New delivery

My workstation from Sun has just arrived.  It’s in two huge boxes: one containing the workstation itself, the other a 24″ monitor (Luxury!) and some accessories.  The workstation is obscenely big (says 25Kg on the box), but fortunately the delivery man from DHL helped carry it upstairs as a two-man job.

Now my task for the weekend is to clear out some space.  I don’t have room on the desk for two monitors, so I’m going to have to put aside the el-cheapo 19″ jobbie I’ve been using for the past few years.  And I already have a spare monitor: the 19″ CRT that preceded the move to flatscreen serves for just-in-case, and could even see active use again if I get into fast-moving games or watching video.

The workstation itself can live on the floor to the left of the desk.  It’s a space I rarely need to access, and sometimes serves as floor-based filesystem.

Longer-term, I need more desk-space!
