we frequently had parcels thrown over the fence into our garden and into the water butt.

Welp, the older of my two monitors was on it's last leg, depending on the temperature of the room, sometimes taking up to 20 minutes to kick in.  It was only a matter of time so I went ahead and order a new one.  I ordered it on Tuesday and it arrived today.  This time I was waiting outside my door for the delivery guy.  I wasn't taking any risks.

Anywho, this is what I got.

Looks like I'll probably be getting one at work too.  End-of-year (fiscal year) spending is coming up due (i.e., "spend the rest of your budget or you'll get docked on next years budged") is coming up and we've already got new laptops (Dells) and ram upgrade to 16GB for them.  Add a sweet 27" monitor...I might almost forget I'm working.

I can afford kit like that nowadays, I just don't have enough space to host it.

New plan: find a bigger property!

You're a lucky boy, dweez.

Got the same monitor for work but because my work computer has a proprietary output on the vid card (to allow for a special Y-split cable for dual monitors) I can't get the full 2560 x 1440 resolution but the 1920x1080 I do get is still good.  I'll likely be getting a replacement vid card in the future for it.  Below is my monitor setup at work.



That's a 19" (running my ubuntu) then the 27" and a 24" (running my Win2012R2).  If you look close along the left side, you can see the edge of my 24" iMac.  It only gets turned on every other month or so for patching (I have it when I need to test something on OS X).

Also, if you look close at the pen cup (please disregard the pager next to it...the boss prefers it over cell phones because of better signal access), you'll see my latest toy.  In my ongoing (but progressing) battle against smoking, I bought a Vamo V5 battery mod to go with my other vaping paraphernalia.  The big button is the power/vaping trigger and the 2 smaller buttons allow me to switch through some LED options and adjust the voltage and wattage.  The tank is a KangerTech Protank 3 with a Pyrex tank so I don't have to worry about whether the juice I use will damage the tank (some juices will crack a Polycarbonite tank quickly).



I figured I'd post a reflection shot too to add my ugly mug to the shot.

Still less harmful than "analogs" (the cool way we "vapers" refer to tobacco cigarettes >.<).

So it's an E-Cig and not a light sabre?

Your kit always shows me up, dude. My son's banned from this thread as the "I'm old school" line ain't washing with him any more.

I can't find the other mircosoft surface thread...

I was doing some research and it seems like the new surface laptop will not be good for gaming. Although it is very pretty. I'm kind of disappointed. I'm thinking perhaps I'll just stick with apple if I'm paying over 1000 anyways?
