    Default Found a solution for cat blocking my screen


    mmm can't see screen, can cause trouble at times.

    Solution? Add box, instant cat trap.



    So far does not work as well on the older cat.



    Sometimes they gang up on me

    The younger one was trolling your build and twitch skills until you made him comfy. The older one is campaigning for Tabaxi as a pc race.

    a folded towel works good too, if you have no box at hand,
    or just don't get an attention-whoring cat in the first place...

    Yes. There are cats that are raised with dogs and are unaware that they are in fact cats. They act very differently. I miss mine desperately, she passed after just twelve years. People ask me to adopt other cats/kittens all the time but their personalities are nothing like hers. Its just not the same.

    Default Better Homes and Garden

    Good taste in desks. I'm currently using the Ikea V2 Jerker as well with 2 side swivel mounts in the same color of birch. I used the shelf on the bottom and that has all my cpus on it and the monitors are all up top with noting over the main screen. Once I feel better maybe I will snap a pic and add to the thread.

    Also nice cats!

    I wish Ikea still had this desk. I would not mind getting more parts for it or maybe even a second one. This one is configured as a standing desk and works very well for me.

    You can

    EBay and Craigslist. ebay is a little step and you find better deals on Craigslit. I bought mine new but would like an extra shelf as well. And once I get new KVM swith I would like to go back to 4 monitors total, 2 for each pod.

    Check out this neat little site, https://www.jerkersearcher.com/

    I'm using mine as a stand up as well. I will try and get a pic for you. Also Im scouring craglist at the moment and found some in my area for a nice price.

    I am aware of the page you linked, great page. When I say I wish Ikea still , I do mean Ikea. I hate dealing with Ebay or craigslist

    Would love to see a pic of you set up.

    Default Check it out!

    Too bad my cat didn't want to cooperate and stay on the desk. He doesn't like heights. I know right?

    This is a temp. set up. I usually only have one keyboard and 2 mice, but my KVM switch burned out on me and I've yet to get another one. I usually have the laptop in front of the ergo. keyboard and can play 2 toons at the same time. Usually suck at it, but sometimes I come out the winner

    The monitor to the right is there for my DDO spreadsheet and maps, so I don't have to alt+tab (yes I can be that lazy at times). I usually run an amp and 4 channel DJ mixer for the 4 computers sound, instead of the 2 tiny ones you see in my screenine (they're temp. as well). Down to 3 machines ATM and need switch, ugh, c'mon income tax return!

    I've got lots more computer gear, but I like to run light with just my ergo and laptop keyboards and 2 mice. I really should add a 3rd mouse IMO. Less reach than the KVM switch.



    EDIT ~ my desk lamp is in the lower left corner on the floor for now. Once I'm fully back up and running I'll reinstall the light for the desk. In fact, I have a nicer one I'm going to replace it with.
    EDIT 2 ~ where laptop is ATM, is normally where the food an drink goes, as the arms can easily swivel. Would be nice to have the food stuffs back on the platform and not on the desk. Can't wait.

    These are probably what drove them from the market. There are all types and lots of ways to acceserize and many versions, https://store.ergotron.com/?gclid=EA...SAAEgKl7PD_BwE

    I use these types of set-ups in other venues all the time. There are many brands and versions. That was just a quick example above. Amazon has allot to offer in ergo IMO. And sometimes at better prices.

    Love the cat trap!

    The dual dell displays like that reminds me of working for the Matrix.

    Livmo, you may want https://lifehacker.com/254648/how-to...oard-and-mouse, or Synergy on windows. There is an older free version out there. You would have to run the game in windowed mode, however, one mouse, one keyboard, controlling multiple machines = win.

    I am on a laptop myself. And as for the cats getting between myself and laptop. As I am sitting in my recliner. I generally have at least one cat at any time. There seems to be a schedule.

    Plus a red nose pit mix. who was raised by pne of the cats. She acts sometimes mre like a cat than a dog. lol

    And all cats are Jellicle cats. Thank you T. S. Eliot.

    Somewhere in the distance, Sophie the Cat Burglar hears a cry for help. There is a screen being blocked by some no good, nefarious, evil doing fur ball of a cat. Something needs to be done. Someone needs to teach that fiendish feline a lesson.

    Hugging the shadows, the cat burglar who hates cats rushes with preternatural speed towards the commotion ahead. Without a whisper of sound she opens her purse, reaches in past the lip gloss, past the little tissue dispenser, past the bar of soap she pinched from a hotel, like, 5 years ago, to find the Pink Squirt Gun +22 of Cat Banishing. It is an old and trusted weapon, used in many battles against the demonic felines the dwell within her mom's house.

    Drawing to a corner near the cat-astrophe, she places her back to the wall, shoulders square, shirt gun muzzle down, and makes a quick look around the corner just like super awesome cops do in shows about super awesome cops. It is worse than she feared. Far worse. The commotion was caused by a bunch of cat lovers. Even at 30 meters she could see the cat hair all over their clothing. They were already laying out boxes and towels and kibble to appease their feline overlords.

    Nodding her head from side to side she quickly returned to the shadows and skulked away. Those people could not be helped. There is only so much a bubble-headed, kind of spacey nerd girl can do to combat the evils of the universe. With a touch of sadness she returned the squirt gun to her purse and retrieved a new piece of bubble gum.

    Funny box solution! And cute kitties.

    Do you have a solution for a 100 lb dog? My monitors are on the coffee table and my dog stands in between the monitors and me blocking my view! He also leans on me and puts his head in my lap. I think he's trying to tell me something like, "Get up and take me for a walk!"
