Life with a 30" Monitor

Back in August, I asked if it was better to have one 30" monitor or two 23" monitors? After many comments, I concluded:

After reading The Large Display Paradox, it seems like I should either find something like WinSplit Revolution for the Mac, or get 2 monitors. I agree with everything that Jeff Atwood says about maximizing windows, that's why I originally thought two 23" monitors might be better.

For some reason, I threw this conclusion out the window in September and bought myself a 30" monitor. Within minutes, I concluded He who says 30" monitors are no good has never owned one. It's simply one of the coolest computing devices I've ever purchased. It makes developing in my home office simply awesome.

Below is a picture of my home office. The fireplace and "AirTunes to Bose System" make it one of my favorite offices ever.

Big Changes for Joe and DWR

I'm thrilled to see DWR join the Dojo Foundation and Joe Walker join SitePen. This couldn't happen to a nicer guy. I first met Joe at the Ajax Experience in San Francisco 2 years ago. Great guy, awesome open source project. Well done Joe!
