Default GWiz office/dorm for the next 5 months...

Wife found these 2 commercial grade desks that we picked up today, both for $100. GWiz has owned 10 monitors, but never connected more than 8 of them...now she has. Plenty of room for a printer and plenty of room to spread out for studying.

We're pretty pleased with this arrangement.

We picked up the desks this morning. Only paid $100 for both. Everything else...and MORE not shown in the picture were done today. She's got her fridge and laser printer now in place. The command center is almost complete.

What exactly do you do with all those monitors? I know you use multiple monitors as well, and have for a long time, but what exactly is the function of all those monitors? And it must suck as as you get older and need reading glasses as some of those monitors look to be too far away for reading glasses to focus properly on.

As I am old, and need reading glasses, and have 18 monitors....the purpose of this setup is to spread things out. I run a virtual machine on my computer that takes up the 6 monitors front and center. That VM has SQL Server, Postman, Delphi programming language, Excel, Windows folders, and text editors running at all times. Those alone get spread between those six monitors.

Additionally, I have a remote control session to my notebook on 1 monitor, and I have email (3 clients spread across 2 monitors), I have family chat on Kakao on others....I can go on and on, but at the end of the day, the point of doing this is you never have to hunt for the active window. With this setup, you just turn your head. You place everything where you know it is and it's there. Ping from a child? Just look up. Email from a client...just look left.

I NEVER have to hunt. It's ALWAYS there. Multiply those actions times 100 or more and you'll understand why I do what I do. I use all 18 monitors all day, every day. The time savings alone pay for the setup. GWiz subscribes to this lifestyle.

Can't believe those assholes at Apple didn't put a printer port on the iPad.

Assholes.

She'll finish her degree this semester in Mechanical Engineering from Georgia Tech with a minimum of a 3.75 GPA. With 4 classes left, she might sneak out a 3.8. Despite the engineering degree, she's going down the rabbit hole of software engineering...just like dad....just like "dad...I don't want to do what you do..."

When you go down this multi-monitor worm hole, you will understand how important it is. For programmers, it's huge. The time savings I alone get by having 18 monitors might account for 1-2 hours a day in an 18 hour day. Again, the value of that time vs. the cost of the technology is a no brainer.

I've been using dual monitors for years. Has always helped with what I do. Dunno if multiple monitors would work for me. Then again, I don't run applications full screen.

You are completely right with the simple turn of the head for what you want.
