    I promise to take pictures daily. I will even get DH to take a picture with me actually in it. I cant guarantee it will be pretty. I turn into a mess monster when I paint...lol
    We have to go to a Friends birthday BBQ tomorrow, I don't wanna go because it will take away from my painting time. But I am taking some blocks I am hand piecing so I will be happy with that.

    Looks like there's a lap top to the right, too? Your set up would make my husband very, very jealous! I can't imagine being able to keep track of everything that's going on. Wow.

    lol, yall are funny. I am, or was a Network Engineer by career (until I was laid off 5 months ago) Still looking for the new Nerd position. I do a few side jobs and test software on different OS platforms, hence the multiple machines. they are all running different OS.s. Hey we are quiltings multi-tasking is in our blood!!

    My birthday is in July and I did ask DH for another monitor to replace the one with the silver trim.. A BIGGER one, 24 inches..

    Nerd power!!!

    Lisa, tell your hubby it's not so bad, really. You should have seen the look on my DH's face when, 2 days after getting his big screen Hi-Def TV - I hooked a computer up to it :twisted: He felt better after I showed him we could watch Netflix movies that way :lol:

    The KVM's I have seen use keystrokes to change computers.

    At work we have two screens but one computer - well, we're on a network so have multiple servers- but the two screens work like one large one so you can have multiple programs running and files open. Kind of fun how the cursor jumps from one screen to the next.

    I find when I set my laptop up and work on it with my computer I will forget which keyboard to use when I want to type something in, then have that frustration flash when there's no response where I'm looking :twisted:
