x-beams laptop stand

I feel all studly with my new dual display setup, and my homemade laptop stand (thanks, extruded aluminum!). But hey, this is where I make my living now.

I'm very jealous of your big monitor. (Don't take that in any other way than face value.)

Dude. Cool...but what's with all the wires.

Have you (if you're running Tiger) tried turning the monitor sideways? I love the 2405FPW in this configuration:

whoa, widescreen! nice stuff.

Freelance robotics sounds like it is the first step on the road to mad science disease. Take care! (:

Are they using white LEDs yet?

I guess laptops cause of the lower power/longer batt life,
better red range, (colorsync profile?)
longer backlight life.

So far I've just been continuing to work for Evolution Robotics, still working on the same vision-based retail loss-prevention project[1]. The significant observable changes are (i) I'm working a lot less (aaah, summer!) and (ii) I mostly work from home. The changes in my mental state are less obvious to others, but they feel pretty significant to me.

Rob: My powerbook (an old 800 MHz TiBook) doesn't seem to support portrait mode.

Typical geek. 3 grand in computers sitting next to a $30 ikea bookshelf.
