Well, my battlestation is my classroom now. Spending my day watching classes via Microsoft Teams.

The most distinctive thing in my mess is the box with handwritten cheat sheets.
The computer is a Thinkpad T430 with the keyboard of a T420.
There's also a 5-in-1 turntable with radio and CD/SD card/cassette tape player.

Text might be blurry, but I recognize the album cover. Great choice of music ;)

It was hard finding a picture of my desktop at work, but I've found a pic a coworker had sent me when we were in the beginning of lockdown.

I definitely should've taken my trackball home with me.

And here's my humble workstation at home.

As you can see there are books everywhere. I hope I can build or get a bookshelf soon, as the ones in the pic are only a fraction of them all.
I also often simply sit on the bed with the laptop.

Looks like you have great posture with those books supporting your monitor. Has it helped a lot?

The standing desk is a work-in-progress. The setup I got at home doesn't have a nice sitting position, and thus the first few weeks of lockdown I was standing up 8h a day. After 2 weeks I noticed that my toes were purple, so I took a break and worked from bed until my toes blood circulation went back to normal.

So beware, better switch between sitting and standing position frequently if you want to do that.

Boring and (a bit) messy standard standing desk:

Keyboard is an “R-Go Tools Split Keyboard”. Started using it when all that wrist pain began. I never want to go back to a non-split keyboard now. The flat keys are a bit annoying, though.

That laptop is my work laptop, mic is also only for video conferences. My actual machine is under the desk and even more boring:

I only use that second monitor (which kind of looks like a widescreen monitor, but that’s just the camera, it’s 4:3) when doing work stuff, it then shows our monitoring/alerting. The main action happens on the primary monitor.

OpenBSD machine in the other room:

What the heck. :) Well, I always tend to walk around a little bit anyway, so ...

This is now my daily workstation (working remotely now), borrowed the monitor from the office. Laptops are a t480 and a t430u.

Those are some nice mini plants. Hmm, I might get me some of those as well. :) I assume they don’t require a ton of maintenance?

— edit: I’ve just been told that those might very well be plastic plants. Are they? ;(
