Monitor arm

For a while I’ve been contemplating purchasing an LCD monitor arm, so I decided to make it one of my christmas wishes. Long story short, the Ergotron LX Desk Mount is now in my possession. It brings many benefits, like:

  • Added flexibility of monitor positioning, including rotating the monitor
  • Improved ergonomics
  • Freeing space on my desk (some of which was quickly occupied by my plush friends though)
  • Looking good

Currently I’m not using the extender arm as you can see, but it may become useful in other surroundings in the future.

openSUSE box

Today I received my openSUSE contributor parcel. Including the openSUSE 11.1 boxset containing the printed Start-up guide, a DVD with 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the distribution, an additional CD with non-free software, a couple of laptop stickers and a limited edition openSUSE branded flashlight (batteries included! 😉 ). Also included in the parcel was the special openSUSE contributor t-shirt, with “iContribute” printed on the back.


Of course, I would have traded it all for a little higher quality openSUSE 11.1 release in a heartbeat, but it is a pleasing package nevertheless.
