Post your (Real) working environment... (Messy Desk)

Ok, we've all glanced at the Post your Setup thread but I mean come on are all of our items always perfect, our ipods and iphones not always docked, or perpendicular to each other, shiny and clean. We're Mac's but come on no one is that clean.... so we've all seen this...

Thumb resize.

Now I wana see THIS...

Thumb resize.

So come on, step away from your desk AS YOU ARE snap a photo with anything camera phone p&s just do it. DONT MOVE ANYTHING!!!! (please blur our things minors shouldn't see :-P )

MODS feel free to move merge or just plain delete, I understand my desk is messy and may be offensive to some


Just realized im gona feel like a reallll slob if im the only poster :P

Oh go on then. Sorry for the poor quality, all I have is my phone on me at the moment.

Also, what's that plate of food on the right of your picture OP? Looks like a plate full of bacon...

I'm outrageously neat and tidy and my work area has to be (almost) surgically clean before I can use the computer. I have a pack of antibacterial wipes in the draw and always wipe everything before and after use.

Not a thread for me I'd wager

Good thread idea. I think the title of "Post your messy desk" suits it better!

Posted this in the setup thread a few months ago:

Thumb resize.

That was towards the end of the semester. It's a bit cleaner now, but not much.

I love the idea of this thread as I dont buy for a second that people's setup's are as clean and spiffy as most people's are in the other thread. If they are then I think its safe to say that Apple users are far more anal than PC users, lol. Anyways I had previously posted these in that thread but they certainly belong in here much more than in there.

As I explained in that previous post, we are buliding an addition on our home that will eventually become my new computer room/office/photo studio and I had to move my computer set up into one of our storage rooms until it is finished. It was much cleaner than this when I first set it up but it has just degraded as time has gone on as I just have no room for anything. The good news is the addition on our home is in the final stages and I wont have to stay in here for much longer. My new computer room is going to be a 1000 times better and 10 times bigger.

Believe me, its much worse than it looks, lol. You cant even see my printers or my Lacie Raid as they are buried under boxes.

I even have Hard drives on the ground.

For some reason, whenever I buy a new computer component (be it a card reader, and external hard drive, or a USB hub), I have to make my working area completely spotless. It's this weird OCD tick I have.

Just got rid of my iMac (feels so empty!) because I'm buying the new Haswell rMBP when it arrives!

I'm prepping for my exam, so it's WAY TOO MESSY!



Later this week, it will be clean again like this ():



(well, without the iMac and KRK monitors! Bought the Boston Acoustics 5.1 a few months ago!).

My work setup.

Sorry for the crappy quality, taken with my iPhone in fairly low light.

I am a Mechanical Engineer and work with SolidWorks most of the day. my screen looks tiny in the picture, but it is actually 24".
