Retro coding set up




Here I am with my very hi-tech retro coding set up. Mrs Hewco snapped a sneaky photo while one of the cats was supervising me. The hi-tech set up consists of a £9 LG monitor found in a charity shop, on a wall mount with a HDMI to VGA adapter (these cost more than the monitor LOL), a £20 Dell monitor from ebay on a dual desk stand connected with a DVI for the computer and HDMI to VGA adapter for The Vic 20 which you can just about see there. Finally my old LG 'TV Monitor' that I've had for donkeys on the other part of the dual desk stand connected directly with HDMI. I have a USB hub driving all the keyboard and monitor stuff.

Then me in the middle, with said cat supervising as I work on a large-ish Vic 20 game. I'll post some screenshots of that when I can.

Good grief!!
For me, it's either just a laptop (no extra monitors, or even a mouse) or a Switch in handheld, with a wireless keyboard.

I haven't done multi-monitors since the days when I used to have my desktop pc hooked into my CRT Telly! And even then, that was just for use as a Trillian Chat screen!!

I often just work on my laptop whereever I happen to be seated to be fair. For this task I am drawing rooms in a large map so the two extra monitors are a godsend. This set up was due to working from home more but I thought I might as well use it for fun stuff too.
