In my recent post about my current setup I alluded to possibly posting pictures of the evolution of my office(s) over the years. Well here it is.
This is the first picture I can find of a office space. It was taken May 29th 2002. I was working at the help desk for Wells Fargo Financial in Des Moines, IA. They decorated my table/cubical for my birthday.
I moved up the ladder pretty quick and soon had my own little secluded cube at Wells Fargo and it looked like this:
My Job Wells Fargo was now the Lead Unix Security Admin which sounds like a cool job but really sucked cause I would have to audit all the boxes for exploits and stuff then sitdown with the Unix Admin team and go over all the stuff they needed to fix. You can see how well liked I was here:
Not to long after that I moved to Omaha (after getting fired for working on nextpimp.com all day) and worked for Commercial Federal Bank by day but here was my office at home. I had 2 20″ sony 80lbs trinitron monitors which had the most beautiful picture! But they were HUGE!
I was fired in 2004ish from Commercial federal for working on my own websites all day (again) and started doing everything from home. This is when things started to go well for me. I had weight loss surgery and as you can see my monitors lost some weight too. I switched to dell 20″ LCD’s
In 2005 We moved from Omaha to Lincoln Nebraska and I setup this in a extra room (which is now susans office). It was a 36″ (i think) widescreen tv/monitor and then 3 20″ Dell LCD’s powered by a Dell XPS. This was totally a new temporary setup for me until my new office was being built in the unfinished part of the basement.
This was my first day in my newly built office. It still was not finished yet. I had a 60″ tv put into the wall but as you can see it was not yet framed in. On my desk I had 3 20″ dell monitors and also could use the 60″ LCD as a 4th for when I wanted to show things to other people. If you want to see this in its framed state before the drywall check this out
Here is a little better view from my point of view in the cockpit. In this instance I was running windows on the box to the left and mac on the 2 on the right. This setup did not last long. It was much easier to leave the windows box in my server room and just remote desktop into it then to have all the bs on my desk
I also played around doing some recording of some video “shows” with barry scwartz and other guests that never made it to the web =( It was fun though.
Its not always just about having “fun” playing on the internet though… When the Xbox 360 came out I was found A TON on xbox live! You can also see now the 60″ that is framed in with nice wood thing I had made for it.
back to computer setup pics! – So a bit later I moved to the Apple 30″ display from the 3×20″ and wow what a difference. The apple display is well worth the money.
and that leads us to the current setup of 2 30″ apple displays and a dual intel quad core 3ghz macpro desktop.
So thats it!!! Now tomorrow I am moving into my new office out of the house. I am REALLY excited because its a cool place… I will get some pictures soon. In the new office I am going to take one of the 30″ monitors and my old quad G5 apple.
