The Matticus Command Center

The Matticus Command Center


After Kestrel posted his deskspace when I asked him to, I felt it was only fair for me to do the same.

My left monitor is a 24” Samsung T240 and my right’s a 22” BenQ FP222W H. My macbook takes up the right side. Conversations on Twitter have revealed to me that there are players out there sporting dual 30” screen setups.

That is some real real estate.

A closer look at the picture shows that I have two keyboards: A Mac keyboard on the table (which wires to my Macbook) and one in the tray right below that’s plugged into my PC.

My Steelpad is holding my black Razer and my Mac “Egg” mouse. I configured my right monitor to also plug into my Macbook so that I could mirror the display there.

Anyways, with a setup like this, it allows me to raid on my left screen and look up valuable information on the right (such as hockey scores).

I may have to take a page from the Kestrellian one and pick me up a new backlit keyboard. The characters on mine have all but rubbed off. Can’t see when it’s late at night and sometimes I end up hitting the wrong key.

There’s an ongoing thread on Plusheal where I asked players to share their setup (attachments are enabled). I would love to take a look at yours!

  1. Putting the Mac thing aside… 😉 jk jk jk

    Dual wide screen? That IS real estate!

  2. What is that picture on the wall?

  3. Hope your cold gets better soon – spied the Vicks chest rub on the far left.

    We Mums spot these things from a mile off 🙂

    Is it a 50dkp bonus (or a loot Council vote) for a nice girlie to rub it in for you?

  4. Wow.

    When I post mine, it will cause all readers to puke. Or else send me a used desk in the mail.

    I have a no-desk setup. It is what I like to think of as the “poverty system.”

  5. Hey Matt, I’m pretty sure that’s the Red Alert 3 poster, not the C&C 3 one.

  6. @trollin: Yeah, you’re right. I was thinking C&C: RA3. Forgot the RA part.

  7. You look to type? That’s almost as bad as keyboard turning!

  8. Made to Stick. That’s right next to me. Thanks for everything.

    I’m feeling shallow today, so I too want to know who is in the picture =)
