No, I'll stay here, thanks. Very grateful there are people like yourself willing to do what others would rather not.

Stay safe!

This is my set up at work. I use a G5 as my main computer, and then I have an old IBM 300GL as my spare back up PC to check the presentations I work on and check websites to make sure they're viewing correctly.

Our software @ work runs only on windows :mad:
the second PC is for Autocad, my mac for the best things (Mail, iTunes, MR, RSS, Office (Waiting for iWork), Photoshop) ;)
I will get a 2nd one in summer ... By now, I'm trying to switch my boss.

too bad i work at a retail store and we've got PCs but i can't take any pictures. It always hacks me off that we run PCs because they are always crapping out and the IT desk is full of idiots... so i'm the only one in 3 states that knows how to fix them...

yeah .....no AC, and it is like 110 in here! im surprised these servers still run but we have HD fails all the time...doesnt surprise me but this is better then where it used to be...in a tent and would get flooded out ever time it rained.....that was a nightmare the first time that happened

and i love this toughbook, even though not to powerful, great for internet(typing on it now) and other small office work.

My School Space:

Oh, right - my school is too cheap to have real computers - only dells with 14" CRTs that dont work and are 6 years old and dont have intenet that were DONATED TO THE SCHOOL last year.

Luckily, my home setup makes up for that - just that its not a mac :(

Here's my messy desk. I don't know how some of you guys manage to keep your work areas so clean. I can't seem to get anything done unless I have my papers scattered all over the place.
Here is my work G5 with dual monitors and my Powerbook on the side. There's a Dell behind me too for when I need to see things from a Windows perspective.

I'd love to post a pic of mine, but it's not very interesting at the moment - I've 'borrowed' the LCD and connected it to my Mac, and I also borrowed the mouse and keyboard. So it's basically just an empty table at the moment :rolleyes:

I was reading about all the tech behind the scenes in popular science, I'm surrised some of that last in those tems(although one summer my room was above 100 degrees)I heard one of those toughbooks took a bullet and saved someones life. Are there backups for the backup hard drives?

the rumor about the toughbook taking a bullet is true....ive heard countless stories, but saw one with my own eyes. during a convoy the front passenger had his toughbook between his thigh and the door, bullet came through the door and into the toughbook his leg fine, not even a bruise. :) the toughbook was unusable afterwards :(
ive also seen these toughbooks run over by 7tons, humvees, and even a tank once(screen got cracked on the last one) but still usable. :D

and yes we back up to harddrive as well as tapes.

They seem amazing those Panasonic laptops.
But in the entire IT department do you or other people use mac's for anything :confused:

yeah i wish the marine corps bought macs....the marine corps is a firm believer in dell :eek: :mad:
there are only 4 toughbooks on this base, im lucky enough to have one of them :D
i have yet to see a single person with a mac out here.....cant wait to get back to mine, im counting down the days 26 till im back in the states :D :D

and the other IT guy i work with he thinks macs used to be dos and just recently copied windows so they can make money :rolleyes: thats a twice daily argument!

i have introduced the mac to some ppl here but im still trying to introduce most to the whole computer idea :rolleyes:
remember most marines arent the brightest of the bunch :p

are there any other work setups, kinda interested in where others make there money....

I don't think the school where I work would let me take pics. :(
I'm an ALT (Assistant Language Teacher) and I can use whatever I want at work. So, I use my iBook, 12'' PB or 15" TiBook :)

The schools all use NECs (dreadful machines) so I have to use m$ office. I save word .docs on my USB flash disk and print them from work machines. Other than that, I never touch windows computers.

I have my own wireless dial-up internet service, so I don't use the school's network, either.

A colleague of mine (not a designer) put that up after hearing us make that joke... to the right, out of frame is another similar set-up (G5 dual 2.5), there's another one to the left about 15ft away.

The 1.25 dual MDD G4 there next to my G5 is the scanning/temps Mac. Just to the left and under the desk are another couple of G4 733 QSs as RIP and server/backup etc. Those 3 machines are hooked up through a KVM switch so we don't have the place cluttered with monitors & keyboards...

It's a nice network especially with the gigabit switch... :cool:

I got my Powerbook 17 in November '04 and have never looked back. The Sony monitor has been sold with my PC so I will have to shoot some more pictures. I am waiting for Rev B of the iMac and it is off to the Apple Store and One Click for Mac #2!

Hope the picture posts?
