My brother is even more inadequate

Well, here I am full of warm and fuzzy feelings with my beautiful multi-monitor rig, and along comes my brother (the one who is not even an engineer!) and emails me a photo of his rig.

Nine monitors total. And he claims they are FDA approved to boot, in case you wanted to eat one. Also, you can see that he uses the exact same phone I use at my office, which doesn’t mean anything but I wanted to point it out. He’s a couple of screens shy of recreating his own Circle-Vision 360°, which is cool but is no Space Mountain (not even a Pirates of the Caribbean).

It is still unclear how many screens are driven by the same computer.

Making up for my other inadequacies

multi-monitor setupThe only way to simultaneously amass tons of geek cred AND work on your tan is to surround yourself by four large LCD monitors. This is my new setup, put together after lots of scavenging around the office. Does it make me more efficient? Maybe. Does it make me cooler? In some circles. Does it make you jealous? Most certainly. Can I launch nuclear attacks from it? That’s classified.

Ah, the smell of a new Mac OS X in the morning… There was a line at the Apple Store yet no free t-shirts as before. I hear almost everything is faster – and things will just get faster as applications start taking advantage of OpenCL and Grand Central.
