OK, I’m getting stressed about my setup. With the pushed-back delivery date, I had not a care in the world and knew my hobby room had the space, window and power to get the GF up and running. I figured I could adjust things after it got here and I learned what exactly would work best. Plus, I was waiting to see how things worked out in the real world of pre-release units. Well…crap…now my hobby room won’t be available and I’m very limited on my set up. (A friend became homeless and poof, we got a needy roommate in our itty-bitty house. Whatcha gonna do :-/ ) My options are now the garage, main living room or, as a very last resort, maybe a big chunk of my little family/computer room.
So my question to those with real-world experience, what are my real needs or limitations?
Here’s what I’m working with/without…
-no laptop, desktop only with Wifi. How close does it have to be? I get that it would be nice to have them together, but does it have to be? Or is it really not workable to have them far apart?
-Old house with crank windows that open vertically so it’s gonna take some work for exhaust. It will have to be something I can easily remove when not in use. Might need to run a bit of hose outside and away from the house with fan to assist. Feasible?
-Power…again, old house. Any worries or any special concerns?
Anything you think is a must have/do? What about things you don’t HAVE to have, but would be beneficial?
In my fantasy world, I’m hoping to put it on a table, plug it in, run a hose out a window far enough away that it won’t blow back and be good to go. But I’m honestly a bit worried about finding a new place for it. I know I could likely search this all out in the forum, so I apologize if these are repetitive questions. I just need some reassurance from users more than anything I think.
