    i've seen a few of these threads in the past and i enjoy them much more than snapshots of people's desktops... it's interesting and always educational to actually see how other people use their computers... it also tells a lot about people... tell's whether some are organized or extremely geeky (millions of computer in small space ;)

    an older thread like this helped me tweak my computer setup so i'm slightly more productive... i've found the perfect arrangement for my dual displays (finally!)

    i'm only a high school student and don't have many resources (and am limited on what i can construct in my room), but one day i hope to have a setup similar to dukestreet's media lab... that thing was awesome

    anyways... here's my current setup... please post your's!

    My desk...
    I have a long, short room, so I had to take two pics and stick them together. Very rough job, but you get the idea.

    wait a minute... your priorities must be a little bit confused... you have a cinema display on your server when you have a smaller crt on your desktop...

    maybe i'm just confused :confused: :D

    The server is a multi-purpose machine, it does more than just sit there and serve. It just gets called 'the server'

    wow. That tower looks precarious up there.... I'm sure it's fine in real life, but in the photo it looks SO on the edge---ready to fall down.

    Cool set up though. And nice system 7 box. :)

    My MediaLab

    I've posted this before, but I'll do it again, seeing as how it will be changing drastically in a few months.

    We're putting in a new full bathroom in the basement, almost finished, and this what it used to look like. Right now I'm stuck in the corner of the room, where the 21" monitor is, with crap stored all around me, stuff moved there while the other half of the basement is being worked on.

    It is in my basement. There are two windows, inset in the boxes near the ceiling.

    My new setup might be upstairs, I'm not sure at this point. We'll have to wait until the basement is cleaned up.

    those are all nice setups

    mine is so boring and not worth posting

    i have two desks;

    1) with ibook, epson 740 and lexmark printers, and an hp scanner

    2) with compaq laptop and epson 480 sxu printer

    ...and i really like to do as much computing from bed with either laptop to make things comfy:p

    My Setup

    Its very ugly at the moment. We had an addition added to our house and we never got around to redoing the computer room. I plan on painting the room soon, but here is what I have.
    This is what is in the pic
    iMac
    Perfoma
    HP printer
    Old Color stylewriter 2500

    here's mine, there is supposed to be a 19 TV on top of the VCR. The Sawtooth has a one gig upgrade in it, and the pismo, painted blue, is going G4 as soon as the box from Nuec gets here.

    Can you post a better photo of your blue pismo? It looks cool, but I can hardly see it...
