    I'll play along. Two desks, I spin around to face either. One is for the community organization I do work for, and do my personal email, sar stuff etc on. The other more elaborate setup is my work, with laptop screen ( typically folder explorer, or secondary file open, the 27" monitor for work. The side monitor is a USB portable that has my email, Microsoft Teams chat. Mouse is wireless, mid range quality, and headset is an old school wired in to audio ports. I have a docking station for this laptop, but it covers up the HDMI port, so next o think I'll get a powered USB extender, and possibly a gaming headset over Bluetooth, as the wired units microphone is too quiet.

    Don't bother zooming in looking for techy info; its nothing there that gives much of anything useful.

    Good luck.

    I'm thinking about getting one of those portable monitors for the laptop to do school work, etc while I'm up bouncing around from NYC and Vermont in the early spring. I'll be up there for about a month. If it even happens with the covid crap still going on. But maybe I'll just put the $ towards a nice 32"+ monitor, I imagine an airbnb would at least have a table or something to set it up on. And I plan on driving up so I can bring it back down to Florida.

    For Spring A semester it's Intro to Operating Systems and Stats & Visualization (intro, math) which should be easy, especially the OS class since I've only been doing IT for 25 years.

    Then for Spring B its foundations of cybersecurity and TCP/IP.

    What about using a projector? It would be easy to take with you and could make the screen as large as you like.

    If I knew what wall space was available that would work. Some places have so much crap on their wall.

    Are those tiny projectors any good? I've set up some bigger ones at work before but haven't tried the little ones, but I see them for sale all over the place.

    I have a cheap($100) RCA projector that we have used for outdoor movie night. It did well for our needs. I imagine the focus could be the biggest issue depending on distance from projector to the wall. I'm not familiar with the tiny ones. I'll see what I can find online.

    Found him. Left his stuck sled behind, 24F out, snowing, and windy. Brought him into a warmed up cabin, to get out of wet clothes, into dry replacements, warm drink into him and warm up by the wood stove. About an hour later ready for the 10 mile ride down hill doubling on a sled, back to the parking lot to get checked out by the ambulance crew. He was in the same place we found a kid last season that got separated from the family.
