After having my setup just the way I like it with a dual screen setup for my Chromebook & a dual screen setup for my Windows Laptop depending which system I need to use, I recently added an Xbox 360 to my setup. This is how I integrated the Xbox 360 into my setup.

My Home Office Set-up (April 2015)

My Home Office setup isn't like the video tours that you see on YouTube, it used to similar at one time. It’s now a lot more modest and minimalistic, but it works well for me.   So here’s my text and picture tour of my Home Office as it didn't seem worth while doing a YouTube video. The storage part of my Home Office is an old Computer desk that houses a Box of Printer Paper, a Shredder, a Box of Envelopes and a brown box that has some Computer stuff on the bottom shelf, the Keyboard drawer has an old Microsoft Multimedia Keyboard while the top shelf has a Printer Organizer with mostly odd bits of scrap paper and the charger for my Asus Google Nexus 7, Bluetooth headphones and my Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 USB Headset & on top of it I've got my Kodak esp 1.2 AIO Printer.

Putting An Old Desktop PC To Use With Linux (Update)

I was going to put my old Desktop pc to use running Ubuntu Linux on it, but unfortunately after testing it last night and everything worked fine. When I came to install Ubuntu on it this morning I somehow ended up killing the Power Supply after adding a second HDD so I'll not be able to use it unless I can find a cheap compatible Power Supply for Motherboard that's inside somewhere so this little project is on hold for now.

Putting An Old Desktop PC To Use With Linux

In this series I'll be putting an old Desktop Tower PC that I built back in the early 200's into use running More than likely Linux or possibly Window Server 2003 unless I can find drivers for al the different Motherboard Chipsets, Graphics and Audio for Windows 7, 8/8.1 or even the Windows 10 Technical Preview, as the last time I tried Windows newer than Windows XP on it was Windows Vista and I struggled to get everything to work due to none existent drivers for anything other than the Nviidia Graphics card that I installed in it.

Home Office Set-up Upgrade Time (Update 2)

  After my last Article about my Home Office upgrade I thought that I'd write an update on the upgrade.

HP LaserJet Pro P1102w Wireless Mono Laser Printer
The HP LaserJet Pro P1102w is definitely more economical than my Kodak esp1.2 All In One InkJet Printer.
