April 2022 Wall Layout Update: Cool Preview

DK/ April 10, 2022/ What's Next

I have made several major updates to the wall layout since June 2021. I got rid of most of the old monitors and replaced them with 4K TVs, added a Cisco Precision 60 conference camera mounted to the mounting plate from the June 2021 tablet mount solution, which is mounted to a monitor arm, and replaced the inverted Alienware mousepad with a VESA keyboard mounting solution turned upside-down and covered with mousepads. The larger surface area allows me to move the mouse pointer all the way across all of the monitors without running off the edge and having to pick up the mouse and move it back to the other side of the mousepad. It is also a great place to put a touchpad and whatever other input devices I happen to be using. I also added a Microsoft HoloLens (1st Gen), formerly known as the Developer Edition.

June 2021 Wall Layout Update: Now even cooler

DK/ June 5, 2021/ What's Next

I've made several updates to my wall layout over the past year. Almost every monitor is now attached to an arm or some kind of wall mount. I added the keyboard, mouse, and tablet mounts. The mouse mount is made out of some monitor arms and extensions and an old warped hard-shell Alienware mousepad turned upside down and attached to the VESA mounting plate. The tablet mount is part of a leftover monitor arm from the mouse mount solution with an adapter plate for a monitor that I don't own attached to it, and part of a tablet mount for a Tony Little exercise bike that I don't own attached to that.

DK’s Cool eGPU Experience – Part 1: Mini PCI-E

DK/ September 18, 2019/ eGPU Series

The term "eGPU" refers to an external graphics processing unit. It is a video card that is externally attached to a computer, and not integrated or attached inside of a case. An "eGPU dock" is the adapter used to connect the video card to the computer. The term "enclosure" might be used in place of "dock" for adapters that feature a housing for the video card.

Does this ever happen to you? You're trying to open an admin command prompt in Windows 10, and want it to start in the path of an Explorer window that you already have open, but when you Shift+right-click, the option isn't there.

Today, I will show you how to open the admin command prompt in an explorer window with ONLY TWO CLICKS! You read that correctly. TWO CLICKS!
