I wanted to have a “simple” solution for an (external) backup of my USB stick. The simplest way would be copy and paste, but I wanted something more robust. So what gets you robust copying of files in Windows? Robust File Copy – robocopy –, of course.
I use this manually, but for internal or permanently attached drives etc. this could be automated with task planning and removing the user promts.
I wanted to have a standing desk, but still be flexible. Also, I didn’t want to replace my actual desk with my gaming pc setup on it. So I built a simple add-on for an existing desk.
I just measured the height the keyboard and the monitor or laptop should be at and bought corresponding furniture legs and mounting brackets. I used untreated spruce glued laminated timber in 80 cm x 50 cm and 80 x 30 cm. Both are 18 mm in thickness.
Unfortunately, I mixed up the finish and bought both polished and matte metal pieces, but this doesn’t bother me too much.
It occurred to me only afterwards to share this, so I only have got a few pictures and no footage of the process. But it’s pretty straightforward since there are only a few screws (M4 x 16) and two drilled holes involved.

This enabled me to build the following using a http command with a Shelly button 1:Continue reading “Panic Button/Silent Alarm with innovaphone IP PBX and optional Shelly button 1”
