Great idea sitting on the ball, I have a standing desk and change frequently from sitting on the chair to sitting on a gymnastic ball to standing (on a balance board).

Nice screen. Big enough for a "single-screen setup".
The lighting is pretty cool as well.

What a great setup! Does the vertical monitor arrangement cause any neck or back discomfort?

Thank you and no I have not found it to so far. It took some time though to get it all the right height and angling.

why wont you put one vertical?

Collapse
jasonjpeters profile image
JasonJPeters

I thought about it and my setup at the office I work at has one of my monitors vertical. However I found that I did not use that one as much as the main screen. Aside from the fact the stand does not allow me to, I am finding I am leveraging my screen real estate in this configuration the most.

Good spotting! I don't use a mouse much. Most of my work is UI development, so I use one to test mouse interactions. Otherwise I mostly use keyboard commands thanks to vscode+vim, vimium, spectacle, alfred, dash docs, and a shortcut to the OSX menu search.

I do play some video games though, so for that I take it off the stand ;)

This is really neat !
I tried vscode+vim but I felt like I couldn't "express myself" easily with it. I guess I should train more !

It took me a while, but now I miss it - I even tried to use vim commands inside this text input!

I started out with VIM Adventures and just using HJKL to move around, but I would put a sticky note on my monitor each week with new useful commands to learn. I'm still learning!

Yeah it's definitely not healthy so I take breaks more often and when I need to work for extended periods of time I take the laptop to the kitchen where I do have a table. But first few days showed me that working from the kitchen makes me eat more so I decided to move to the couch

Are you streaming development session by any means ? (as I can see the camera and the mic).
Or are you streaming gaming ? (which is popular).

Love the setting by the way.
I would love to stream some development session with people or security advocacy for developers.

The link is broken.

I have the same concept the Fn + 1 - 4 toggle various layers. However I have been working on remapping the caps lock as the Mode_switch modifier so that I can use that key as a Caps + key modifier. Example Caps + Ctrl/Menu/Alt are my Left/Down/Right respectively. The issue I am having is making that mapping permanent. Something keeps resetting it — Ubuntu 19.10
