I just got everything setup about an hour ago.
It's going to be my workhorse through the rest of the Engineering program I'm in.

Ohhhh... I love it... :D

Nice, How do you like the mac pro, just a random question.

Nice, How do you like the mac pro, just a random question.
So far so good. I'm getting into 3D modeling/animation, and I needed something that could render faster than the 2.0GHz C2D in my Macbook. At school I run everything from Cinema 4D to AutoCAD to Mathematica to Office Apps... usually at the same time. I plan to fully take advantage of the multiple display capabilities of the Mac Pro as my funds replenish from last week's hit. I'm gonna' have to use bootcamp for AutoCAD most likely, but everything else I run is available for the Mac.

I use Mac Pros almost every day at school in the modeling lab, but now I'm glad I have one at home that is available 24/7 for my needs! :) :apple:

I think you should set up a 2nd display and just run parallels. Probably easier than keep re-booting.

Nicholas Mosher
Nov 1, 2008, 02:16 PM
I've heard that AutoCAD has compatibility issues with Parallels... is there any truth to this?
-----
Although I really liked the 30" ACD, it wasn't in my budget. This setup alone was close to $4500!
To be honest, I'm not sure the 30" would have worked in our small office... I do have limited space as I'm sure you can see.
Another 23" ACD might be in the works... I'll have to figure out another way to illuminate my desk though, as my favorite lamps will be displaced.

Someday when I build my own home (or rebuild an old one) I'll be able to design a workspace that allows more displays.
It's definitely a setback to not have everything up and available to work on at once. Oh well... I can manage with this "compromise"... :D

I have it BUT, there are two large power surge protectors in that bin with so many wires that the Signum won't hold everything. The power brick to the ACD is on the Signum as well as a Firewire hub and a couple other things.

The wires don't bug me much and I'm not investing any time in fixing things now that I am leaving come end of year.

At least they're all in one bin. ;)

Hah, that's too bad then about the signum. I really jammed mine up...it's holding power bars, modems, etc.

Yeah, I guess the bin is better than nothing. besides the wires show way more in picture than in real life. Again, I love the display...can't wait til I'm older and can actually have a need for such a big/nice monitor, for now my 24" white iMac will suffice.

TBH the 24" iMac is nothing to sneeze at and you're right, I don't see the wires and my chair is always pushed in. So ... short of someone wanting to actually come over and take care of my wires for me, there they shall stay. When I move I think I'll hire a man toy for a month to do all the little things I haven't any desire to do ... and some things I do have a desire to do. :D

30" is nice and I started to get wiggly about the rumored updates as well. Once that new ACD hit I was nearly giddy knowing it wasn't something I'd ever want to purchase.

Hello

Been following this forum for a while now, but just got registered so i thought this is a nice place to start.

So here it is, my home desk

quick question..isn't there an App called "[something]clock" on the iTunes store where you can make your Touch or iPhone look like your screensaver?

bobfitz14
Nov 1, 2008, 10:08 PM
here's my desk. got the table this weekend...still need a little storage box and a small desk light then a ACD. i'll wait until the new ones come out and grab a keyboard also and a stand.

I was in Expose this morning and thought it might be a cool shot.

You've probably see my set-up in this thread before, so I won't bore you with the details beyond: 6 monitors on a single Mac Pro, and I write software.

do you like what you do? (writing software). i'm kindddd of considering something computer-based when i go to college. but not really sure...

Yeah ,I'm so disappointed in the new monitors. I got the iMac because I like the all-in-one factor and I'm so glad I have a white (matte) one. I dread the day when I will upgrade to one with a glossy screen...I know next year when snow leopard comes out they'll have some super fast iMac out that I'll want but I won't want to get it due to the fact the screen will be glossy, and I don't need a Mac Pro at all. My next computer will probably be a new iMac and although I prefer matte screens, I'll have to live with glossy. My MacBook Air's screen is beautiful even though it's glossy. Despite it being much brighter than my iMac screen, I still prefer working on the iMac screen.

This weekend I got so annoyed with the look of my desk and my setup. Even extensive rearranging wouldn't help. So I decided that it's time for a new look for my desk. I went to the local hardware store and bought some laminated film for furniture. Now I love the new look of my desk! :) The film did cost me about 23 Euros and it took 2 hours.

do you like what you do? (writing software). i'm kindddd of considering something computer-based when i go to college. but not really sure...

