    I am thinking about getting Dual Monitors. I would like to see some pics of some setups that you all have.

    Do it! Multi monitor setups are the best. I can't think of using the computer without it now.

    I use the portrait monitor mostly for email, and for editing vertical photos.

    The right screen I use for my IM windows, mp3 display, meeting maker (work) window.

    And the center window I use to do most of my work (mostly ssh windows to my work servers for coding, sys admin stuff, etc) and display OT.

    I love it -- voice quality is excellent and the phone is quite flexible (lots of features). The phone has a built in speakerphone with polycom components, and you can also plug in a headset. Between the handset, speakerphone, and headset I can use the phone in the manner I see fit.

    I have mine set up where it rings at both my office at work and at home. This is the ideal work from home setup. Nobody knows if I'm at home or in the office when they call my extension.

    BUT, the phone by itself is worthless. It needs to be connected to a Cisco call manager. You can't easily connect the phone to your normal phone line. So if you don't have the other stuff (Cisco call manager, some way of connecting to the PSTN -- ISDN B channels, AS5200, etc) then I don't recommend getting it as you won't be able to use it.

    When I was a senior in high school I got a summer job for two guys that were starting up a high end car accessories shop. I wasn't into cars that much at the time, but that summer changed me. I spent the whole summer hanging out with car guys, and got hang around and drive some really great cars including all kinds of ferraris, a real AC (Shelby) Cobra, 67 vette, jag e type, etc.

    I wrote a point of sale and inventory system for them. At the end of the summer the two owners gave me the chair as a bonus for a job well done.

    That was a great summer! :)

    almost all modern cards support dual monitors (usually they have one DVI port and one VGA port). Or, just find an old PCI video card and throw it into your system. Windows XP (and I think 2000) will support dual monitors natively.
