It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

Entire inside of the house is covered in crazy dust.... Keeping the office doors shut to prevent, as much as possible, the dust from getting all over screens, computers, network drive, routers, home automation hubs, battery backups etc. So with all the noise and my new trade machine awaiting on-site tech support still no trading happening. Arrrrr

I seriously need a nice office with a good view !!!.. it is almost 10 months since I quit my job and the one room setup is beginning to tire me out, esp hiding from the kids part. I am talking to a prop / HFT firm here on Monday for platform development and trading ( they have a trading desk other than HFT ). Let us see what life brings next !!!!

I am using the programming books as monitor stand... may have to find a different stand for monitors !!

Thank you Som, appreciate the offer. I am stuck with this setup as my main monitors doesn't have VESA mount. I may have to redo my home office, if I choose to continue work from home.

Mine doesn't have the holes, the back is flimsy. I have seen VESA mount adapters for non VESA monitors but it is a clumsy solution. I am not replacing them now as it fits well in the small space I have.
