Really? And why is that? Seems to be working OK over here. But if you know one which is better, please share that information.

ImgFTW seems down. Imageshack is horribly slow...

Imageshack is working perfectly fine here as well, but here's some more free photo hosts for you all to try ( I have and they work great ):

Next step... buy a nice set of blinds... I should tidy the cables a bit more too. Also, I need a new chair, I hate this colour. White filing cabinets too. Also a nice light. Otherwise, I'm quite happy wit hit :p

Also, I always use localhostr. Nice app and if you can get an account, it's even more useful.

Thanks! ImgBox is working like a charm, like the interface. Almost identical to ImgFTW. Simple and effective. :)

BTW is that an external soundcard or a mediaplayer I see next to your monitor? Still looking for a nice external soundcard.

Thanks for the URL.

What type of lights did you use between your desk / wall? Are those LED strips by any change? Looks nice. :)

I'm guessing he used something like 'DIODER' lighting strips available from your local IKEA store

Wouldn't go as far as to call IKEA "local" :p Most of the time your closest will be an hour away. :laugh:

I bought the 2600K for $200 at micro center on the 2 day special, I feel that it's a fair MSRP compared to what Intel normally charges. I keep forgetting what CPU prices use to be during Pentium 4 and Athlon 64 days.

My home workstation. This is pretty much its day-to-day state. I do like to try and keep it tidier but when its in constant use it tends to get a bit messy. The cable management also needs some serious work but its not intrusive so I keep putting it off until I have time to sort it (No excuse, I know!).

Workstation. Thinking of selling the LCD arm and monitor and going dual screen. (Excel for dummies book is not mine. The teddy however, is.)

Left, main machine. Right, arcade machine.

My HP Microserver, old Cambridge Audio amp and some very messy cabling. :blush:

My home office - still running my almost 5yrs old ThinkPad T61p which has been upgraded - SSD, 500GB 2nd HDD and 4GB RAM. I'm also running a HP Microserver to backup this as well as my other half's laptop (ThinkPad X121e).

Randy, that room looks pretty sweet. Do you have any blinds/curtains on that window?

Thanks. Yes there is a rollerblind that comes down. I also have some solar film on the window glass so it keeps the room cool and during the day I can see out but noone can see in :)

It is hard to say what it cost me, I got the steel for free and the chair for free from work as they were throwing them out but I had to buy a lot of tools to finish the job and paint, consumables etc so I would estimate about $1500 but almost none of it is on the actual desk.

I really don't think there would be a market for something like this, it was just something to make while I taught myself to weld (I work in IT). The chair is very heavy and although I have a design in my head for a more refined version that is also made of wood, I won't have the time to make it for a while as I have other projects that need tending to.

I have a playlist of videos I made during the build, you can see how it started out as a really terrible idea and evolved to something better.

Cheers.

I'd buy it in a heart-beat :D

On a side note, everyone has this extra clean look but I got all these cables running around everywhere :(
