4th screen I finally got my 4th screen setup last week. Needed something for those pesky chrome debugger windows :)

Lol, no it's more that I can focus on two screens at a time! Left doc/middle code/right running code/far right debugger

Did I just suggest I have a "far-right debugger"??? - I want to take this opportunity to distance myself from anything far-right lol.

If only we could debug the far-right tendencies in our societies. I'd love that.

May I ask what kind of graphics card and ports you have to address 4 individual monitors?

Collapse

It's the Mac's internal GFX for the first 3. The "most right" one is driven by a StarTech.com USB GFX card (which can handle 2 4k displays).

Ah, so there's room for a fifth one, I see ;-)

Yep - the original plan was for screen 4 to be above my right screen. However I bought the wrong kind of arm and it was too low by about 5cm, so yeah, I know where it would live too if I could buy the right kit next time!

I write code like a psychopath: on a laptop, with no extra monitors.

Single laptop screen crew!

But because of my visual impairment, I could never really work with a multi screen setup comfortably.

Keep it short and simple at home 🎉

As a student currently developing my first mayor web-app as part of my bachelor thesis, i am given the privilege to work at home, using my own setup.

Thank you!

This setup was a long way with many iterations until this point, but now I am really happy with what it has turned out as.

The wall-mounting has three advantages in my case:

  • I can keep my head straight while looking directly at the monitor
  • Cleaning the desk has become easier
  • My pc serves as my tv as well. In front of my desk I got my couch. With the wall mount I can pull the monitor back towards the couch to some extend :)

Nice keyboards, where did you get them from?

the front one is a vortex Pok3r with custom DSA keycaps. The back one is a whitefox again with mostly blank DSA keycaps. I am one of those people with keyboard obsessions.

It's from my area so I don't know if you can get one (supporting the local economy, hehe), but here's the link, I'm sure there are a lot similar:

emag.ro/scaun-ergoplus-stacy-h-neg...

Main features I was looking for was: it needed to have a head rest, adjustable lombar support, adjustable armrests.

Main computer: Mac Mini. Need the power and don't currently need the flexibility of a laptop.
Monitor: Dell UltraSharp U3415W 34-Inch Curved
Keyboard: Durgod Taurus K320 TKL Cherry Silent Red
Mouse: Logitech MX Master 2S
Headphones: Bose QC II

I'd highly recommend each and any of the above.

Bonus pic: the other half of my office is my home gym! Pic taken after deadlifts.

Dungeons and Dragons Desktop

In the spring I could work from my loft game room, at my Dungeons and Dragons gaming table I built custom. Yes, the temptation to play with the miniatures was high. In summer now it's too hot up there to work, so I'm down in an actual dungeon in my basement. Too much shame to post my messy office.

How do you guys plug so many monitors on one computer? Does it take a special board, a hub? Is that a MIDI controller behind your keyboard?
