i just sent your pic to a number of CERN guys. I admitted defeat.

They loved it that I had made my own LHC monitoring station. Im sure they will enjoy your efforts. I will let you know responses..

Your arrangement is much better...

I see in the background you have more screens available as well. So you could easily do even more should you want to.

I can see a trend here.. Soon we may see a number of forum members getting computers together for this. You can find old laptops for dirt cheap.

Be my guest although I must confess this isn't a permanent set up and I don't actually own the equipment. But it helps running an IT support department !

I was hoping this would happen. It would be great to see some people post cool setups, number of monitors doesn't really matter just something cool.

Heh, nice one!
Makes me feel like a dummy with my single B&W 640x512 monitor from the stone age...

Same concept, but Active Desktop support with windows went with Vista (or xp?). The little program on the left does the same job.

This is my Starship LHC screen.

I'd like to save the setup so I don't have to rebuild it every time. Any thoughts?
