Maintenance Mode

I’m in the middle of some office upgrades and wasn’t able to get this week’s Rule 5 and Fun Fact posts staged.

This involves installing a new motorized standing desk that supports a few monitors, including a 49″ monitor I bought a few months ago

In order to support the types and number of monitors, I also had to buy a new docking station that would host a more powerful graphics adapter. The graphics card is based on an nVidia GE Force GPU that supports 4 displays, each with a max resolution of 3840 x 2160 resolution at 60 MHz.

I’m also doing some additional wiring to add a couple more outlets. Once I had the old desk removed, it dawned on me this might be the best time to do some additional work to support some other equipment I plan on buying.

Unsurprisingly, there are still some items on order which have not arrived that is also complicating these enhancements. It would seem the Joe Biden economy isn’t well suited to support some of these DIY upgrades.

Working from home has its advantages, but I can hardly take over other areas of the house with my normal setup. So I’ve been relegated to one side of the couch, squinting at a 15″ LCD screen during the day, and working in my office at night trying to complete the upgrades in between weekends.

So there won’t be any Rule 5 posts or Fun Facts this week. I will have new posts starting next week. Oh, and some much needed graphics updates to the website will follow shortly after that.

Thanks as always for your patience and understanding. I’ll post pictures when all is said and done.

  1. Unless you’re doing high-frame-rate video, a standard HD TV works fine as a computer monitor. I have 25′ HDMI cable so I can sit on the couch with my laptop and use the 55″ TV as my 2nd monitor.
