Is that another laptop under your desk?

BTW: Great monitor. I have that one on my cube. (Soon to be on a G5 if Apple ever releases some updates!)

it's not a great scanner to be fair. OK for non-pro stuff though.

UPDATE: i've changed the piccie to overcome iPhoto's feeble resizing skills. WTF is that all about - I've never resized in iPhoto before but am shocked that I have to use Photoshop to get a decent result.

p.s. thanks for the feedback guys!

p.p.s. in the new photo you can actually make out the band names on my ticket board [prepares to be flamed for musical taste]

My pro keyboard was never unwrapped. :-)

The volume knob works fine. Naturally, it wont work with optical (OSX doesnt even have control over that) however all the programmable buttons work without fault. F12 Ejects my superdrive like it should, the shopping button opens www.ebay.com, etc.

All the buttons are custom-configurable too.

/me hates wires :-) , which is why you can hardly see any when you look below/behind my desk.

lately my desk has stayed pretty similar to what it is. I have a pile of books near my table and keep the papers in yet another pile but otherwise nothing that often.

"...clear mind has clear desk...."

I've looked at the desks of "powerful" figures, and they all seemed to have nice, clean and clear desks.

It's funny but I found it tough to keep my desk clean all the time. Maybe because of high entropy, especially when I think am busy and struggle to do many things.

I posted a dual-CRT pic of my dual G4 800 setup...and wanted to post an updated pic since I've gotten new screens, keyboard, mouse. I was going to get a dual 2GHz G5 setup, but this dual G4 is so fast that I really am not hurting for speed - so am waiting for August or so for dual 3GHz G5 and got these screens in the meantime. Added a GF4Ti as well.

Aww man you rawk! Now if only I could afford another cinema display I could make my setup as cool as yours :]

I'm really going to think about getting a dual 3ghz g5 when they come out, however. I would love one and if the time is right there might be one under my desk.
....

However that's not too likely. Glad to see the dual cinemas are working wel for ya XD

Well, finally contributing to the thread. While I do not have a camera, I did manage to snag the pictures of my G4 from the previous owner's .Mac website before he took them down. And while this isn't a true setup shot, it will have to do until I become un-cheap and lay down for a camera.

Anyways, here you go.

I found it at Meijer's for twenty-something dollars.

Okay, my messy dorm room. There's my dual 450 with SlowSilver™ handles, my Yamaha 2.1 speakers, my Logitech Cordless MX Duo, crappy Gateway monitor, clear Apple PlainTalk microphone, my TV, seasons 2, 3 and 4 of Babylon 5, the GameBoy Pocket, and a GameCube on the floor. Yeah, it's messy, but it works.

Next thing I want to replace is the monitor. I was thinking the highly recommended NEC/Mitsubishi FE791SB, a 17" that does 1280x1024 at 85 Hz, but I'm a bit uneasy about spending yet more money on computer stuff. Even though I do need a new monitor (the current one isn't just crappy, but it's on its last legs as well, and needs to be hit once every few weeks), I don't have much money to spend on one. When I do get one though, I know that I'll be getting a high quality one. I'd love an LCD but they're way too expensive right now.
