New Set Up

The other day we were just hanging out at home and Jeff came up from the basement with one of our old monitors.  I should tell you that my husband is a "techie" and there is no shortage of equipment at our house.   He maintains all of the computers and builds servers for the company that he works for.  He loves working with technology and I would say that there are A LOT of perks to having an IT guy in the house.  I asked him what he was doing and he said "you'll see".  He called me over a little bit later and said "what do you think of this set up".  He had put our old monitor next to my current monitor.  He had Photoshop set up on my regular monitor and ACDSee was open on the old monitor next to it.  As he moved some of my products over from ACDSee on the old monitor to Photoshop on my regular monitor....well, you probably heard the screams!  It is AWESOME and it is so much easier to be able to see all of my products and drag them right over to the other screen without having to flip back and forth.

My husband is clearly in the running for "husband of the year" after this move!  I am so lucky!  If you have an old monitor around, I think you should give a try.  It just simplifies everything.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!


  1. The best part of all is that he is a techie who takes an interest in his wife's work! That is what really makes him special!

  2. This is awesome! I've been wanting a second monitor for this very reason. Way cool that dh did it for you without you even thinking of it.

  3. Jana, I was just trying to do this; but was one cord short! I have no freaking clue what happened to it and you kind of lost me there with the dragging; but now you've peaked my interest again. ONCE this graduation party is over. Unfortunately, my creativity died though and I cannot revive it. VERY bad timing.
