I finally cleaned my desk. And my office.
Several things happened that led to me finally cleaning up my desk. The company gave me a new printer/scanner/fax to replace the old broken printer that used to sit on my desk. I moved the new printer to a box off to the side. You can see it next to the Michael Z Williamson signed special edition on the left side of the picture.
Since I had all the new space on the desk, I thought I would haul out the second flat screen monitor my wife got for really cheap. Two monitors, one computer! But that didn’t work. I don’t have the right cables. But the new flat screen is a lot bigger than the old, so I swapped them out. Now I have the big monitor on the main computer.
So then I thought, why not pull out the spare laptop, the one I use for Skype? So I pulled it out and hooked it up to the old monitor. This meant a trip to the store to get a new keyboard. I dumped water into my old keyboard and broke it, so I’ve been using the spare keyboard. I got a wireless keyboard and mouse, swapped the wired keyboard to the Skype machine, along with the wireless mouse I already had, and presto, I’m all set to give myself computer monitor sunburn.
I must admit that it’s a little strange to be working on the computer without having to elbow piles of junk out of the way.
