Uh, what's a Sabbatical?  Smile

That's when they pay you to clean your desk! ;-)

 I've got a whole stash (5 or so) old CRT monitors in my attic if anyone wants to drive to central Illinois and get them.

I love how in all 4 desktop pictures so far there has been the presence of at least one sticky note... if not more.  Sticky Notes just work with technology Geeked

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

Took the picture with my Blackberry, so it is a little fuzzy. I am a lefty, note the position of the all-important coffee cup.

How do you like this one ?

It's not really my desk (or me).  I got this in a Google search.

I have been blessed with an awesome desk. The base I'm a reserve AF Chaplain at updated their furniture and I was able to get my wing chaplains old desk, which is new to me!

<EDIT> I love perks, especially free ones. But it's always good to remember that any perk which burns with a match can't compare to what Ephesians 1 offers!

Your desk arrangement looks...military!  Neat, trim; shipshape (couldn't think of an AF description for orderly).

Jack, is there an inclined plane on your desk, or is it an illusion of camera angle? It looks like the left monitor slopes a little and the space under the keyboard is trapezoidal. I am also a lefty, but I use the mouse with my right hand to reduce carpal-tunnel fatigue on the dominant side. I also use a "natural" split keyboard (see original post here).

That is a reflection from the two displays. Wow! Didn't know my desktop was so shinny. 

Steve Johnson:

I have to do that when I work on someone else's computer, and it is rather cumbersome for me. I don't understand why others do not use the most natural hand—that would be the left one.

Probably camera angle, but it is turned back toward the front of then desk slightly.

Disgustingly neat. You must not be Baptist! Big Smile

James, I'm particularly fond of the stroller hidden by the desk in the first picture.  

Guard that child in Christ.  Well done.

 

Oh, and you're desk is appropriately cluttered, but your floor hasn't nearly enough piles of books laying around.

The kids love to come in and visit dad as he is working. Playing dolls and driving cars around the room.

The kids need plenty of driving room so the books must stay on the shelves or the desk. This is dad's office but also the kids’ playroom even though they have a separate playroom.

The left hand is the sinister one.

Are you accusing Halo Hound of being sinister? Me, I can understand, but why attack dear, sweet Rosie? Big Smile
