Every now and then I get work done in the home office. I’ve written previously about my setup, but after churning out some solution design today, I sat back and really took some time to appreciate the workspace. I’m really pleased with the configuration, it’s probably the best setup I’ve had in years.
The desk is a former QLD police desk from the 1940s, so it wasn’t built for modern computers – not a problem, the cables run down the back which is just a minor annoyance. The keyboard and mouse are gaming varieties so that they perform well – the old Sennheiser (RF) wireless headset has been with me since 2006 and still works very well.
The wooden clock (recently reviewed) acts as external speakers, a Bluetooth receiver and has a built in microphone so it can be used as a hands-free option for conference calls. It also features Qi wireless charging capability and also features a thermostat.
Under the second monitor is a HDD caddy which supports USB3, and features 4 bays which can be used in parallel. I try to keep the desk reasonably neat, and there’s plenty of space so it doesn’t get too cluttered. I have a nice view out the window to a small courtyard which gets early morning sun.
