High-Tech Office

current location: KY16 8SX

Candle-lit office

This is what my office looked like last night. Power went off about 3:30 and was restored around 1 A.M. Unfortunately the PC hasn’t yet come back to life…

Update: It lives! But a new surge protector will be in order, I think.

home or work? I hope it was the latter, so that you could escape your colleagues' brain-sapping chatter early.

I was working from home because there was enough warning of the bad weather for me to ask permission; and I was able to put in a full day even after the power cut with the help of the laptop battery.

I got caught out this week on Tuesday though - it took five hours to get home via Perth; three hours of that on the bus between Dundee and St. Andrews, which is usually a 25-minute journey.

Aarrgghh - sympathy. Why via Perth?

Because the Tay Bridges were closed (road and rail).

You got the 20" and pivot right, but as it happens they're LG. (Flatron L2000CN, if you're interested.) Managed to get them just before it became practically impossible to find 3:4 ratio screeens any more. Hope they last well! I'm not keen on wide screen for the desktop.

agree 4:3

feels right somehow for desktop though I'm getting to love the 1330x768 on my Samsung 900A latop though I keep the TX2-1340 (1280x800) for Windows 8 in February when it enters beta
