Haven’t posted my setup in awhile. Cleaned up my desk a little more and added the Henge Dock which replaced the Book Arc not too long ago. I know there’s a lot of dust showing in the photos but I just cleaned it off!!!
I really like having Sizzlers for lunch and it’s actually my favorite places to work out of. Just bring a laptop and wireless card and I can sit there for hours. It’s definitely much better than working at Starbucks because it is definitely much quieter and you get a large table for your laptop and other documents. I get claustrophobic in those coffee shops and the music they sometimes play annoys the hell out of me.
For what you can get at $9.99 during lunch (steak and salad bar), it’s a great value. The photos attached are what I usually get!!!
My MacBook Pro 15″ is awesome going on the road when migrating from workspace to work space, but when I work at home or in my main office, I like having it hooked up to a 21+ inch sized monitor with keyboard and mouse.
For awhile, I’ve been using the Book Arc as a stand to plug in all the external devices but it became a pain unplugging and plugging everything as I come in go. It’s not really that big of a deal but it was at a point where I was toying with the idea of just getting an iMac to use at home. However, spending around $1200 plus tax to satisfy my laziness doesn’t make financial sense! Unfortunately, there aren’t that many docking options available for the MacBooks except for Bookendz which costs around $250, and then the Henge Docks which is about $70.
Based on the reviews I’ve read, the Bookendz is a solid product and Henge Docks received mix reviews with complaints of reliable, build quality, and difficult setup. I decided to take a chance and go the cheaper route and give the Henge Dock a try, and have been quite satisfied with the product so far. Continue reading
I was up from 12AM – 3AM putting together a futon, TV stand and setting up a 32 inch Dynex LCD TV they had on sale at Best Buy for $249. The photos are in the order of what the room looked like before I set up anything and all the way to the end result! Did all this with an injured left shoulder by myself.

I know it’s been awhile since I posted anything. Been busy with work and life and have been caught up on multiple projects. Have a bunch of articles and gadgets reviews that I’d like to write up. Hopefully I’ll have some time this weekend. Anyway, here’s a collection of my desktop wallpapers that’s continually expanding.
I was at Bob’s Big Boy in Pasadena for lunch which offered free WiFi making it a perfect opportunity to get some work done after I eat. I usually carry my MacBook Air 11″ with me almost everywhere I go so I can take advantage of the air conditioning and free refills on the ice tea on this hot summer day.
One of my favorite workspaces is at Sizzler during the weekend. Unlike Starbucks, I get a big table, lots of space and decent food! I usually carry around my MacBook Air with a 3G USB Wireless card when I go there. Working out of Sizzler is MUCH more productive than out of any coffee house.