Yes, it's about all I've ever wanted to do. It's not for everyone though. A degree in computer science is (or used to be, I've been out of school for a while) a lot of work, especially in math. In general I'd suggest double majoring if you can. I always wish I had double majored in CS and Latin.

The day to day aspects of writing software is very different from a CS degree. I enjoy both though. There's a lot more to CS than "computers"; CS isn't really about programming at all. But to be an excellent programmer, you'll need to understand the science of computing, somehow.

Bottom line: I'd recommend waiting to declare a major as long as possible. Take classes in various subjects you think you're interested in. Don't get in too much of a hurry if you're not sure. The first few CS classes are usually weed out classes, same as with many majors (Physics comes to mind). Slog through it. Don't drink too much.

Hope this helps.

up until this year i have been very good at math in school. i also like screwing around with computers a bit, granted i won't do too much because if i ever lost my school files i'm *********. i've taken two computer courses at school, one was a joke where we did nothing and the other was a Web Design course, it was fun and all but that's obviously not programming.

i know for a fact that for college i'm considering something lawyer/gov't based, computer based (something that i can make money off of though), or something business based. i know the three aren't too related, but i have interests in all three.

thanks for the input :D

Yeah, but an even better movie with Kevin Spacey as a supporting actor is "Se7en". Perhaps the most thrilling movie I've seen this year, except maybe for "The Sixth Sense".

Well, if a new thread was created every time one of the threads broke 1000 posts, then we would already be one part seven, if not eight (not counting the first thread, since when it was broken into part two, they had only just implemented that rule).

Yeah, but an even better movie with Kevin Spacey as a supporting actor is "Se7en". Perhaps the most thrilling movie I've seen this year, except maybe for "The Sixth Sense".

that movie for some reason scared the crap outta me when i was little. don't know why. i think it was the gluttony part that scared me.

but i ditched my brother's infinity speakers and bought myself some kef's. even thought they are smaller, they are a lot clearer. will take pictures once i get front stands. probably after my vacation.

That line of HP Monitors are by far the best standalone monitors I have used. They are glossy and that is the way I like them. I wish I had the 22" version. That one has an amazing stand that lets you move it how you please as well as rotation it. I currently I have my iMac connected to it through VGA and my 360 connected to it via DVI. The presets make both look great when I use either.

Plus, it has the same silver(alu)/black theme for a long time (I had this monitor for almost two years), which matches my new iMac, as well as my alu desk, black speakers, alu lamp, black/silver keyboard, black/silver scanner and black/silver printer....

EDIT - Here is more of my desk-room;

Main strip, with the iMac in my sig, Altec Lansing speakers (2.1) with a subwoofer in the corner section behind my 360. My iPod Touch is connected on a hand made dock next to the right speaker. There is a 3rd party media card reader sitting on the base of my iMac. Connected to my extended series of USB Hubs...

http://img355.imageshack.us/img355/8045/dsci0042rm3.jpg (http://imageshack.us)

The other strip of my desk. That is my HP printer and Canon scanner. I charge my cell phone right next to the printer, as you see covered there. It is just a Blackberry Curve. Under the corner is a 640gb HD used for backing up, and as a bootable drive for my Mac (I'm soon installing XP on it for experimenting). There is also a vertical wireless router directly connected to my iMac and 360. The wireless is now mostly for my cell phone and iPod Touch.

This is behind me when I sit. It is my AMD PC that I built a few years ago. It is also in the case of the first computer that I ever got. As well as the original keyboard, still working. It is connected to my TV currently showing a slideshow of my trip to Wyoming. I also have my Xbox and Nintendo 64 connected to the TV. You can see my huge Xbox collectoin (52 games, plus hundreds of demos), most games collected right before I got my 360 - when they were really cheap...

Really? I found the gluttony one quite tame, it was sloth and lust that freaked me out the most. Though really, lust was only really scary when you heard the guy's confession, since I couldn't actually see what was on the screen (damn old VHS).

As biased as this sounds, I would shy away from the XPeria mainly because it says Sony on it.

Hey guys!

Here's the deal; I bought a 24" Dell monitor to connect to my Macbook at my desk when I needed a bigger screen. Later, I purchased the 24" iMac. For a while, I had the iMac on the furthest left of my desk, with the external monitor at a semi-slant on the right of my desk. However, once I got the speakers, I had to place them on either side of my iMac (they use proprietary USB cables, and thus can't reach anywhere else). So, I was forced to push the extra display to my left, on a dresser and wicker basket, about a foot closer. Basically, the Dell is useless in it's current position (other than when playing my Xbox 360).

