Tonight I had an appointment at the Microsoft Answer Bar for some warranty service. The service was excellent as always, and Jacob seemed happy to spend the appointment entertaining himself on the different computers and XBox around the store.

Back in October I shared a picture of my desk, with an explosion of screens(POD: My Work Desktop). It represented an extreme that I wished for, but didn’t have the technology to support. To add insult to it I had the spare monitor I used with my Nieces laptop that day sitting on my desk,… Continue reading POD: A Geek Desk
