Took me well over a year to finally buy a notebook stand but my neck and back are glad that I did. The stand is Targus AWE26US Ergonomic M-stand which amazon sells for just under $28 USD and it is well worth the money as it is sturdy and holds the notebook at an angle that approximates a stand alone monitor. Tossing in a cheap keyboard and mouse set from Logitech kept the whole bill under $50 USD. Not too shabby.
Up on the walls are my basses, a Washburn XB-600 fretless and an AB-20 fretless/acoustic, and out of the picture is my Seagull S6 acoustic guitar. This past summer I hung them up in the hopes that I might start playing them a little more and while I’m not writing any opuses I have found myself pulling them down and letting muscle memory run through some scales and modes while I think about scaling websites.
Slowly it is coming together and maybe when it warms up a little more I’ll seal the floor and paint it which would pretty much finish the yearlong project of renovating this room as an office. Provided I can stay on task and keep motivated.
