What niche interest are you up to recently?

Do you work from home? If so, do you have any tips for a home office setup?
I will have a considerable amount of time in a work-from-home situation. Regarding remote work, I personally feel that one important aspect is having all work-related items within easy reach. By setting up the desk in a way that creates the most comfortable environment, it significantly enhances work efficiency.
What's your desk setup aesthetics?
In reality, I haven't given much thought to the style of the desk setup. The primary focus is on the convenience and comfort for both work and leisure. If I were to categorize it, I would say it might lean towards a hardcore style, if any.
Your advice for beginners getting into Desk Setup.
Desktop setup isn't about the price of a specific device; it's more about whether it fits well into my desk environment and serves a high utility. My personal suggestion is to first consider whether a device plays a crucial role in your work or entertainment and then think about aesthetic aspects.
