Friends,

On June 16, MVP Thomas Black did a guest blog titled "Logos Helps Me Hit the Ground Running." Thomas included a great pic of his desktop. Not his PC workspace layout, but his real, analog desk. I felt so affirmed!  Here was a working desk in all it's busy glory.

So I'm thinking: maybe we could post pictures of our desks, just as they are. Perhaps they are a window into our workdays.

This is the "home desk." There's one at the church office that looks much the same. I am reminded of a proverb: "If a cluttered desk is the sign of a cluttered mind, an empty desk is the sign of..."

Excellent Pic Steve!  Thanks for the counter-encouragement.

 

As for the rest of you - I'd love to see your work environments if you're up to it.  (Make sure Logos is on the computer monitor!)

 

Neat freaks need not apply - I don't think I can handle that kind of reinforcement.  Wink

Hi Steve, enjoyed the glimpse.  If I didn't know better I would say that is Ray Summers Greek grammar sitting on top of a NA26(no make that a UBS) right below the hat collection and under the spiral notebook.  Am I warm?  (I'm a graduate of Southwestern also BTW.)

Yep! Got it in one. But I think Summers was from my undergrad at East Texas Baptist, where i did baby Greek. We used Dana & Mantey's grammar at SWBTS.

Your eyesight is AMAZING!

Richard, My school owns the largest collection of Charles Spurgeon's personal study library available.  Naturally CS bobbleheads start popping up for sale in the campus bookstore.  If I'm not mistaken they're only available through the 6 SBC seminary campus stores.  

They're's nothing quite like an affirming nod from the Prince of Preachers after searching through every resource Logos has made available from him

Actually I am not ... While it's more comfortable to use the mouse with my left hand, among other things, I write with my right. While eating the knife is always in my left hand, but everything else is with the right. That is unsettling to folks who're not used to quirky dudes. In the picture the main screen is on the right.

I admire the three-monitor approach.  With a notebook I think I'm limited to two.

Ok, I thought you might have had your main screen as one of the sides and not the center.  Have you ever had eye fatigue from switching between three different screen models?  I've wondered if a solid graphics card could remedy this if it was an issue.

Steve, I found a nifty thing (USB 2.0 Sabrent display adapter, Viewmax) over at TigerDirect that works with the DisplayLink software. This tiny thing plugs into the USB port. This gives me the regular VGA port and the DVI for 2 of the monitors. With this adapter I can add the third. The literature says I could add more monitors, but that's enough for me. The monitor on the left is actually a television monitor that I could switch back to TV if I want. When I dropped my VCRs about 3 months ago this monitor was left over, so I dragged it in here. Perhaps on your laptop you could add a 3rd monitor if you need it. All 3 of my monitors are from a refurbished bin somewhere. I've never paid full price for one, so all three together may have cost me almost $150.00 over two years or so. I really don't care if all three are different sizes and manufacturers ... they do the job and I'm grateful.

At my advanced age I wear trifocals. By tilting my head appropriately I avoid eye fatigue. I've discovered that with multiple monitors that my eyes are moving rather than fixed on one point, a factor that diminishes eye fatigue. Occasionally I'll move the display so that the main screen is the center one depending on the task at hand. My device manager shows that I have a ATI Radeon HD 4350 and Windows Live Display driver using Windows 7 (64-bit), 8GB of memory, with an AMD Phenom II X4 910 Processor 2.60GHz. And all that's networked with another desktop running XP that runs my email and website..but that's another story. Stick out tongue

It's so CLEAN!  Pristine, like the sixth day of creation.  I like the kid art, too.

Uh, what's a Sabbatical?  Smile
