A Paladin’s Desk: Minor Update for April 2014…

Apologies for the awful quality of this photo. I lost my Samsung S3 to Hawaii’s ocean while on vacation and I’m currently using a Samsung Inspire which has a…lacking camera. But, it is currently better than nothing so I can’t complain.

I think it’s been a long time since I’ve talked about my desktop setup and today I felt like talking about it. As a refresher, I have two gaming PCs which is surprising because I thought the older one would have kicked the bucket by now. But it hasn’t so it’s going to be re-purposed into an Arch Linux CLI Server.

I’ve been working on completely revamping my computer setup over the past couple of days. It took so long because I couldn’t find a table as I’ll talk about down below. The main reason I changed this because my previous setup had space restrictions. I couldn’t work on special projects such as opening a phone and looking at its hardware or installing Linux on an old Laptop. So, after rearranging the room, I was able to put in a new four-foot folding table. The above photo is mostly what it will look like from now on. I didn’t want to use a plastic resin table nor a regular computer desk sold at stores as they are awful for my needs. Usually they waste of ton of space to look fancy or are too expensive. I had actually wanted to get another cheap table like the one in the picture but apparently no one sells these anymore. I went to every major retailer for this kind of thing and they don’t sell them. I am flabbergasted as to why. I’m not a fan of these new plastic-resin tables because they don’t hold up as well but it seems I’ve got no choice in the matter.

So what’s changed: The towers are finally off the ground and sitting on the desk. So far, I like them up there. I can finally see inside my fancy case, I just wish there was more interesting things you could see in it. That being said, I’m planning on possibly adding a new and bigger CPU fan in the near future so that might spice things up. Or get a Nvidia GPU 700 series with a LED Visualizer. Haha, ok maybe not, but it’s fun to think about. Underneath the table is the UPS, subwoofer and the internet modem, with the Wireless router on top. I’m not sure what else I’ll put down there right now. While my main desk has a little less space, the added space from the second table will be really nice for other projects as previously mentioned. Overall, I’m liking the new position of it all.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed that. I’m going to be writing about weird stuff for the short term until I can break my writers block so you’ll just have to enjoy it. šŸ˜‰ As far as everything else going on right now, job search is starting up again after a week+ off for my vacation to Hawaii with my family. I’ve gotten a few jobs for my business which has helped. Ā Jahna has been suffering from a foot problem (we think she got stung by a bee at the pet camp) but seems to be recovering now. My game plan is SMITE, finish up Metal Gear Rising, Hate Plus and start tackling Shadow Warrior again. Add on everything else going on including more exercise and I’ve got a full plate ahead for the next several months. Busy times!

Thanks for reading and until next time…
