What a mess ;)

My desk hasn't change much since June, only a new TV on the right ;)

Edit: that book is my chemistry book, chapter about Organic Chemistry.

The wall-mounted screen looks nice and keeps the desk tidy. :) I suppose that would look awesome with a big widescreen LCD...

^^ Yes, it's a great solution to make room on your desk :). And a bigger LCD screen is 1 of the things that I want at the moment, 15" is quite small...

It is, not many people know what that magazine is anyway. Most people wouldn't have even seen it if it wasn't pointed out.

This isn't all of my stuff, it's just my main setup down here in the basement. :P


The screen of my main computer (the one with the big blue fans).
Image

My computers on the cart.
Image

My thermal electric fridge for beverage storage. ;)
Image

Another PC setup.
Image

A third PC setup.
Image

The laptop table.
Image

Old eMachines eOne. I don't use it much but it does work. XP Professional installed. :P
Image

My radio, which is connected to my PC's line-in, allows me to listen to FM and [censored] while gaming or browsing. :P There's obviously some other [censored] on that table too.
Image

...and that's all I feel like taking pictures of for now. That's my setup. ;)

Apparently I don't have any recent photos of my desk. I found these old ones, though. Links to higher resolution photos.

Summer, 2004:
http://www.typewritten.org/~bear/lj/desk04.jpg

PowerBook G4, IBM 3116 printer, S-VHS editing deck, PowerMac G4 DP, a pair of 23" Cinema Displays, Canon i9100 printer, Zaurus SL5600, C= 2002 NTSC video monitor, Hi-8 editing deck, HP3000 917LX, DEC AlphaStation 1200.

Winter, 2001:
http://www.typewritten.org/~bear/lj/desk01.jpg

PowerMac 8500/120, IBM PC Server 315 (NEXTSTEP 3.3), USR Courier HST Dual Standard modem, Umax Astra 1200 scanner.

And these two photos of my shop, also from Winter, 2001:

http://www.typewritten.org/~bear/lj/shop01a.jpg

my old '486 tower PC (purple), IBM AS/400 9406-500, Symbolics 3650 LISP machine, SGI IRIS 3130, SGI Onyx RealityEngine2, another SGI Onyx RE2. There's also an Atari XL1200 on the right.

http://www.typewritten.org/~bear/lj/shop01b.jpg

I don't even know what all is in this photo. I see an IBM PS/2 Model 95, my old '486, a Macintosh SE/30 on the floor, a NeXT MegaPixel monitor, an Apple //c+, a bunch of CD-ROM drives, some EISA token ring and SCSI cards, a soldering iron, a stack of Sun SCSI drive enclosures, an SGI Indy, a Quadra 700, an IO 2677C twinax terminal for the AS/400, and a bunch of weird stuff in the background (looks like an Apollo, maybe a DN4000, a PS/2 model 70, an Amiga 3000, some old Convergent NGEN workstations, an Olivetti P6060, who knows?)

Yes, my shop is usually that much of a disaster. Some things don't change.

Admin edit: Read the rules. DO NOT hotlink images!!! Next time i'll simply delete the post.

Yeah, it's an eMachines eOne, a Celeron powered machine. It originally had Windows 98 on it. :P But trust me, it's not an iMac. ;)

Laptop + bed FTW

And the cluttered desk where my server lies. The printer is my favorite Canon BJC-2110, and the device on top of the tower is a Syquest SyJet 1.5 GB cartridge drive. It's SCSI on a parallel port adapter, and it's slow, but it's just a backup/archival drive :P

Oh, and don't forget the mini fridge and PS2 hooked up to the TV to its right (it's not shown). Oh yeah, and the Wii :P

Also my neighbour gave me couple of Tandberg speakers today, they look great with the desk, and have pretty good sound too.

Bonus pic I shot yesterday.

Edit:
Reorganised room

Yeah I do :) And yes it does. It was running on it in this photo as well (well, the power I stored from solar today).
