    A Tour Of David Pitlyuk's Office
    Author: David Pitlyuk
    Date Posted: May 30th, 2001


    It's summer time and school's out for me. Time for me to re-locate out of the dorm and into the summer office. Setup at home wouldn't work because first of all I would have a 56k dial-up connection, which, after being on the University Of Maryland's T3, is super slow. Luckily Interlink Biotechnologies had a spare office I could rent with DSL for the 2-3 months that I will be home.

    I thought some of you may be interested to see where a lot of what happens at takes place (at least for the summer). Just remember that this is just my office, we have a staff of about 9 people (with more to come on-board in the near future) who do their work for the site on their own.

    Alright, enough of the introduction, lets get to the shots:

    The Shots

    A shot of the office from one side of the room. On the left you can see the turntables and further out you can see two of the computers setup on the desk. Take a look at all those wires!

    A shot of the office from the other side of the room. This shot gives you a sneak preview of the desk setup. On the far side of the room you see the hi-fi system and the turntables setup on the right and another mini-conference desk setup with another PC, TV/VCR, and a Dreamcast.

    Here's a clearer shot of the how the actual desk is setup. The system on the right is hooked up to the new 18.1" LCD screen, I must say, a nice addition. Currently the setup on the left is an Athlon 800 with a 40GB Maxtor hard drive (Which will be swapped soon with a 30GB IBM Deskstar 75GXP), and a GeForce2 Ultra. Attached is a MidiLand 8200 speaker system.

    The system on the right is a 1.1GHz Athlon Thunderbird with a 30GB IBM Deskstar 75GXP hard drive, Mushkin high-performance memory, a Visiontek GeForce3, and some other goodies.

    Some of the stuff mentioned you will be seeing reviews of on the site soon, just remember that these specs change constantly as new hardware comes in for testing. We also dual boot WindowsME and Windows 2000 Pro on each system for comparative benchmarking.

    This is the third setup which actually isn't "setup" right now. We're getting ready to stick a new motherboard, some Rambus memory, and a Pentium 4 in there. Also, the scanner, copier/printer, TV/VCR, and Dreamcast reside on this side of the room. The table is also used for some meetings.

    This is just a shelf of stuff. Located here is CD's, extra cables, some hardware like hard drives and motherboards. All here for easy access from the desk.
