My Workspace

So I went a bit crazy and took some pictures after I finally turned the huge table by 90° and reorganized it. I had to disassemble the whole thing. It has massive support legs and heavy steel horizontal bars to support the surface. This seems super sturdy (and was bought from an insolvency estate sale… oddly enough from a big bank).

One thing I do not understand is how they could design it so low though. Even with the adjustable feet extended all the way you can’t sit properly at this table and type. A visit at the local DIY warehouse and I went to the shop with a 3m 7x10cm scantling, cut it into many small squares and put 8 of them under the extensions of the table. Now I can sit properly and ‚work‘.

Took these images with a Nikon D5200 and a 35mm prime lens @ƒ1.8 and since I’m having so much fun with the Bokeh and the colors that I might have nerded out a bit.

Preparation Loop Syndrome

Like @manvsgame I suffer from what I call ‚Preparation Loop Syndrome (PLS)‘ in regard to twitch and other things as well.

What does this mean?

Well in extreme cases it means preparing for a long time (for ever) for a task without actually ever doing the task itself.

In respect to twitch?

  • went through several phases of rearranging the things on my desk
  • rotated my table (which is extremely heavy. luckily it is of modular design, so one can take it apart)
  • went through phases of rearranging the things on my desk again
  • going through the same phases with a newly bought greenscreen and studio lighting
  • bought little and big hardware things to enhance my not streaming
  • experimented with camera angle and decided to rotated my workspace once more for best angle (sigh)
  • at the same time went through several iterations of overlays/intro/outro videos, raid videos, audio cues and more
  • ran into the keycommand limitation of OBS and decided to buy one more piece of gear to control an application to better manage hotkeys by dkynd
  • due to the re-setup of the streaming studio, I had to rearrange my audio stuff as well
  • experimented with several mics and effect chains for better audio quality
  • programmed a patch for my Nord Modular to allow for automatic gating of dry/wet signal when I play its keyboard
  • to be continued… *sigh
