        Thanks for the try, Uninvited Writer, but you might as well have written that in Mandarin Chinese. All that technical stuff really is alien to me and I've no idea what you mean... sad

    a little closer to see the art, left side pc runs XP and is used for reference - has a program called rainmeter so the desktop has some fun customized widgets., right side runs win7 , and is the heavy duty PC used for Graphic/Web/media Design, it also streams media to my living room and well, anywhere smile

    Desktop is usually far cleaner but I tend to throw quick backups onto the desktop when working on design files. Usually looks more like the laptop below.

    Its two computers (5 hard drives total) that share one mouse and keyboard via synergy

    ^XP Laptop used primarily for Browsing and Writing from the couch or cafes.

    Living Room Plasma often used to display any of the above or used for netbook (pictured)

    And as of last week - 3 of those PC's can be used remotely via my Droid 2 smile

        I was trying to figure out how to take a screen shot, but hell I'll just stay here and people might think yours is mine too

        1. sunforged profile image65
          sunforgedposted 5 years ago in reply to this

          here try this.

          memorize it because once you start you wont be looking at this screen anymore.

          Press the 'Windows"(bottom left, little flag thing)  key and the "d" button

          This will make all the windows disappear so you can see your desktop.

          Then Press: Alt + Prt Scr (usually in the top right of your keyboard)

          This will copy the desktop image to your clipboard,just like highlighting and copying text.

          So now you have to paste it.

          I usually click the start button (bottom left of your screen next on your task bar)

          and then click "run" its the first option on the bottom right

          type "mspaint" hit enter

          then press "ctrl + v" (to paste from your clipboard)

          Save as png or jpg


          Then you can upload it to your hubpages photos and then insert it here with a ]img[ tag

      sunforged, what a setup.  You should write a hub about it.  How you control PCs from mobile phones anyways?

      1. sunforged profile image65
        sunforgedposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        There are many ways. all which involve having the phone access your home network and using dedicated apps.

        Its been a few months, so I had time to play .. I dont really use the phone much as a remote keyboard or mouse, that was just an early novelty, but controlling windows media player so I can change songs or chapters from anywhere my wifi reaches on the property is indispensable as is streaming the library from the computer to phone if I dont want to use the home theater system.

        Its really easy, most of the related android apps have a set up screen tat walks you through in seconds

      I started working online doing mostly ebay sales. Everything pictured probably cost me less than most spend on a mid range laptop from a big box store. One of those lcd screens was picked up for $17 at a Salvation Army! the other was donated by a client who upgraded their office tech smile

        Oh. my. word. 

        I am absolutely going to hide this post from my husband!  His former profession was computer (hardware) repair, and he still dabbles in it as a much-loved sideline and hobby.  We have used and useless keyboards, base units, laptops, and desktop monitors strewn all over the house - some of them spilling their insides while he takes a good loooooonnnnggggg look to see if there is anything worth salvaging.  Every time a package arrives from Computer Geeks I cringe a little (but I do say, it's usually worthwhile).  If Ron knew he could find anything of value from Salvation Army, he would never spend any of his spare time or family time at home!

        But, on the other hand, maybe I should let him know that I've been inspired to share our bounty on eBay.  Maybe that might inspire him to do it himself.  Hmmmm....
