So here's a photo i just took of the place I spend many hours per day. The Dell is being replaced this week with what is now in my signature.

I've been working on my recliner for some time now and just today I thought it would be nice to get the Cintiq added (instead of being on the table to the side), a rack for the new cpu and a UPS. I could then move the whole system around at will. Muhahahahaha. :D

Wow what a sweet setup. What do you have the cintiq mounted on?
With the tacked leather chair it looks very "steampunk" .

Personally, I've been spending more time learning modo... ahem.
Sadly, unless NT pulls out a can of whoop-*** with LW10; 9 will be my last upgrade. I'm rooting for them though, I really am!

Hey Jockomo. (Thanks for the kind words about my cat Bud.) The Cintiq is mounted like my keyboard, on a double articulate arm that slides down a pipe essentially. The fancy pipe is clamped or otherwise attached to the table. I bought some aluminum and bent it for my mouse pad on one side and the keyboard on the other. If I can get the monitor mounted someway, I'll be able to draw on my lap nearly.

I believe NT will pull out that can of Boise. I gotta spend a few bucks somewhere in any case.

Well, car acidents won't stop you from doing your job.
Looks a bit Stephen Hawking and Wallie ate the same time. But as the years pass by and you get older, its value will increse :P

Bahhh its just envy talking here. I wish i had one setup like that :thumbsup:

OK, that is 50% really cool, and 50% kind of hilarious! Recliner on wheels!

edit: JM, would you be insulted if I dubbed this "red-teck" vs. "red-neck"? lol! I grew up in a trailer, so no insult intended... ;)

You obviously don't know me :D,

No, I would not be insulted. The very idea. I mean, I understand the idea of "being insulted," I understand that someone may even have the INTENT to insult me, but - uh - good luck with that! :D I am after-all a comedian in training.

Ahem. Anyway - any ideas on how to get the Cintiq and cpu on-board?

Does the Cintiq have a Vesa compliant mount on the back? I'm thinking getting an arm and mounting it from the ceiling somehow...

You bet! I'll take a pic right quick. Been updating my networking system around here.

...or wall mount. :D

Plus, here's the vesa compliant pic.

mattclary ps: I wouldn't like that particular mount for my Cintiq because it's not real easy to change angles.

it's not real easy to change angles.

So mount it so it comes UP rather than down. it looks like the angle would be perfect if it was mounted below you.

In case you're not kidding, that particular arm is good for normal monitors of which only minor adjustments need be made. Everything articulates, just not as easy as the one the Cintiq is attached to. I'll be right back with more photos, etc.

I've had my articulate arms for a couple years. I just saw one on the internet that would be real nice to have if it could handle the weight.

The Cintiq arm could go on any pipe like in the photo. The other arm would need [edit] the lower portion replaced with a more friendly setup for a Cintiq.

I'm jealous of all your articulating monitors!

Awesome setup, JM! :jam:

Thanky IMI. Now here I go again. Thankfully it's very nasty on the Oregon coast this morning, so MAYBE there won't be a lot of interruptions. I have a wedding Saturday :eek: so I gotta get 'er done.
