You actually use that Mac for more than decoration?

Yeah, I built a wifi modem with the CHIP computer and use the SE/30 as a terminal. Since I work from the command line for a lot of my day, I can use any machine if it has a decent terminal emulator. ZTerm works very well.

Oh it's Synthwave '84.

At first I installed it for fun, but it really grew on me.🤘

I've actually made detailed reviews about both of those keyboards!

Here's mine. I recently added the laptop stand and quickly realized I needed a monitor stand too. I decided to build one out of Legos. I'm pretty happy with it, plus now I always have things to play with during meetings.

Yes, just the notebook. At some point I need to buy a new external monitor, though. 🤔

Edit: And I apparently have got a new angle. Stupid camera phone.

Think I should show my old workplace and the "standing desk" I used to have.

My old "standing desk"

Left was Linux, right was Windows, and I used Synergy so I just had one keyboard, and an IOGear KVM switch for when I needed to Admin the Windows, but my Logitech Unifying keyboard didn't work well with the KVM, so I modified a Staples "Easy" button with an Arduino-like Teensy that acted as a Human Interface Device and wrote code to send two scroll locks when needed.

And that is an empty toilet paper box holding up the keyboard. Just the right height, but I like my new one better.

Is that a Dygma Raise keyboard? I want one of those so bad. What is your experience with it?

It is yip. It took me a while to get used to the way it's split above but now I can't go back. That setup has helped with some back and shoulder issues I had for a while too, I don't lean or move off the keyboard as much anymore. I used to always lean left into the keyboard 😄

The layers really help too for a lot of things. For certain symbols, no more awkward hand positions. e.g. I hold the thumb key next to right alt and press "d" now for "&", leave go of the thumb key and its back to normal. I have a few persistent layers setup also, like changing "wasd" to be arrow keys and adding a numpad to the right split.

Overall it's amazing. Haven't hit any issues yet.
