Any tech savvy people out there? I bought a second monitor earlier this year which connects to my laptop via the HDMI port. I was at my parents and they dug up an old monitor that doesn’t have an HDMI port, but it seems to have DVI and D-sub ports. Amazon has DVI/D-sub to HDMI adapters, but my issue is that my computer only has 1 HDMI input. What device do I need so I can use both monitors at the same time? I’m seeing HDMI splitters, but some sources say only one screen will work at a time

Any advice on a standing desk? I just got a new job that is giving me a stipend to buy wfh set up. Thinking of a investing in a nice standing desk (heard Jarvis is pretty good) but also read from the reviews that it is really heavy.. I move around a lot so this is not ideal. Does anyone know of any alternative that are easier to move around ? Also any advice on a good monitor is also appreciated.

Random question: I have a standing desk and frequently utilize it during the day. I feel more focused when I’m standing vs sitting. Would it be unusual for me to do the admissions interviews/video essays also standing up? It wouldn’t be overly obvious but they would likely be able to tell I wasn’t seated in a chair. Thanks

I am not not having the best time. I do not feel interested on my job and find hard to wake up in the morning and do it...or do anything else. It has been a rough year with the pandemic and all. Sometimes I think home office is affecting me too much or May be I am lazy. Or is this depression? Should I see a professional?
