Vitalis, jgpaiva?

When I was a kid, Vitalis was a very popular men's hair tonic (my grandfather used it).
Ah Ah Ah... That's a jug of portuguese water Wink

A somewhat eccentric grandfather, AndyM? Portugal's a long way to go in order to fix one's hair…

Cleaned out my room a bit after helping a close friend move out of his parents house (and realizing how much of a packrat he is, and then in turn realizing how much I am as well) so I took some crappy cellphone pictures of my current setup now. It hasn't changed much unless you look for things (which if you want to do, last years pics are here. Also, for the extra curious, 2009 images are available here.

Noticeable changes from last year:

Here are today's pictures

In updated pics (from left to right): 19" HP LCD monitor (for sale, actually), 4th gen iPod Nano hooked to my Jenson dock/radio/alarm clock, my gaming rig (now with liquid cooling! cheesy), the new monitor for said gaming rig (ASUS VH242H 23.6") with 5.1 setup, then on the ground is my personal "server" for file storage and tedious, low-priority tasks (set it and forget it), then my new iBook G4 sitting next to my ASUS 1005HA-P.

EDIT: The black Compaq laptop from '09 is not lost: it sits atop the server right now

Directly behind where I was taking these pictures are 3 more almost-working (no OS) computers, along with a 17" Dell CRT monitor (also trying to sell, ugh) and a somewhat frightening amount of cables that I have yet to put away properly (that is what the cabinet is for that the iBook/netbook are sitting on).

Not the most ergonomic space... Mostly I have been working from my client's offices or from cafés and so haven't had a work-space at home, this setup is new. It's a corner of my 6 year old daughters room (she has moved her bed into her borthers room) the screen is one I found in the basement (must be ten years old) and the Macbook is on a notebook stand.

Interesting looking back through this thread - as it goes back six years - I wonder how different our desktops are now compared to back then.

Here's my 2012 setup (there's a large Wacom Cintiq screen and machine/s somewhere else in the room under a load of crap). No doubt, this will seem quite inappropriate in another six years time; I suspect we'll all have giant fold out tablet displays running Micrsoft Metro XL.

I cheated. The colour blocks are just part of the background, i.e. the wallpaper image. The colours are the (x11) CSS3 colour names - something I just thought might be handy to use so I don't have to remember things like #DCDCDC when editing CSS; instead I'll just look at the colour names and type gainsboro (which is #DCDCDC).

Source here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_colors (did a screengrab and arranged things in Photoshop to create the wallpaper).

@c.gingerich, did you edit "my" photo and gave it extra light? The couch on your photo seems brighter than on my version.

I finally got around to taking pictures after my last build...

http://imgur.com/a/6c7Lo

I'll also attach one of them here.



The two monitors on the left are the new pc. The one to the right of those is the old one... and the other one is my mac. Oh.. the floating one is my ipad.

I use multiplicity to control my old PC, though I have a bluetooth Logitech k811 attached to it, my mac, and my ipad.

Here are some photos of when I was trying out a 4K 39" TV as my monitor:


39" TV with my now-dwarfed 26" monitor peeking over the top.


39" TV with the 26" hiding behind.

As stated in the thread linked above, I felt that the 39" TV was just too huge to be conducive to working at my PC and I ended up returning it.
