For a while now I’ve wondered just how necessary it is for me to be on campus. I live about five minutes’ walking distance away; when I bike to work, it takes about as long to lock up my bike and walk to my office as it does for me to get to the University.
Now that the official word is “work from home if you can”, I’ve got my laptop at home. Today I grabbed one of my two external monitors, too, so that I can code on one screen and view the results on another.
(Laptop wallpaper: The Fountain of Indolence by J. M. W. Turner; external monitor wallpaper: my photo of the Milky Way from summer 2019.)
Also, it turns out that a book on mythology is integral to my setup; without it, the external monitor isn’t up high enough.
(My ISP’s upload speed is pretty abominable, but that’s a problem for another day, I think.)
