The Return of the Shoutbox!

I'll start-

I'm an uncle! My sister-in-law had a baby girl yesterday. I look foward to being her crazy uncle and a gently corrupting influence. :D

Congratulations!!!!! There is nothing better in the universe than a crazy uncle. I say that because that's how I felt about mine. What a wonderful man he was.

Once again...CONGRATULATIONS!!!

I took most of yesterday off from studying to reorganize my desk area and get it set up for studying. I switched from my old desk to a desk I'd thrifted back in December and cleared out a bunch of crap I didn't need anymore. Seriously... disks for windows 3.x?!?! :lol: Until yesterday, I'd studied on the couch until the ergonomics gave me back problems. I then mostly shifted to the dining room table where I monopolized the entire table top, still had neck problems, and was aggravated by my inability to find a good position for books. My new desk has a keyboard tray, so the laptop is folded open and set on the tray with the keyboard exposed. An auxiliary monitor is plugged in and set on a shelf above the desk surface making it eye level. The book is propped at an angle on the desk surface, leaning on the monitor shelf, enough of an angle that pages stay open. Plus, a hastily rigged section of non-skid mat prevents the book from slowly sliding out of position.

Today: studying for several hours - no discomfort yet! With the added bonus that I can easily see/reach everything and it all stays where I put it! Smudge approves because it means there's enough lap exposed for him to snuggle again!
