Nice setup!

A nautical chart on the wall - do you sail?

Here's mine


Left to right...

UK Freeview TV with SKY on AV input, 3" CCTV monitor, HD Freeview PVR, USB fly lead, new iMac ( 10 days old ) , 2 x 2gb odd/even days docs backup USB flash drives, Audio Y splitter loop for QT screen recording movies, 500gb Time Machine, Wireless mouse, mouse mat double sided taped to desk, ....... USB keyboard, I just didn't get on with the wireless keyboard.

Behind curtains, view across countryside.

Up until a few hours ago, both my iMacs were on the desk, trying to establish a network link, to sync up folders, Wireless and Bluetooth worked best / easiest.
Problems with authorisation, ended up using DVD-RW for transfer.
Older iMac now sits in a cupboard as backup.

Is that running through the iMac or is it a stand-alone system?
How is it connected to the camera? (wifi, hardwired cable, etc)

It's a stand-alone system.

CCTV cameras, cabled to a 4 input CCTV motion detecting HDD recorder, ( wireless ones interfere with my Bluetooth / Wifi ) with two video outputs, one to the 3" monitor, the other to a 15" TV (AV input) adjacent to the recorder, just by my side.

Quad split available, but hardly used.

Basically so I can keep on eye on the front, my study is in the rear of my house.
Especially for Apple deliveries !!

This is what happens when the contents of my brain spill out into the real world.

Is that a bottle from I Dream of Jeannie?

EDIT: Oh yes, I see Jeannie right back there now. Nice!
