I'm guessing those "workstations" weren't necessarily used for work much of the time.
I move back in on the 9th. We're not quite that bad, but depending on how many machines me and my cousin take we could have a few.
Actually we did very little PC gaming. Some, sure, but not much. My roommate and I that had the majority of the machines -- 8 between the two of us, including the two laptops -- were both just really nerds that had tons of projects going on. I was a computer science major, he was electrical engineering. I always had my file server on linux, another machine running Windows that did bitch work like downloading files or playing movies while I did the real work on my main computer, etc, and my roommate used a similar setup to experiment with new stuff or distribute computing load.
As computers have gotten more powerful, and since I've grown out of a lot of the tinkering I used to do and instead desire compactness (not to mention ditching Windows moving to Mac), I've slowly consolidated over the years until I'm down to just the two machines I use now -- my desktop and my laptop.
Ya, my cousin is the gamer. Between the computer, 360, and tv it's amazing he leaves the room for class.
I used to play do too much gaming my first few years of HS, but I can hardly bring myself to play any more. Too much wasted time with not much to show for it. I spend a lot of time on the computer, but it's more tinkering like you said. My newest desktop is only a Celeron D 2.9 (p4dual, original hackintosh config.) but they're just used for trying stuff out on most of the time.
I need to fix my file server. Power went off. Not sure what exactly is wrong. The hdd works in an external enclosure and the machine will boot w/o the hdd, but with the drive in it turns on then the power keeps dropping.
Might I ask what program you used to make that first network diagram? Or is it a program at all. It looks like you possibly just took stock pictures of devices and somehow photoshopped them? If so, you did a fine job! I'm wanting to make a similar diagram.
Yeah the older one (bottom one) is Vizio. The newer, more colorful one I made with my bitmap graphics program of choice (FireWorks), and I just used cutout images of the products I found via Google image search and drew the rest of it myself.
