Machines - my development setup.

It is funny. As a programmer, you have a history with the machines you use. Most people have stories of old machines and fun times had with games, BBSs, BASIC, etc. You know, history.... The first time you got a math co-processor/modem/soundcard/color/8bit/16bit/etc. Your mouth actually drops at upgrades like hearing your computer make rich sound or detailed graphics. Computers are always evolving.

It is a bit crazy the number of computers that I have had in the past. But each one gets used until it doesn't work anymore....or it has been way surpassed in capabilities. I started using computers when I met the Atari 800XL, I programmed BASIC on it using the BASIC programming books and magazines. I would sit and type in code that I had no clue how it would work....all in hopes that it might run without any syntax errors. I also played the Atari 2600 a lot...

(todo insert more history)

Right now I've currently use:

Chair
As a programmer, you are always sitting. Investing in a nice adjustable chair is a must.
I have the leather version of this chair and I like it a lot.


Mobile setup
I like to use laptops for remote work. If I'm leaving the house, I take one of my laptops or multiple so that I can build and test on multiple machines at one time.
