Been a few months since I last posted the home office. Got a new ThinkPad (W530) to replace the old T61p - mainly because of the number of VMs i'm now needing to run as it was running fine still even after almost 5 years!

Got once of the Nokia Bluetooth NFC wireless speakers a few months ago for free (it's beside the lamp) which is quite nice although the W530s speakers are pretty good so don't need to use it when i'm at home.

What drove you to put your computer over the radiator like that? Seems like you'd be more apt to having overheating issues, and burning your leg

Good point - I don't have this radiator turned on so it never gets hot. Radiators tend to be underneath windows so you don't have a choice in many buildings.

I've got a radiator on the wall where my desk is too, not many options in this room to set it out anywhere else though, doesn't seem to cause it any problems and the actual PC is on the floor away from the radiator so its just the screen really

Tada. Sort of uni dorm room. The second shot is what my lighting is usually like but phone cams don't like darkness. The big book is Head First Design Patterns (Java). Keyboard is a Microsoft Wireless Comfort Keyboard 5000 and I love it!

Dell U2412M on a Vaio Z13M9E (which is a beast, 13" ultrabook-ish thin'n'light with a DVD drive, 2xSSD in RAID0 and a GPU that can handle Assassins Creed 3 at 1920x1080 at very playable rates! Indeed, power in a tiny package.). I could use a multimon setup but the difference in DPI is too big and my laptop is too far to be able to read without glasses. Laptop is 1600x900@13", Dell is 1920x1200@24".

And the Starbucks cups are unused. I just like the holiday cups for the atmosphere. I also don't drink coffee, but Starbucks hot chocolate is pretty amazing. I pretty much only drink water and smoothies.

(PS: My laptop screen is dirty because teachers constantly touch it to point out things. After over a year I sort of don't bother cleaning it daily anymore.)

it's good to have lots of coffee when you're **** faced in the morning. I hate mornings. the worst mornings are when i don't have my coffee. then all hell breaks loose. muggerfugger is always prepared if he maintains the coffee supply. excellent.

Well I think coffee is disgusting :p

I actually get around without any real amounts of caffeine at all. I don't drink coffee, tea, fizzy drinks, ... I survive on bread, vegetables, fruit and chicken :D

My mom doesn't drink coffee either, and tea only when there are visitors. No other caffeinated stuff either. I guess I just never 'learned' to drink it. I don't mind :p
