Home office remodel Phase I: Plan

I have decided to move my Home office and will display the progress for you here first up is planning.


Alright so Here's the deal. This is a picture of my current home office setup. Messy isn't it. So the plan is to move all of this crap over to a different wall with a much larger desk that is to be constructed later. I have the lumber in my garage. I have decided along with Precia's influence that most of this stuff doesn't need to be seen. So we have picked another wall in the basement that we can get behind. What this will allow me to do is have one machine open for the world to see and the others can be hidden behind a wall and attached via KVM.


So here is the wall. Or the back of it anyway. You can clearly see the shelves that were left by the previous owner. I have yet to decide if I will be using these or not. It all has to do with the depth of the equipment and ease of access. I will have a better idea of that after this weekend. Dad and I will be installing power on the back of the wall for the machines that will be hidden and also an outlet for the main computer area. I just need to decide how many different drops I will need. Be sure to check back for Phase II: Electrical next week.

Me too, but that is why we are painting it, but that is another blog post series so I guess you will just have to keep reading.

I love the sound of the rain in the trees. I am just sitting here on the couch surfing the web in the pouring down rain. It is soo cool to look out the window and realize that for the first time in my 25 yrs that these are our trees. Not our landlords, not my parents, Precia and Me, our trees. The sound is very soothing, more so than staring at a computer screen but what else is a geek like me going to do at 8:00 on a Thursday night.

Joe came over tonight so we had brats, we were going to cook them on the grill but then it started pouring down rain, and I didn't really want to roll out the awning as it was getting windy too. So we came back inside and cooked the on the Foreman grill, just as good but not near as fun.

We chatted a bit about life in general watched some movie trailers. It was fun. Now I am just waiting for Precia, she should be home soon, she had to play at Graduation today for some kids that will be singing. I hope she is having a good time. Until then, more…

Hmmm

Well, it's nice to see this is still here.  But then again why wouldn't it be.  After all doesn't google keep everything?

I am not really sure what to put here anymore, that is something that I will have to think about.  I have definitely fallen out of practice with posting here.  I am also not really using Facebook or Google+ at this point, so maybe I can convince myself that this will be the place to put things.  I will have to take a look around some more and see If anything has changed, ie Are there static pages?  This might be a good place to build out a bit of a portfolio, I also like the idea of putting little snippets of useful information here so that I can find them again easier later.  So we'll see what happens.