I'd really, *REALLY* like to have both monitors set-up in a usable fashion; as I could really use the screen real estate. Too bad, though, I'm at a loss for how to do it. Does anybody have any ideas at all?

This is mine, its a bit messy still as I just moved my stuff onto a new desk and found that its a bit small, so I've improvised with a stall (stool , not sure) to hold my MacBook. The pictures a bit poor because of the iPhone's camera :|

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3047/3004835099_b089faf851.jpg

Anyway the setup is:

Hack Semi-Pro
OS 10.5.5
Intel Xeon Dual Core 2.13GHz
3GB ECC RAM
250GB System Drive
1TB Media disk (2x 500GB disks Striped in OSX)
iMic Sound with JBL speakers
nVidia 8500GT 512MB Graphics
Linksys WMP300N wireless N card (OSX thinks its an Airport Extreme card :))
Hyundai 22" Monitor with DVI and VGA (which is good for a cheap monitor)
500GB Iomega disk/USB/Firewire hub (Media disk for my old Mac Mini, the Mac mini is with my sister now :()
320GB WD MyBook (Time machine for System drive)
LaCie External DVDRW

MacBook
2GHz C2D
2GB RAM
160GB HD

I want to get an Apple Wireless keyboard as that one is too wide. The Dell mouse I'm using is comfortable though so that will probably stay... I'm also looking for a 2 5.25" to 3 SATA bay converter as my disk needs seem to grow each month.

I tried Ubuntu on the Dell, I really did, but it just wasn't working how OSX does for me at home, so thats why I put OSX on there. I can't afford a Mac Pro.

We have a few of those stools at home, but admittedly not to store macbooks on! :p

I see you like your hard drive space! ...and i would agree about Ubuntu, i mean its ok but it just isn't as user friendly and compatible as OSX or even as XP! When something went wrong, i found the online documentation to be very unhelpful too. Ah well, all i have is a macbook now and thats great for me!

I replaced (http://www.ipodjuice.com) the battery about 9 months ago. Gets 20 hours continuous playback now, easily - better than new!

I love the firewire interface - keeps USB ports free, and it's 20GB, which is more than my lovely iPhone. There's something about this model. Probably because it was my first ever Apple product. I have the original buds, remote, dock, cable, instructions and box. Love this thing!

The thing is beautiful.

& how exactly is it least functional? The all touch interface is genius, and its so much better than the click wheel. Click wheel you have to move to the button you want to press, with the 3G you can touch the button, back on the scroll wheel.

And the cheap clicky noise of the click wheel totally puts me off. The 3G feels solid yet elegantly designed... superb iPod. GUTTED mine was only 20GB and distraught with it's death :(

3rd gen has always been loved for its beauty. But hey beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I think you are in the minority here, because from all my internet reading, the 3rd gen has always been touted for its looks. No annoying and boring click wheel. Glass like exterior. Nice glow. Nice size. Even the interface. Personally I hate the new split screen.


Sorry to be off topic, but I just had to. Maybe we should start a 3rd gen Appreciation thread in the Ipod section.

Nov 6, 2008, 07:00 PM
I miss my 3G. I think it was one of the nicer looking iPods, but I can't agree that it was as functional as the 4G onwards, with the Click Wheels. Touch sensitive = must use heat-capacitive digit/finger/penis whatever to press a button. It was a bitch using during the winter when I was wearing gloves.

The same can be said for the iPod touch/iPhone, but at least the touchscreen is a part of the core functionality of the device instead of just "ooh lookit, it's touch-sensitive" as in the 3G.

Oh. I don't have a problem with that, I actually like a few physical buttons so you know what you're hitting. Plus, depending on the age of the iPod, you can't even hear the wheel. Mine is a year old sixth gen and you can only hear the wheel if you're really paying attention in a quiet place. Otherwise, who really cares?

The 3G ipod was the least functional because you have to move your fingers so much more to access the controls. With all of the others, all the buttons are in one place.

As for it being ugly, obviously that's just my opinion. To me, it just looks like they realized at the last second that they forgot the buttons and stuck them on. It has none of the elegance of the models that put the buttons on the wheel.

I wouldn't say button placement reduces functionality. Big whoopie you have to move your thumb 1 inch to the button. The warm red glow makes it look elegant to me, instead of a run of the mill gray circle click wheel.

