One where creativity can be seen

Usually people keep their workspaces nice and tidy, while i usually don't because of my mindset: "ideas take up space" (though i tend to avoid clutter)

 Workspace setup as of january 2020

My history with PC's stuff started since 1999 when my dad got a Pentium 2 350 based PC. using it for work administration and allowing me to play games on it when he wasn't working on it.

I stayed on that Pentium 2 till youtube videos became unplayable (even with a the processor running at 450MHZ by a fsb overclock overclock) in2007.

I then got myself a (for the time) nice gaming PC (AMD athlon x2 5600+ with ATI x1650 256MB graphics), upgrading the CPU to a AMD athlon x2 6000+ cpu.

In 2011 i built my second own PC (AMD Phenom 2 x6 1055T with AMD HD 5770 graphics), but in Micro-ATX form, and fell in love with how it turned out and which i am still using mainly.

Software workflow

It usually is doing one thing at a time, without background interference (chat apps) closed, notifications off and minimal interruption for focussing on what i am doing. Sometimes it helps me to have some music playing in the background.

I use one screen, and i find virtual workspaces a bit of a hassle (might change that with a custom mapped keypad sometime).

I do things rather a bit slower and checking for errors than hurry and stressing out on with additional work later on.
