My desk at work:



I set up the Mac Mini today. It's a late 2014 model with a i5, Fusion Drive, Iris graphics, etc. So far so good. I do miss not having a 2nd monitor. I may need to fix that.

At the start of the school year, our network specialist and I elected to move into a classroom that opened up at the school building we work out of. Before, I was out in the server room, and he was in the attached office with our SIS specialist.

This move gives everyone more space (we have a imaging desk behind and to the right of me and a bunch of open floor space in the room) and the SIS specialist a greater ablitiy to concentrate and do what he does best - crunch and interpret bucket loads of reports and data.

It's also nice to not freeze my ass off all the time too, and the room has access to the main computer lab in the school, as you can see.

What I don't like: Having to bite my tongue - The server room was isolated enough to where we could swear without abandon. Now, not so much.

Desk at work. Dell XPS 15 laptop + 2x Dell U2413f screens with DisplayPort daisy-chaining (only one miniDP cable to laptop for both), simple but surprisingly good Logitech K280e keyboard, and similarly simple but good Logitech M500 mouse. Makes for a nice workplace.

Also, potato camera quality is potato. G2 doesn't like dim Friday night office lighting.

Lol. Everyone in the company gets a picture of themselves on their desk, it helps to identify said desk (as opposed to "flex" desks that can be used by anyone).

One of the running gags with the Tech Dept. is that we tend to get moved around at random. This is my new office (well, desk arrangement in the pics anyway)- yes it's been only 8 months since I moved the first time:





The room is in a different building - it was a computer lab in our grade 7 and 8 building...before being turned into a district training room and then into our room. The good news is that the whole department is now in one room. No more having to go across campus to one office to get parts, etc. We will have 4 imaging stations once the additional racks arrive so we can do a ton of computers at once. We also have a conference table as well as workbenches - especially important for me and another coworker who will likely do a lot of Chromebook repairs as our 1 to 1 initiative expands to include the buildings I'm responsible for - 2 elementary schools and one intermediate (5th and 6th grade) school.

Overall, it's a huge improvement from the various offices we worked out of before. Of course, the question is... how long will this last before we get to move again? :lol:

Ikea Signum cable managment underneath each desk, also I've put some transparent plastic foil on the wall to keep it clean. Works really great so far!




The desk is actually a kitchen worktop, I like the texture on it.




The drawers have a double purpose. Besides storage, I've hidden the power cables behind them. Covered the original plug in the wall, connected two power strips and mounted them behind the first drawer (which is a bit shallower because of that) and made holes in the sides for the cables.




Speaker volume control is mounted on the bottom of the desk, always on hand but never in the way.




4 holes in the desk for cables, behind each monitor and PC case.




Her setup.
