Glad to return to my house after nearly a month. I had commissioned repair works that included the following for the last four weeks: Water tank repairs (water-proofing), Replace the distribution water pipes and install a new pressure pump, Remodelling my work desk from L shape to straight, changed the direction to have natural light to fall on my face, installed two new tube lights above my monitor and on the sides for even light on my face and chin, Installation of wooden panel on the wall for my stamp collections display, New CAT-6 data cabling and CAT-5 voice cabling…

In the past I had written about my preference for having two monitors on my desk, and that I find it to be the single upgrade you can do to improve your productivity vastly. For a few years now, I was using was my laptop (Asus Zenbook) screen as the second monitor. But last year, I moved from the laptop to an AMD desktop PC, with that I was without a second monitor.

On the last one, it seems I had erred in my choice, as the routers didn’t have a Gigabit LAN port which I needed.

I have written quite a few times here on my love for Microsoft Ergonomic keyboard and mouse. One particular model the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Desktop 7000 I used for over a decade from 2007. Two years back I tried to have an affair with Logitech MK850 Keyboard but I quickly realised my mistake and bought a Microsoft Surface Ergonomic Keyboard, which felt fantastic but was a disappointment due to its poor connectivity with Bluetooth. I am a fast three finger typist, so it annoys me when a keyboard lags behind my keypress and appearing on the screen, so wireless keyboards…
