It's a slow sunday, so lets see some pictures!

I wasn't sure where exactly to post this, so I figured this was as good as anywhere. I'm making the "Switch" as soon as my new 15"AL shows up, and I'm having a hard time setting up my "workstation" area. We just moved into a new place, so I need a new desk anyway.

If anyone has pictures of their home office setup or publishing/designing setup, let's see them!

I can post my old school wintel setup, but I don't think anyone wants to see that!

On with the show...

OK, I'll start it off. This is a picture of my desk from a couple of years ago, or the dark ages...

Here is my setup:

http://homepage.mac.com/filmmaker2002/PhotoAlbum2.html

There are a few changes however. The Palm m500 is now a Tungsten T2, and the TiBook is now an Aluminum 15" 1.25Ghz Powerbook. Other than that...it's all the same.
It's just an ordinary day and it's all your
state of mind, at the end of the day, you
just gotta say it's alright!

filmmaker2002: Nice setup. There sure is a LOT of wires underneath the desk! Just curious. How much are you selling your 667 PowerBook for. I'm thinking of maybe selling mine too.

Actually, I sold it about a month ago for $1600. Sorry...I gotta do something about those wires. I'm thinking of putting a sheet of aluminum or something at the back to cover the "rat's nest" BTW, my Powerbook was a maxed out VGA 667, 1GB RAM, 48GB Drive, Airport. I was lucky to get $1600 a months ago, so good luck with yours. Now I am just waiting for my Aluminum beauty.

Hey, where did you get your chair? Mine does not have padded arm rests, so I'm going to get rid of mine and get one with it.

SolidAGE-

I think we have the same monitor (or did, I sold mine). I'm talking about the Sony one in your picture. I don't remember the model number, but man, it was a great CRT! I still wish I had it!

Lattimer: Thanks. The desk is a Futura desk or something I got from Office Max. It is like $179 this week, I saw it in the ad in the Sunday paper.


CheesePuff: I got the chair from Best Buy when I used to work there. Employee discounts are very good things...even if you feel like a used car salesman. It was like a $179 chair I got for $60.