It's a decent desk. I like that you can take the center section out and move the desk along a whole wall. And how you can adjust if the PC sits on the left or right of the keyboard tray. The pc holder is very wobbly though. The keyboard tray sucks too. It was strong but the ball bearings didn't work too well after about a year. I don't have the keyboard tray on it anymore, that is why I switched my setup to have the iMac on my wooden desk.

to join in on the 3rd gen ipod discussion; that was my first ipod as well. i loved the backlit keys although prefer the click wheel of newer gen models. while i'm still using a 5th gen, i think the metal front of the current generation is the nicest as far as durability is concerned. an awesome update would be to have glowing icons on the click wheel!

Earlier this week I restored my MacBook from a Time Capsule backup:

I swear it was on "Less than a minute remaining" for over an hour.

It gave me that too when I did that coming from my macbook to my new macbook pro. I restarted it once thinking it was hanging, but after around an hour it went fine.

I've made a few changes to my setup.

Firstly I've picked up a new Apple Macbook, which is an amazing little laptop. It certainly breaks new ground. I've also bought a Apple Cinema Display. It's also great. I'd love one of the new 24in ones, but they are bit too pricey! I've also got a new HP all in one printer.

Yeah it's a great wallpaper I've used it for years. I think it's called of me and you or something along those lines.

Custom made by myself, didn't take too long, just an hour or two. Just a spare chair base and a racing seat, with a piece of mdf to adapt the holes.

Love the desk ^^^^

Thanks I made it myself. It's huge which I love. I keep threatening to remake it, but I can't justify the time. As I've got far more important diy jobs to do first.

The Z-4s are seriously a set of solid speakers. I've had these for a while now and have pushed them pretty hard yet they still sound as perfect as the day i got them. The sub is surprisingly powerful too.

Yeah, its amazing how much better it feels after you've re-arranged your room or even just your desk.
I think your desk has inspired me to finally build a desk. Got any more pictures of it? I'm definitely going to make something this winter, especially since I'm planning on buying a desktop to along with my Macbook. :)

I'm a Web Designer as well as an IT consultant. I work for myself. I do a bit of everything really.

The desk didn't take long to build, I've done two now. The first is mine the second was my girlfriends, however she now has a netbook so doesn't need the desk.

I did a short write up on the build here which may help you.

I like them a lot. My friend had them from a while ago and I always wanted a pair. I met a kid when I got to college who works at Best Buy here and he got me a sweet deal, so it only seemed right to take the plunge and get a set for myself.

The bass is amazing on them if you have it all the way up. The first day I got them, I had the people in the room below me come up and tell me that it was too loud (I didn't even have the volume half way).

And since I'm living in a dorm and probably will be in an apartment soon, I like how they are compact and sleek... so they fit well on my small desk, but still put out really good sound.

Thanks! I'm probably going to swap the Samsung and the Acer displays, since the Samsung's panel and picture are quite a bit better. I'm just a bit antsy about it because I sort of accidentally melted some of the plastic on the top of the Samsung with my Ikea lamp. I have NO idea why Ikea lamps produce so much damn heat. The diodes near the top of the LCD actually died temporarily. The plastic is warped for good. :( I'll need to cover it with a webcam or a speaker or something. Probably speakers, since mine are dying. I'll post new pictures when the speakers get set up!

Old school. I love it. :)
Thank you.:)
I see a lot of these G4 iBooks are still holding strong, I think they are one of the most resilient portables apple has ever made; internal hardware AND the plastic case. They could take a lot of abuse before failure. Props for keeping it around! I'm holding onto a 12" PB because it's just amazing and is still my favorite mac :p
Definitely. I love this thing to death, and wouldn't trade it for anything. It's dependable, tough and fast considering its age. I hope I can keep using it for years to come. :)

Hold on to that PB for sure, it's an excellent machine that many people still use everyday, and even more who are looking for one because it's such a great machine.:apple:

'tis true the G4 had some video problems, but these were usually found in the earlier models. And I can tell you from experience, the G3's were much worse.:p

Can anyone help me; I am looking for a slim desk. It would need to be about 1 to 1 1/2 feet wide and decently long; about 8 feet or so.

Anyone know anything like that?

Yeah, I had a G3 and a G4, they both died after only one month of use. The G3 had the infamous video problem, and the G4 had a broken backlight inverter. :(
