There’s one guy in every office — particularly in those offices that specialize in all things digital. You know the guy, he’s the one hiding in his room full of screens and servers, secretly figuring out ways to program the world so that it takes itself over for him. You might also know him by his distinctive ability to fix any electronics snafu simply by standing within a few feet of the affected gadget.
He’s the developer du jour. The engineer extraordinaire. You’re not even sure if you want to know the full extent of his powers, but you do know that you can trust him to find a way to fix pretty much anything, rig whatever needs rigging and still have the mental capacity left over to make your logo dance when the user mouses over its special spot.
Anyway, our office certainly has one of those guys. And he knows who he is. And he knows how he likes to work. When the guy was bedridden with a broken leg, he sent us a picture of his makeshift home office. A quarter of an inch of his face, and an entire room full of glowing monitors. So, if there’s anyone who knows how to get you set up to start scrolling in style, it’s this guy.
And, fortunately for the world, he’s sharing his secrets on How To Build A Kickass Workstation for Under $5200.
Well, he’s sharing one secret at least. I’m still not sure how he does that whole fixing-things-by-standing-next-to-them trick. Then again, I’m not sure I want to know anyway. After all, with great power comes great responsibility — not to mention a great many requests for IT help.
