Default My view of cool web sites

I just had to share... Here is a view of my new work desk - showing two of my favorite web sites!

For reference to size, the middle screen is a 30 inch display!

Now, this could have been a Casual Converstion thread, but its here for two reasons:
1) So I don't get yelled at for advertising whats on the right screen and
2) To make Dawn jealous

You don't believe in opening more than one window up on a screen??? Seems overkill to me. Or maybe you are into surround sound and like the cool movies such as star wars.

Nice! I've only got two 21" monitors at work, and all that multitasking capability makes it really hard to pay attention during web meetings! I'm usually on various conference calls most of the day, but there's often a pen related site open on my right hand monitor!

You suck. :) I have three 22 inch monitors. I need the 30 inch in the middle.

If you work in IT, review a lot of docs, or monitor systems then the more screens the better. You need all the screen space you can get. :)

LOL... Actually in a normal world, there is 2 windows on the right, LOTs in the middle and a couple of overflow on the left. I intentionally closed most stuff down right before I took the picture.

I really could use a 30" screen. Sometimes the print is just to small for this 'old mans eyes'. Some of my e-mails and PM's take a while for me to read. Often without my glasses. Happily for my work I can see things closer better.

Lucky for me I don't understand multi screens as I have enough trou ble with just one.

OCD and ADD have resulted in roughly 2500 windows open in my browser...I can't seem to close any of them!
