I wanted to share with my fellow LJ’s about my new shop computer. My computer has been located in the showroom about 50 yards away from my shop which isn’t much but go back and forth a few times and a lot of time is wasted. I also broadcast my shop live on the internet for my customers. With the computer up front, I never knew when the feed was down. So I moved it.
I have a window that seperates my back showroom from my shop. I call it the monkey viewing area. I feel like I’m at the zoo. I will do tricks for food! This area was a perfect spot to put the computer. I could leave the CPU and monitor in the clean are of the showroom and pipe the keyboard, mouse, speakers, and USB cables through the wall.
I can now monitor my video feed, answer emails, and listen to some high quality music. Speaking of the video feed I may try a feature that I havn’t used before the chat box. If I need to I can chat directly with my customers or anyone else. (see video and chat at the bottom of page)
