple "Scandinavian Deisgn" type stores. Check out the notes in the pictures for more details.
