Mine is setup in a glossy black Raidmax Ninja case. The monitor is the same glossy black. My laptop is flat black.

Main machine, Dell Dimension 4400, mostly black.

Secondary (old) machine, AMD K6-2 - beige, with fashionable tea rings on top!

some other POS comp- also beige. cyrix, need I say more?


two laptops- IBM Thinkpad 755CDV (still works great, but not the battery or AC adapter, so I need to use the dock to use it) (black)


Toshiba Satellite Pro 440CDX, 133Mhz Pentium. Gray.

    Okay, I have to get in the picture game now too...

    Used my PDA phone for the pictures... sorry for the horrifying quality.

    This is the inside of my server:

    You can see a fan in-between the two hard drives...
    Closer view of Fan:


    My server at a distance (middle computer there... the one on the far right is my old server)


    My laptop (my primary computer) :



    This is my backup computer:

    (Actually, its all mechanical, but, whats the difference?)
    Currently my project is to fix the A key, the head of it went flying off one day... I need to get some JB Weld.

      I can totally play games on it if I wanted to, you just have to hold the variables in your head.

      All these darned pics  ;)  ;D - guess I'd better disgrace myself and show my total mess desk area! Tidyness is not my strength!!  Crap pic - available light - real quick.  Lenovo backup is out of shot along to left - doesn't look a lot different (or tidier!)..

      HP 4600 tower on right - well above which is Pixma 3000 - and higher up still on right are two externals.  Box on tower unit is temporary (was meant to be - it holds all CD's pertinent to HP install). 

      Twin Acer wide screen LCD mons, HP keyboard, old faithful web cam under right one.  Above right on main one is Kingston USB hub.  Upper right of keyboard is Direcway 6000 satellite modem.

      The monster steel frame is suspended from ceiling and used to hold a heavy weight NEC Accusync CRT deal - it works tho to support the Acer - other Acer is on a lashed up deal made out of scrap.  :D

      There ya go - everything else is mostly junk and paper (sometimes those notes taken on scrap which you never can find again!)



      (now goes to hide in embarrassment!  :P )
      Ain't technology great - until it goes wrong!
