Being a total uber-geek means that I already have a great excuse in buying outrageous pieces of computer kit!
At the business end of my "blogging pit" I have what is commonly referred to as the "tanning salon" - four 24" Dell monitors (one not shown) which means I can pretend I'm Tom Cruise in Minority Report and move windows around all four screens.
Most blogs displayed on the screen award?
Man Widdecombe, Dick Puddlecote, Anna Raccoon, Guido, LegIron and John Ward.
The power to the office is on a separate circuit from the rest of the house and is backed up by an APC UPS which gives enough power for 1 hours worth of World of Warcraft or 2 hours worth of development during a power cut.
There's an air-cooled cabinet containing 4 servers, a Draytek commercial duty firewall, CAT 6 cabling, various wireless peripherals, laser printer/scanner/fax, business ADSL and 10Tb worth of RAID storage - enough for the most depraved amateur porn aficionado.
Music to the office is streamed on the house network via the Popcorn Hour NMT.
I have no life... :)
Happy New Year to you all!
Lights On! Human Achievement Hour
